SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 12PM Sunday, March 14
This online exhibit is conceived as a community space to process what happened to us during
this unprecedented year. From bread-baking
in lockdown to the CZU fire, and all the social, political, and economic tensions in between
that left both our inner and outer landscapes
forever changed, 2020 was grist for the mill
of the soul. Now is the time to share your
artistic expression of the 2020 experience.
In compliance with state & county orders, the Santa Cruz Mountains Art Center is temporarily closed
for in-person activities until further notice. Thank you for your understanding.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the Art Center soon.
