Edwin Deakin and the Evolution of California Art

COST: [$0-$15]
Organizer: Santa Barbara Historical Museum

The California mission system left behind an architectural legacy, which artist Edwin Deakin began to document in the 1890s. At that time, several of the missions were in a state of disrepair and decay and there was growing alarm that California would lose these architectural monuments of its past.

Join Mónica Orozco, Executive Director of Old Mission Santa Barbara, to learn the story of Deakin’s oils of the 21 California missions, their significance for California art and in the preservation of the missions and how they came to the Santa Barbara Mission’s Archive-Library.

Date and time: Wednesday, January 17th, 5:30-7:00pm

Location: Santa Barbara Historical Museum, 136 E. De la Guerra St, Santa Barbara CA 93101

Admission: $15 Guests, $10 Members, Free for students. Buy tickets here.
