“Weary Blues: Poetry and Jazz from Langston Hughes” Exhibition  
  UCSB Arts Library, UCSB Campus, Santa Barbara CA
This exhibition, on display in the UCSB Arts Library Lobby through Aug. 31, was inspired by a recent multimedia presentation of “The Langston Hughes Project / Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz” at UCSB’s Multicultural Center, under the direction of Dr. Ron McCurdy. The performance brought Hughes’ epic poem “Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz” to life as the poet originally intended: with jazz musical accompaniment. A CD recording of the performance is available in the Music Library. The exhibition contains UCSB Library materials from the Music, Art, Black Studies, and Special Research Collections, as well as posters and fliers for The Langston Hughes Project from McCurdy’s personal collection. These materials showcase and honor Hughes’ lasting contributions to American culture. Kyra Folk-Farber, Assistant Music Librarian and Evolving Workforce Resident at UCSB Library, curated the exhibition. The exhibition can be viewed during Arts Library hours.

DEEP

  Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, 2559 Puesta del Sol Road, Santa Barbara CA

For centuries, the presence of large creatures below the surface of the sea fueled the imagination of seafarers and populated early maps. It wasn’t until the late 19th century that the HMS Challenger expedition travelling with a crew of scientists systematically studied the oceans, collected specimens from various depths, and laid the foundations for modern oceanography. DEEP tells the story of this pioneering voyage as well as highlights Museum specimens and current research.

The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

Organized by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, this exhibition is the first to explore how the practice of painting served as the means for the artist to imagine generative relationships between art and technology. László Moholy-Nagy (1895–1946) is now recognized as one of the most influential members of the Bauhaus. While his legacy for later 20th-century art is typically linked to the photogram (a type of cameraless photography), the driving force behind this presentation is the relatively under-recognized role of the more traditional medium of painting throughout Moholy’s career, which is explored in a selection of 33 works of art ranging in date from the 1920s to 1940s, including paintings, works on paper, photograms, video projections, and a facsimile replica of Moholy’s prescient Light Prop―one of the first kinetic sculptures of its kind. The installation also includes a Kodachrome slide set (the latest in color photography innovation at the time), which comprises 12 luminous images.

The Visionary Photomontages of Herbert Bayer, 1929-1936  
  June 21 – September 27, 2015  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

On display in the Ridley-Tree Gallery Works on Paper section—and in tandem with the international loan exhibition The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come—is a selection of photographs by Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer (1900–1985). Influenced by the photographic works of László Moholy-Nagy and the modernist Bauhaus credo―there is no one true art form but rather an intersection of all art in pursuit of an idea, Bayer’s work as a photographer reflects his mastery of graphic design. Made in Berlin as Weimar culture faded and Hitler rose to power, the exhibited photomontages grapple with the tumultuous modern world as the artist experienced it between the years 1929 and 1936.

The Visionary Photomontages of Herbert Bayer, 1929-1936  
  June 21 – September 27, 2015  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

On display in the Ridley-Tree Gallery Works on Paper section—and in tandem with the international loan exhibition The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come—is a selection of photographs by Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer (1900–1985). Influenced by the photographic works of László Moholy-Nagy and the modernist Bauhaus credo―there is no one true art form but rather an intersection of all art in pursuit of an idea, Bayer’s work as a photographer reflects his mastery of graphic design. Made in Berlin as Weimar culture faded and Hitler rose to power, the exhibited photomontages grapple with the tumultuous modern world as the artist experienced it between the years 1929 and 1936.

  UCSB Arts Library, UCSB Campus, Santa Barbara CA

A CD recording of the performance is available in the Music Library. The exhibition contains UCSB Library materials from the Music, Art, Black Studies, and Special Research Collections, as well as posters and fliers for The Langston Hughes Project from McCurdy’s personal collection. These materials showcase and honor Hughes’ lasting contributions to American culture. Kyra Folk-Farber, Assistant Music Librarian and Evolving Workforce Resident at UCSB Library, curated the exhibition. The exhibition can be viewed during Arts Library hours.

The Visionary Photomontages of Herbert Bayer, 1929-1936  
  June 21 – September 27, 2015  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

On display in the Ridley-Tree Gallery Works on Paper section—and in tandem with the international loan exhibition The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come—is a selection of photographs by Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer (1900–1985). Influenced by the photographic works of László Moholy-Nagy and the modernist Bauhaus credo―there is no one true art form but rather an intersection of all art in pursuit of an idea, Bayer’s work as a photographer reflects his mastery of graphic design. Made in Berlin as Weimar culture faded and Hitler rose to power, the exhibited photomontages grapple with the tumultuous modern world as the artist experienced it between the years 1929 and 1936.

The Visionary Photomontages of Herbert Bayer, 1929-1936  
  June 21 – September 27, 2015  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

On display in the Ridley-Tree Gallery Works on Paper section—and in tandem with the international loan exhibition The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come—is a selection of photographs by Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer (1900–1985). Influenced by the photographic works of László Moholy-Nagy and the modernist Bauhaus credo―there is no one true art form but rather an intersection of all art in pursuit of an idea, Bayer’s work as a photographer reflects his mastery of graphic design. Made in Berlin as Weimar culture faded and Hitler rose to power, the exhibited photomontages grapple with the tumultuous modern world as the artist experienced it between the years 1929 and 1936.

Multi-platinum alternative rock heavyweights Incubus recently signed with Island Records, and released 4-song EP entitled Trust Fall (Side A) on May 12. After nearly two years off the grid conceptualizing and recording new material, Incubus, under the management of Johnny Wright at Wright Entertainment Group,has its sights set on a “non-traditional” album in 2015. Founding member Mike Einziger told Billboard.com that although the band didn’t have “any plans of making this record” the new music is “pretty indicative of where we are now. This is what the band sounds like in 2015.” The EP’s digital pre-order is available on iTunes, and the CD and vinyl versions of the EP can be pre-ordered now HERE. Twenty years since the release of their indie debut album in 1995, Fungus Amongus. Incubus went on to release six studio albums (the last three produced by Brendan O’Brien), achieving RIAA Gold, Platinum and multi-Platinum success; as well as five live albums. Four of their songs have hit #1 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, including “Drive” (2000, also Top 10 Pop), “Megalomaniac” (2003), “Anna Molly” (2006), and “Love Hurts” (2008).   ($44.50 - $64.50)

The Visionary Photomontages of Herbert Bayer, 1929-1936  
  June 21 – September 27, 2015  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

On display in the Ridley-Tree Gallery Works on Paper section—and in tandem with the international loan exhibition The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come—is a selection of photographs by Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer (1900–1985). Influenced by the photographic works of László Moholy-Nagy and the modernist Bauhaus credo―there is no one true art form but rather an intersection of all art in pursuit of an idea, Bayer’s work as a photographer reflects his mastery of graphic design. Made in Berlin as Weimar culture faded and Hitler rose to power, the exhibited photomontages grapple with the tumultuous modern world as the artist experienced it between the years 1929 and 1936.

On display in the Ridley-Tree Gallery Works on Paper section—and in tandem with the international loan exhibition The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come—is a selection of photographs by Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer (1900–1985). Influenced by the photographic works of László Moholy-Nagy and the modernist Bauhaus credo―there is no one true art form but rather an intersection of all art in pursuit of an idea, Bayer’s work as a photographer reflects his mastery of graphic design. Made in Berlin as Weimar culture faded and Hitler rose to power, the exhibited photomontages grapple with the tumultuous modern world as the artist experienced it between the years 1929 and 1936.

It wasn’t until the late 19th century that the HMS Challenger expedition travelling with a crew of scientists systematically studied the oceans, collected specimens from various depths, and laid the foundations for modern oceanography. DEEP tells the story of this pioneering voyage as well as highlights Museum specimens and current research.

The Visionary Photomontages of Herbert Bayer, 1929-1936  
  June 21 – September 27, 2015  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

On display in the Ridley-Tree Gallery Works on Paper section—and in tandem with the international loan exhibition The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come—is a selection of photographs by Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer (1900–1985). Influenced by the photographic works of László Moholy-Nagy and the modernist Bauhaus credo―there is no one true art form but rather an intersection of all art in pursuit of an idea, Bayer’s work as a photographer reflects his mastery of graphic design. Made in Berlin as Weimar culture faded and Hitler rose to power, the exhibited photomontages grapple with the tumultuous modern world as the artist experienced it between the years 1929 and 1936.

The Visionary Photomontages of Herbert Bayer, 1929-1936  
  June 21 – September 27, 2015  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

On display in the Ridley-Tree Gallery Works on Paper section—and in tandem with the international loan exhibition The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come—is a selection of photographs by Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer (1900–1985). Influenced by the photographic works of László Moholy-Nagy and the modernist Bauhaus credo―there is no one true art form but rather an intersection of all art in pursuit of an idea, Bayer’s work as a photographer reflects his mastery of graphic design. Made in Berlin as Weimar culture faded and Hitler rose to power, the exhibited photomontages grapple with the tumultuous modern world as the artist experienced it between the years 1929 and 1936.

The Visionary Photomontages of Herbert Bayer, 1929-1936  
  June 21 – September 27, 2015  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

On display in the Ridley-Tree Gallery Works on Paper section—and in tandem with the international loan exhibition The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come—is a selection of photographs by Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer (1900–1985). Influenced by the photographic works of László Moholy-Nagy and the modernist Bauhaus credo―there is no one true art form but rather an intersection of all art in pursuit of an idea, Bayer’s work as a photographer reflects his mastery of graphic design. Made in Berlin as Weimar culture faded and Hitler rose to power, the exhibited photomontages grapple with the tumultuous modern world as the artist experienced it between the years 1929 and 1936.

The Visionary Photomontages of Herbert Bayer, 1929-1936  
  June 21 – September 27, 2015  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

On display in the Ridley-Tree Gallery Works on Paper section—and in tandem with the international loan exhibition The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come—is a selection of photographs by Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer (1900–1985). Influenced by the photographic works of László Moholy-Nagy and the modernist Bauhaus credo―there is no one true art form but rather an intersection of all art in pursuit of an idea, Bayer’s work as a photographer reflects his mastery of graphic design. Made in Berlin as Weimar culture faded and Hitler rose to power, the exhibited photomontages grapple with the tumultuous modern world as the artist experienced it between the years 1929 and 1936.

New Orleans native Trombone Shorty and his band Orleans Avenue are an “unstoppable force” (The New York Times) in today’s music scene with a hard-edged funk, jazz, rock and hip-hop dynamic that delivers big on rock-star swagger with the musical chops to back it up. Their singular blend of performance and improvisation in the jazz tradition is one high-octane party that dares you not to dance in your seat, because in Shorty’s words, “No matter what kinds of problems we might be going through… music is the place where we can all get along. We can all jam” (The Guardian, U.K.). Don’t miss this chance to kick off A&L’s 2015-2016 season with Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue before they headline at the Monterey Jazz Festival the following evening!    ($11 - $48)

The Visionary Photomontages of Herbert Bayer, 1929-1936  
  June 21 – September 27, 2015  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

On display in the Ridley-Tree Gallery Works on Paper section—and in tandem with the international loan exhibition The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come—is a selection of photographs by Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer (1900–1985). Influenced by the photographic works of László Moholy-Nagy and the modernist Bauhaus credo―there is no one true art form but rather an intersection of all art in pursuit of an idea, Bayer’s work as a photographer reflects his mastery of graphic design. Made in Berlin as Weimar culture faded and Hitler rose to power, the exhibited photomontages grapple with the tumultuous modern world as the artist experienced it between the years 1929 and 1936.

The Visionary Photomontages of Herbert Bayer, 1929-1936  
  June 21 – September 27, 2015  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

On display in the Ridley-Tree Gallery Works on Paper section—and in tandem with the international loan exhibition The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come—is a selection of photographs by Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer (1900–1985). Influenced by the photographic works of László Moholy-Nagy and the modernist Bauhaus credo―there is no one true art form but rather an intersection of all art in pursuit of an idea, Bayer’s work as a photographer reflects his mastery of graphic design. Made in Berlin as Weimar culture faded and Hitler rose to power, the exhibited photomontages grapple with the tumultuous modern world as the artist experienced it between the years 1929 and 1936.

An Acoustic Evening with Chris Cornell  
  Chris Cornell  
  The Granada Theatre, 1214 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

Chris Cornell is a rock icon who thrives on contradictions. An innovator who resists genre labels, he was nonetheless the chief architect of the 90s grunge movement. Frequently ranked as one of the best voices in music history, he has successfully maintained his own unique identity over more than two decades as a multi-Grammy award winning musician, Golden Globe nominee and universally acclaimed singer, songwriter and lyricist. Seattle trailblazers Soundgarden were a law unto themselves, edgy, dark and deeply individual. Their savage soundscapes and rich lyrical imagery combined punk attitude with musical sophistication. In 1989, they became the first Seattle band to sign to a major label and their sound continued to change and evolve over the course of five pioneering 90s albums.    ($37.00 - $82.00)
