UCSC Print Sale This Weekend


Every year in college, my favorite event was the UCSC Print Sale. The whole studio art department at UCSC sells prints for absurdly low prices for one long weekend. My house is still full of things I bought at the print sale, and if I were in the Bay Area, I'd be planning to drive down right now. If you're in Silicon Valley, it's a great excuse to get over the hill and spend a great day in the Scruz, and if you're already in the Monterey Bay Area, you should just go. It's great.

Walter Mosley, author of Known to Evil and more: interview on The Sound of Young America

Walter Mosley

Walter Mosley is the author of more than 30 books in a broad variety of genres, but he's best known for his detective fiction. His Easy Rawlins series began with 1989's best-selling Devil in a Blue Dress. His latest series features a new hero, the pugnacious, middle-aged Leonid McGill. He just released the second novel featuring McGill, Known to Evil.

Before he was a novelist, Mosley was a computer programmer. Originally born in Los Angeles, Mosley spent time in the Bay Area before moving to New York City, where the McGill novels are set.

UCSC Print Sale


Every year at UC Santa Cruz, the art department hosts a gala print sale. You can buy original works by UCSC artists for as little as five or ten dollars in all formats, from huge works on paper to greeting cards and t-shirts. I always felt the print sale was one of the best parts about living in Santa Cruz, and my home still has several prints I purchased there prominently displayed. The works available are an extraordinary range of styles and aesthetics, and it's impossible to leave without buying something.

This year's sale is June 6th and 7th (that's Friday and Saturday!) on the UCSC campus. You can find more information here.

UCSC Print Sale this Weekend


One of my favorite annual events in Santa Cruz is the UCSC Print Sale, which is coming up this weekend. Whether you live in the Monterey bay area, the south bay, or San Francisco, it's worth a trip.

Once a year, the art department at UCSC throws open their doors to sell student art. Some of it isn't to my taste, but every time I go, I come home with a few beautiful pieces. There are prints on paper, prints on fabric, block prints, lithographs, t-shirts, cards and a million other things. And the most expensive pieces are only thirty or forty dollars.

From where I'm sitting now, I can see three pieces that I bought at the print sale, and there are a few more in my closet (on clothes, of course). It's a wonderful event, and not to be missed. I reccomend driving down from the Bay Area for a morning at the print sale and an afternoon at the boardwalk or out on the beach. You won't regret it.
