Santa Barbara Museum of Art to Welcome Authors Andrew Winer, Colm Tóibín for Parallel Stories Talk

Two acclaimed writers will share the stage and their thoughts about the creative process and the complexity of the human heart in a conversation in the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s Mary Craig Auditorium at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, June 12, 2016.

Andrew Winer — writer, artist, chair of creative writing at UC Riverside and recipient of an NEA Fellowship in fiction — will join Colm Tóibín — acclaimed Irish author, poet, essayist, critic, Man Booker Prize finalist, Irene and Sidney B. Silverman Professor of the Humanities at Columbia University and author of The Master, a subtle fictionalized portrait of Henry James.

The Parallel Stories talk will resonate from this statement by Henry James: “It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance... and I know of no substitute whatever for the force and beauty of its process.”

Parallel Stories is a literary and performing arts series that pairs art and artists with award-winning authors and performers of regional, national and international acclaim.

The series functions as a multidisciplinary lens through which to view the museum’s collection and special exhibitions. The Spring/Summer 2016 inaugural series focuses on artists and writers reacting to art or the art-making process.
The talk is free for SBMA members, $10 for non-members and $6 for senior non-members. Reserve or purchase tickets at the Museum visitor services desks or online at tickets.sbma.net.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
