SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

The Contemporary Arts Forum has been given a new look and a new name.  It will now be called the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara.

The Board of Trustees says the change is backed by a $3.5 million plan funded by the James Irvine Foundation.

The museum is located on the second floor of the Paseo Nuevo Mall across from the Center Stage Theater.
