Come Together: Interethnic Collaborations for Equity and Social Change in the 1970s

Exhibit: February 8 - March 4, 2011
Opening Reception: Tuesday, February 8, 5:30 pm, College of Creative Studies Gallery
Panel: Tuesday, February 8, 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm, MCC Lounge

This exhibition features selected 1970s vintage posters by San Francisco Bay Area activist artists who represent a spirit of cultural diversity, social equity/social change, and international human rights from various perspectives. Revealed in the imagery are significant interethnic collaborations in which shared interests of African American, Asian American, Chicano/Latino, and Native American communities are united within individual posters. The posters are drawn from major graphic art collections housed in the California Ethnic and Multicultural Archives (CEMA) in the UCSB Library.

There will be a panel discussion with artists Juan Fuentes and Nancy Hom who will each present their past and current work with communities of color. It will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
