The Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCASB) and the Art, Design & Architecture Museum (AD&A Museum) at UC Santa Barbara are excited to announce a weekend program featuring artists Sarah Rosalena and Sandy Rodriguez. All events are free and open to the public.
The joint weekend program is being held in association with the concurrent exhibitions Sarah Rosalena: Pointing Star (April 16 – July 30, 2023) at MCASB and Sandy Rodriguez — Unfolding Histories: 200 Years of Resistance (Feb. 25, 2023 – March 3, 2024) at the AD&A Museum.
On Friday, July 28, 5–7pm, Rosalena and Rodriguez will be in conversation at MCASB, offering a rare opportunity to hear the artists speak candidly to each other about their work. The talk is co-hosted by Lum Art Magazine.
The following day, Saturday, July 29, 12–2pm, join us at the AD&A Museum at UC Santa Barbara for an artist-led tour of the exhibition Sandy Rodriguez — Unfolding Histories: 200 Years of Resistance, followed by a reception with light refreshments.
In their intersecting art practices, Rosalena and Rodriguez’s research-based work recovers knowledge from the past and present, mapping with materials and techniques of the Americas with weaving and painting to depict histories of resistance between land and sky.
