The hot weather has its benefits. It’s good for ink not freezing in pens and watercolors drying quickly – which is ideal for participants of “Let’s Draw Davis,” the unique sketchcrawl series that explores the city.
On Saturday July 15th, a sketchcrawl will explore the hidden courtyards and alleys of downtown Davis (more shade!), starting at Orange Court (off of E Street, between 1st and 2nd), and finishing at the little courtyard behind the Pence Gallery (D Street).
Pete Scully has lived in Davis since late 2005, working at the Statistics Department of UC Davis since 2006 as graduate coordinator. Pete is an avid urban sketcher who draws the everyday world around him – streets, people, fire hydrants, all urban details – in ink line and watercolor wash, using his sketchbook to have a conversation with his environment. He draws to remember, in case he forgets.
Design-by-Design is the annual juried student competition highlighting the breadth, talent, and diversity of the Department of Design, as shown through the outstanding course work produced over the past year.
One of the earliest toys devised for children, baby rattles have evolved over the centuries into a variety of shapes and sizes. They are symbolic of how design responds to socio-economic factors and cultural identity, and represent a design chronology of style, function, sound and materials. This exhibition features over 100 rattles from the important collection of Lu and Maynard Lyndon, the founders and owners of Placewares+LyndonDesign in Gualala, California.
