Tanya Ragir

If you take a peek at Tanya Ragir’s Facebook page, you feel as if you’re stepping into the intimate world of a remarkable artist that rarely gets seen.

Digital Arts and New Media (DANM) Technical Coordinator, Colleen Jennings, has designed a 3D model of the Mary Porter Sesnon Art Gallery that will enable the Irwin 2020: Collective Solitude exhibition to take place online. 

If you’ve driven through UC Santa Cruz’s main entrance and past the Barn Theater, you’ve probably noticed the colorful signs on the side of the barn that announce a variety of upcoming events, from music concerts to lectures. 

Jimin Lee

The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that separates North and South Korea is an unlikely setting for an art gallery. Established in 1953 as part of an armistice agreement that ended three years of brutal war, the DMZ is a 2.5-mile-wide band that runs 155 miles across the Korean peninsula, serving as a buffer zone between the two countries. Yet a new art gallery does actually exist in that strange locale. And this spring and summer, the Yeongang Gallery has been featuring Global Station: Until the Next Voyage, a solo exhibition by UC Santa Cruz art professor Jimin Lee, running April 19 to July 30.

UC Santa Cruz will present the premiere of thesis films by nine graduating M.F.A. students in the field of social documentation this year—in a special online presentation from June 15 to August 31. 

Dee Hibbert-Jones

UC Santa Cruz professor of art Dee Hibbert-Jones has won a 2019 International Documentary Association (IDA) grant for Run With It, an animated documentary film she is currently working on in collaboration with San Francisco artist Nomi Talisman.
