Local artist activist, educator, community organizer, Kyle Forrest Lane-McKinley came into KZSC to talk with Nada Miljkovic about his current installation, Building Stories: secret spatial histories of Santa Cruz at the MAH and his work at the Social and Environmental Practice in the Arts at UC Santa Cruz, AKA SPARC, as Project Coordinator and Research Assistant.

Co-created with another DANM alum, Nick Lally, and as a part of the buildig collective, Building Stories: secret spatial histories of Santa Cruz is a part of a three month exhibition titled “Work in Progress,” at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History (MAH). Every other week, participants are invited  to the museum to drink coffee, eats snacks, and create shared spatial histories by sharing stories in a shared space. These shared histories will become a giant concept map drawn on the walls that will serve as a record of these meetings and explore connections between the social and material practices that continually recreate the spaces we inhabit.

Upcoming dates and themes:

  • Jan 25: UC Santa Cruz and the greenbelt. 2-6 pm. 5-6pm facilitated conversation with specially invited guests.
  • Feb 8: the mighty San Lorenzo River and its levees. 2-6 pm. 5-6pm facilitated conversation with specially invited guests.
