Looking In, Looking Out, the latest exhibition at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art (SBMA), opens Oct. 18 and focuses on Latin American photography, all drawn from the museum’s permanent collection.

The 47 works in Looking In, Looking Out explore various aspects of Latin American history and culture. Representing works produced by artists and photographers living and working in Brazil, Columbia, Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico, and other nations, the exhibit highlights the wide-ranging landscapes of these regions while also documenting many of the societal changes that have occurred from the 1930’s to the present.

This exhibition provides a selection of thought-provoking images that highlights both the unique and diverse tapestry that is Latin America. This is also the final exhibition that Karen Sinsheimer, Curator of Photography, organized before her passing on July 28.

The exhibition is on display from Oct. 18–Feb. 14 at the SBMA, 1130 State St. It is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and offers Chase Free Thursday Evenings from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, please call 805/963-4364 or visit their website.
