Located at People's Park, the Isla Vista Love and Remembrance Garden captures the collective spirit of collaboration for which Isla Vista is known. The public art installation, in the form of a botanic landscape, meanders between IV's Peoples and Perfect Parks, dedicating a poetic space for contemplation and celebration in memory of the student lives tragically lost on May 23, 2014. The effort demonstrates the capacity for the IV and UCSB communities to come together and create a meaningful place for public commemoration and healing. The initial partnership, between project artist and creator, Jordan Killebrew and the Isla Vista Recreation and Park District (IVRPD) has since garnered the support from local business, public historians, librarians, and craftsmen as well as the UCSB Office of Student Life, Associated Students, the Panhellenic community and the faculty and students of the UCSB Departments of Art.
