TRIBUTE: American Riviera Award



ECOGNIZING her many contributions to the art of film over the years, and most recently, her work as Judy Garland in LD Entertainment and Roadside Attractions’ Judy, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival will present the American Riviera Award to Renée Zellweger on Thursday, January 16th, 8pm at the Arlington Theatre. “[Judy] She’s such a legend. But there’s so much to the human being as well,” shared Zellweger in an interview with The Guardian. “You want her to come across as big as she was, Renée Zellweger but also show the woman... Her intelligence, determination, tenacity, hope. She never gave that up, no matter the circumstances.” Featuring some of her best-known songs, Judy celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.” “Ms. Zellweger has always displayed a deep commitment and discipline in her performances which has always made me root for her and admire her deeply. In Judy - she adds a ferocity that solidifies her as one of the greatest actors of her time,” shared SBIFF Executive Director, Roger Durling. The American Riviera Award was established to recognize actors who have made a significant contribution to American Cinema.

Interview with Luke J. Swetland, President & CEO, Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History

Responding to the Climate Crisis HERE’S A FAIRLY LARGE (THOUGH INFORMAL) CONSENSUS AMONG LOCALS that the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History is one of Santa Barbara’s best Museums. After all, it has something for everyone! Inside there is history, Santa Barbara folklore, natural sciences, birds, bears (and other mammals), art, and on Stearns Wharf you can reach into a tank and touch a shark! Step outside into the Museum’s backyard and the exploration and fun continues. This range of activity and information (there’s even a planetarium show!) does not bely the fact that the Museum is also a serious member of the scientific community, a role they take seriously - thus their current tagline “Powered by Science. Inspired by Nature.” In our consideration of Santa Barbara’s response to the climate crisis and the ever changing environment, we placed the Museum in our first round of invitations to be part of our community coverage and we received a near immediate response. The Museum is committed enough to environmental stewardship in this time of climate crisis to have an official Statement on Climate Change. “As one of the leading scientific institutions on the Central Coast, the Museum’s job is to educate our community about the causes and consequences of the dynamic and dramatic changes we are witnessing in our climate both locally and globally. We know that our future survival depends on our willingness to embrace changes that can mitigate the damage caused by the many ways we have negatively impacted the environment we share with all living things,” writes Luke J. Swetland, President & CEO. He also agreed to answer our interview questions. VOICE: What did your group accomplish in the last year toward being an active steward of environmental health? Luke J. Swetland: Both the Museum and the Sea Center were certified as California Green Businesses at the highest – Innovator – level. We have installed 160 solar panels at the Sea Center which will supply half of the power used at the Sea Center. While a small facility, our energy use at the Sea Center is high because we must run the life support systems 24/7. VOICE: What is an immediate upcoming goal, which you will be working on? Swetland: We will be installing solar panels on the roof of our Collections and Research Center this summer to help offset the energy use required to maintain the constant environmental conditions required to care for our more than 3.5 million specimens. We are coordinating two free Community Conversations (town hall style events) with CEC, UCSB Bren School, SB Channelkeeper, and the SB Foundation. The first will be held Sunday, January 26th from 3 to 5pm in the Museum’s

Fleischmann Auditorium and will feature a number of experts reporting on the longterm environmental impacts on our watershed and the Santa Barbara Channel from the Thomas Fire ash fall and January 9 Debris Flow material being moved to the beaches under temporary emergency permits. VOICE: Is there a long term goal that is emerging as important for your organization?

Santa Barbara Armenians Celebrate

Armenian Genocide Resolution Approved By U.S. Congress

January 10, 2020

Room for Spacious Entertaining

Some of the local Armenian Community


By Mark M. Whitehurst, PhD / VOICE

LANDMARK RESOLUTION RECOGNIZING THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE was approved by the United States Congress on December 12th, confirming the killing of 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman Empire from 1915 to 1923. The Senate approved the legislation unanimously and the House of Representatives approved it 405-to-11 in an earlier vote; the resolution does not require President Trump’s signature. “I salute the U.S. Congress’ historic vote recognizing the Armenian Genocide. Resolution 296 is a bold step towards serving truth and historical #justice that also offers comfort to millions of descendants of the Armenian Genocide survivors,” commented Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, on Twitter. The year the genocide began in 1915, Henry Morgenthau, American Ambassador to Turkey made a plea for help for the U.S. government and philanthropists to initiate an international humanitarian campaign. That plea was approved by Congress in 1916 in the form of an agreement for “Near East Relief.” The effort saved over 130,000 orphans and about one million survivors of the Armenian Genocide. The assistance totaled $110 million (in current dollars about $1.25 billion). The Santa Barbara Armenian Community, with more than 250 members, is celebrating the formal recognition of the tragedy which caused millions of Armenians to leave their homeland. Currently there are about eleven million Armenians in the world with about 80,000 residing in California. “Armenians worldwide celebrate the long-awaited recognition of the persecution and genocide of our ancestors,” noted Anahid Papakhian, a Santa Barbara resident. The Armenian Community in Santa Barbara was established in 1933 and has held countless picnics, galas, and women’s groups for Armenian locals and for the public at large. The independent organization is run by all volunteers. In 1983, the Community erected a fountain in front of City Hall in dedication to the City of Santa Barbara. City of Santa Barbara Public Works Department will be finishing a restoration project in 2020. On behalf of all the volunteers, Ohan Arakelian commented, “We are thankful for the local cultural agencies, UCSB, the City of Santa Barbara, and its Public Works Department for their strong in-kind support of our organization over the years.” The passage of the Armenian Genocide Resolution raises awareness of the tragedy of genocide and the possibility of future resolutions recognizing other genocides. The Fountain dedicated by the Armenian The Senate Resolution 150 was cosponsored by Community in front of City Hall Senator Robert Menendez (D) New Jersey and Senator Ted Cruz (R) Texas. The House of Representatives passed Res 296 on October 29, 2019 by a vote of 405-11. Fortynine U.S. states have recognized the Armenian Genocide through resolution or proclamation, according to the Armenian National Committee of America. “Armenians have waited too long for recognition of the genocide from the United States and Turkey. Acknowledgement is one step toward prevention. We must never let these atrocities happen again!” added Papakhian. The Turkish government condemned the U.S. resolution and President Erdogan called on the Turkish Parliament to not respond in kind. “Seriously, worldwide this will put increased pressure on Turkey to admit what they did and ask for forgiveness, which is a key step for Armenians to give the forgiveness that their hearts desire and their Christian calling requires,” stated David Madajian, a Santa Barbara resident. The Near East Relief project later became the Near East Foundation, which continues to provide aid. The NEF is the oldest international non governmental organization in the world.

HERE IS PLENTY OF SPECULATION on the effects of killing Iran’s Quds Force General Qassem Suleimani. Of course the first question is how will Iran retaliate? But terrorist attacks by its proxies, such as by the Iraqi militias that were bombed days ago by the U.S., should be the least of our worries. More important is the effect on world oil prices and economic growth in general, since the only reason the U.S. economy is continuing to grow is the very low inflation coupled with very low, recession level interest rates. And that can’t be maintained if oil prices spike for some reason. Texas intermediate crude prices per barrel stayed in the $100 per barrel range from 2011 to 2015, per the FRED graph, before coming down to the $50-$60 range in 2015. It was a major reason economic growth hasn’t risen above two percent this decade. I say recession-level rates, since current interest rates were last this low during the Great Recession. The Federal Reserve had to lower interest rates three times last year since the manufacturing component has been shrinking for the past four months, according to the ISM’s Manufacturing survey.

We are skating on thin ice, economically speaking. The Fed had to lower interest rates when stock prices plunged in December 2018, because money was no longer cheap, and it raised fears of an oncoming recession. So the unique combination of low rates plus low inflation has kept the U.S. growing in the eleventh year of this recovery from the Great Recession, which is the longest post—WWII recovery on record. Past history has shown low inflation and interest rates cannot last forever. In fact, as the above FRD CPI inflation graph shows, the Federal Reserve has been more than proactive on keeping inflation at the two to 2.5 percent range since 1980, when it reached 12.5 percent because of soaring oil prices in the 1970s. Anyone remember the Arab oil embargo and long lines at gas stations when OPEC cut off oil supplies to the U.S.? The result was back-to-back recession in 1981 to 82, and another recession in 1991 during the Desert Storm invasion of Kuwait, just before the 9/11 Trade Center bombings. The question may not be skyrocketing oil prices, since the U.S. in now domestically producing more than seven million barrels per day. But economic growth is already slowing with the tariff wars that have cut foreign trading by almost 25 percent, the UK’s Brexit battle, and now a possible Middle East war. Iran has many ways to create more trouble. Then why has the U.S. killed Iran’s leading general and Iraqi militia commanders in the recent drone attacks? Reuters is reporting that Iran-backed militias had already been planning attacks on U.S. installations and civilians with advanced weaponry brought in from Iran. Whether the intelligence reports are true or not, a new Middle East war may have already begun.

UCSB Alum Returns to Discuss Success of Screenplay


ks c i P A M E CIN

OAH HARPSTER, a UCSB alumnus who co-wrote the screenplay for the recent Tom Hanks film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, will be back at his alma mater on Saturday, January 11th to answer questions after a screening of the film at 2pm in the Pollock Theatre. Harpster graduated with a BFA in acting in 1998. After he graduated, he founded his own company, which produced short plays and comedy sketches, and was then signed by a commercial agent in Los Angeles several years later. He then worked on an Emmy-winning Amazon web series called Transparent. Once that series was finished, Harpster went back to focusing on the Mister Rogers script, which had gained notoriety as one of the industry’s best unproduced screenplays. When the director of the film, Marielle Heller, asked him who he was Noah Harpster considering for the lead, Harpster said, “We’d like Tom Hanks, but let’s get realistic.” After a decade-long journey and multiple screenplay drafts, Harpster and his colleagues’ work culminated in the November release of the film.

After enjoying the mind-bending art at the cosmos exhibit, head over to the planetarium at the SBMNH to catch one of the shows that comes free with admission to the SBMA. Take an indepth tour of the night sky and learn about the constellations our ancestors created to help tell the stories of old. Zoom around the solar system and witness the awe-inspiring weather that occurs in our little neighborhood of the universe like the magnetic storms on the sun, the methane rain on Titan, and Jupiter’s 400-year-old hurricane that shows no signs of slowing. It will make you glad that you live on Earth! The planetarium also has less intense shows for small children and families looking to learn more about things like comets and the planets in our solar system. There is also a question-driven presentation where the planetarium’s astronomy presenter will answer questions during an interactive presentation. The final show, called Universe: User’s Guide, focuses on a different topic every month, so make sure to check out this month’s topic at www.sbnature.org/planetarium before your cosmic adventure begins! The SBMA is celebrated for the superb quality of its permanent collection. Its mission is to integrate art into the lives of people through internationally recognized exhibitions and special programs, as well as the thoughtful presentation of its permanent collection. www.sbma.net | www.sbnature.org

HE VAST EXPANSE OF THE UNIVERSE could never be entirely encapsulated by humans, but the perspective of the cosmos that Earth affords us allows both astronomers and artists alike to study and use imagination to bring celestial objects that seem insurmountably far away a little bit closer. That is exactly the kind of work currently on display at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s Observable Universe: Visualizing the Cosmos in Art, curated by Michelle West. With the artistic interpretation of the nature and science of the universe for a theme, the exhibition delves into a wide range of artistic representations of the cosmos that coincide with the “Space Age” of the last half century. “The exhibit came about because we were thinking about the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and the ways the early space race ties into current practices for artists,” West shared. “We also wanted to look at the role that the act of observation plays in both astronomy and art. This cosmos exhibit is about representing something that exists through handmade art and being filtered through the human experience.” During a special promotion between the SBMA and the Santa

Barbara Museum of Natural History from January 15th to February 16th, buying admission to the exhibit will also get you a free planetarium show at the Gladwin Planetarium, or, when showing a planetarium ticket at the SBMA will get you free admission there. The cosmos exhibit draws primarily from the museum’s permanent collection and is supplemented by loans from other area collections. Inspiration for the pieces in the exhibition ranges from early fascinations with space travel to the philosophical question of humankind’s place in the universe. All of the featured works reflect an enduring captivation with outer space and the mesmerizing imagery the limitless cosmos inspires. A featured artist is Russell Crotty, a native Californian and amateur astronomer, who spoke at the exhibition’s opening about his interest in the artistic interpretation of the science of the universe. Using ballpoint pen as his medium of choice, Crotty is renowned for his distinctive drawings on paper-coated, suspended globes and within large-scale books. His artwork aims to engage astronomy, landscape, mapping, surfing, coastal studies, and an idiosyncratic commentary on natural and humanmade worlds. Crotty incorporates bio-resin, collage, and other non-traditional materials as a means of exploring new ideas that investigate and expand the notion of “works on paper.” Crotty’s Nightfall Matilija Wilderness, a fiberglass sphere embossed with ink and watercolor on paper, is one of the main fixtures of the exhibit at the SBMA. Another featured artist is L.A.-based artist and astrophysics enthusiast Lia Halloran, who often incorporates scientific principles and new media technologies into her practice. Her pieces at the exhibit, two cyanotype prints on paper entitled The Magellanic Cloud, after Henrietta Swan Leavitt, pays long-overdue homage to the contributions of female astronomers since antiquity. The Magellanic Cloud led Henrietta Swan Leavitt to discover a method for measuring the distance between celestial bodies, a discovery that would later allow Edwin Hubble to prove that the universe is expanding. To create the cyanotypes, Halloran painted representations of celestial bodies onto transparent film and laid the film over photosensitive paper which was then exposed to direct sunlight. The result was two stunning, large maps of the cosmos that were created using the power of our very own star.

Scott Deardorff, retiring commodore


January 10, 2020

By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE

by the American Alliance of Museums. The first celebratory event took place on Thursday, January 9th presenting the Museum’s refurbished collections facility, renamed in honor of one of SBMM’s founders. Don Barthelmess, SBMM Board President, and Greg Gorga, Executive Director, welcomed guests and well wishers to Thursday’s program officially opening the celebratory year. The main event, the dedication of The Kieding Collections Chandlery was presented to an unsuspecting Bob Kieding surrounded by family and friends, with accolades following. Emily Falke, Deputy Director and Curator, spoke of her first days at SBMM. “If I were to attribute my longevity here at the Museum to anyone it would be Bob Kieding. He was my mentor, my guiding light, and my cheerleader. Without his help, his sense of history, and his vision I wouldn’t be standing here talking to you today.” Her heartfelt sentiments were followed by George ‘Geoie’ Writer who spoke of his longtime friendship with Kieding and their common interests over the years. In closing, Executive Director Gorga added his own thanks. “Without Bob’s coordination, our wonderful museum would not have become the highly rated, solid institution that it is today. Thank you, Bob, for everything!” Looking forward to reporting more about activities on and around the waterfront in the next months. So, for right now Happy New Year to you and I hope to see you all down at the harbor. Spring is just around the corner, so stay tuned here. Sigrid Toye volunteers for the Breakwater Flag Project. She is on the board of directors of the Maritime Museum and participates in Yacht Club activities. An educational/behavior therapist, Sigrid holds a Ph.D in clinical psychology. She loves all things creative, including her two grown children who are working artists. Send Harbor tips to: Itssigrid@gmail.com

APPY NEW YEAR TO ALL! We’re off and running down at the harbor and waterfront for another big year. At the stroke of midnight the Santa Barbara Yacht Club’s yearly New Year’s bash rang in the passing of the helm from 2019 Commodore Scott Deardorff to Garry Pawlitski, the 2020 Commodore. The primo parking spot exclusively designated for the Yacht Club’s Commodore was vacated for newly minted Commodore Pawlitski - with the assistance of the traditional tow truck. Deardorff (possibly hoping to circumvent the tow-away) arrived for the evening on a basketed bicycle. But … not so fast, Scott! That’s right, retiring Commodore Deardorff and his baby blue beach cruiser were summarily towed nonetheless, making room for incoming Commodore Pawlitski’s car. Deardroff, atop the tow, waved bye-bye to a bevy of club members accompanied by grateful applause in appreciation for a job well done. The Really Big News for 2020 is that our Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, situated in the heart of the harbor, is celebrating its 20th Anniversary Year! It’s hard to believe that the Museum, a virtual child in the museum world, has become one of America’s ten top maritime museums substantiated by Marina Life Magazine. The Maritime Museum opened its doors on July 29th, 2000 with the unique mission to present and interpret the rich and diverse maritime history of the Santa Barbara Channel. Founded by a group of fishermen, divers, and sailors who are a part of this exciting history, the Museum was envisioned as a place where the public could be exposed to maritime culture along Opening of the Santa Barbara Maritime with important Museum in 2000 environmental issues and history without leaving the harbor. Through various and multiple learning opportunities, SBMM is a repository for the Santa Bob Kieding Barbara Channel, the abundant marine life that calls these waters home, and for the maritime environment past, present, and future. In addition, the Museum serves to inform the public about the people who have visited and inhabited this area for 13,000 years, who have made their living in and on its waters, and who enjoy its recreational activities. SBMM centers its stories and messages on interactive and hands-on learning opportunities for all ages to delve into the area’s history and culture. For example, all of SBMM’s lectures involve question and answer periods, and art exhibits allow interaction with the artists. The Museum’s children’s programs encourage the curiosity of children through the use of interactive exhibits and experiential learning activities, such as an overnight experience reenacting the life of an 1830s sailor, onboard research on marine life, and building lighthouses and buoys at Family and Science Nights. And, of course, it’s ‘The home of the Point Conception First Order Fresnel Lens.’ To celebrate its 20th anniversary, SBMM has planned a busy year and invites the entire community to help celebrate and share memories and stories of the last 20 years. Festivities began at the beginning of this year with the announcement of SBMM’s recognition by the Santa Barbara Chamber of Commerce as its Nonprofit of the Year for 2020 and its application for accreditation Bob Kieding
