DEEP  
  The John and Peggy Maximus Gallery  
  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 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.

Incubus  
  Incubus  
  Santa Barbara Bowl, 1122 N. Milpas Street, Santa Barbara CA

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)
