Opening reception:
June 27th, 5:30-7:30pm

The Art, Design & Architecture Museum, in association with the Department of Art and the College of Creative Studies at UC Santa Barbara, is proud to present a large-scale exhibition that celebrates the legacy and continued vibrancy of the Visual Arts at UCSB. Starting Here, will show the work of 48 artists who attended UCSB from 1950–2010. Through the artists’ works and experiences the exhibition will chart changes in art and the teaching of art on the UCSB campus, all the while highlighting the value of peer-to-peer and interdisciplinary learning. The exhibition will include book arts, ceramics, drawing, painting, performance, photography, printmaking, sculpture and video.
The exhibition will open in two phases and be installed throughout the Museum and in the College of Creative Studies Gallery. The first phase will include the work of 16 artists, representing a modest overview of the range of accomplished artists who have attended UCSB. This initial group will be augmented by an additional 32 artists in the second phase in June.

This exhibition has been curated by Elyse Gonzales, Curator of Exhibitions, AD&A Museum; Jane Mulfinger, Professor and Chair, Department of Art; and Kim Yasuda, Professor, Department of Art.
