First Friday at the Institute of the Arts and Sciences

June 7 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us on June 7 for First Friday at the Institute of the Arts and Sciences (100 Panetta Ave, Santa Cruz, CA). Enjoy an after-hours viewing of Seeing through Stone with student-led exhibition walkthroughs at 5:15 p.m. and 6 p.m. Admission is always free.

Student-led Tour Schedule:
5:15 p.m.: Tour by Alexandra Singer

Seeing through Stone invites viewers to see beyond the current global realities of the prison complex, drawing attention to already existing practices of imagining the world otherwise. The exhibition includes more than eighty national and international artists and collectives, sixteen newly commissioned projects, as well as works of video, painting, sculpture, installation, sound and performance.

Seeing through Stone is a collaboration between the Institute of the Arts and Sciences at University of California, Santa Cruz, San José Museum of Art, and Santa Cruz Barrios Unidos, and works are on view at all three sites. Learn more at our website: https://ias.ucsc.edu/

The Institute of the Arts and Sciences is pleased to participate in Santa Cruz’s First Friday Art Tour.
