Salinas Valley: Past, Present and Future, an Art and Science exhibition opening on Friday May 3 at CSUMB Salinas Center for Arts and Culture, 1 Main St, Salinas, CA 93901
This exhibition uses the languages of science and art to interpret the dynamic landscapes of the Salinas Valley.
The exhibition features scientific interpretation by CSUMB students Samantha Lee, David Nava, Madalyn Price and their Geology Professor, Dr. Douglas Smith.
The featured artists who conceived the exhibition in conversation with these scientists are Paola Berthoin and Janet Whitchurch, who have created special installations for the exhibition.
Artists from the community were invited to contribute their images of the Salinas Valley and we are proud to feature 40 of their works. These artworks are executed in a variety of visual styles celebrating both the land and people of the Salinas Valley.
Experimental landscape films were created by CSUMB Cinematic Arts and Technology Students.
Our partners in creating interpretive images and hands-on experiences for this exhibition are First 5 Monterey County, Hartnell College: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and Big Sur Land Trust.
The exhibition will run from May 3 to August 2, with free events on May 3, June 7, July 5 and August 2.
