Exhibition: Isla Vista–Building a Community, 1970-2016
9:00 AM until Friday, March 24, 2017 – 5:00 PM
This exhibition explores the political, cultural, and social struggles of Isla Vista becoming an independent, cohesive community, from 1970 to the present day. Since the protests of the 1970s, grassroots activism has improved conditions in the area, but Isla Vista, populated mainly by UCSB students, still faces difficulties as an unincorporated college town. Cityhood remains elusive.
Located at the Special Research Collections, 3rd Floor, Mountain Side, this exhibition is available for viewing during Special Research Collections hours.
