UCSB Arts & Lectures to present

Brian Greene ~ Until the End of Time: Mind, Matter, and Our Search for Meaning in an Evolving Universe

EADING A CAPTIVATING EXPLORATION OF DEEP TIME AND HUMANITY’S SEARCH FOR PURPOSE, UCSB Arts & Lectures will present Brian Greene, worldrenowned theoretical physicist and bestselling author of The Elegant Universe, in his public lecture, Until the End of Time: Mind, Matter, and Our Search for Meaning in an Evolving Universe, on Monday, March 9th at 7:30pm at The Granada Theatre. On the cosmic timeline, our human era is spectacular but fleeting. Someday, we know, we will all die. And, we know, so too will the universe itself. In Greene’s breathtaking new exploration of the cosmos and our quest to understand it – Until the End of Time – Greene takes us on a journey across time, from our most refined understanding of the universe’s beginning to the closest science can take us to the very end. In his public lecture, he will explore how life and mind emerged from the initial chaos and how our minds, in coming to understand their own impermanence, seek in different ways to give meaning to experience: in story, myth, religion, creative expression, science, and the quest for truth and our longing for the timeless, or the eternal. “The context provided by the cosmological narrative frees us fully to develop our own, deeply, and thoroughly subjective reasons for being,” he shared in a Guardian interview about his new book. Greene is one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists and a brilliant, entertaining communicator of cutting-edge scientific concepts. He is a Professor of Physics and of Mathematics at Columbia University and is currently director of Columbia University’s Center for Theoretical Physics. He is also the author of three acclaimed books – The Elegant Universe, The Fabric of the Cosmos, and The Hidden Reality – which have collectively sold more than two million copies, been translated into more than 40 languages, and spent 65 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. His books are also the basis of two Emmy and Peabody Award-winning NOVA miniseries, both of which Greene hosted. His new book, Until the End of Time: Mind, Matter, and Our Search for Meaning in an Evolving Universe, was published on February 18th. Greene’s illustrated novella Icarus at the Edge of Time, adapted for live symphonic presentation with an original score by Philip Glass, premiered at Lincoln Center and has been performed more

than 50 times worldwide. Greene’s work for the stage, Light Falls, traces Einstein’s discovery of General Relativity and features an original score by House of Cards composer Jeff Beal and visual design by the Tony Award winning team from 59 Productions. Together with journalist Tracy Day, Greene is the co-founder of The World Science Festival, which brings cutting edge science programming to broad audiences. The Festival’s live flagship events, in New York and Australia, have reached an audience of more than two million, and more than 50 million have experienced the Festival’s offerings online. A Harvard graduate and a Rhodes Scholar, Greene is a frequent television guest, joining Stephen Colbert eight times and playing himself in an episode of The Big Bang Theory. He has also had cameo roles in a number of Hollywood films including Frequency, Maze, and The Last Mimzy. Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Chaucer’s Books. Brian Greene is presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures in association with the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at UCSB and through the generosity of Dorothy Largay & Wayne Rosing. The Natalie Orfalea Foundation & Lou Buglioli are Community Partners and SAGE Publishing is Corporate Sponsor of the 2019-20 UCSB Arts & Lectures season. Photo courtesy of UCSB Arts & Lectures

His job was to simply deliver the mail. But when the poor and uneducated Mario meets Chilean exile and poet, Pablo Neruda, his life is forever changed. Set in the 1950s on a small island off the coast of Italy, Catán’s stunning score soars against a backdrop of political and spiritual conflict. Kostis Protopapas will conduct and Crystal Manich will direct. For tickets ($19-$136) visit www.lobero.org

Su trabajo era simplemente entregar el correo. Pero cuando el pobre y sin educación Mario se encuentra con el exilio y poeta chileno, Pablo Neruda, su vida cambia para siempre. Ambientada en la década de 1950 en una pequeña isla frente a la costa de Italia, la impresionante partitura musical de Catán se dispara en un contexto de conflicto político y espiritual. Kostis Protopapas es el conductor y Crystal Manich la directora. Para boletos ($19-$136) visita www.lobero.org

encourage, support, and uplift their voices. I also hope that Her Festival brings up the important conversation of equality, and how although we have made it so far, we still can’t stop fighting.” The journey to putting on Her Festival was not straightforward, and yet, despite the pitfalls, sleepless nights, and unsurmountable pressure, the young trio said it has been completely worth it. “I had no idea how much work it was going to be. I don’t think any of us did. There were countless obstacles that we had to overcome, and many of them seemed nearly impossible at the time,” Mia related. Similarly, Walman-Randall exclaimed,“Our speakers have believed in us and our vision from the beginning, even when we were unsure of ourselves. I hope our attendees will walk away with a similar sense of empowerment. I want young girls to know that their ideas matter and that they can make change.” Supporting one another and having their eye on the same goal, Geneva, Cami, and Mia exemplify the epitome of leadership and perseverance standing behind Voices of the Community - embracing challenges, working diligently together, and pushing towards a goal. “I am so grateful we are around to support each other. There is no way one of us could have done it by ourselves,” Cami concluded. Her Festival is sure to be a memorable and lasting event, leaving impacts on the lives of its participants. As stated by the trio of founders, “This is not just our festival: it belongs to all of them. Her Festival is empowerment, a celebration; it is a day for Her.” Girsh Park is located at 7050 Phelps Rd, Goleta.

Harbor VOICE By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE


FTER BEING OUT OF TOWN FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS, during my first foray through the Harbor’s main entrance I discovered that several barriers blocked my way! Although parking lots to the left and right were completely open, the area in the direction of the Yacht Club parking lot was the home of several massive backhoes with huge arms that looked like something George Lucas might have dreamed up for one of the early Star Wars movies. On the East side of the lot, a huge blue bin was perched, poised for who knows what? The fact that some (or all) of this was behind a newly erected chain link fence suggested that whatever was going on might be there for a while. Holy smokes! What has been going on here at the harbor during my few short days away? The first challenge was to get past the guard, a few red cones, and a sign informing intruders that that half of the parking lot was available only to construction workers, commercial vehicles, access to the City pier, and those desperately seeking the Yacht Club parking lot. After being allowed passage, I headed straight up the stairs to the Waterfront Department to speak with Karl Treiberg, Waterfront Department Facilities Manager, who filled me in on the goings-on. “As you can see this is a big project,” Treiberg confirmed. “The underground storage tanks for the fuel dock have to be replaced, a project that will most likely take anywhere from eight to ten weeks, with restricted access during that time.” Examples of simlar tanks The replacement of the tanks, installed in 1963, has nothing to do with their viability, but with a California law that mandates replacing the existing four 10,000 gallon tanks with two 20,000 gallon containers that are double walled (as opposed to the present single walled smaller tanks). The project is being undertaken by Santa Barbara Fuel Dock Inc. with oversight by the Santa Barbara County Public Heath Department, assisted by regional and

County quality control agencies. “With construction underway, all sorts of traffic will be competing for the same areas. This will include delivery trucks, staging platforms, offloading goods, plus the normal traffic seeking the limited parking within and around the construction zones,” Treiberg acknowledged. Visitors are encouraged to take advantage of the larger and completely available Harbor Main and Harbor West parking lots to access the shops, restaurants, and the Maritime Museum along the harbor walkway. Of course, all businesses and activities will be open during construction. The use of portable fencing, trench plates, and night time work should help minimize disruptions. Funding for this extensive project was obtained by Santa Barbara Fuel Dock Inc. without the use of Waterfront Department funds or tax dollars. As a note of thanks in advance of the project’s completion, Treiberg added, “The Waterfront Department as well as its tenants appreciate the patience of the Santa Barbara community and its visitors during this challenging, but environmentally necessary, project.” The project has been underway for a week and I’m told the work will be completed as quickly as is humanly possible. Speaking for myself, I’m happy to be back on my beat at Santa Barbara’s picturesque waterfront, regardless of the temporary inconvenience of a much needed upgrade. Stay tuned for the latest news and the upcoming pageantry of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club’s Opening Day on the first weekend of March. Get ready … Spring is just around the corner! 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.

The Daisy

AY THE WORDS “Turkish Delight” and most Americans think of CS Lewis’s fictional tale, Chronicles of Narnia — the decadent dessert that seduces the naughty boy who is under the sugary spell of the Winter Witch. “But Turkish Delight is real!” exclaimed Sercan, family member and Manager of Lokum. “We suggest people come here and enjoy free samples of Turkish delight— to see just how real, and delicious it is.” Rose, Mint, Pistachio, Hazelnut... these are some of the traditional ingredients that grace the gooey confection that is perfectly companioned with the thick, rich, traditional Turkish coffee. The store is next to the family’s long established Turkish Seven Hills import store. “We just opened, but this is not a Pop-Up! Our family’s dream of bringing Turkish Delicacies to Santa Barbara has been twenty five years in the making. We are looking to be here ten years or more.” 805-324-3067


UPER FRESH INGREDIENTS. Unique Mediterranean flavors. Unique local produce. The Daisy, a new restaurant on State Street is blossoming into a favorite for health-conscious locals and tourists with gourmet tastes, like Arlene Sarner and Gail Singer — filmmakers from Toronto and LA, who raved about the House-Smoked Brisket Banh Mi sandwich: “So delicious! and French fries so fresh with an olive oil dip; fresh Little Gems salad, with little oranges, fennel and radish! And the other night, the best Spare Ribs ever!” It’s no wonder they are impressed, explained Serverextraordinaire Nick, “Everything here is made daily from scratch.” This freshness is the succulent dream of owners Dominic Shiach and Carmen Deforest, a married couple offering a taste of the Garden of Eden in Santa Barbara! 805.845.0188 • www.thedaisyrestaurant.com

¡VAMOS A BAILAR! OR LET’S DANCE! in English has been selected as this year’s Old Spanish Days Fiesta theme by El Presidente Erik Davis. Each year, the Presidente of Fiesta chooses a theme that will set the tone for the coming year. Davis was inspired by the way dance is so deeply connected to all aspects of Fiesta. “For me, dance embodies the joy, emotion, and true spirit of Fiesta,” El Presidente Davis explained. “The amazing dancing you will see throughout the Fiesta season honors our history, captures our traditions, and celebrates our Santa Barbara story. My hope is that you will join us in the dance of Old Spanish Days.” Celebrated since 1924, Fiesta is unique among festivals in that it is run by a volunteer Board of Directors and supported by one full-time staff member. The Board of Directors oversee all of the volunteer committees that support 19 official Old Spanish Days events and activities in 14 venues city-wide. Fiesta 2020 will be held August 5th through 9th. Leading up to the festivities, the next Fiesta event is the Spirit of Fiesta Auditions, where the 2020 Spirit of Fiesta and Junior Spirit of Fiesta will be chosen live in front of an audience. The auditions are scheduled for Saturday, April 18th from 12 to 4:30pm at La Cumbre Jr. High, followed by The Los Artistas reception at The Carriage and Western Art Museum.



¡VAMOS A BAILAR! ha sido seleccionado como el tema de las fiestas Old Spanish Days de este año por El Presidente Erik Davis. Cada año, el Presidente de Fiesta elige un tema que marcará el tono para el próximo año. Davis se inspiró en la forma en que el baile está tan profundamente conectado con todos los aspectos de Fiesta. “Para mí, el baile encarna la alegría, la emoción y el verdadero espíritu de Fiesta,” explicó El Presidente Davis. “Los bailes increíbles que verás durante la temporada de Fiesta honra nuestra historia, captura nuestras tradiciones y celebra nuestra historia de Santa Bárbara. Espero que te unas a nosotros en el baile de Old Spanish Days.” Celebrado desde 1924, Fiesta es único entre los festivales, ya que está dirigido por una Junta Directiva de voluntarios y cuenta con el apoyo de un miembro del personal de tiempo completo. La Junta Directiva supervisa todos los comités de voluntarios que apoyan 19 eventos y actividades oficiales de Old Spanish Days en 14 lugares de toda la ciudad. Fiesta 2020 se llevará a cabo del 5 al 9 de agosto. Antes de las festividades, el próximo evento de Fiesta son las Audiciones del Espíritu de Fiesta, donde el Espíritu de Fiesta 2020 y el Espíritu de Fiesta Infantil serán elegidos en vivo frente a una audiencia. Las audiciones están programadas para el sábado, 18 de abril de 12 a 4:30pm en La Cumbre Jr. High, seguido de la recepción de Los Artistas en The Carriage y Western Art Museum.

UCTIONS ARE MENTIONED in this column quite often. I do look at a strange assortment of them for unusual items for my collections, or research on books, or items for friend's hobbies or collections. And I do go through a lot of junk, but suddenly in the midst of it might just appear an unexpected treasure. It's always interesting what people buy and what they pay for it. Some of the most expensive items sold, great jewels, paintings etc. do go to Qatar. And the Chinese have been great buyers in the last few years. For years, the Chinese would not buy Chinese robes or other dead people's clothes as they put it. But until the new illness disaster, they were spending the highest prices for them. One high priced item several years ago was Queen Victoria's underpants, or bloomers as they called them. They went for 1000 English pounds. They measured 44 inches around the waist and were referred to as "open drawers" style. You can figure that one out. The most expensive auction item for a living artist sold last year was Jeff Koons’ creation - a gigantic balloon type sculpture such as he's known for. It sold for $91.1 milllion. A current item up for sale that caught my attention and brought back memories is a rare alligator skin travel trunk. The starting bid on it is $30,000. We know how expensive fine alligator purses are, so this is no surprise. Normally priced trunks like this are what we used to pack for trips overseas. So handy. There is a section for evening gowns to hang properly on hangers. And drawers where everything can be stored neatly and accessible. But one in green alligator is indeed something special. Some very unusual shoes show up amidst all the sneakers. Then I came upon a 1900s surgical air compressor. Shoes I understand. That I don't. In the toy department I found a miniature Delft Dutch blue tin washing machine with a wringer. I had a little stove that worked in my playhouse when I was young, but no washing machines. Another item that caught my eye was a vintage Dazey Red Top or Football butter churner that could handle four quarts. It is estimated at $70. Butter churners of all types turn up at auction, but this was a new one to me! One item I was tempted to bid on was a metal sign, "Beware of…." then, "Well Just Beware.” Kitchen items from the past that have shown up include a large wooden apple pealer from the 1800s, and a cherry seed pitter that was of a size that could handle avocados instead of little cherries! What really appealed to me, and I did bid on, had nothing to do with the kitchen. It was an 18th century Barrister's (British lawyer) powdered wig in its original Tole case. For cigar smokers who might make their own, although I remember my father preferred to let the Cubans do that for him, is a later 1800's wooden ten section cigar mold by Miller, DuBrul & Peters Mfg. Company. And milk bottles galore are up for sale. Those glass bottles that used to be at the back door every morning that were rounded on the top where the cream settled bring particularly high prices, as do old Coca Cola bottles. And if they come in a crate, they bring even higher prices. Empty bottles can bring surprising prices. I sold a 1966 empty Chateau LaFite Rothschild wine bottle out of curiosity for what it would bring. A Chinese buyer paid $180 for it. I have a feeling it landed across the ocean filled with cheap plum wine or something and he made real money on it. So careful what you toss out. It may be valuable to someone. Beverley Jackson moved to SB in 1963 from Los Angeles. She wrote a social column for the SB News-Press from 1968-1992. She also wrote the award winning book Splendid Slippers on Chinese footbinding and five other books on China. She latest book is Dolls of Spain. Jackson is avid doll collector and a collector of interesting people. She is also now seriously making and exhibiting pine needle baskets and collage.

Poetic VOICE

Dylan Krieger Dangerous, Thrilling Songbird

Metamortuary (Nine Mile Books, 2020) what we don’t say is an empty bear trap snapping at the snow


Y WORDS WILL FAIL HER WORDS. All those who write about Dylan Krieger, an unmythological Veronica Lake of Baton Rouge, seem to lose their minds and honk like the love children of Gertrude Stein and Allen Ginsberg— “expert assassin with the messianic fervor of deconstructed goth-girl, rogue priestess, ingenious, electric, visceral, Dylan Krieger relentless.” She posts—“Also me: shallow bimbo.” Thomas Simmons in his New York Times book review of her debut collection, Giving Godhead (Delete Press), sobered up long enough to write—“The best collection of poetry to appear in English in 2017, easily among the most inventive and successful performative works to appear in living memory.” Of her second book, Dreamland Trash (Saint Julian, 2018), he wrote— “Opposite of the sophomore slump.” Uncontainable, she has followed with No Ledge Left to Love (Ping Pong, 2018), and prose poems, The Mother Wart (Vegetarian Alcoholic, 2019). She is working on a philosophical treatise, The Unexamined Death Is Still Worth Dying. Her editor at Nine Mile Books says—“She makes me a little scared to see what she pens next.” The 49 poems of Metamortuary reveal in four parts—Dangerous Meat, Raw War, Quiet Catastrophes, and Eternal EndTimes. She sets out with a quote from the mighty Adrienne Rich—“The moment of change is the only poem.” The book seems to be her own unhinged Ovid— Metamorphoses—among myriad other manifestations including a wild-ride ode to controversial body performance artist Saint-Orlan— orlan or what little lamb electrified by elective procedures jigsaw muzzle mosaic nymph myth

venus eruropa mona lisa who is your face today? kept wide awake on the operating table she reads the world aloud like a greeting card something to be poked and pressed until the flesh falls out squeamish? me? perhaps but what arrests is agency, the choice to sheer herself to canonize a patchwork mess cooing hypnotically in french, la la lavinia what works of art does the disfigured damsel harbor? with pilfered hands philomela’s plucked tongue to whose surprise is it her masterpiece is a performance pantomimed in blood her busted lip, cartoonish horns a thorn in the side of the porn-fueled implant industry corseted morgue botched conformity saint orlan, pray for us with your cruella-may-care glitter add-ons, two-toned hair feed me the anxious sacraments of your pitchfork propaganda stare suture-eyed into the camera blow the scalpel a sticky kiss drop your lips right where you want them whisper amen and mean a woman shedding skins

From alien within i dream i’m leaning on a crutch i’ve hewn myself from all my limbs won’t let me touch

Krieger has degrees in English and Philosophy from Notre Dame, and a MFA Louisiana State. The history of western culture, industrial revolution, internet madness, unfettered eroticism, flowers in her soul’s vision and summons language. Read silently, terribly beautiful information-thistles spike. Read aloud, you’re a drummer—lyrical Jack DeJohnette, cool Shadow Wilson, madly-inspired Ginger Baker. I’m shy, once agreeing to meet the writer Laura Hope-Gill for the first time at an erotic slam poetry contest in Asheville, I fled in horror after ten minutes. She saw me leave and jog-followed but sprained her ankle, watched me flee to my hostel from her sidewalk sprawl. We have yet to meet

and therein autobiography. As with Amy King, who burst onto these pages with The Missing Museum (2016)—“gynocentric gnostic goddess”— it’s my duty here to bring the new and mighty when their genius overwhelms, wrestles me to the ground. It’s said of Krieger —“Emily Dickinson on adderall.” And in her large mind glows Sappho, Adrienne Rich, Anne Sexton, Anne Waldman, Céline, shading an entirely unique voice— From psycho dealing we have liftoff are you experienced? is this the misfit mitzvah? the what-it’s-like-ness of consciousness? sink all your wisdom to the bottom of the river the system will keep its secrets the machine will keep on making meaning with or without your acid ego with or without an inoperable theory of everything this trip is getting heady, man pass the comedown smokestack the one-eyed pigeons in the subway are putting down pulsating roots under manhattan the fabric of reality is unraveling yet here we sit undercooked crumpets bystanders at a hanging pretending the bones of the universe aren’t still motion sick from their clanging.

Housing Market (Still) Alive and Well

By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE


LL IS STILL WELL WITH RESIDENTIAL HOUSING into this new year. Both housing starts and permits exceeded predictions, with starts now at 1.57 annual units, and permits at a 13year high of 1.551 million units. Why? Interest rates are plunging to now lows with what looks like a coronavirus pandemic that now effects at least 30 countries, including new cases in S. Korea and Italy. And there are fears it will spread further into Europe and the EU with its open borders. As of Thursday, there are 60 cases

of COVID-19 in the U.S., including 45 people who were repatriated from the Diamond Princess and from Wuhan, China, the city that first detected the virus in December. Six people are counted as recovered in the U.S. Worldwide, there are now 82,549 cases of COVID-19, at least 2,810 deaths. About 33,252 people, primarily in China’s Hubei Province, have recovered, according to the latest figures. The DOW Jones has fallen more than 2,000 points and the ten-year benchmark Treasury yield has dropped more than 20 basis points from its recently stabilized yield to 1.30 percent as investors flee to safe-haven bonds to protect themselves. This is causing mortgage rates to fall to new lows, as well. Conforming mortgage 30-year fixed rates for those with the best credit and incomes, and with all closing costs paid by the lender, have fallen as low as 3.25 percent, and the super-conforming rate to 3.375 percent, which I have never seen in my 30 plus years as a Mortgage Banker. But won’t a possible pandemic slow housing sales? Not according to the Conference Board’s Index of Leading Economic Indicators (LEI) that has a good record of predicting economic activity six months ahead. The Conference Board Leading Economic Index® (LEI) for the U.S. increased 0.8 percent in January to 112.1 (2016 = 100), following a 0.3 percent decline in December and a 0.1 percent increase in November.


CASA Santa Barbara, Inc. • www.VoiceSB.com

“The strong pickup in the January U.S. LEI was driven by a sharp drop in initial unemployment insurance claims, increasing housing permits, consumers’ outlook on the economy and financial indicators,” said Ataman Ozyildirim, Senior Director of Economic Research at The Conference Board. “The LEI’s six-month growth rate has returned to positive territory, suggesting that the current economic expansion – at about two percent – will continue through early 2020. (But) While weakness in manufacturing appears to show signs of softening, the COVID-19 outbreak may impact manufacturing supply chains in the U.S. in the coming months.” So even the Conference Board is hedging its predictions at bit. But manufacturing is just ten percent of the U.S. economy these days, so who knows how much such a burgeoning pandemic will affect the U.S., in particular? We do know that interest rates are plunging to new, historic lows, however. And even the Federal Reserve may be poised to lower their short term interest rates, should the economy show more signs of slowing. And all of this prospective residential construction is underpinned by the urgent need to supply more housing – so much so that it has jump-started a new YIMBY (Yes In My Backyard) movement to build more affordable housing near transportation hubs and city centers. We may never have a better time to provide more housing for a growing population. It also signals the demise of suburban sprawl, as we know it. The missing piece in this effort seems to be upgrading transportation networks, as I said last week, which need to be improved to better connect where we live to where we must work, if we want to solve our very serious housing shortage.

Project is an example of a bold, costeffective, expedient, and dignified solution. Santa Barbara recently celebrated the opening of Johnson Court, a group of 16 studio apartments for veterans. While this development is a step in the right direction, the project cost $5.8 million dollars, and was only possible through the generosity of the Johnson family, who donated the land. $5.8 million dollars for 16 studios is over $362,000 per studio unit. While this may sound reasonable by Santa Barbara standards, it is a ridiculously high price. We need much, much more.

Student Voices from SBCC Art Department at SB City Hall Gallery


By Michelle Tahan | VOICE

DIVERSE SELECTION OF NEXT GENERATION ARTISTIC TALENT from the Santa Barbara City College art department will provide viewers with an inside glimpse into the creative minds of young artists and the educational processes of developing their craft. SBCC Atkinson Gallery and the Foundation for Santa Barbara City College are partnering with the City of Santa Barbara to showcase Student Voices from the Santa Barbara City College Art Department, an exhibition of top student artwork. The opening reception will be held during 1st Thursday, Dowtown’s Art and monthly Cultural Night out Art Walk between 5 and 7pm on Thursday, March 5th. “I am delighted to have our students’ artwork on display at City Hall, giving our local community an opportunity to see the physical results of our first-rate art program, while offering a peek behind the process of art education and the meditations of emergent creative minds. This exhibition has been a thoroughly rewarding and inspiring dialogue between art, education, and civic engagement,” shared John Connelly, Director of Atkinson Gallery. From paper, painting, and sculpture, to ceramics, the exhibition highlights a wide range of media, carefully hand-picked by the Art Department and Connelly himself. “The works in the show are quite diverse and vary from colorful to monochromatic and from abstract to representational. They are authentic, personal, poetic, and bold,” Connelly added. The Art Department’s focus is on developing their students’ core foundations in art, challenging students’ preconceived notions in order to develop their own observations and problem solving. According to Connelly, the students’ work clearly emanates this level of individuality and artistic awareness. “Not only does this show at City Hall Gallery reveal the remarkable skills and creativity of Santa Barbara City College art students, but it also celebrates the extremely accomplished art faculty and teachers at City College,” related Julia Rutherford Daly, Curator of Santa Barbara County Office of Arts and Culture. “Many of these instructors are also active working artists with varied and skilled practices. We are fortunate to have such extraordinary educators and artists who live and work in Santa Barbara.” Intersecting through public art, education, and government, students have the opportunity to share their artistic talents through rewarding dialogue and engagement with the Santa Barbara community. For the community, this exhibit will provide a peek into the next generation of artists that will shape the future, with the help of lessons and education from impeccable faculty members that helped www.sbac.ca.gov shape their creative techniques and visions.

HE ENVIRONMENTAL DEFENSE CENTER RECENTLY ADDED THREE NEW STAFF MEMBERS to replace departing employees. They include new staff attorney Elizabeth Fisher, office manager and event coordinator Daniel Elkin, and development coordinator, Jessica Diaz. The organization has also created a new leadership position and promoted Betsy Weber, its longtime communications director, to take on the position of assistant director. The transitions come at a critical time for the nonprofit public interest law firm with growing public awareness of the urgency of global warming, a hostile federal administration, an empowered oil industry, and a significant load of climaterelated cases. Elizabeth Fisher brings extensive experience in environmental law and in overseeing complex and diverse caseloads with the Kern County Superior Court and Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. She has also served as the assistant solicitor general for the State of North Carolina and has litigated clean water act enforcement and other environmental cases with a private public-interest firm.

Jessica Diaz brings financial experience and cultivated skills in database management and event planning to support the EDC’s mission.

SB Teen Wins National Video Contest



Contemporary American Landscapes 517 Laguna Street, Santa Barbara, CA 805 962-5588 www.artlacuna.com Marcia Burtt, Lifting Fog, acrylic, 24x18 in.


ICHAELA OH, WHO WAS SELECTED BY AMERICAN RIVIERA BANK to move on to the national level of the American Bankers Association’s “Lights, Camera, Save!” teen savings video contest, has won first place overall in the nation for her video submission. With her win, she takes home a cash prize of $5,000 to fund her savings goal, and proves there really is much to gain by saving! The video contest encouraged teens aged 13 to 18 to create an educational video showing how to save and use money wisely in a way that was appealing to other teenagers. Teens submitted videos to their local participating banks, which were tasked with promoting a local winner to go on to the national level. The national winners were then selected by a panel of five judges composed of leaders from the finance and financial education sectors. Oh’s video will be featured on the program’s YouTube channel and will become part of a national campaign to make sound money management relevant to teenagers. Her school will also benefit as it will receive a scholarship for a teacher to attend the Jump$tart National Educator Conference, where they will gain information and tools needed to provide financial education and literacy in their classrooms.
