    Origami for an Interdependent World Artist Lecture with Robert Salazar

    Robert Salazar, an origami artist and wildlife activist from Santa Barbara, will speak about origami’s metamorphic nature and how harmony is readily accessible, even among the thousands of complex interdependent folds—ranging in size from a fraction of an inch to several feet in length—that might inhabit a simple sheet of paper, to create something beautiful.

    Salazar will introduce the audience to each of his original works on exhibit, their origins, and the stories of the maritime wildlife and people they portray.

    A City at War: Chicago Film Screening

    Just prior to America’s involvement in World War II, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) called on the country to become “an arsenal of democracy,” to start producing war material to help defeat the Axis powers. Through first-hand accounts, declassified films, and period images, A City at War: Chicago explores how the Windy City answered that call, and how a friendship between FDR and Chicago mayor Ed Kelly helped to set everything in motion.

    The History of Oil in the Santa Barbara Channel--Opening Reception

    Naturally occurring oil and asphalt seeps close to Summerland were known to the native Chumash peoples who used asphaltum from this area for thousands of years. From 1890-1898, asphalt from Goleta, Carpenteria, and More Mesa was mined and shipped around the country. In fact, some of the historic streets of New Orleans are paved with tar from the Alcatraz Asphalt Company’s mine on land in Goleta, now part of UCSB.
