A selection of the material from Davidson Library’s Special Collections is now available digitally. Drawing from the rich holdings of audio recordings, photos, archives, scores, posters and more, the material is a valuable digital resource.

Some of the highlights are home movies of Lotte Lehman, photos from the Flying A movie studios, audio recordings made by the Center for the Democratic Institutions between 1958- 1987, and the John S. Kiewit Photography Collection.

The Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum would like you to temporarily donate your home for The Home Art, Revisited exhibition (May 21-July 17, 2011). This show reprises two previous CAF Home Shows (1988 and 1996) with ten Los Angeles-based artists creating site-specific installations in ten Santa Barbara area residences.
One house is still needed: a home with a pool installation or renovation planned for Spring 2011 (for a participating artist whose proposal includes a pool design). If you are interested in participating in this cutting-edge exhibition, being a part of the contemporary arts scene in Santa Barbara, and gaining a permanent work of art in your backyard, contact Karla at email@example.com or 805-966-5373, x105
