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.
