The Visions and Voices Collective invites you to Felix Kulpa Gallery in downtown Santa Cruz to experience the intersection of art, love, and civic engagement. The gallery will be transformed into an inspirational space for visitors to look, listen, and also be heard — on pressing issues like housing, immigration, definitions of personhood, and the health of our ecosystems. Innovation requires creative problem solving, and this collaborative of local artists invites our community to get creative, together.
The Visions and Voices Collective manifesto will be on display in the gallery space, alongside work from 10 member artists ranging from traditional drawing and painting to fiber sculpture and video installation.
