The 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill is frequently cited as a catalyst for the birth of the modern environmental movement. This exhibition, which is curated by librarians Kristen LaBonte and Annie Platoff, will examine the connections between this historic disaster and environmental activism in the local area.
Ocean Gallery, UCSB Library, UC Santa Barbara
This new work by Rose Briccetti was created as a companion to the UCSB Library exhibition Anguish, Anger, and Activism: Legacies of the 1969 Santa Barbara Oil Spill.
Oil Slick collects and collages images of--often petroleum based--consumer goods with the popular iridescent finish known as "oil slick." Though visually beautiful, the oil slick finish refers to pollution and environmental disaster. The images together create a work that explores themes of consumerism, our continued addiction to oil, and beauty in tragedy.

¡Chicanismo!: The Sanchez Collection
Conversation with the Artist and Exhibition Walkthrough
Saturday, April 27, 4:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UC Santa Barbara
While still a graduate student at UC Santa Barbara, Prof. Tomas Sanchez (MA 1975 History) began collecting works of art that represented the history, culture, and contemporary experiences of Chicanos in California. Though he started with posters, Sanchez began to acquire prints in the early 1980s by the young artists he met and befriended during gallery outings in southern California. ¡Chicanismo! represents only a small portion of the impressive collection Sanchez has assembled throughout a lifetime of study and acquisitions.
This exhibition is mounted in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Chicana/o Studies Department. Prof. Sanchez was an early student in the department and credits his experiences at UC Santa Barbara as instrumental to his success as a professor of history having taught full time at Moorpark, Oxnard, and Ventura Colleges. The AD&A Museum thanks Prof. Sanchez for sharing his collection and stories.
