17 Jun “Fallout” Mural Currently on Display in UCSB Library
On view through June 17
First Floor Gallery
In conjunction with the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center-IHC series “Fallout: In the Aftermath of War,” the UCSB Library is currently showing a large-scale mural that was co-created by artist-veteran Dominic Fredianelli and UCSB students Emmanuel Barragan, Natalia Cardenas, Ime Diaz, Jacky Martinez, and Bryan Orpinela. The piece reflects, through graffiti-like images, Fredianelli’s own experiences as a veteran of the War in Afghanistan and the experiences of UCSB student veterans.
Throughout the 2012-13 academic year, the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center has engaged scholars, public intellectuals, journalists, artists, and social workers to explore the impact of war through topics such as the psychological and social challenges confronting veterans and their communities; the diverse narratives and commentaries that circulate about war; the place of war in the social imagination; and the manifold forms of human aggression. The Library is pleased to partner with UCSB’s Interdisciplinary Humanities Center.
