Enriching Program at Santa Barbara’s Doorstep

“Arts & Lectures offers our community an incredible array of artistic offerings, both classic and contemporary, that are unequaled in any other community of our size in this country.  Every one of those 200-plus annual offerings are brought to the University, its students, and our community.  A&L’s education outreach, to both English and Spanish speaking students, enriches younger students immeasurably.  We are incredibly fortunate to have such a varied and enriching program right here on our doorsteps!”
– Sara Miller McCune
A&L Council Member and Former Co-Chair

Join Us

For Celesta Billeci, the call to action for those who want to support Arts & Lectures’ vital role in the community is simple: “Join us.”
“There is a place for you at Arts & Lectures,” Billeci says. “Come on over and check us out! We’ve got something for nearly everyone – the arts maven, the politics junkie, the active senior, the home chef – you name it, you’ll find yourself inspired – and entertained, and even educated! – at Arts & Lectures.
“And once you’ve bought a ticket and you’ve seen what we do,” Billeci adds, “you’ll realize that joining our circle of contributors and further connecting with Arts & Lectures will deeply enrich your life here in Santa Barbara.”
