De Colores Art Group, the
Heritage Valley Quilters, the Santa Paula High

Oil Tankers: Delivering the
Energy that Fuels Our Lives.
April 24, 2013 through June 16, 2013
This exhibit looks at the impressive ships known as oil
tankers and the worldwide industry that transports oil. Due
to their economy of scale, oil tankers are an efficient and
cost effective means of transport, which, along with the
people who operate them, help provide fuel for our cars,
heat for our homes, and make possible many products that we
use in our daily lives. A brief history of shipping,
information on tanker design and technology, photographs,
and a documentary video will be on display.
