FIRST THURSDAY CELEBRATION of THE EXHIBITION RUINOPHILIA at UCSB

When: Thursday, November 1, 2012, 5-8pm

Location: AD&A Museum @ Jane Deering Gallery
128 East Canon Perdido Street

Join us for First Thursday, October 4th for “Ruinophilia” which explores artistsÂ’ continued fascination with ruins from the 16th century to the present. Through prints, photographs, sculpture and multimedia works, Ruinophilia ranges from depictions of crumbling buildings to bodies that display the infirmity of age. These works express a longing for the past, or an obsession with the passage of time.

Curated by student interns, Mariel Lacson ‘14 and Jamie Stoneman ‘13.

The AD&A Museum @ Jane Deering Gallery:
Thanks to the generosity of Jane Deering Gallery, the Museum has been given
a much-needed downtown space for exhibitions. The Gallery, which has been
mounting contemporary art exhibitions in Santa Barbara since 2006, will
schedule five exhibitions per year, from January to May. During the
remaining seven months of the year, Deering has made the space available to
the Museum for exhibitions and events.
