Santa Barbara Cemetery Tour
Learn about Alfredo Ramos Martínez’s murals in a guided tour of the chapel of the Santa Barbara Cemetery. Designed by famed architect George Washington Smith, the chapel tells a fascinating story about early art patronage in Santa Barbara. Ramos Martínez was invited to paint a mural in the chapel in 1934, and the resulting work is an extraordinary example of the artist’s style and thematic interests. The tour will be led by David Petry, historian and author of "The Best Last Place: A History of the Santa Barbara Cemetery," with the curator of "Alfredo Ramos Martínez: On Paper."
RSVP required, space is limited. Event will take place rain or shine, with time subject to change based on the cemetery’s schedule. Questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
