Isla Vista: Building a Community

It's your last chance to view the exhibition Isla Vista: Building a Community, 1970-2016 in Special Research Collections. The exhibition explores the political, cultural, and social struggles of Isla Vista to become an independent, cohesive community. Since the protests of the 1970s, grassroots activism has improved conditions in the area, but Isla Vista, populated mainly by UCSB students, still faces difficulties and, up until recently, cityhood remained elusive. The exhibition will close on Friday, March 24. Special Research Collections is open Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 9am-5pm and on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9am-8pm; it is closed on the weekends.
