An entrepreneurial, renaissance man, Andy simultaneously pursued a host of interests from studio art, choral music, spiritual philosophies, to business. He established the Museum from the former Carnegie Cultural Arts Center and had the vision to add to the permanent collection traditional realism art at a time when only abstraction was in favor.

Voth wrote the Resolution for the City of Oxnard’s first Art in Public Places Program which he administered from1985-1997. Of the over hundred exhibits he hosted at the Carnegie, one of the ones he was proudest of bringing to Oxnard was

“The Art of Jonathan Winters” in summer of 1990, complete with the world famous comedian/artist himself. A Celebration of Life service will be held 1pm August 8th at the Ventura Center for Spiritual Living at 101 So. Laurel St.
