Art glass collection of Betty Heil (1927-1911) given to Cabrillo College by the Heil Family

Betty was well known in the Santa Cruz arts community both as an artist and a patron. While she painted, sculpted, and worked with glass, her real enjoyment was talking with other artists, sharing in their work, and supporting local galleries. Her home was a rotating exhibit of the best of local arts. We thank the Heil Family and Tobin Keller for the opportunity to exhibit pieces of her collection.

You will have an opportunity to meet and talk with Child Soldiers from Uganda traveling the country to help spread awareness of the longest running conflict in northern Uganda that has displaced 1.8 million families—forcing children to walk throughout the night to avoid being captured and forced to fight in Kony’s rebel war. Invisible Children uses film, creativity and social action to end the use of child soldiers in Joseph Kony’s rebel war and restore Northern Uganda to peace and prosperity.
