Anguish, Anger, and Activism: Legacies of the 1969 Santa Barbara Oil Spill

Thursday, April 25, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Friday, April 26, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Special Research Collections, 3rd Floor Mountainside, UCSB Library, UC Santa Barbara
Free Event. Exhibit open to the public. No RSVP required.

The 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill is frequently cited as a catalyst for the birth of the modern environmental movement. This exhibition, which is curated by librarians Kristen LaBonte and Annie Platoff, will examine the connections between this historic disaster and environmental activism in the local area.

Oil Slick

Ocean Gallery, UCSB Library, UC Santa Barbara

This new work by Rose Briccetti was created as a companion to the UCSB Library exhibition Anguish, Anger, and Activism: Legacies of the 1969 Santa Barbara Oil Spill.

Oil Slick collects and collages images of--often petroleum based--consumer goods with the popular iridescent finish known as "oil slick." Though visually beautiful, the oil slick finish refers to pollution and environmental disaster. The images together create a work that explores themes of consumerism, our continued addiction to oil, and beauty in tragedy.

Free Event.

Douglas Baker (’01 Ph.D., Department of Education, UC Santa Barbara) will give the inaugural Gevirtz School Alumni Lecture entitled “Invisible Lessons of Graduate School: Implications for Our Careers and Leadership”. A reception follows.

In graduate school we learn to accept the adage attributed to Aristotle and Einstein, “The more you know, the more you know you don’t know.” Of course, we may not recognize what we don’t know and lessons, invisible at the moment, to address our ignorance often become critical for our careers. In his talk, Doug will explore invisible lessons he experienced at UCSB and how they informed his teaching and leadership.

While still a graduate student at UC Santa Barbara, Prof. Tomas Sanchez (MA 1975 History) began collecting works of art that represented the history, culture, and contemporary experiences of Chicanos in California. Though he started with posters, Sanchez began to acquire prints in the early 1980s by the young artists he met and befriended during gallery outings in southern California. ¡Chicanismo! represents only a small portion of the impressive collection Sanchez has assembled throughout a lifetime of study and acquisitions.

This exhibition is mounted in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Chicana/o Studies Department. Prof. Sanchez was an early student in the department and credits his experiences at UC Santa Barbara as instrumental to his success as a professor of history having taught full time at Moorpark, Oxnard, and Ventura Colleges. The AD&A Museum thanks Prof. Sanchez for sharing his collection and stories.
