UCSB Red Barn (Old Gym)
May 20 – August 13, 2015
A space for healing and reflection, this exhibition honored the acts of love and compassion that emerged in Isla Vista and on the UC Santa Barbara campus after the tragedy of May 23, 2014. Through photographs of planned and unplanned memorials, artifacts and messages left at spontaneous memorial sites, and documentation of support from around the globe, the exhibition remembered those who died and were injured, and told the story of a community empowered by its own humanity in reacting to a collective loss.
The images in the slideshow above are just a sampling of images from the exhibition and collection.
