Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara’s eagerly-awaited annual spring benefit DISRUPTION will take place Tuesday April 18th, at the historic Arlington Theater.

The evening will include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a special DJ set, and a unique opportunity to purchase artwork by Cruz Ortiz to benefit MCASB.
DISRUPTION will be immediately followed by a special performance by musical guest Phantogram.
More about Cruz Ortiz:
Cruz Ortiz, born in Houston in 1972, lives and works in San Antonio. He uses print, performance and film to address issues related to growing up in the bicultural landscape of South Texas. Grounded in the history of art; contemporary art practices; and social, political and cultural movements, Ortiz’s unique language fuses classical icons with symbols of contemporary pop culture such as taco trucks, canned beans and his alter ego SPAZTEK. He engages the public with interactive works such as wheat paste murals, communal art events, guerrilla AM radio broadcasts and ephemeral street sculptures. Ortiz has recently been commissioned by MCASB as part of the city wide takepart | makeart: arte para todos public art program.
