Save the Date! Come to the exciting opening of 3 new exhibits at the Art, Design, and Architecture Museum on the UC Santa Barbara campus: Peake/Picasso, Goya: Disasters of War, and Unbuilt UCSB. Peake/Picasso looks at the unique friendship between two artists: Channing Peake and Pablo Picasso. Through photographs, prints, sculptures, drawings, paintings and ephemera from the 1940s–60s the exhibition will examine similarities in their artistic practices and lay bare their playful camaraderie. The University of California San Diego has lent the print series, a gift of Robert and Karen Hoehn, for the exhibition, Goya: Disasters of War. Goya completed the eighty etchings in the series from 1810 to 1823, in different printing techniques including engraving and drypoint. In Disasters of War, Goya’s meditative focus on each bleak tableau expresses his disillusionment with the evolution of Enlightenment values after the foreign occupation of his country, while remaining the highly personal and intimate records of a witness to violence. Unbuilt UCSB displays architectural designs created for the University of California, Santa
Barbara (UCSB) campus, which were never constructed or have yet to be completed. These exhibits will be on view from July 13 to September 22, 2013.
