“Weary Blues: Poetry and Jazz from Langston Hughes” Exhibition
UCSB Arts Library, UCSB Campus, Santa Barbara
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 tells the story of this pioneering voyage as well as highlights Museum specimens and current research.

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

My Fair Lady
Solvang Festival Theater
, 420 2nd Street, Solvang
Professor Henry Higgins makes a wager that he can raise a lowly Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, to the status of a high-society debutante in Lerner and Loewe's hit musical, My Fair Lady. Based on Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion, My Fair Lady plays as powerfully for modern-day audiences as it did in 1912. Eliza's transformation illuminates society's prejudices, the gender divide, and personal identity. With classic musical numbers such as Wouldn't It Be Loverly?, The Rain In Spain, and I Could Have Danced All Night. Lerner and Loewe's creation is as much a classic play as a classic musical.
