California Coastal Cleanup Day

September 18, 2021

California Coastal Cleanup Day, a yearly beach and inland waterway effort to eliminate waste, will take place on Saturday, September 18 between 9 a.m. and noon.

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.

Coastal Cleanup Day is about much more than picking up trash. It’s a chance for Californians to join people around the world in expressing their respect for our oceans and waterways.

TAM Fall Exhibitions

September 18, 2021

Torrance Art Museum (TAM) presents the Opening Reception of the Fall Exhibitions on September 18 from 6 to 9 p.m. featuring the return of the boundary crossing SUR:Biennial, a curiously clever fiber art show, and videos from around the world.

The 6th SUR:biennial at the Torrance Art Museum assembles a lineup of artists whose works intersect the spaces between contemplative contemporary perspectives and representing and investigating pluralistic cultural heritages hailing from Mexico, Central America, and South America while living in Southern California, Oregon, and New York. These artists fuse artistic traditions from these cultures with current artistic perspectives to establish and celebrate, while also critiquing, notions of specific Latinx, Latin American, Xicana/o (Chicana/o) cultural identities and redefining identities within these designations.

Is it possible to analyze one’s own identity? Is it possible to stand to one side and do the same for one’s encompassing culture’s? These are questions essential to the SUR project. No answers are necessarily found here but the need to clarify the right questions to ask is fundamental.
