Although Sacred Art in the Age of Contact: Chumash and Latin American Traditions in Santa Barbara is on view beginning September 16, join us on Wednesday, September 27 for the official opening at the Art, Design & Architecture Museum.

The AD&A Museum will also celebrate the opening of the exhibition The Schoolhouse and the Bus: Mobility, Pedagogy, and Engagement. Two Projects by Pablo Helguera and Suzanne Lacy / Pilar Riaño-Alcalá. Both exhibitions are official participants in the Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative. PST: LA/LA brings a unique opportunity specifically to Santa Barbara, encouraging cross-cultural dialogue and critical investigation of Latin American art in a local context.  This initiative is a collaboration of numerous arts institutions in California, and explores the historical relationship between Latin America and the greater Los Angeles area through a series of thematically linked exhibitions.
