About UCSB Reads:

UCSB Reads is an award-winning campus-wide and community-wide “one book” program started by Executive Vice Chancellor Gene Lucas in 2007 and led by the UCSB Library. Each summer, a committee of faculty, staff, students, and community partners convene to select an intellectually stimulating, interdisciplinary book by a living author that appeals to a wide range of readers and can be incorporated into the UCSB curriculum. The program kicks off at the start of the winter quarter with the Chancellor giving away free books to UCSB students in the Library. A variety of UCSB Reads events (book clubs, film screenings, exhibitions, and faculty panel discussions) exploring the book and its themes are held starting in January on the UCSB campus and other venues. The program culminates with a live appearance by the author. Events are usually free and open to the public.

Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UC Santa Barbara
Free. RSVP here.

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.
