A new art exhibition of works by Lara Favaretto at the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara features car wash brushes -- the massive, colorful cylinders that smother your vehicle with soap as you cruise through. Add some see confetti flying in the air, and you’ve got the first show curated by the museum’s new executive director and chief curator.
