Upcoming Exhibitions

Girls in Justice Girls-in-Justice

UCSB Library (Tower Gallery, First Floor)

On exhibit January 12 - April 2015

For the last eight years photographer and UCSB Art Professor Richard Ross has gone behind the barbed wire of American juvenile detention facilities to visually document "the inside" and gather first-person stories of incarcerated youth. For his Girls-in-Justice photography exhibition, Ross focuses on the often forgotten and misunderstood lives of girls in the juvenile justice system.

Ross will give an exhibition talk titled "Juvenile-in-Justice" on February 3, 2015 in the Library's Mary Cheadle Room (Third Floor).


Tomol CrossingIndigenous Peoples of the Americas: Roots, Resistance and Resurgence

UCSB Library Special Collections (Third Floor)
On exhibit February 10 - June 2015

Indigenous peoples of the Americas, despite struggles, have maintained and strengthened their identity. This interdisciplinary exhibition explores their cultural and political heritage, and examines the spiritual wisdom that is rooted in the practices of ancient Indigenous civilizations. The tomol, the traditional Chumash canoe, serves as a symbol of resurgence and in this exhibition as a visual metaphor for Indigenous struggles for self-determination.
