Off campus, Taller Arte del Nuevo Amanecer, or TANA, has two new exhibitions opening over the next two weeks.
On campus, a student exhibition combining entomology and design will be presented Wednesday night (June 6). The Arts and Humanities Graduate Exhibition and three other art shows are still open — but you have only until around mid-month to see them.
The TANA exhibitions join one other UC Davis exhibition off campus: Notebooks of a Body, works by first-year Master of Fine Arts students, running through Aug. 12 in Sacramento.
For all exhibitions, admission is free and open to the public.
Taller Arte del Amanacer is Spanish for Art Workshop of the New Dawn, founded and run by the Department of Chicana/o Studies in 2009. The art center, in Woodland, encourages the community to explore and represent Chicano culture through silk-screening, mural painting and other classes.
