County Arts Commissioners Increase Public Engagement
The Santa Barbara County Arts Commission hosts public open houses in each County Supervisory District to provide those constituents interested in arts and culture with an opportunity to meet their County Supervisor and Arts Commissioners and discuss a topic of interest related to the arts.
The “Second District Arts Conversation: Exploring and Discussing Public Art,” will be hosted by Second District County Supervisor Janet Wolf and Second District Arts Commissioners Dante Sigismondi, Mariko Tabar, and Dug Uyesaka on Monday, September 25 from 5:30-7 p.m. at the Goleta Library, 500 N. Fairview Avenue.
“The value of public art is often under-recognized,” said Supervisor Wolf. “I’m pleased to bring this important discussion to our community to help expand people’s understanding and appreciation of public art, and to encourage people to become involved as and creators and observers.”
The Arts Conversation open house series is free and open to the public.
"My Arts Commissioners and I look forward to this valuable opportunity to engage with our community in this way,” said Supervisor Wolf.
