Kenny Slaught, an active member and supporter of UCSB Foundation, has recently posted on his blog at KennySlaught.com that “The University of California Santa Barbara announced on May 26, 2016 that it is a Grand Challenges Explorations grant winner.” He extends his congratulations to the university.
The effort supported by Kenny Slaught works towards the safeguarding of the antique character of physical building while also providing for forward-thinking upgrades. Furthermore, through fortifications like seismic upgrades, both the building and the tens of thousands of pieces of art inside will be better shielded. The plan increases the gallery space by 25 percent to make the museum an even better center of the Santa Barbara community. Similarly, the restoration project is the greatest effort ever begun by the museum.
Fervent supporter of the Santa Barbara’s heritage and arts, Kenny Slaught has recently revealed his support for the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s “The Image More” campaign by endorsing it on his blog at KennySlaught.com. The Santa Barbara Museum of Art plays a significant part in the local community by offering educational programs and connecting residents and visitors to truly amazing works of art. The museum has lately launched a big renovation project that includes the launch of the Imagine More campaign, an impressive fundraising initiative that will provide for better gallery space, more community space, necessary updates to the building, and a versatile museum experience. The museum hopes to raise $50 million in capital to realize these goals through the Imagine More Campaign.
