Guardians
Spirits of Protection

Oct. 4, 2021-April 24, 2022

“Guardians: Spirits of Protection,” a poignant exploration of the creative relationship between tragedy and design, is now at the UC Davis Design Museum through April 24.

The installation showcases a series of sculptures created by design professor emerita Ann Savageau. Made from found objects and flotsam that washed up on the beach coming from unknown places, the sculptures created by Savageau are composites of the disparate castoffs — in response to the tragic events in her life and to the pandemic.
