UCSB MultiCultural Center to Debut Vibiana Aparicio-Chamberlin Exhibit ‘Paz y Amor: Make Peace’

The UC Santa Barbara MultiCultural Center is thrilled to announce Vibiana Aparicio-Chamberlin’s art exhibition entitled “Paz y Amor: Make Peace” for the Spring 2016 quarter.

The exhibit will be open for visitation until June 10, with an opening reception with the artist at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 12, in the MCC Lounge.

The artist invites UCSB students and faculty to express their truth by collaborating on a Peace and Love free form sewing and embroidering activity on a fabric huipil for a Paz y Amor Collaborative Sewing Circle during the reception.

Aparicio-Chamberlin is a painter and writer from Pasadena, Calif. She is guided by the 5 C’s: “color, the culture of heritage and politics, cotidiana or the common, collage or layering and caprice or the unpredictable.”

Employing mixed-media and assemblage, she makes altars, installations, etchings and prints that are vibrant and highly personal, honoring her Mexican heritage through art.

“Of concern for me are struggling immigrant families and workers, abused women, children and elders and the destruction of our environment,” she said.

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!
