1st Thursday in November


JOIN US THIS 1st THURSDAY, November 2, 2017 / 5:00PM – 9:00PM at SBCAST. Art by street artist Robbie Conal and folk instrument inventor Alan Struebing will be on view. Ongoing: UCSB Media, Art and Technology Department in Studio F, SBCAST’s courtyard Beer Garden, and rooftop Tea and Crumpets.

Robbie Conal will exhibit posters and prints in Studio E. The Washington Post has called Robbie “America’s foremost street artist.” His work has been featured on “CBS This Morning,” “Charlie Rose,” and in Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Nation, Vanity Fair and People magazine.

In 1986, angered by the Reagan Administration’s rabid abuse of political power in the name of representative democracy, Robbie Conal began making satirical oil portraits of politicians and bureaucrats, turning them into street posters. He developed an irregular guerrilla army of volunteers who helped him poster the streets of major cities around the country. Over the past 30 years, Robbie has made more than 100 street posters satirizing politicians of all stripes, televangelists, the news and entertainment media, and global capitalists. This exhibition is curated by Maiza Hixson in conjunction with the MFA colloquium series held at UC Santa Barbara.
