SANTA BARBARA: If you've been curious about postwar art in Santa Barbara, today is the day to go check it out as a part of Pacific Standard Time (and the events don't kick off until 1pm, so there's still time for you to drive!) The events kick off at the Art, Design & Architecture Museum at UCSB with the public opening of "Carefree California: Cliff May and the Romance of the Ranch House, 1920-1960" at 1pm until 5pm. The museum is located at 552 University Rd., Santa Barbara. The Santa Barbara Museum of Art will be hosting a free community art celebration from 1pm until 4pm in coordination with its exhibition "Pasadena to Santa Barbara: A Selected History of Art in Southern California, 1951-1969" at 1130 State St., Santa Barbara. For more information on the events going on, visit Pacific Standard Time's website or download this flier.

FASHION: MOCA's exhibit "The Total Look" at the Pacific Design Center on the creative collaboration between fashion designer Rudi Gernreich, his model and muse Peggy Moffitt, and Moffitt's late husband, the photographer William Claxton. It opens today and runs through May 20. For more info, visit MOCA's website.

FEMINISM: The exhibition "Doin’ It in Public: Feminism and Art" at Otis College was extended due to its popularity, but today is the final day. The exhibition features historical ephemera and documentation, the show surveys the work of groundbreaking feminist artists, designers and artist collectives who gathered together at the Los Angeles Woman’s Building from 1973 through 1991. Artist Linda Vallejo will preside over a closing ceremony at 3pm that "pays homage to the elements of earth, water, fire, and air, the four cardinal directions, mother earth, father sky, and the great spirit." Otis College is located at 9045 Lincoln Blvd. For more information, visit the school's calendar.
