Art Twistory: A Dead Man's Tale

  • Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History 705 Front Street Santa Cruz, CA, 95060 United States (map)

What was John Borden doing in Santa Cruz in 1876?  Who commissioned the large wooden grave marker of this bachelor with no local relations?  Why would a 21st century scholar biographize him instead of the many better-known residents of Evergreen Cemetery?  These questions and more will be discussed (and possibly answered) during this pictorial historical presentation.   $10 donation appreciated, $5 students and seniors.  No reservations necessary.  (About Art Twistory)

** Extra BONUS: **  Items from the MAH archive will be on rare display during this event (Thanks, MAH!).
