Bell Arts Factory Featured Artist: MB Hanrahan

If you know the Ventura Arts Community, good chances are you know MB Hanrahan. If you are in or around Bell Arts Factory, you definitely know her. Her famous “Shadow Garden” imagery decorates our building and can be seen around town. Over this past Summer, she raised Ventura into the international level through her collaboration with Cuban artist Pedro Pulido when they created the Havana to Ventura mural.

We’ve been luck enough to have MB and her Universe here at Bell Arts Factory since the beginning. She was vital in everything coming together for us, with her tenancy leading the way for other accomplished artists to come in. This month, we are excited to honor MB as our Featured Artist. We will be showcasing her work in our lobby for October’s First Friday.
