Future Garden Art & Science Exhibition

Arboretum

A major art and science project by Newton Harrison and his late wife and lifelong collaborator Helen Mayer Harrison, Future Garden, is now on view at the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum and Botanic Garden. Internationally renowned eco-artists and UC Santa Cruz emeritus faculty, the Harrisons created a site-specific environmental art installation in the three geodesic domes and the surrounding garden at the Arboretum. Called Future Garden for the Central Coast of California, the installation, which Newton Harrison continues to evolve, transforms the newly refurbished domes at the Arboretum from relics of the past, steeped in 1970s era charm, into carriers of the future in response to the crisis of climate change. The Harrisons worked with scientists at UC Santa Cruz and botanists at the Arboretum, along with other artists, scientists, and visionaries, to create trial gardens within the domes in which native plant species are subjected to the temperatures and water conditions that scientists see for the region in the near future. The aim is to determine which plants are best able to thrive as the region warms and to propagate these species to create the scaffolding for more rapid regeneration of the local ecosystem as climates shift. As the Harrisons explained, the future for the rapidly warming planet lies in finding durable plant species that together create ecosystems that can continue to live and flourish as temperature increases. The geodesic domes of the Arboretum provide the perfect setting for imagining a future in the face of climate change. With their new gleaming white coverings, the ... Read More

“Archival Research as Penance”: The Papers and Library of Hayden V. White

McHenry Library, Special Collections & Archives Reading Room

Drawing on Hayden White’s newly available archive, this exhibit traces various sites of his intellectual work, teaching, and activism. Materials document his foundational role in building UC Santa Cruz’s pathbreaking History of Consciousness program, his powerful challenges to prevailing ideas of historical interpretation, and his part in a landmark legal ruling in favor of the civil rights of students in the United States which he regarded as one of his proudest accomplishments. In mapping the times and spaces where White elaborated his ideas, Archival Research as Penance invites others to think with him. Curated by Christian Alvarado and Patrick King, 2019-2020 Fellows in the Elisabeth Remak-Honnef Center for Archival Research and Training. Special Collections & Archives is grateful to Margaret Brose, whose generous donation of Hayden White’s archive to the University Library has made this exhibit possible. Thanks also go to The Humanities Institute for its support of fellowships in the Elisabeth Remak-Honnef Center for Archival Research and Training. On view through May 22, 2020. Open to the public during Special Collections & Archives Reading Room hours (generally Mon-Fri, 10:00am-Noon and 1:00pm-4:00pm).

Solitary Garden Public Sculpture and Garden Project

Baskin Art Studios

The Institute of the Arts is Sciences is proud to present the participatory public sculpture and garden project Solitary Garden, by jackie sumell, November 5, 2019- December 6, 2020, located at the Baskin Art Studios. Solitary Garden features a sculpture made following the blueprint of a standard U.S. solitary confinement cell. Around the 6’ x 9’ cell grows a garden of flowers and vegetables, designed by Tim Young, currently incarcerated in San Quentin, and communicated via letters and drawings to the students and volunteers who are planting and tending the garden as his proxies. The intent of the project, as the artist and Tim Young explain, is to "imagine a landscape without prisons." Solitary Garden is part of Barring Freedom, a multi-faceted, 18-month project which includes exhibitions of art, events and workshops, and a multi-day symposium at UC Santa Cruz, “Visualizing Prison Abolition,” October 15-17, 2020. Barring Freedom brings together artists, activists, and scholars to imagine alternatives to our fundamentally flawed criminal justice system and to galvanize a broader public to address the broken promise of freedom and justice for all in the United States.

Considering Matthew Shepard, a fully staged choral work

Crocker Theatre, Cabrillo College

The UCSC Arts Division co-sponsors a major choral production presented by the Cabrillo College Music and Theater Arts Departments based on Matthew Shepard’s life, the hate crime of his death, and the national outpouring of compassion which followed. This work is performed under the direction of Cheryl Anderson, Music Director, and Joseph Ribeiro, Stage Director, featuring the Ensemble Monterey Chamber Orchestra. This beautiful masterpiece by Craig Hella Johnson has been called the first important major musical work of the 21st century. It is an emotionally powerful and uplifting work and speaks with a fresh and bold voice. It ultimately calls each of us to live with kindness, compassion, and love. Experiencing this fully staged major choral work is a journey that transcends tragedy to lead us toward beauty and forgiveness. It will move and inspire you. Matthew Shepard was a young gay man who was beaten, tied to a fence, and left to die in the Wyoming countryside 22 years ago. His death catalyzed a generation of poets, musicians, and playwrights to change our attitudes about being different and to embrace "the other.” Tickets at the Cabrillo College box office. Thursday 3/5 7:30 p.m Friday 3/6 7:30 p.m. Saturday 3/7 7:30 p.m Sunday 3/8 2:30 p.m Thursday 3/12 7:30 p.m Friday 3/13 7:30 p.m Saturday 3/14 7:30 p.m Sunday 3/15 2:30 p.m.

It’s a hypnotic sound, with orchestral structures that often build tension and intrigue before turning the song on its head — not by simply getting louder or heavier, nor by just layering elements. They expertly subvert the implied heaviness of a part, dissecting ... Read More
