Experience the 1970s and 1980s social scene on America’s Riviera through high fashion, photographs and fascinating stories of Beverley Jackson. The exhibition–Stars, Snapshots and Chanel–will be on display at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum (136 E. De la Guerra St.) from Jan. 28–June 5.
As the Santa Barbara News-Press social columnist, Jackson made the rounds of Santa Barbara’s most glittering events, beginning in 1968. A talented photographer, she preserved our community’s social whirl through her column “By The Way,” capturing the stories of celebrities, royalty, authors, artists and local personalities, who were part of Santa Barbara’s fabled landscape.
The opening reception is on Jan. 28 at 5:30 p.m. Guests enjoy free entry, but must RSVP in advance. 1970s and 1980s attire is encouraged.
Guests also enjoy free entry to the museum on First Thursday (Feb. 4) from 5–8 p.m.
On Fri., Feb. 5, Erin Graffy and Beverly Jackson will host a talk at the museum from 11 a.m.–1 p.m. RSVP is required.
