  • UCSC’s Brain, Mind, and Consciousness Society Opens Art Show at Felix Kulpa Gallery

    If the name Felix Kulpa Gallery & Sculpture Garden doesn’t quite ring familiar, the sight of it might. A tall chainlink fence surrounding a white gravel yard, industrial objects strewn about and an unassuming building squatting in the back—it could almost pass for a junkyard if not for its prime downtown location.

  • Tiny Home Makeover

    I was born in the deep south—Bakersfield, California. The first RV I ever saw had a bumper sticker that said, “Don’t Tailgate Me or I Will Flush.” This early impression of the RV/trailer crowd made me wonder, “Why do space aliens land in trailer parks?” Years later, I’m sitting here in my retrofitted Airstream trailer,…
