AUSB Honors Mandela

Antioch University Santa Barbara is honored to exhibit artist James Paul Brown’s iconic mixed-media portrait of the late Nelson Mandela, revered leader and human rights activist of South Africa.

Mandela’s profound commitment to social justice, peace, and equality resonates with Antioch’s historic commitment to provide students with a global perspective and the training to pursue social engagement for the common good. Brown’s painting captures the hope and indomitable yet gentle spirit embodied by Mandela.

As an artist, Brown is renowned for his ability to channel his subject’s presence into his rich, impressionist style – described by some as a hybrid between the vibrancy of Van Gogh and the dreaminess of Monet. Brown resides in Santa Barbara with his wife Juliet Rhode-Brown, Chair of AUSB’s Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology.

The painting is displayed inside the AUSB’s main lobby; the candle beneath signifies Mandela’s enduring legacy and impact across the globe. Visitors are welcome anytime during regular campus hours, Monday-Thursday, 8am-9pm, and Friday-Saturday, 8:15am-5:00pm. Please note: AUSB will close for winter break on Monday, December 23 and will reopen Thursday, January 2, 2014.
