UCSB Professor Richard Ross Brings ‘Beautiful Trouble’


Approaching the end of a near-40-year tenure at UC Santa Barbara, Professor Richard Ross culminates his approach to teaching and praxis in a colloquium designed to expose eager minds to alternative, socially engaged art practices. Eleven weeks long, with 11 artists and 250 students, concluding in a major lecture by the Guerrilla Girls, and marking the beginning of Professor Ross’s retirement, ‘Making Art in a Time of Rage’ has never been more relevant.
