Students Celebrate Monarch Butterflies and Poetry Month with Museum Store Window Display

New Board Leadership at Habitat for Humanity



ABITAT FOR HUMANITY OF SOUTHERN SANTA BARBARA COUNTY (Habitat Santa Barbara) has announced the appointment of new board officers and the addition of new board leadership.

ELEBRATE NATIONAL POETRY MONTH, Earth Day, and local students’ talents by visiting the Santa Barbara Museum of Art this month! After learning about the monarch butterfly through creative and collaborative programming, the third through sixth graders of Mountain View Elementary, Montecito Union School, and Vieja Valley Elementary School will display their art and poetry in the Museum Store’s window through April 30th. “The poems accompanying the collages are not only expressions of the monarch butterfly’s beauty and fragility, but also the students’ discovery of their own creativity as a voice that can celebrate and protect the natural world,” explained SBMA’s display announcement. The window display is the result of unique programming offered through a number of local organizations. Last month, Cal Poets in the Schools taught students a nature-themed poetry lesson focusing on the monarch butterfly, encouraging the young poets to utilize descriptive language and haiku forms. The SBMA also distributed 220 art kits to students and presented a video lesson inspired by Diana Thater’s Untitled Videowall (Butterflies). Following this, students created tissue paper collage butterfly wings, which were placed alongside their poems. This month, the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden will further share a video about the importance of supporting monarch butterflies and restoring their population by planting the proper flowers. “The hope is that this spring, students and their families will be outside in their gardens, digging in the soil, and planting,” stated SBMA.

JANET BURKI assumes the position of Vice President of Habitat Santa Barbara’s Board of Directors with more than 35 years of experience in diverse technology businesses. A past GE executive and engineer, she is well-versed in leading businesses through critical changes and transforming organizations. Burki also holds great passion for mentoring, coaching, and developing professionals. In 2003, she was named one of Fast Company Magazine’s Fast CEOs.

United Boys & Girls Clubs Launches “Back on Track” Program


NITED BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF SANTA BARBARA COUNTY HAS LAUNCHED ITS “BACK ON TRACK” initiative to help students that are struggling to catch up after over a year of remote learning. “Back on Track” consists of three programs to help students better perform at their respective grade levels. “We want our kids to feel empowered in their journey through learning and our Clubs, along with staff, are here to be a guide, providing them with the tools they need, while also making it fun,” stated Laurie L. Leis, UBGC Vice President of UBGC member Advancement. One of the programs offered is Super Saturdays, which provides math and ELA tutoring, educational social sciences projects, organized games, and sports clinics. As motivation, students become eligible to win awards through participation, and can even qualify for a day at Camp Whittier in the Santa Ynez Mountains. The UBGC Back on Track initiative also encompasses Summer Spectacular Camp, a ten week long summer program, and Power Hour, which offers after school tutoring for kindergartners to high school seniors. Both of these programs further support students’ math and literacy skills, helping them to catch up in their academics. “We believe that every child deserves an equitable journey in education and learning, and we hope to raise enough money by the end of May to provide a free summer camp at all seven locations,” shared Leis. “Donate today, and together we can make that happen for the youth in Santa Barbara County.” For more information or to contribute to the UBGC of Santa Barbara County, visit www.unitedbg.org

Feeling anxious, fatigued, depressed, or just experiencing isolation challenges?

Hypnosis can help.

Reaching into the depths of our unconscious mind, we are able to find the resources needed to remain calm, feel inner peace, and even find joy in the midst of the chaos in our lives and the world. In-person or on-line sessions.

A Free Film Festival

ROBUST SELECTION OF FILMS FROM AROUND THE WORLD celebrating and promoting excellence in the art film disciplines of Animation, Dance, Documentary, Experimental, Narrative, and Original Score are ready for viewing at the International Fine Arts Film Festival website. Winners were selected by 12 judges from across the nation, based on criteria such as filmmaking to their ability to create interest, and bring arts from painters, sculptors, hand-drawn animators, professional dancers, musicians, and over the edge experimental artists who combine many artforms to life. The top winners’ include UpWell, Initiation, Walls of Limerick, Bisque, Still Untitled, Perfect Dancer, The Prepartor, Gloria’s Call, Tip Toland, Outlier, Winter, and Birch Grove. These films hail from the USA to Australia, Austria, Canada, Ireland, and Poland. Runner ups, including Semi-Finalists and Honorable Mentions, each phenomenal, are also listed and available for individual viewing on the Winners Page on the website. These also included five Director’s Choice awards picked from a remaining list of 75 films. Notable is UpWell, directed by J’aime Morrison, with Montecito roots, who won top prize in Experimental. It was judged on its story-line and filmmaking, which included women surfers in CA, as well as its display of soulfulness and sheer beauty. The two judges who chose it are not, nor have ever been surfers, nor do they live near oceans. Founding Director Lynn Holley considers their choices a testament to the power of a great film. A local surfing advocate and professional has donated money to the festival and awarded a cash prize to the filmmaker for supporting women filmmakers and women surfers. For an introduction to the Festival by Founder by Lynn Holley, visit the website’s home page. “The amount of films accepted this season is a hundred times more than ever,” Holley shared. “I was shut down in my apartment, and I kept extending the time of entry. As I enjoyed watching so many films, I just started selecting more for eventual screening. I figured it would be a great opportunity for filmmakers to be in a festival, and I believed it would be certainly easier than trying to manage so many people in a physical space.” www.IFAFF.org operates as a non-profit entity of its fiscal receiver Art Without Limits. Donations keep us screening, which is an essential and creative outlet for professional and student filmmakers.

There’s So Much Happening...

First Responders at Work!

Hot Rod Car Show!

Earth Day is Here!

The WATER RESCUE off Stearns Wharf and Shoreline Park last Thursday night was a drill and involved the Santa Barbara Harbor Patrol, Santa Barbara City fire, and the U.S. Coast Guard chopper. EARTH DAY goes virtual in Santa Barbara this week with speakers, music, education, electric vehicles, and youth programs. www.facebook.com/sbearthday

The first car show in months drew supporters out for the COMMUNITY HOT ROD project. Plans ahead are to help students with engineering and mechanic skills, and those in car care needs. Check out the custom made awards! https://tinyurl.com/2f8j27fc

Harbor Dredging Is On

Local Businesses Open...

SIDE STREET BUSINESSES hope to soon see the same foot traffic as the new State St. promenade is getting. Locally owned Santa Barbara stores still have loyal customers but could use more in person shoppers. This is the Salt Boutique.

DREDGING is underway to keep the Santa Barbara harbor from clogging with a sand build up. Silty water will be shooting out down the coast from a black temporary pipe towards East Beach and Montecito. https://tinyurl.com/jzedvyxa

INEMA IS IN THE BLOOD OF BARBAREÑOS, with two Santa Barbarabased film festivals beginning this week! First, the Green Film Festival will celebrate Earth Day with a series of environment-focused films. Then, viewers can tune into the International Fine Arts Film Festival to enjoy over 100 films from around the world for free. The Green Film Festival will be held alongside the Community Environmental Council’s Virtual Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival, which is being livestreamed free from April 22nd to 24th with recorded content available through May 22nd. With content from both local and international filmmakers, each selected film upholds principles of furthering environmental and social justice, protecting our climate, and community resilience. A special highlight will be the streaming of Gaviota:

The End of Southern California, which shows footage collected over five years of the special wildlife that calls this region home. The festival will also include Better Together, a film featuring over 20 local organizations making a difference for our community. “We all feel like we’re part of an ecosystem, that there’s an ecology of our relationships, so that what affects one person, affects us all in some way,” said David Pellow, UCSB Environmental Studies Program Chair, in response to the film. “We’re tied in an inescapable web of mutuality and interdependence.”

Meanwhile, the 5th season of the International Fine Arts Film Festival is featuring 103 films from 23 countries on its online platform. Created by Lynn Holley, the former curator of SBCAST and the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara, the festival’s films celebrate and promote excellence across art disciplines. This year’s festival winners were selected by twelve judges nationwide, and include UpWell, Initiation, Walls of Limerick, Bisque, Still Untitled, Perfect Dancer, The REH Fine Art at GRAYSPACE Prepartor, Gloria’sCall, Tip Toland, 219 Gray Avenue, in Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone Outlier, Winter, and Birch Grove. All of the 103 films, including the winners and runner-ups, are available for streaming through the end of May. Ruth Ellen Hoag “There are so many films that paintings can be seen have spurred my interest in exploring at Lotusland’s their ideas further, and it is not just the winners of which I am speaking,” Sanctuary Exhibition shared Holley. “There is an incredible April 22 through May 4th amount of wisdom on the arts throughout this festival, and on For Hours Visit: www.lotusland.org/sanctuary/ filmmaking. It is all there and free for the taking. My gift to the world Candelabra Aloe by Ruth Ellen Hoag during the pandemic.”

By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE

FTER A WARM AND SUNNY WEEKEND UNDER CLEAR SKIES and calm waters indicating the year’s Springtime awakening, I’m always astounded how we humans – and all living creatures - are interconnected with the environment. The smell of the salty sea air, the feel of the sand beneath our feet, the sound of waves adorned with flashes of sparkling light on the ocean’s surface remind us of our own connection on the shores of the mighty Pacific. This last year, and the previous ones, have certainly made us aware how vulnerable, yet powerfully impactful, the forces of Nature can be. By the time this goes to print we will have celebrated Earth Day 2021 with a theme that mirrors its global mission “to diversify, educate, and activate the environmental movement worldwide.” Much of our surroundings we either take for granted, lack awareness of its presence, or do not comprehend its importance in our lives. Is it possible to grasp the significance of our place in the natural order of things if we haven’t an awareness of the web of life within which we all exist? Curiously, it’s a film, one of this year’s Academy Award nominees for Best Documentary Film, that has certainly opened my eyes farther than just the end of my own nose! Titled strangely My Octopus Teacher, the film not only engulfs its central character in the rhythmic world of underwater interconnections, but completely captures the viewer right along with him. The empathetic presence of its narrator, producer, and filmmaker, conservationist Craig Foster, who, together with cinematographer Roger Horrocks, frames his own mid-life uncertainties through the medium of photography in the mysterious, often treacherous waters near his birthplace in South Africa. Foster’s own Beatrice – like Dante’s guide through mid-life in The Divine Comedy – is a cephalopod upon whom he projects his own story that touches the human heart. The lush kelp forests beneath the surface of the South African sea is the canvas upon which Foster’s adventure is painted. Life within the kelp forests is the reality which he – and we – find ourselves: the teeming variety of life forms going about their business in an otherworldly and unseen realm full of vibrant colors. Filtered beams of surface light create a sense of the mysterious while being at the same time serenely calming. As Foster said of himself near the end of the film, “I felt that I also was no longer just a visitor beneath the tumultuous sea, but fully a part of this strangely compelling and fluid world.” Foster’s narrative lays bare the human need for solitude, as well as its reciprocal, a deeply felt longing for connection. Foster dives, with only flippers and oxygen between himself and his environment, around the kelp forests as he observes and comments on the myriad of life forms and their relationship to one another in the deep. This underwater world flows with a vibrant palate of colors, a shift in reality for land creatures such as ourselves. Eventually Foster discovers his muse and guide, the octopus teacher upon which the story is based. Naturally shy, the octopus is an animal whose lifetime extends to approximately one year. For that period of time, Foster follows her with his heart and camera in hand, accepting what he is incapable of understanding, and respecting her intelligence, instincts, and abilities to survive all odds. At least until – after birthing her offspring – Nature programs her demise. Foster, who has experienced a physical and spiritual connection, respectfully leaves her to her fate, but the lessons learned and the closeness remain with him. Foster’s ‘love story’ is a metaphor for connection, not only between human and cephalopod but between ourselves and all life on the space ship we call Earth. This beautifully shot documentary allowed me to view humanity as a small part in a huge web of interdependent life: in fact a tiny speck in the unanswerable mystery of the Universe that surrounds us. I highly recommend this film, available on Netflix (and hopefully the recipient of an Academy Award!), especially after the advent of the global celebration of Earth Day. Hope you celebrated too!

Economic VOICE Equitable Wealth = Equitable Growth By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE


E MUST CURE THE RECORD INCOME INEQUALITY if we are to re-unite the United States into a country that serves Americans in both red and blue states. The current disunity is a result of whole swaths of the country losing out on economic opportunity. Our modern, tech-based capitalism has raced ahead, rewarding those that can keep up. The wealth is distributed in a highly unequal fashion, notes the Center for Equitable Growth, a progressive think tank, with the wealthiest one percent of families in the United States holding about 40 percent of all wealth and the bottom 90 percent of families holding less than one-quarter of all wealth. The result has been that the top 20 percent of America’s educated class are winning the race with educational opportunities that have enabled them to take advantage of modern technologies. And what happens to people who feel left behind—in education, good jobs, and adequate housing? They find a way to protest. There are protests against immigrants because many believe their jobs have been stolen. There are protests against open borders because they see those jobs fleeing to other countries with cheaper wages. Many are so angry they tend to believe any theory confirming their suspicions that the educated elitists with the best jobs are abridging their freedoms. That is why President Biden’s plan to return the U.S. to full employment by the end of 2022 is so important. The just passed $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan will boost benefits of lower and middle income consumers, raising incomes for the poorest 20 percent of families by an average of 20 percent, according to the Tax Policy Center’s analysis, and create seven million jobs by the end of 2021, while top earners would see their income rise less than one percent, according to the CBO. The proposed $2 trillion plus infrastructure bill will create more good jobs by requiring the development of universal broadband, such as 5G networks that China is already building on a grand scale, a major issue in rural communities. Documents suggest it will also include nearly $1 trillion in spending on the construction of roads, bridges, rail lines, ports, electric vehicle charging stations, and improvements to the electric grid and other parts of the power sector, all requiring higher paying jobs.

“I think a package that consists of investments in people, investments in infrastructure, will help to create good jobs in the American economy,” testified Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen in congressional hearings recently, “and changes in the tax structure will help to pay for those programs (and also reduce income inequality).” The investments in people is even more important to lift the spirits of the 13 million that still have no jobs or would like full time jobs, including greater access to Obamacare and Medicaid, aid that the previous administration had been drastically reducing. Bringing back trust in government will do the most to boost public spirits. And that means spending on programs that make life easier for most Americans. There is no easy path to a greater equality of opportunity in the richest country in the world, because we must first restore our faith in the ability to help each other with programs that benefit all Americans.

San Marcos High Mock Trial Team Recognized by District


HE SAN MARCOS HIGH SCHOOL MOCK TRIAL TEAM was recognized by Santa Barbara Unified School District Superintendent Hilda Maldonado during its April 6th School Board Meeting for winning fourth place in the California State Mock Trial Championship last month. “I’m so impressed by this team and the time and effort they put in to not just reach a common goal, but to succeed at a very high level,” said Superintendent Maldonado. “The Mock Trial program prepares students on so many important levels, including developing critical thinking and persuasive speaking. Congratulations to the entire team for representing our district so well at the State level!” The SMHS team qualified for the state competition after winning the Santa Barbara County Mock Trial Championship in February. Between March 18th to 21st, 32 teams from across California competed via Zoom, with students acting through courtroom procedures and presentations as if they were actually attorneys,

witnesses, and bailiffs. In addition to the team’s fourth place win, SMHS senior Jack Strand was honored as “Best Police Officer in the State” for his performance in the role of the prosecution detective. “In 15 years of coaching Mock Trial at San Marcos, this team stands apart as being steadfast in their mission, resilient, and tenacious,” said coach Luke Ohrn. “They made the best of a difficult situation and showed real strength of character as they worked hard during every Zoom practice, scrimmage, and at the county and state competitions. I am very proud to have worked with these terrific students and our adult coaches.” In addition to Ohrn, the SMHS team is coached by local attorneys Hilary Dozer and Jim Kreyger. The senior student captains are Ayla Sutter, Owen Williams, Peri Wilby, and Makena Shlens.

The Library will provide laminated signs for each Scavenger Hunt location. Participants will be promoted in the weekly Library Newsletter, which has over 40,000 subscribers, as well as on social media. To express interest in participation, businesses and organizations can email YouthServices@SantaBarbaraCA.gov

At the Center of Santa Barbara’s Cultural Conversation | www.VoiceSB.com

April 23, 2021

HEN FRIENDS VISITING LOS ANGELES ask me “what are the mustsee places in LA?” of course I tell them about downtown’s world-class cultural venues. Besides The Music Center, The Disney Hall, MOCA, and The Broad Museum, there is a gem that is often overlooked - Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. It was designed in 1998 by Pritzker Prize winning Spanish architect Rafael Moneo. Like many art aficionados, I visit the cathedral on a regular basis to take in it’s beautiful architecture and reconnect with the many contemporary artworks by LA artists. Among them is John Nava, who was commissioned to create a series of large tapestries, including The Communion of Saints, Baptism of the Lord, and Holy City. Now, 20 years later, Nava was commissioned to do yet another monumental tapestry, honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary. As with many of his original set of John Nava poses with Mary tapestry in September 2020 tapestries, Nava used a neighbor and friend as the model for the image of Mary, in this case a young DACA recipient. I learned about the Cathedral’s latest tapestry from the January issue of Angelus magazine. Lucky for me, I have known Nava and his work for many years, so I got in touch with him, and he invited me to his studio in Ojai. Being impressed and inspired by his tapestries in the Cathedral is one thing, but having a close encounter with his art in the studio is an experience that leaves you slightly intoxicated. I like to look at Nava’s paintings so closely that my nose practically touches the canvas, taking in every brushstroke. But, with his monumental tapestries, I cannot resist the temptation to touch their woven surface with my hands. Guilty me... Among the good news of the last few weeks was the announcement that The Getty Villa reopened its galleries and gardens to the public. For me, The Getty Villa is a cultural temple where we can communicate with ancient Gods and Muses. I visited the Villa last weekend to say hello to some of my favorite objects in the permanent collection. Take a look at this nearly 5000-year-old Cycladic sculpture, The Harp Player. If you didn’t know its ancient origins, wouldn’t you think this work came straight out of Picasso’s studio? And here are two more of my favorite pieces from the Villa permanent collection, both about 2,000 years old; beautifully preserved bronze sculpture of Infant Bacchus and the Fayum Mary, by John Nava, 2021 Mummy Portrait of a Bearded Man, whose thoughts and character still speak to us many centuries later. Not to be missed is the current exhibition Mesopotamia: Civilization Begins, which covers three millennia of artworks and artifacts from some of the earliest cities in 3200 B.C.E. to Alexander the Great’s conquest of Babylon in 331 B.C.E. I’ve been familiar with the art of well-known LA based photographer Mona Kuhn for quite some time, but her current solo exhibition at Galerie XII at Bergamot Station gave me a whole new perspective of her work. This exhibition, titled Works, is a retrospective spanning two decades of Kuhn’s work with an emphasis on the nude, predominantly female body. As always, to meet with the artist and to hear the stories behind her work deepened my understanding and appreciation of Kuhn’s photography. The multiplicity of the nude bodies in the photos speaks beyond sensuality and transcends into the spiritual John Nava in his studio, Ojai, CA realm. Alongside the opening of the show, Thames & Hudson released Kuhn’s first monograph entitled Works. The exhibition runs through May 29th. A few weeks ago I talked about the solo exhibition, Better Days, at Luis De Jesus Gallery by Dallas based artist Evita Tezeno. Her collage paintings on canvas and rag board introduce you to a variety of characters in everyday life. And what interesting characters they are... Sunday was the last day of the exhibition, and Tezeno flew to Los Angeles to hold a private reception for its closing. I asked her if the characters in her paintings are based on real people. Does she photograph them first? To my surprise, her answer was no. She paints from memory, inspired by family, friends, and neighbors. For me, it was another example of how a conversation with an artist deepens the experience of their Harp Player, Early Cycladic 2700-2300 B.C.E. work. Photo courtesy of Galerie XII

Local Artists to Unveil New Earth Day Mural By Daisy Scott / VOICE


N EYE-POPPING NEW MURAL CELEBRATING OUR COMMUNITY AND PLANET will soon adorn an exterior wall of the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara. While the painting just began on April 19th, local artists Adriana Arriaga and Claudia Borfiga will reveal the final work to the public during the Community Environmental Council’s Virtual Earth Day Festival this weekend. “We really wanted to emphasize the importance of community building and how we need each other to protect the earth,” shared Arriaga. “We really need each other to balance the work that we have to do to protect our earth, and most importantly to make sure that we protect it for the next generation, and teaching them those skills and the knowledge to protect the environment.” Titled Nurture Our Mother, Arriaga and Borfiga’s mural concept was chosen from over 25 submissions for the 2021 Earth Day Mural. Sponsored by CEC, MCASB, Paseo Nuevo, and other community partners, the call for entries asked Mural artists Claudia Borfiga and Adriana Arriaga in front of the then county artists to respond blank mural wall. to the 2021 Earth Day Festival theme of “climate leadership.” Arriaga and Borfiga, who met through a local organization called Friends of Public Art, decided to combine their unique skills and subject matters to realize a mural that would highlight our planet’s beauty and inspire viewers to protect it. Arriaga, who also goes by “adriana la artista,” is a born and raised Santa Barbara local. A contemporary Xicana graphic designer, Arriaga utilizes her experiences as a Xicana person and cultural references to connect with people through her art. With her work having been shown in exhibitions across the state, she has recently returned to her hometown after earning her bachelor’s degree in Art/Design studies with a minor in Chicano studies at San Jose State University, and her MFA from UC Davis. Borfiga, who moved to Santa Barbara from London four years ago, creates fine art screen prints. Her work predominantly centers on nature, excluding human elements like buildings and individuals. She also teaches local art workshops, and launched a group named Print Power to help people who have experienced trauma express themselves through printmaking. To date, the group has worked with local organizations Standing Together to End Sexual Assault (STESA) and Domestic Violence Solutions. While the mural’s exact details will remain unknown until the artists and community volunteers finish painting it, Arriaga and Borfiga have expressed that it will celebrate Earth and its ecosystem as a collection of all its elements. Utilizing bright, bold colors, the mural will feature different creatures, plants, and human symbolism and imagery in order to emphasize the interconnectedness of our world and inspire viewers to take action and preserve it for generations to come. “[We’re] trying to pick things that are symbolic in ways that are native to us but translate as a message for looking out for the environment and looking out for the ecosystem,” explained Borfiga. “So really wanting to tell a story about how we have to care for all of these things and we have to consider all of these things. We’re lucky enough to live on it, so we have a duty to look after these things that are a part of Earth as well.” The mural, located on the MCASB exterior wall on the Paseo Nuevo Arts Terrace Parking Deck, will be revealed on April 24th during the CEC’s Virtual Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival, which can be accessed at https://sbearthday.org.

Nina de Creeft Ward

Extinct from the Earth: Captured in Art


By Daisy Scott / VOICE

ROWING UP SURROUNDED BY ART AND ANIMALS in Santa Barbara, Nina de Creeft Ward is the daughter of sculptors Jose and Alice de Creeft. She holds fond memories of caring for her family’s farm animals, pets, and learning about wildlife on school field trips to the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. Today, she continues to use her sculpture, drawing, and printmaking to cultivate appreciation for all animals, especially those that are extinct and endangered by human actions. “If you really appreciate something, you want other people to appreciate it too,” shared Ward. “And I really do appreciate animal life, and I hate to see people destroying nature and taking over natural space.” Ward attended Scripps College and earned her MFA from Claremont Graduate School of the Associated Colleges. Later, she moved to Chicago, where she enjoyed drawing animals at the local zoos. She started to think about the concept of extinction during one of these visits, coming across a display featuring a mirror coupled with the message, “You’re looking at the most dangerous animal alive.” “That was sort of a wake-up call,” she commented. She and her husband lived in Iowa for over 20 years before returning to Santa Barbara in 2001. Throughout her career, Ward has continued celebrating her passion for animals, portraying any and all creatures that spark artistic inspiration. This is especially true of hoofed animals, which Nina deCreeft Ward she can compare to the goats and horses of her childhood. This open approach, combined with the works she completes per the requests of family and friends, has resulted in a portfolio that encompasses the animal kingdom from beloved pets and farmyard companions to endangered and extinct members. “They say the kind of work you do shows what’s nearest to your heart, and I think animals are awfully important to me,” she said. Ward has held multiple shows focused on her work depicting endangered and extinct animals. The series consist of sculptures of fallen bodies of kudus, sable antelopes, rhinos, and Etching of Fakudu from zoo drawings by Nina deCreeft Ward blaauwboks, an antelope species that became extinct in the 19th century. Another work, titled E for Extinct, shows an old wooden desk, its open drawers overflowing with horns and hooves. As with all her sculptures, Ward strives to capture each animal’s unique attitude and gestures to make them feel alive to viewers. She largely utilizes soft slabs of clay, shaping them with piles of t-shirts before practicing raku firing or a smoking process to acquire the desired finish. She further uses block prints and ceramic slabs with rope impressions to create distinctive and deeply

meaningful textures. “I have the feeling that humans have affected a lot of animals and sort of encircled them and trapped them, so the rope seems to me to be somewhat appropriate,” explained Ward. Recently, Ward also honored animals native to the Santa Ynez Mountains with her 2020 Animal Ties exhibition at the South Willard Gallery in Los Angeles. Along with showcasing some older works, the exhibition featured her new series of delicately sculpted deer and coyotes resting against forested backdrops. Though smaller than previous sculptures, the pieces are a powerful reminder of the natural beauty surrounding Santa Barbara. Looking forward, Ward hopes that viewers enjoy her work and subsequently respect Buck and Doe by Nina deCreeft Ward animals more. She shared that while it’s not always overt, her work is largely channelled in the direction of Earth Day’s message. “It’s about appreciating the natural world and preserving it for our children and grandchildren and greatgrandchildren, and not fracking and not doing things that spoil the water,” she By Nina deCreeft Ward said about Earth Day’s significance. “In general, having the least impact on the natural world. That’s what we’re all hoping we’ll do, keeping the wild animals alive.” To learn more about Nina de Creeft Ward and view her work, visit www.ninadecreeftward.com

A Discussion with Organizers “Abolitionist struggle seeks to release the hold that the racial and racist carceral state has on our lives, both inside and outside the prison walls.” — Steve Wilson Most universities in other countries do not have their own police forces. Yet, in the US, university police forces are the norm. Why is this the case, and how are students and staff organizing against it? Abolitionist formations have expanded and deepened at universities and schools across the US in the past decade in response to police killings. As student workers and staff have organized against anti-Black racism and police violence, they have also articulated the relationship between policing and the neoliberalization of higher education, and the university’s role in tuition hikes, rising student debt, militarization, gentrification, and settler occupation. What does the project of police and prison abolition have to do with the project of the university and public institutions of higher education? How has the UC system been historically complicit in the expansion of mass incarceration, anti-Black policing, and the suppression of student protest? This panel features student and faculty organizers from the California Cops off Campus coalition. Join us as we discuss how university campaigns connected to broader struggles for abolition, and to learn more about the Cops Off Campus Coalition and how to get involved.

To uphold our weekly film screenings and discussions, we will be transforming our cup of culture series into a virtual setting. Every Wednesday, we will watch a documentary or movie as a collective.

In a country where indigenous people are increasingly displaced, their land stolen, where students disappear without a trace following police arrests, and journalists are murdered at an alarming rate, a courageous new voice emerges: Lupita, a Tsostil Maya massacre survivor, at the forefront of a new movement of indigenous women. This film follows Lupita taking on risks and responsibilities to represent her people, weaving her personal narrative into the painful revolutionary history of Mexico. Part lyrical testimony, part tribute to 500 years of indigenous resistance, this film mediates the point-ofview of a brave woman who must balance the demands of motherhood with her high stakes choices to reeducate and restore justice to the world. 2018
