Please join us for the opening of We Remember Them: Acts of Love and Compassion in Isla Vista, an online exhibition honoring the acts of love and compassion that emerged in Isla Vista and on the University of California, Santa Barbara campus after the May 23, 2014 tragedy. Lauren Trujillo, a UCSB alumna and current UCLA MLIS graduate student, will speak about the Isla Vista Memorial Project and her work curating the online exhibition. Lauren was a student at the time of the tragedy and close friend to two of the victims.
The online exhibition will recreate the large-scale We Remember Them exhibition that opened in May 2015 for the one year remembrance. Community members new and old will have a chance to navigate through this digital space for healing and reflection.
This exhibition and event was made possible through Lauren’s “UCLA/Community Archives Internship Project,” funded by the Andrew Mellon Foundation. The reception is co-sponsored by UCSB Library and Office of Student Life.
