Opening Reception: Solitary Garden

Solitary Garden is a participatory public sculpture and garden project by jackie sumell. Located overlooking the Monterey Bay near the Baskin Art Studios at UC Santa Cruz, the sculpture takes the size and shape of a solitary confinement cell. The stark 6x9 sculpture is surrounded by a garden tended and planted as a collaboration between Tim Young, a prisoner currently incarcerated at San Quentin, and students and volunteers at UC Santa Cruz. As plants grown and climb the bars of the prison cell, the project aims to allow the community to imagine a landscape without prisons. Please join us for the opening of this exhibition, Tuesday 5:30 p.m.

Tuesday, November 5 at 5:30pm to 6:45pm
