The Espresso Police: December 17, 2011–March 18, 2012

Café Pergolesi, the first generation of modern coffee shops in Santa Cruz, was founded by Frank and Judy Foreman. In conjunction with Futzie Nutzle, this installation will serve as a gallery/café with a performative bent.  The Espresso Police will make unannounced visits and offer coffee to Museum visitors throughout the exhibition. There will be musical performances by the artists who played in the Café, artworks by Nutzle, Judy Foreman and Frank Foreman as well as artifacts from the old Café.

This exhibition is in the 3rd floor lobby at the MAH.
