CLOSED: When We Paint Our Masterpiece: The Art of the Grateful Dead Community

McHenry Library, Brittingham Dead Central Gallery, Main Level

This newest exhibit featuring unique materials from the Grateful Dead Archive explores how the members of the band and the global Dead Head community took inspiration from one another in creating an image-rich, worldwide art practice that, like the band’s music, scrambled perceived standards and norms. The creative works presented in When We Paint Our Masterpiece reveal a world full of variety when it comes to design practices, international traditions, visual icons, and art forms. There has been space for all of these patterns and visions in the community of fans and fellow artists that blossomed around the band, and that community of creators continues to thrive today. This exhibit explores the mutual appreciation among fans as well as between fans and the band. On view through 2020. This free exhibit is open to the public during McHenry Library hours.

Social Documentation (SocDoc) M.F.A. Thesis Screening

The annual Social Documentation (SocDoc) Graduate Exhibition presents premieres of new master's thesis documentaries by nine graduate students in the Social Documentation M.F.A. program at UC Santa Cruz. These nine documentaries are the culmination of an intense two years of immersion by our students into the art of documentary media and craft, scholarly research and analysis, nonfiction storytelling, and the politics of representation. These new media makers are trained to go ‘Beyond The Story,’ documenting communities, cultures, issues, and individuals who are marginalized in the current landscapes of representation, and the films shown here are the finished results of these studies. This year, the screening will be available online for one month of unlimited worldwide access. More information (web link will be published here).

Solitary Garden Virtual Tour

Baskin Art Studios

Solitary Garden is the participatory public sculpture and garden project by award-winning artist jackie sumell. Solitary Garden creatively advocates for the end of solitary confinement and mass incarceration in the United States and asks viewers and participants "to imagine a landscape without prisons." 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." The garden continues to grow at UC Santa Cruz, despite current shelter-in-place requirements. Please use the resources below to experience the project and to learn more about the issues it engages. And write Tim: Timothy Young, #F23374, San Quentin State Prison, San Quentin, CA 94974. Experience Solitary Garden online through a short video created by IAS undergraduate interns. (An extended version is HERE.) FURTHER RESOURCES Tim has written letters to the Solitary Garden team at UC Santa Cruz since August 2019. From his first thoughts on undertaking a garden and his ideas on the significance of the plants he's chosen, to recent writings on how COVID-19 has changed the project for him, the powerful letters are online: Tim Young's letters and other writings Solitary Garden is in UC Santa Cruz Magazine: "A Growing Movement" by ...

CLOSED: 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
