Sowing the Seeds of Success

O

By Jennifer Zacharias, Special to VOICE

N FIRST GLANCE SARA ROTMAN AND NATE DIAZ SEEM AN UNLIKELY COUPLE TO BE PIONEERS in the brave new world of commercial cannabis farming. She’s a former branding and advertising executive with a lot of New York still running through her veins. He, on the other hand, is a lifelong surfer and south coast resident who loves to build things with his hands. Together they’re the husband and wife duo behind Busy Bee’s Organics, one of the largest, most successful commercial cannabis farms in America. They agreed to talk with VOICE about their latest side-project, developing agritoursim offerings built around the combination of fine cannabis, fine wines, and great food, all in a beautiful location. Thanks for taking the time to explain agritourism to us. What is your vision for this new business?

Here in Santa Barbara we see it like this: A tourist checks into a local hotel and then is picked up to tour a farm like ours. They see how cannabis really grows and we teach them about the connection between our soils and climate and the end products. Then they go to a dispensary in Lompoc where they can actually buy locally grown cannabis. Next stop, the tasting rooms of some of our gorgeous local wineries. For both wine and cannabis it’s all about the terroir and coaxing the best expression of the plant we nurture. I always enjoy talking with experienced vintners as our process is so similar and consumers see that too - it’s both surprising and completely natural once you spend time with both types of growers. The visitors taste a flight of local wines and then are off to one of our amazing restaurants like Industrial Eats to sample local farm-to-table food and wines. What could be better?

That sounds great. Sara & Nate: Our pleasure. First, while we’re Why hasn’t it happened yet? Sara Rotman and Nate Diaz working to be the first in this area, we’re hardly the of Busy Bee’s Organics Sara & Nate: Well, nothing is simple when inventors of the idea of cannabis-based agritourism. cannabis and wine are involved. Both are heavily regulated Colorado really pioneered the sector and it has done terrific things businesses. We’re working with our colleagues in the wine industry for that state, through synergies with their other tourism offerings to learn from their experience as well as the County to understand like skiing. We see the same thing happening here. With so much and work together to define how such programs can be made curiosity and enthusiasm for our fledgling industry, we know possible. cannabis tourism will bring new customers to the existing Santa Barbara offerings like wine tourism in addition to creating entirely Education? How are you getting the word out? new opportunities for visitors like cannabis farm stays and tours. Sara & Nate: Together with another wonderful and conscientious cannabis farmer in the region, we have co-founded an organization What does that look like from the visitors’ end? called the North County Farmers Guild, which Sara & Nate: Great question. Tourists have a lot of choices is dedicated to education and advocacy for when deciding where to go. So it’s important to have things local sun grown agriculture. We are, of course, that distinguish your area. That’s what happened with Colorado focused on cannabis, but we are inclusive of all compared to other skiing destinations like Utah. It set them apart agriculture and are working to promote best and strengthened the traditional tourism economy.

practices, economic development, and education for all things Ag. Look into your crystal ball. What is the biggest change that is coming in relation to cannabis and tourism?

Sara & Nate: Before we know it, cannabis will be legal at the federal level. Once that happens everything will change. The legal aspects will become much easier. But it’s important that Santa Barbara County plants its flag as the number one cannabis and wine agritourism center before that time comes. Is there anything else you want to share with our readers?

Sara & Nate: The only thing I’d add is that we know this works. We’ve hosted informal, private farm-to-table dinners on our farm. People absolutely loved eating local farm-to-table offerings and drinking wine from our neighboring wineries while seeing how cannabis is grown. The natural synergy was obvious to all. It’s important to realize that the addition of cannabis to tourism exposes an entirely new group of people to the existing wine, food, and hospitality tourism offerings. Millennials so far haven’t taken to wine tourism on its own the way baby boomers did, but our research shows that when paired with cannabis offerings they’re excited to learn more about wine. We truly believe, and research bears this out, together our industries can be two plus two equals twelve.

S STOCK MARKETS CRASHED THURSDAY, the New York Fed said it would allow banks to exchange government bonds for $1.5 trillion in cash, which is the most aggressive intervention in the markets to date by the Federal Reserve. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 2,353 points to rest at 21,200.62, which represents a 9.99 percent loss in a single day, the largest drop in value since the crash of 1987. Shares in Italy dropped 17 percent in the European Markets with a world recession following on the heals of the World Health Organization’s announcement of a pandemic as the result of the spread of the COVID-19, the newest Coronavirus.

California’s Response to COVID-19: We have been actively and extensively planning with our local public health and health care delivery systems. Here are some of the things we are already doing: • As in any public health event, the California Department of Public Health’s Medical and Health Coordination Center has been activated and is coordinating public health response efforts across the state. • California continues to prepare and respond in coordination with federal and local partners, hospitals and physicians. • Governor Newsom declared a State of Emergency to make additional resources available, formalize emergency actions already underway across multiple state agencies and departments, and help the state prepare for broader spread of COVID-19. • Governor Newsom requested the Legislature make up to $20 million available for state government to respond to the spread of COVID-19. • California activated the State Operations Center to its highest level to coordinate response efforts across the

state. • 24 million more Californians are now eligible for free medically necessary COVID-19 testing. • California made available some of its emergency planning reserves of 21 million N95 filtering face piece masks for use in certain health care settings to ease shortages of personal protective equipment. • The Public Health Department is providing information, guidance documents, and technical support to local health departments, health care facilities, providers, schools, universities, colleges, and childcare facilities across California • The California Employment Development Department (EDD) is encouraging individuals who are unable to work due to exposure to COVID-19 to file a Disability Insurance claim. • EDD is also encouraging employers who are experiencing a slowdown in their businesses or services as a result of the Coronavirus impact on the economy to apply for an Unemployment Insurance work sharing program. • California continues to work in partnership with the federal government to aid in the safe return of 962 Californians from the Grand Princess cruise ship. This mission is centered around protecting the health of the passengers, and ensuring that when the passengers disembark, the public health of the United States, the State of California, and partner communities is protected. • The Public Health Department is coordinating with federal authorities and local health departments that have implemented screening, monitoring and, in some cases quarantine of returning travelers. • In coordination with the CDC, state and local health departments, we are actively responding to cases of COVID-19. • The Public Health Department is supporting hospitals and local public health laboratories in the collection of specimens and testing for COVID-19.

The California Department of Public Health’s state laboratory in Richmond and 18 other public health department laboratories now have tests for the virus that causes COVID-19. Eighteen of them are currently conducting tests, with the others coming online soon.

magazine VERY COMMUNITY NEEDS CHANNELS OF www.VoiceSB.com AKA: CASA Magazine COMMUNICATION which are open and free to the public. For the past 25 years VOICE Magazine (and CASA) has remained free to Santa Barbara residents, both in print and digitally. We have never put up a pay wall to our digital edition or website. Your continued support via advertising and contributions have made this model of community journalism work. As journalism evolves, and even with 50 percent of local news sources disappearing since 1991, VOICE Magazine wants to continue the work of reconnecting the neighborhoods and smaller communities of people living here in Santa Barbara. Our community has seen many different kinds of media come and go, with support for their publications coming from a variety of sources, almost all well intentioned. While providing local service, we have managed to outlive other local news agencies such as The Daily Sound, The Beacon, Pacific Standard, and the Montecito Messenger. VOICE Magazine has survived because of its advertisers, readers, and its hard working staff that put in countless hours to support a diverse community that believes in being inclusive. This year Santa Barbara will face major economic decisions, water strategies, housing and homeless issues — at the same time, the need to become a more cohesive caring community makes local reporting more essential than ever. With your help, VOICE Magazine can advocate for a stronger and truly free press, which helps our community to be more than just famous. We hope you will consider a targeted contribution in support of this nearly 27 year project. Consider: • Funds for more Spanish and Bi-Lingual Articles... up to $10,000 needed. • Funds to expand local Environmental Coverage... up to $25,000 needed. • Funds to transition into a non-profit News Center... $5,000 needed. Please consider making a contribution today. VOICE Magazine: 924 Anacapa Street, suite B1-F; Santa Barbara, Ca. 93101. Phone: 805-965-6448. email: publisher@voicesb.com

Trusted Legal Grows into a New Office

W

ITH EXPANSION IN MIND, innovative business attorney Naomi Dewey has moved her Trusted Legal law firm to a new, larger Santa Barbara office. Trusted Legal, A Professional Law Corporation, is now open at 21 E. Carrillo St., Suite 130, in Santa Barbara. Serving the Central Coast, the firm also has an office in Santa Ynez, at 3630 Sagunto St., A-1. Specializing in business law, employment law, litigation, and risk management, Trusted Legal is based on the “trusted advisor” model of exceptional knowledge and targeted service, and Dewey is an experienced courtroom advocate and trial attorney who’s focused on resolution. “I pride myself on being a deal-maker, not a dealbreaker,” Dewey said, “by helping clients manage risk and make strategic decisions that fit with their long-term planning.” Extremely forward-thinking, Dewey infuses “a lot of new technologies into our practices,” she said, including artificial intelligence and cloud-based tools. Her philosophies are equally progressive. “The world changes fast,” she noted. “The practice of law should change with it … and we should always grow.” Naomi Dewey And so, her business is growing. “The reason for the Santa Barbara move to a bigger office is to make room for new attorneys joining the firm,” added Dewey, who has practiced law in Santa Barbara since 2007 and founded Trusted Legal just over a year ago, in early 2019. The president-elect of California Women Lawyers and a former president of the Santa Barbara County Bar Association, Dewey serves as counsel to businesses, nonprofits, private families, and entrepreneurs engaged in everything from manufacturing, healthcare, and real estate to cryptocurrency and cloud computing. While high-tech, Trusted Legal is ultimately about creating the administrative efficiencies that allow for more personalized service; “that’s our bottom line,” Dewey shared, adding that she’s surprised at how rare it can be to find a practice like hers. “We may be the first in the Santa Barbara area to be doing this,” she said. “There’s a national movement toward fully embracing new technologies in law practices, but it’s been very slow to catch on here.” A native of England, Dewey earned a Bachelor of Arts in journalism from the University of Sheffield and spent the first years of her career as a news editor and a marketing professional. Ultimately landing in Santa Barbara, she attended the Santa Barbara College of Law and earned her Juris Doctor there in 2007. The married mother of three, Dewey has enjoyed and appreciated her whole, well-rounded life. “I’ve been very busy in my life but very fulfilled and gratified,” she said, “and everything feeds into everything else. My family has always balanced me, and my background in journalism has made me a better attorney. Especially in litigation, practicing law is like storytelling – how you take the facts and put them together in a way that tells the best story for your client.” For more information on Trusted Legal, visit www.trusted.legal; email info@trusted.legal; or call 805-979-5160.

Neruda with gusto and flair. A little larger than life, and charismatic in every turn, his singing and acting was compelling, a credit to his onstage choices and his work with the Bryon Melye with Sandy and Bob Urquhart director. Providing some humor and/or lightness opposed to the grim trajectory of the plot, both soprano Julia Metzler as Matilde, Neruda’s wife, and mezzo-soprano Suzanna Guzmán Bernardo Bermudez and Nina Dunbar with as Beatrice’s aunt, Sarah Vautour (Beatrice) both provided lighthearted moments. The other ensemble performers, along with the adept chorus, offered clear singing and credible portrayals which included E. Scott Levin as the communist instigator Giorgio, John Allen Nelson as the duplicitous politician Di Cosimo, Bernardo Bermudez as Mario’s father, and Chandler Johnson as the high-strung Catholic priest. The conductor, Kostis Protopapas, relished leading the orchestra through the journey of the score with a variety of tangos, melodic orchestral passages, and Puccini-influenced arias. Scored in short spurts, the players developed a maelstrom of intensity with the musical colors of the violins, cellos, and woodwinds grounding the scenes. This terrain of notes was complex with the traditional rhythms associated with the post WWII period. The orchestral team succeeded without overwhelming the onstage interactions and at the prelude to Act III, all the colors of the score’s musical rainbow were realized. The evening was enthusiastically appreciated by the audience with a deserved standing ovation at the outstanding opening night performance. Backstage, afterwards, maestro Protopapas acknowledged the risk-taking needed to bring Il Postino to Santa Barbara, thanking everyone involved, including the key sponsors The Mosher Foundation and Richard and Marilyn Mazess. For this insightful revival, this specific production was dedicated to the honor of the longtime conductor and former OSB Artistic Director Valéry Rivkin, who passed away, too young, in mid-January. The next production by OSB will be Gounod’s Romeo & Juliet on May 1st and 3rd, also at the Lobero Theatre. For tickets for Romeo & Juliet call 805-898-3890 or visit www.OperaSB.org.

FTER THE HIDEOUS VIEWS OF SOME OF THE "WET MARKETS" IN CHINA WE HAVE SEEN, and I haven't shown you the worst, let's talk about clean markets today. I always head for the markets, country markets especially, when visiting a new town. Kiyoshi Kimura looks over the tuna he has just Starting with the best, let's look at Tsukiji purchased for over $3 million U.S. dollars. Fish Market in Tokyo, the finest fish market in the world. There are gigantic produce sections adjoining, and vendors and sushi bars, but the star is the very exclusive area where the freshest seafood is auctioned at dawn each morning. Owners of all the top sushi stores are there competing with each other. The top sushi chefs get the best fish and also pay the highest prices. In January 2019 a record was set when a 278 kilogram bluefin tuna sold for $3.1 million U.S. dollars. That comes down to about $5,000 a pound. I've never seen this sacred inner section An orderly Tokyo fish market in the tuna auctioning section of the Tokyo fish market, but I have a favorite street market in Kyoto. It is one street lined with stalls selling jars of pickles – the most colorful and imaginative pickles – and each jar is perfectly placed on the shelves. They pickled everything from the general appearance. In Budapest years ago, I went to an early morning peasant market far out in the country. It was interesting to see the people walking to the market carrying their produce or riding in horse pulled carts. The inside of the tent where the market was held was neatly arranged into small spaces for each seller. What was really fascinating to me was the fact that every entrance to the market was blocked by a table where country experts in mushrooms were seated. Every last wild mushroom brought in to be sold was hand examined by the mushroom experts. No poison mushrooms got past them! The most colorful markets I've found in India and Morocco. The great mounds of spices of every color and fragrance are heaped in rows down narrow lanes. I did once get into a butchery shop far out in the country in Morocco where they had an adequate supply of goat heads, freshly severed and leaking blood that were to be roasted Typical Japanese home delivery Sushi platter that night at a special holiday event. I found the same scene in a small butcher store in Wales, which truly surprised me. I never did find out why they had them or what they were going to do with them. It all makes me remember when my parents had the first visitors from Europe after WWII, they always took them to see our supermarkets. I couldn't understand the amazement they displayed on these market visits. All in all, we can be very proud of our clean, orderly, well stocked grocery stores in this country.

Nobelist Daniel Kahneman on Thinking, Fast and Slow By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

A

NOBEL LAUREATE, THE SON OF LITHUANIAN JEWISH PARENTS fleeing the Russian Empire in the 1920s who grew up with the terrifying sound of marching black boots during the Nazi occupation of Paris, and author of Thinking, Fast and Slow, what should Daniel Kahneman be noted for, if not the study of human behavior in both wartime and peacetime? This was the second year Dr. Kahneman was featured at Westmont’s annual Breakfast Lecture series, again packing the Hilton’s largest ballroom. I’m sure many were there because they were looking for some insight into how our species may react to the current coronavirus scare that some are characterizing as a ‘Black Swan’ event (mostly economists), meaning a very serious event with no predictable outcome. Dr. Kahneman, referring to his book Thinking, Fast and Slow, emphasized that our decision-making propensities come from different parts of the brain that cause us to both ‘narrow frame’ (fast process) and ‘broad frame’ (slow process) the information we take in. According to him, we need both parts to reach a rational decision that is in our best interests. We have a tendency, or bias, to come to a conclusion or make a decision quickly, but Dr. Kahneman says not so fast! We need the slowerthinking side of us to see the larger picture. He said it can be just a matter of closing one’s eyes for a few minutes to slow down our thought process and allow us to process what we’ve just taken in intuitively.

We should take the time to collect all the pertinent, ‘cognitive’ facts, in order to slow down our first reaction to what is right in front of us. He used several examples of narrow vs. broad frame thinking, such as forecasting future events, or diagnosing the high rate of skin cancer among farmers. I was particularly interested in his take on how we make economic decisions. He is at the foundation of behavioral economics, or how humans make financial decisions that are not always in our best interest; particularly if we allow so-called free, unregulated financial markets to make choices for us. There are now at least three Noble prizes that have been awarded for information biases in how we take in information and make decisions on what to invest, and they are mostly from Keynesian or neo-Keynesian economists that believe governments must take an active role in regulating markets to prevent excessive speculation as happened with the Dot-com bubble in 2001, or housing bubble bust that resulted in the Great Recession. Nobel economist Robert Shiller described in his best-selling book, Irrational Exuberance how many investors and homebuyers relied on rumor, hearsay, or word of mouth, rather than serious research to buy a home, or invest in the financial markets, thereby driving up asset prices (such as housing) to unsustainable levels. Stock investors call it herd behavior when investors rush into a particular investment because others are doing the same, rather than researching the history of the company or index to see if it is overvalued.

Dr. Kahneman and his partner, Amos Tversky, found that humans have an optimistic bias in forecasting favorable outcomes that we must be aware of, when making decisions based on those forecasts. We, therefore, need to look at the broader picture. How will the lowering of interest rates, as the Fed is currently doing, affect both poor and wealthy consumers, for instance? Should we save more and spend less in the event of an economic slowdown or recession? Stocks are very highly valued in this eleventh year of the current recovery, just by looking at the current price-to-earnings ratio of the S&P. Why? The record profits of those corporations cannot be sustained with slower population growth and labor productivity—the two main factors that determine economic growth. Their earnings, the denominator of the P/E ratio, will shrink causing the ratio to rise above historical levels, hence certain stock assets are overvalued and will eventually fall. That is what happened during the 2001 Dot-com stock bubble and 200709 Great Recession. P/E ratios soared to levels last seen before the Great Depression, which means history does provide lessons, if heeded. Here are two of behavioral economist and Nobel prize-winner Robert Shiller’s most memorable statements in Irrational Exuberance: “It amazes me how people are often more willing to act based on little or no data than to use data that is a challenge to assemble,” and, “The ability to focus attention on important things is a defining characteristic of intelligence.” We know it’s best to slow down one’s thinking process, before making an important decision. But how often do we?

SBA Breaks Passenger Records

T

HE AIRLINES SERVING SANTA BARBARA AIRPORT have completed their passenger reporting for 2019 and have confirmed that the airport has broken all-time records for passenger traffic for the 2019 calendar year. The airport’s numbers would have been even higher — exceeding one million passengers — if the airport had not been closed for 18 hours on August 25th after a private C-130 aircraft crashed on the main runway, canceling all flights. With the help of its dedicated airlines and staff, the airport served a total of 998,691 passengers. This overall passenger number represents a 27.1 percent increase over 2018. Traffic at Santa Barbara has grown steadily since 2016. The next highest passenger volume for a calendar year happened back in 2006 with 865,998 passengers, served then by the Ovington Terminal. The growth at Santa Barbara made it the fastest growing airport two years running in Southern California — growing faster than LAX, Burbank, Orange County John Wayne, and Ontario airports. One of the most important events at SBA in 2019 was the reemergence of Delta Airlines in August with three-times daily service to Salt Lake City and more than 100 connecting points beyond. While still in its ramp-up phase, Delta Airlines now represents ten percent of the total seat capacity in the Santa Barbara air travel market. United Airlines still holds the largest share with more than 40 percent of seat capacity. SBA has already announced new services that will grow passenger numbers in 2020. On May 21st, Alaska Airlines will add a seasonal second flight to Seattle in the morning, to complement its current afternoon departure. Frontier Airlines will also resume its seasonal service three times weekly to Denver on June 9th. The first new destination announcement for 2020 is the addition of daily service to Chicago on www.FlySBA.com United Airlines, beginning on June 4th.

Sea Center Needs Volunteers

T

HE SANTA BARBARA MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY’S SEA CENTER ON STEARNS WHARF IS SEEKING VOLUNTEERS above the age of eleven to share their passion for the ocean and its inhabitants. The Sea Center gives volunteers the unique opportunity to educate the public about Santa Barbara’s coastal environment, perform hands-on demonstrations, and give live animal presentations at the Shark Cove, Intertidal Wonders, Wet Deck exhibits, and more. Volunteers also learn about the care and biology of sea creatures such as sharks, rays, sea stars, and anemones. They also gain valuable experience as educators communicating science, translating scientific terminology and technical information into casual language that is understandable to aquarium visitors of all ages. Volunteering is also an opportunity for high school students to collect the community service hours needed to graduate, but many find it a reward in itself. The Sea Center welcomes volunteers of all ages, but those under 14 years must volunteer with a guardian. This rewarding experience offers ongoing opportunities to learn more about local marine life, meet new people, and promote the conservation of our oceans. Volunteers also get to attend monthly advanced trainings, lectures, and occasional field trips to marine habitats. Past trips have included guided tours to unique areas not typically open to the public. www.sbnature.org/scvolunteer or scvolunteermanager@sbnature2.org

When visitors come to Casa del Herrero, or the “House of the Blacksmith,” they are transported back to Montecito in the 1920s and 1930s – the heyday of the original owner George Fox Steedman. Designed by George Washington Smith, the Casa is one of the finest examples of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture in America. It is included on the National Register of Historic Places, and maintains National Historic Landmark status in part due to its eclectic mix of Country Place Era and Moorish-inspired gardens created by Ralph Stevens, Lockwood de Forest, and Francis T. Underhill. www.casadelherrero.com

State Street Ballet to Premier:

A Classical and Modern Innovation of Sleeping Beauty

T

RANSFORMING A TIMELESS TALE, State Street Ballet will present a modern take on Sleeping Beauty at The Granada Theatre on March 14th. The ballet is the newest story ballet in the SSB Family Series, romantically reflecting the cycle of the seasons, an allegory of life itself. Set to Tchaikovsky’s celebrated score, the choreography showcases classical and modern elements, innovative sets, and puppetry—including a 15-foot tall wearable dragon, designed by artist Christina McCarthy. “I love storytelling in the body and the intersection of theatre and dance,” shared McCarthy, a former dancer herself. In addition to her work as a puppet and mask designer and creator, McCarthy has taught contemporary modern dance technique, choreography, and digital video editing for dance at UC Santa Barbara for the last decade, and has worked in partnership with Santa Barbara High School as a choreographer for their top-ranked performing arts program for 15 years. State Street Ballet’s Professional Track trainees, as well as students from Gustafson Dance, join the company’s professional dancers to fill Sleeping Beauty’s 86 character roles. Presented in two acts with a running time of 90 minutes and a 20-minute intermission, the performance is suitable for audiences of all ages. As part of its outreach activity, State Street Ballet will also perform an outreach show for over 1,000 elementary students, on March 13th, followed by the Santa Barbara premiere on March 14th. State Street Ballet’s silver anniversary season will continue with the annual showcase of contemporary choreography, Modern Masters on May 8th and 9th, at the New Vic. State Street Ballet’s 2019-20 season is sponsored by Tim Mikel, Margo-Cohen Feinberg and Robert Feinberg, and Sara Miller McCune. Sleeping Beauty is sponsored by Patricia Gregory for the Baker Foundation; Anne Smith Towbes for the Poomer Fund; Belle Hahn for The Little One Foundation; The Léni Fé Bland Performing Arts Partnership, a project of the Santa Barbara Education Foundation; and the Santa Barbara Bowl and Santa Barbara County Arts Commission. Additional funding was provided by Barbara Burger and Paul E. Munch.

O

NE OF THE (MANY) PRIVILEGES OF WRITING THIS COLUMN is that I am allowed to view Santa Barbara’s picturesque waterfront with new eyes every time I contemplate one of the attractions to highlight for the week. With the crisp air and a Chamber of Commerce blue sky dotted with puffy clouds brushing the mountains everything I saw last Sunday simply glowed! Driving down Cabrillo Boulevard I came to a screeching halt in front of the largest Funk Zone mural by Brad Nack piece of public art in the city, Herbert Bayer’s Chromatic Gate, also known as ‘the rainbow statue’. Talk about GLOW, especially in the late sun of the first day of daylight saving time, that huge object with a height of 42 ft and a weight of 12.5 tons, had a special radiance all its own! The sculpture, as public art, was the work of Bauhaus artist, Herbert Bayer, who lived in Montecito the last ten years of his life. The Chromatic Gate was Bayer’s tribute – and his legacy - to the rich creative atmosphere of Santa Barbara, and the artists who lived there. Bayer, schooled in the Bauhaus philosophy, conceived the Chromatic Gate in the Bauhaus artistic tradition.“Let us create a new guild of craftsmen, without the class distinctions which raise an arrogant barrier between craftsmen and artist,” the school’s idealistic founder Walter Gropius declared, “which will embrace architecture and sculpture and painting in one unity.” Apparently, in 1991, some Santa Barbarans hadn’t read the Bauhaus manifesto! The work was commissioned to be placed in Santa Barbara by another artistic and public art visionary Paul Chadbourne Mills (up until this year the longest serving Director of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art) who was informed by the city council that no public art was needed because the city’s art was its gardens and the red tile roofs. Today this would be called a ‘Creative Difference’! Paul Mills was never one to accept anything that resembled a ‘No’. His stamp remains on public art all over Santa Barbara, including the colorful flags on the harbor breakwater still flying in his honor. Mills managed, with the help of Bayer’s former employer the ARCO Company, to have the sculpture installed front and center on Cabrillo Boulevard in front of the largest hotel on the waterfront. The city council’s viewpoint exists today, as are the sculpture’s Bauhaus traditions. Interestingly, those diverse visions juxtaposed against each other is what makes the Chromatic Gate a signature piece of public art and a huge tourist attraction. A couple of young ladies from San Diego, Maddie and Kanalee, on their way up the coast, were standing awestruck in front of the Chromatic Gate when I arrived. The colors they said, were absolutely brilliant, like none they’d ever seen, and its shadows in the afternoon sun were equally awe inspiring … would I take a picture of them for their Instagram post? Typical reaction, I thought proudly as I snapped away with their iPhones, and later my own. The ladies left to visit the Funk Zone which contains some of the 21st Century version of public art on the walls of its buildings. Originally received with the same chilly reception as the Chromatic Gate in cities around the world, this randomly imposed example of public art has its traditions in ‘street art’ (still known as graffiti). Today Street Art has become part of the artistic mainstream, even to the extent that the work of famous street artists has had the walls of buildings transported to Christie’s Auction Houses to be sold for millions! I decided to follow the girls to the Funk Zone where I snapped an example of our own version of this colorful medium, yet another statement of the impact of joyful color here in Santa Barbara whether mankind’s creation or from the palate of Mother Nature! More to come … 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.

his exhibition features fantastic Otomí embroidery known as tenangos, which originated in the Tenango de Doria municipality in the Mexican State of Hidalgo. This traditional Otomí embroidery was modified to create pieces to sell in the 1960s due to an economic imbalance. This style of embroidery designs is filled with symbols based on native flora and fauna that manifest local beliefs and primitive cave drawings found in the Hidalgo region including birds, chickens, armadillos, rabbits, butterflies, flowers, etc., using bright colors over cotton fabric known as manta. This embroidery style has been applied to tablecloths, placemats bedspread, pillow covers, various styles of clothing and more. We invite you to admire this entrancing Otomí Dream.
