Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum (CAF), now known as the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCA) is a non-profit, non-collecting alternative art space dedicated to the exhibition, education, and cultivation of the arts of our time. Celebrating its 37th anniversary in 2013, MCASB is the premier venue for contemporary art between Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Bloom Projects: Ro Snell, All that is left
Santa Barbara-based artist Ro Snell has been invited to create a new body of work for CAF’s Fall 2013 iteration of Bloom Projects. All that is left will examine what remains, both physical and abstract, after a process or a period of time. The project considers what is left, not only in the material sense but also in the mind. Using assembled objects, re-contextualized organic forms, and combined printed images, the body of work will be an installation concerning perception, disintegration, emotion, and recollection.
