Creating a Culture Collector
On Oct 6th from 11AM-6PM artist Patrick Melroy working with young artists from Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s Teens 4 Teens High school Internship Program, in collaboration with the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission will be at Youth Interactive and transform a commonplace shipping container into a Culture Collector for the Funk Zone.
Inspired by the SBMA exhibition, Scene on the Street: Doug Busch, in which photographer, Doug Busch uses his large format camera to elevate the everyday, Melroy and his cadre of students will capture and communicate community stories and images. Like scientists or explorers might gather reports in the field, and using only the low tech system of two way radio, the teen artists at the container satellite station will transmit culture bites back to mission control, located at the Museum.
Intrepid tourists and locals alike are encouraged to set out in search of the signal aided by free passes to and from the Museum. It’s scavenger hunt meets science; all artfully imagined and ready for shipping October 6th.
