Jackson BV.JPGHave you seen our latest installation?

Experience the 1970s and 1980s social scene on America’s Riviera through high fashion and photographs by Beverley Jackson.  The exhibition was inspired by a gift of over 600 images by Ms. Jackson to to our research library.

As the News-Press social columnist, Beverley 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,” which documented philanthropy- a driving force in our city. Her stories of celebrities, royalty, authors, artists and local personalities, as they came together to celebrate Santa Barbara, remind us that our city is a legend unto itself.

Our sincere thanks to our many supporters, Erin Graffy de Garcia, Guest Curator, Missy DeYoung, Fundraising Committee Chair and of course to Beverley Jackson for her inspiration.

Check out one of many great images, such as this one of Bianca Jagger.
