PVA invites your participation in this juried all-media exhibit, which seeks to educate, inspire, and develop  greater interest in the democratic process. Artifacts and stories detailing the involvement of Monterey Bay  residents in historic and current voting rights struggles will serve as the backdrop for the exhibit. 
We ask you to submit your visual interpretations to the question, "What does the right to vote mean to me,  my community, and/or my country?" Subject of artwork could include (but is not limited to): current and/or  past voter suppression issues; loss/gain of voting rights to under-represented groups; meaning of the youth  vote; and issues that you can or should be able to influence through your vote.
Two of the jurors for this exhibit are Lucien Kubo and Consuelo Alba.

Welcome to our New Executive Director!
 Linda Martin, a long time resident of the Pajaro Valley, has joined our PVA staff as Executive Director. A marine scientist, educator, field ecologist and business owner, Linda has served on founding boards of several non-profit organizations. Her experience in fundraising, including grant writing and donor management, coupled with expertise in administration and educational programing promises a bright future for her at PVA. So why is a woman with a B.S. in Wildlife Biology from UC Davis and an M.S. in Marine Science from San Jose State University working in an arts organization? "Because I have a passion for creative energy, and a desire to facilitate community connections."
