The Creative Community: Ensemble Theatre, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and UCSB Arts and Lectures
This episode of “The Creative Community” begins with an inside look at the Ensemble Theatre Company’s new season and new home at the New Vic. Host David Starkey talks with Executive Artistic Director Jonathan Fox about the 2013-14 plays, actors and directors, and takes a quick look with Jonathan at the new theatre, still under construction at the time of the interview.
In the next segment, Karen Sinsheimer, Curator of Photography at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, takes Starkey on a walking tour of the museum, with a focus on the exhibition “John Divola: As Far As I Could Get.” The exhibition is running concurrently at SBMA, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Pomona College Museum of Art.
In the final segment, Starkey interviews Miller McCune Executive Director Celesta M. Billeci and Associate Director Roman Baratiak of UCSB Arts & Lectures. Arts & Lectures’ mission is to “enhance the educational experience at the university, foster excellence and creativity, and connect UCSB and the richly varied communities of the Central Coast.” The interview, which took place in the Courthouse’s sunken garden, focuses on upcoming Arts & Lectures events.
