Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCASB) seeks to enrich lives and inspire critical thinking through meaningful engagement with the art and ideas of our time. MCASB provides Santa Barbara and the Central Coast with exhibitions and programming that encourage discovery, cultivate new perspectives, and challenge the way we see and experience the world, ourselves, and each other. MCASB was founded in 1976 as an alternative arts space, the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum (CAF), by artists and art supporters seeking a venue dedicated solely to contemporary art. Both adaptive and responsive, MCASB is an incubator for new ideas and risk-taking artwork as it positions itself to be a contemporary museum for the 21st century.
ON VIEW AT MCASB
Sarah Rosalena: Pointing Star
The solo exhibition by Sarah Rosalena, Pointing Star, is a series of textiles and ceramics that refigure eight-pointed star motifs used across Turtle Island — here in Wixárika patterns — as a template for weaving images of stars. Works are viewed as hybrid forms, both created by hand and programmed software. For example, Spiral Arm uses a Hubble telescope image of the Milky Way, where the artist reinterpreted each pixel of the digital image into a set of complex weave structures, then handwoven on her loom.
