DESCRIPTION

Visionaries: Contemporary Art from Santa Barbara’s Private Collections
This exhibition will celebrate Santa Barbara’s world-class private contemporary art collections, specifically highlighting ones which include cutting-edge work including paintings, prints, drawings, photography, and sculpture by leading figures in the contemporary art world. Widely recognized as a center of arts and culture, leisure, and natural beauty, Santa Barbara also boasts a population of savvy art aficionados who travel, collect, and support contemporary art. This exhibition provides a rare glimpse into the private treasures in our midst.

This exhibition has been made possible in part by the generous support of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Special thanks to Wayne McCall and Associates, Santa Barbara, CA.

Bloom Projects: Adrian Esparza

El Paso-based Adrian Esparza garners much of his source material and artistic inspiration from his borderland experience. Through a series of deconstructed serapes, reassembled ceramic sculptures, and paintings on bed sheets, the artist explores his daily encounter with this political divide and perpetually challenges generally accepted boundaries and hierarchies.
