CI Maritime Museum drops anchor
By VCR Staff 02/20/2014
The Channel Islands Maritime Museum celebrated the completion of its relocation and renovation after a six-year-long process. The final piece was added this weekend — whale sculptures installed at the entrance, created by local artist Ed Cristal, who had a stroke a year into the process, pictured with his wife, Marlene, and completed with the help of Todd Wiggins, pictured with his wife, Catherine. The museum has been a fixture of the Channel Islands Harbor since 1991, originally located in the Fisherman’s Wharf. Channel Islands Maritime Museum is located at 3900 Bluefin Circle in Oxnard.
