AD&A News  

This summer the AD&A Museum is pleased to host SUMMER LAUNCH PAD: New Plays in Process. This program invites three
professional playwrights to join the UCSB community as artists in residence in a summer course. The collaboration between LAUNCH PAD Artistic Director Risa Brainin, a team of undergraduate students and the playwrights culminates in public readings.  Days and times can be found on Programs & Events page.                                     


May 20, 2016  Art Together! 

In partnership with the Early Acadamic Outreach Program, we hosted over 80 high school seniors, admitted transfer students, parents and teachers not only to come view the juried artwork on display, but also to hear from recently graduated and current undergrads about their time here at UCSB as humanities and arts majors.  The day's events culminated with seeing the MFA Grad student exhibition on view in the AD&A Museum.  In one day, high school students met undergrads who then all went to meet MFA students.  A great day for all!
