Lookback on how Santa Cruz County rebuilt itself after the Loma Prieta Earthquake 30 years ago. Exhibit opening: Art & Healing: 30 Years After the Loma Prieta Earthquake.

Hear from the MAH's Interim Executive Director, Antonia Franco. Join Antonia and some local leaders in Abbott Square at 6:15pm for a First Friday, Loma Prieta welcoming statement.

Groove to live music out in Abbott Square with Driftr. Driftr is a modern blend of authenticity, soul and quality production that seeks to illuminate the peaks and development of the human condition. Combining hip-hop, soul music and electronic elements the resulting sound is thoughtful, genuine and intelligent with traces of grit.

Drop-in at the craft tables inside the museum to create a stamp that represents why you love Santa Cruz and decorate love letters to Santa Cruz County.
