Dez Porter: @deadstxle Live Painting: Dez Porter aka Deadstxle (she/they) is a visual artist from Santa Barbara, California. The name “Deadstxle” was created after dropping out of art school after learning fundamentals, reading about spiritual practices like ego death, and deciding to kill all limiting beliefs she had about pursuing an art career. Dez is a multi faceted creative who currently focuses on surrealism to explore themes of escapism, self expression, and the black & brown experience in her artwork. This Saturday Dez will be live painting, as well as sharing recent paintings, custom tote bags, and trucker hats.

Local Businesses 


Isla Vista Food Co-op: The Isla Vista Food Co-op is Santa Barbara County's only community-owned grocery store.   The Co-op was founded over 50 years ago by students and neighbors who wanted to ensure that the community would always have neighborhood access to high quality and affordable food, and that our local farmers and producers would have a dedicated store to sell to.   The Co-op is open to the public and participates in many UCSB campus and community events to help share resources to make grocery shopping fun and affordable, and most importantly, to keep investing back into Isla Vista so that everyone can benefit from having a grocery store that everyone owns together. We've accepted Cal-Fresh since the day our doors opened in 1974. We will be painting your own flower pot and will have soil and seeds for people to plant if they'd like.


Costco Wholesale:  At Costco we have an unwavering commitment to doing the right thing for our members, our employees, and our community. As a Costco member, you’ll save on brand-name apparel, electronics, tires, home decor, books, snacks, jewelry, seasonal items, and so much more.
