Wallbreaking Ceremony


The Santa Barbara Museum of Art broke new ground with a “Wallbreaking” ceremony on Saturday, November 14, 2015.  A dozen members of the Museum family wielded mini-sledgehammers as they smashed symbolic first holes in the walls of McCormick Gallery, signaling the start of the most important construction project in the SBMA’s 75-year history.
