2023 signature fundraising event

Off the Wall Reimagined, Santa Barbara Museum of Art

2023 OTWR Theme

The OFF THE WALL REIMAGINED 2023 event, was a tribute to all ART EDUCATORS IN THE SANTA BARBARA COMMUNITY. The SBMA Women’s Board members passion for Art, includes a deep appreciation for those special artist teachers who not only educate our youth, but also help reveal to students their own potential in the arts. They have not only helped open their eyes, but enhanced the lives of students.

In seeking artist educators, the OFF THE WALL REIMAGINED committee exhaustively canvased and reached out to local artists, and teaching artists to participate in our event. These seven Featured Artists are prime exemplars of the artist participants in the 2023 OFF THE WALL REIMAGINED event.

Cecia Hess Challenge

The OFF THE WALL REIMAGINED Committee proudly announces the Cecia Hess Challenge as we continue our fundraising work to benefit the Santa Barbara Museum of Art!

In 2009, members Cecia Hess and Peggy Odgers brought OFF THE WALL to the Women’s Board. We are grateful for their fundraising enthusiasm and vision by initiating this exciting art event into our lives.

Cecia was a tireless champion of the Women’s Board and our mission to support the programs and activities of the SBMA.

We hope you will join us by participating in the Cecia Hess Challenge as we honor Cecia for her contributions to the SBMA Women’s Board.
