Exhibition Event: A Call to Action co-sponsored by The Fund
April 5 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Please join UCSB Library in celebrating its exhibition A Call to Action: Documenting Santa Barbara’s Art & Activism and hear from some of the contributors featured in the exhibition. Event will include a reception, curator tours, and zine making station.
This exhibition consists of works donated to two recent community archives: the Santa Barbara Black Lives Matter Community Archives and the COVID-19 Community Archives. This event is co-sponsored by The Fund for Santa Barbara.
This exhibit provides a space to document, preserve, and amplify the voices of our community; it is also an opportunity for us to connect with one another. The curation team of two librarians and one archivist selected items that represent individual stories, voices, and artworks created during and in response to our collective experiences during quarantine.
A companion exhibit, Documenting Chicana/o and Latinx Art & Activism in Los Angeles will be on display in the Learning Commons (First Floor, Mountain Side).
Submissions to these archives are ongoing, and UCSB Library invites Santa Barbara community members and UCSB students, faculty, and staff to submit original works that address how the pandemics of racial injustice and coronavirus have shaped their lives.
