At the Art, Design & Architecture Museum we remain inspired by the capacity of art to connect and engage people around the globe. We launched Proyecto Museo on the occasion of GivingTuesday. The initiative aims to foster the Museum's reach and service to its Spanish-speaking communities on the UC Santa Barbara campus and beyond.
In 2021, we held simultaneous live Spanish translations during the Museum's Amid the Pandemic lecture series through the support of graduate students from the Spanish and Portuguese Department.
Contributions to Proyecto Museo will help the AD&A Museum to:
- Become a bilingual institution by translating exhibitions and programs into Spanish.
- Hire Spanish-speaking undergraduate and graduate students at UC Santa Barbara to support the museum’s projects.
- Develop a series of lectures throughout 2021-22 focused on Chicanx and Latinx cultures.
