This project was supported by a grant from the University of California Institute for Research in the Arts (UCIRA) for Shelby Graham, curator of the Sesnon Art Gallery at Porter College, to teach over a dozen students exhibition techniques while exploring their role as community artists. The City of Santa Cruz Arts Program also contributed funds for materials.
The Sesnon Gallery encourages interdisciplinary discourse through the lens of the arts. Gallery hours are Tuesday–Saturday, noon to 5:00pm and Wednesday until 8:00pm.
