These pictures were taken at the Museum of Art and History in Santa Cruz, California. The museum is currently holding an exhibit of works by Ze Frank and Stefan Boucher. (If you don’t know who Ze Frank is I seriously suggest you look him up, he’s done lots of interesting projects, and two TED talks. I’d also recommend watching his Vlog, especially the video entitled An Invocation For Beginnings, it’s really amazing) The weekend we went we actually got to meet him and hear presentations by him and Stefan Boucher, another artist. The MAH has lots of interesting, sort of out there exhibits, it’s not a very large museum, but it has a very different experience to offer it’s visitors. I’d recommend a visit here if you are in Santa Cruz, it’s very unique, and much of the works on display here allow visitors to really participate and become more fully involved in their viewing experience. Many of the works are community oriented, and work to incorporate all viewers who choose to become involved. It’s an awesome place, and it’s absolutely worth checking out!

Taken at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. This is a really fun (fairly reasonable) place to come for people of any age; lots of rides, games, and unhealthy (but delicious) food. The Boardwalk has been providing both locals and visitors with a great place to hang out and have fun for over a hundred years! It's a blast, and i'd highly recommend it if you are visiting the beautiful town of Santa Cruz. I'd also advise going at night (check the hours for when you are visiting) it's really cool to see it all lit up 🙂
