California Coastal Cleanup Day, a yearly beach and inland waterway effort to eliminate waste, will take place Saturday, September 16.
You’ve been recycling for years, reduced your water consumption, turned in the old gas guzzler for a cleaner fuel ride and maybe even installed solar panels. What more can be done? Funny you should ask. Join thousands of volunteers up and down the coast as they gather to remove trash and debris that eventually ends up in the ocean.
California Coastal Cleanup Day was first organized in 1985 by the California Coastal Commission. Last year, over half a million volunteers removed almost 18.3 million pounds of trash and debris in only a few hours from beaches, rivers and lakes throughout the state.

HOPE explores the reciprocal influence of western and latin American video and new media art in Cuba. No other country has been so equally torn between love and hate, desire and neglect, isolation and reception, western and eastern ideologies. Indeed, the Caribbean island nation is so full of contradiction that it is no wonder it became a hotbed for contemporary and new media art. The richness and sheer number of Cuba’s facets grew from postmodern, neo-baroque, conceptual and minimalistic roots – to name just a few western influences.
Experience #31: HOPE, will run through January 28, 2018.
Third Thursdays, May through December
