Exhibition: Tattooed and Tenacious: Inked Women in California History

While many may think of tattoos as a recent trend, inked women have a long history in California. From the working-class Tattooed Ladies who performed in circus sideshows to the upper-class inked women who helped popularize the tattoo craze; visitors will discover the largely unknown history of women and tattoos through photographs, personal histories, and artifacts. “We are so excited to share the remarkable stories of these women and connect them with tattooing today”, said Heather Behrens, Curator, and Collections Manager at CIMM.  

Tattooed & Tenacious: Inked Women in California History will be open until Sunday, December 30, 2018.

World War One - History in the Making

November 11, 1918 - Germany agrees to an armistice and the fighting comes to an end at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month.

Join the Maritime as we take a look at the effects and tribulations of WWI. Called “The Great War” and more optimistically “The War to End All Wars,” World War I was an event that changed the world’s political map and the fabric of civilization. To honor the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, the Channel Islands Maritime Museum is unveiling its newest exhibit: WWI 100th Anniversary: History in the Making. The exhibit runs for a short time, Nov 10-26, 2018. Along with the exhibit of WWI artifacts and memorabilia; a special remembrance ceremony will take place on the 11th Day, Sunday, of the 11th month, Nov., at the 11th hour. Stay while we sound 6 bells on our ship's bell signifying the 11th hour and join friends, neighbors and members of the Channel Islands Museum as we observe 2 minutes of silence while we remember the 13 million, mainly young men, whose lives were lost in WWI.

The exhibit showcases from combatant nations, art medals and military decorations, as well as pictures, to illustrate the events and effects of World War I politically, economically and socially.

Notable artifacts on display include rare military decorations (awarded for heroism) such as the U.S. Congressional Medal of Honor and the French Croix de Guerre; personal items soldiers carried in the field; dog tags, military badges, and insignia.

Anacapa Island and the Channel Islands National Park

Covering just over a square mile and located about 12 miles from the nearest mainland in Oxnard, Anacapa Island may be small in size, but it’s rich with history — from sheepherders and rum runners to shipwrecks and a lighthouse.

Anacapa is comprised of three small islets; East, Middle, and West. Exploration is permitted on the east islet, accessed via the Landing Cove, and a small beach on the west islet called Frenchys Cove.   The middle islet and most of the western islet remain a wilderness area set aside for nesting seabirds, like the endangered California Brown Pelican.

Learn more about this beautiful place during a talk with Doug Williams.

Speaker Series: Life of an American Consul on the  African Coast in the Age of Sail

Speaker Series: Life of an American Consul on the  African Coast in the Age of Sail

In the diplomatic world, one of the least understood roles is that of consul. Of all the continents where American diplomats serve, Africa is the least familiar. Dr. Stephen Grant lived in sub-Saharan Africa for over 15 years, with a stint as a Peace Corps Volunteer and a career as a Foreign Service officer for the U.S. Government. He is an author with 5 books to his credit.

In an illustrated talk on October 17, Grant will turn his attention to Peter Strickland, a Connecticut Yankee who was born in the 1830s and died in the 1920s. Grant will address the following subjects of inquiry before giving the audience the opportunity to ask their own questions.

1--How did a sea captain from New London, CT become the first American consul to Senegal on the westernmost tip of Africa?  2--What did Peter Strickland do as consul in French-speaking West Africa from 1883 to 1905? 3--What kind of family life did Peter Strickland have during his long posting? 4—What communication did Consul Strickland have with his superiors at the State Department? 5--What legacy did Strickland leave behind?

The Honorary Consul from Senegal to L.A. has been invited to attend the event, at which there will be live music and an opportunity to purchase an inscribed copy of the speaker’s biography of Peter Strickland for $15. The $15 can be cash or check.

Channel Islands Maritime Museum’s Premier Fundraiser, Music at the Maritime, is given in appreciation of the many people and businesses that support the museum through their generous donations. These sponsorship's are responsible for helping to keep the museum doors open through the year. 
The 2017 event was an Italian-themed sit-down dinner with live entertainment featuring “An Evening with Frank & Dean,” starring Jim Brewster as Frank Sinatra & Paul Elia as Dean Martin. Our sponsors and their guests had great fun. 
This year’s 6th Annual Fundraiser, “Music at the Maritime” is promising to be another fun-filled evening, with a sit-down dinner buffet, live & silent auctions, and live entertainment by talented singing duo, Sharon and Jade Hendrix. Their show is dynamic and inspiring,  with special guests and stories. Sharon, a world-renowned back-up vocalist for the likes of Stevie Wonder, Tom Jones and Barry Manilow, and Jade, an up and coming singer-songwriter from right here in Ventura County. Their universal music and program speaks to young and old, offering an intimate insight into a beautiful familial bond for which music is the bedrock.
All sponsorships are appreciated and so very valuable in helping to keep the museum doors open for another year. Thank you for your continued support of the Channel Islands Maritime Museum, a community treasure.
