Join us for the arrival of Pacific Standard Time LA/LA at AD&A Museum! Several years in the planning stages, we will be celebrating the opening of the exhibitions The Schoolhouse and the Bus: Mobility, Pedagogy, and Engagement. Two Projects by Pablo Helguera and Suzanne Lacy / Pilar Riaño-Alcalá and Sacred Art in the Age of Contact: Chumash and Latin American Traditions in Santa Barbara.
Note: Sacred Art in the Age of Contact on view beginning September 16 - noon to 5pm.
Pacific Standard Time: 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. Sacred Art in the Age of Contact and The Schoolhouse and the Bus are official participants of the Getty initiative. 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.
