The Sullivan Goss’curatorial forces that be opted not to pussyfoot about or take rhetorical roads less traveled with its current group show, “The Artists of UCSB” with “UCSB” in jumbo font. The gist: all artists aboard are alums of the university, and some are past and current teachers there. The show came about as a response to a gesture from the University to try to mediate the gap between life and culture on campus and in the Santa Barbara community, and was timed to run during the recent all-Gaucho reunion.
