We Remember Them: Acts of Love and Compassion in Isla Vista

Wed, 05/22/2019 - 2:00pm to Fri, 05/31/2019 - 5:00pm

A space for healing and reflection, this exhibition honors the acts of love and compassion that emerged in Isla Vista and on the UC Santa Barbara campus after the tragedy of May 23, 2014. Through photographs of planned and unplanned memorials, artifacts and messages left at spontaneous memorial sites, and documentation of support from around the globe, the exhibition remembered those who died and were injured, and told the story of a community empowered by its own humanity in reacting to a collective loss. 

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 online exhibition was made possible through the “UCLA/Community Archives Internship Project,” funded by the Andrew Mellon Foundation. The reception was co-sponsored by UCSB Library and Office of Student Life.
