The Wynton Marsalis Septet

LABELED “COOLLY COSMOPOLITAN” AND “THE EVER FUNKY” by Jazz Times’ A.D.

Amorosi, the Wynton Marsalis

Septet will capture the attention and soul of Granada attendees, when UCSB Arts & Lectures presents the Septet on Tuesday, April 4th at 7pm at the Granada Theatre. In the intimate theatre, Wynton Marsalis will focus the star power of his newest Septet team as they offer up his latest original compositions and standards spanning the vast historical landscape of jazz music.

Originally formed in the spring of 1989, the Wynton Marsalis Septet has featured acclaimed musicians such as Wycliffe Gordon and Wess “Warmdaddy” Anderson. 34 years later, this special group has taken new form, with some of jazz’s biggest rising stars. As Douglas Hall of Glide Magazine describes it, the Wynton Marsalis Septet “combines familiar musical friendships and his passion for discovering new talent.”

Marsalis is an internationally acclaimed musician, composer, and bandleader, as well as an educator and a leading advocate of American culture. He has created and performed an expansive range of music from quartets to big bands, chamber music ensembles to symphony orchestras and tap dance to ballet, expanding the vocabulary for jazz and classical music with a vital body of work that places him among the world’s finest musicians and composers.

At age 17, Wynton became the youngest musician ever to be admitted to Tanglewood’s Berkshire Music Center. Despite his age, he was awarded the school’s prestigious Harry Shapiro Award for outstanding brass student. Marsalis moved to New York City to attend Juilliard in 1979.

Wynton assembled his own band in 1981 and hit the road, performing over 120

concerts every year for 15 consecutive years. Over the years he has won nine Grammy Awards and in 1997 he became the first jazz musician to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music for his epic oratorio Blood On The Fields.

With the power of his superior musicianship, the infectious sound of his swinging bands, and a far-reaching series of performances and music workshops, Marsalis rekindled widespread interest in jazz throughout the world and inspired a renaissance that attracted a new generation of fine young talent to jazz. Some of those young people will be sharing the stage with him during this performance.

Septet members include:

Abdias Armenteros began playing saxophone at eight years old, playing jazz in the ninth grade. A native of Miami, Florida, his attendance at the New World School of the Arts High School let him travel to New York City to compete in events like Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Essentially Ellington competition. Armenteros also traveled internationally to Kagoshima, Japan, where he represented the city of Miami and the United States by being part of the only nonAsian group to perform in the Kagoshima Asian Arts Youth Festival.

He is completing the first year of his master’s degree at The Juilliard School as a Jazz Studies Major after completing his undergraduate degree there. Since being in New York, he has shared the bandstand with world-renowned artists like Wynton Marsalis, Ben Vereen, Aloe Blacc, Victor Lewis, and Arlo Parks. He performs regularly at top jazz clubs and venues in the city, and is a firm believer that music is healing, and we’re living in a time where we need healing the most.

Domo Branch is a drummer, composer, and educator from Portland, Oregon. The co-owner of Sound Poets Productions with

his partner Matt Malanowski, he is also the leader of his own band “Branchin’ Out” and co-leader of the Brown Branch Jazz Orchestra. Since earning his degree at New York’s Manhattan School of Music, Branch has established himself as one of the world’s top up-and-coming drummers, composers, and educators.

“I love music, it flows through my life,” Branch shared in an interview with Portland-based youth organization Self Enhancement, Inc. “I really couldn’t imagine doing anything else.”

He has performed and/or toured with prominent artists such as Sean Jones, Stefon Harris, Dianne Reeves, Mike Phillips, Wynton Marsalis, and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Domo has also performed at a variety of festivals and venues such as Carnegie Hall, Konzerthaus Berlin, the Monterey Jazz Festival, Caramoor Jazz Festival, and New York’s Jazz Standard.

Monterey

Christopher Crenshaw began playing piano at three years old and started playing trombone at eleven years old. He grew up playing keyboard with his father Casper in a gospel quartet from Thomson, Georgia, the Echoes of Joy.

La Primera to Feature Four-Nations Dinner & Host International Star Patricia Guerrero A

S SPRING APPROACHES, all things Fiesta come back to life. From the April 15th Spirit of Fiesta Auditions at the Lobero Theatre (tickets are now on sale) to La Primavera, traditions, history, and Santa Barbara’s varied cultural roots are spotlighted. La Primavera, set for May 13th, is an annual event that harkens back to Fiesta’s origins in a group organized in 1919 to celebrate the early Spanish and pioneer days of California, the La Primavera Association.

With 2023 El Presidente David Bolton in the lead, this year’s Fiesta events will highlight many historic venues while creating a little new history along the way. La Primavera, the traditional Spring celebration, will return to Casa De La Guerra and the Historic El Paseo Restaurant and feature a memorable “Four Nations” dinner. The heart and fire of the evening will be provided by one of Spain’s most celebrated flamenco dancers, Patricia Guerrero. She’ll share the stage with local dance artists Manuel Gutierrez, Daniela Zermeño Sanchez, and Ryan Zermeño, and Solera by Flamenco! Santa Barbara.

A highlight will be the official first dances of the 2023 Spirit and Junior Spirit of Fiesta followed by a live auction.

The evening will begin with a red carpet arrival and reception at Casa De La Guerra, the former home of José Antonio de la Guerra y Noriega, the last Commandant of the Presidio of Santa Barbara. Later, guests dressed in their finest Fiesta attire, will stroll down the “Santa Barbara Street of Spain.” Arriving at the El Paseo Restaurant, the area’s roots in the Chumash, Spanish, Mexican, and United States will be recognized in an elegant “Four Nations Dinner.”

Thanks to a generous donation from the Spanish Office of Tourism in Los Angeles, Spain's AwardWinning dancer, Patricia Guerrero, who has been called “a flamenco dancer of a supernatural force” will perform.

“The vision for this year’s La Primavera celebration is to honor our history and culture, and also provide an evening of outstanding entertainment and food at one of this town’s most

iconic Fiesta venues,” said Bolton in the announcement. “So many memorable Fiesta evenings have taken place at the El Paseo, and there are few venues more historic than Casa De La Guerra. It will be a great evening!”

The current La Primavera Event is a fundraiser that raises money for the many cherished free Fiesta community events like La Fiesta Pequeña, Las Noches de Ronda, and El Desfile Histórico (the historic Fiesta Parade).

Dos Pueblos Takes Second at CA Mock Trial State Finals Competition

SANTA BARBARA STUDENTS SHONE this past weekend when Dos Pueblos High School took second place at the California Mock Trial State Finals. Hosted on March 19th in Los Angeles, the finals hosted schools from 36 counties statewide. In addition to taking second place, Dos Pueblos senior Jacob Molina was recognized by county competition judges as “Outstanding Attorney.”

“Representing Santa Barbara County was an incredible accomplishment and honor for our team,” said Dos Pueblos High School Principal Bill Woodard, who is also a former mock trial team coach. “We were so proud of how our kids rose to the occasion against the best of the best.”

In years past, Dos Pueblos has won three state championships and reached the final championship round eight times.

“While coming so close to another state title may sting for a minute, these kids have made their coaches, their school, and their county proud,” Woodard added. “At the end of one round, the presiding judge - who’s a federal judge - called Jacob out and said she’d rank his motion work among the best she’s heard from actual attorneys in her courtroom.”

As a team attorney, Molina examined witnesses and presented the closing argument. He voiced appreciation for his team’s ability to remain strong and united leading up to the final round.

“Coming together in that big moment, keeping our motivation and energy levels high, and being able to support each other and come through…was big for us,” he said. At the county level, the Santa Barbara County Education Office (SBCEO) co-sponsors the competition with the Santa Barbara County Superior Court and the Constitutional Rights Foundation.

Senator Limón Discusses Prescribed Grazing as Innovative Wildfire Mitigation

AN EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE MEANS OF PREVENTING WILDFIRE, prescribed grazing is coming into the forefront of Central Coast fire prevention conversations. On March 22nd, Senator Monique Limón joined the Community Environmental Council for a webinar that reviewed Senate Bill 675 and how prescribed grazing can help local communities. Introduced last month by Limón, the bill calls for expanded financial support of statewide prescribed grazing.

“We are extremely grateful to Senator Limon for pushing SB 675 forward,” said CEC’s Molly Taylor. “If passed, this bill will make it easier to scale up this critical resilience tool that we and our partners have demonstrated as an effective, climatesmart approach to addressing California’s wildfire crisis.”

Prescribed grazing involves letting livestock such as goats, sheep, and cattle graze in areas overrun by dry brush and grass. While controlled burns and mechanical thinning are effective, prescribed grazing holds the benefits of being more precise, holding potential to repair the carbon and water cycles, and involving fewer greenhouse gases. Currently, CEC’s Climate Resilience team is working to expand prescribed grazing throughout the Central Coast region in collaboration with local partners.

Point in Time Count Preliminary Results

THE PRELIMINARY RESULTS OF THE 2023 POINT IN TIME (PIT) count conducted on January 25th by the Santa Maria/Santa Barbara County Continuum of Care reflected a 3.7 percent decrease in people experiencing homelessness in the past year. County-wide, 1,887 persons were counted. Of that total, 1,202 were experiencing unsheltered homelessness and 685 were living in emergency shelters or transitional housing. More than 77 percent of persons surveyed reported losing housing while living in Santa Barbara County.

The County Board of Supervisors, Continuum of Care, and cities adopted a Community Action Plan to address homelessness in 2021 that outlines strategies and actionable steps. Following the adoption of the plan, 140 shelter beds and over 800 permanent housing opportunities have been added to the response system. 2022 saw 1,050 persons transitioned into permanent housing despite high rents and low rental availability. The PIT identified the distribution of the population experiencing homelessness as 59 percent in south county (1,107 persons) and 41percent in mid and north county (780 persons).

A Joyful, Community Concert

Review by Daisy Scott / VOICE

SMILING AS THEY PLAYED THE

UNFORGETTABLE

NOTES of John Williams’ most revered music, Santa Barbara Symphony musicians and guest conductor Rei Hotoda presented a lively example of music’s power to unite a community. Performed March 18th and 19th at the Granada Theatre, John Williams: A Cinematic Celebration traversed this legendary composer’s repertoire with gusto, highlighting his career’s emotional impact through music and testimony.

The diverse makeup of Sunday’s audience immediately reflected the unique ability of Williams’ music to collectively inspire. As the crowd filtered in, teenagers played games on their phones beside Symphony regulars, while parents instructed their children to stay in their seats.

Excitement mounted as Symphony President & CEO Kathryn Martin walked onstage to read a letter sent to the Symphony by the man of the hour himself. The audience’s applause amplified as Hotoda took the podium, launching an invigorating performance of Superman March

Hotoda conducted the orchestra with precision and flair, encouraging each section to display its individual and collective talents. Her body language aptly reflected the severity or levity of each piece, from the slow, ethereal sounds of Close Encounters of the Third Kind to the whirling majesty of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

The joy of orchestra musicians grew increasingly apparent as the concert progressed, with more than a few members smiling

like a child watching Indiana Jones for the first time.

The exuberant atmosphere was heightened by testimonies from Santa Barbara Symphony musicians who have played with Williams in recording studios. Laughter erupted as Concertmaster Jessica Guideri, Principal Viola Erik Rynearson, and Contrabassonist Leslie Lashinsky shared their recording studio memories, from photo-ops with Harrison Ford to being kept in the dark about what Jurassic Park’s dinosaurs actually looked like.

“It’s not just playing the notes, it’s cementing cultural history,” shared Don Foster, who plays Principal Clarinet for Williams as well as for the Santa Barbara Symphony.

While many Williams tribute concerts feature screenings of movie clips, the Symphony’s decision to forgo any multimedia element emphasized the profound beauty of Williams’ music outside of their traditional visuals. An emotional high point emerged when Concertmaster Jessica Guideri performed the Theme from Schindler’s List, her violin singing with poignancy and hope.

Hotoda and the musicians continued in this more serious vein with stirring performances of With Malice Toward None from Lincoln, followed by the Theme From JFK. In pairing these works among the whimsical Adventures on Earth from E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, and the swashbuckling Raiders March from Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park theme, the concert emphasized both the Symphony’s and Williams’ ability to evoke wonder through music.

“Going back to the sixth grade when I picked up trombone it was just a natural thing, being able to play by ear,” shared Crenshaw on an episode of the YouTube series The Black Trombone Chronicles.

A graduate of The Juilliard School, Crenshaw has been with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis since 2006 and founded The Georgia Horns in 2011. He’s transcribed music and written arrangements for two Tony Award-nominated musicals, After Midnight, and Shuffle Along. He appears on numerous albums including Marcus Printup’s Ballads All Night, Wynton Marsalis and Eric Clapton Play the Blues, Paul Simon’s In the Blue Light, Ted Nash’s GRAMMY award-winning The Presidential Suite, and The Abyssinian Mass Crenshaw is featured on two albums of his own: The Georgia Horns Live at Dizzy’s Club and The Fifties: A Prism with the JLCO.

Carlos Henriquez was born in 1979 in the Bronx, New York. Growing up in the Bronx, he was constantly exposed to music that would ultimately shape his passion for Latin Jazz.

A medley of Star Wars music rounded out the concert, as the Symphony delivered a rousing performance of Duel of Fates followed by the more delicate but equally strong Princess Leia Theme. With sudden bravado, the familiar horns of Star Wars’ main theme resonated from the stage, transporting listeners to a galaxy far, far away.

The audience immediately launched into two standing ovations that led to two memorable encores. Boasting a mischievous smile, Hotoda exchanged her baton for a miniature lightsaber, leading the Symphony in March of the Resistance from The Force Awakens.

Flashing another grin, Hotoda flickered the lightsaber to turn red, launching into a performance of Darth Vader’s foreboding Imperial March. As its ominous notes reverberated through the Granada, the audience leaped to their feet for a third and final ovation. www.TheSymphony.org

“I heard a lot of Latin music,” Henriquez told CBS New York last April. “You know, salsa, traditional Latin music, Dominican music, Haitian music. That was the beauty of living here is that I was absorbing all that."

He played clarinet, piano, and guitar throughout elementary and middle school. He took up the bass in The Juilliard School’s Music Advancement Program, and realized how much he enjoyed it when he was asked to fill in for his church’s bassist.

“I started falling in love with the position of playing the bass," Henriquez continued. "I started slowly understanding that I could be something musically and I could really touch people spiritually."

In 1998, Henriquez joined the Wynton Marsalis Septet and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, touring the world and being featured on more than 25 albums. He has been a member of the

Housing Market Recovering – Part II

REAL

CONTINUES ITS SLIGHT RECOVERY with housing starts and new residential permits on the rise in February. Most of the action was in rental housing, as apartment construction is up 9.9 percent YoY in February. Whereas February single-family construction has been falling and is now down 31.6 percent YoY.

It’s easy to see why more multi-family housing is under construction. Singlefamily affordability has plunged with 30-year conforming fixed rates still around 6.75 percent.

The Case-Shiller Home Price Index also highlights the price fluctuations in existing-home prices that made affordability such a problem in Calculated Risk’s above graph of the Case-Shiller Index dating from 1988.

Price rises peaked in January 2004 and January 2023 when they were rising as much as 20 percent YoY before declining sharply. It was a time of multiple offers and ultra-low interest rates that crowded out firsttimers.

Economic VOICE

The NAR’s Housing Affordability Index showed that from 2020 to 2022 the income required to qualify for a 90 percent LTV mortgage on an entry-level home had doubled from $49,008 to $92,688 while the 30-year fixed rate rose from 3.17 percent to 6.77 percent. This puts many more first-time buyers out of the market. Their share of purchases has fallen to 30 percent of existing-home sales when it was as much as 40 percent before housing prices accelerated in 2021.

The sharp declines in price inflation that followed both times were precipitated by the Federal Reserve’s actions to tighten credit, and the lack of entry-level housing.

One reason that builders are building again is the slow down in inflation, with the S&P Composite Home Price Index now rising in the four percent range. There are also a record 1.7 million homes still under construction, which is a tremendous backlog also bringing down prices.

“The cooling in home prices that began in June 2022 continued through year end,

Santa Barbara South County Sales

as December marked the sixth consecutive month of declines for our National Composite Index,” says Craig J. Lazzara, Managing Director at S&P DJI.

Mortgage rates have been up and down but won’t

give much boost to housing until the Fed decides to ease up on the rate increases. Still, signs of life this early in the selling season and without any indication the feds will pause in their rate hikes is difficult to ignore.

Local Nonprofits Receive Grants as Montecito Bank & Trust Celebrates 48th Anniversary

LOCAL NON-PROFITS JOINED MONTECITO

BANK & TRUST ASSOCIATES in celebrating the bank’s 48th anniversary on March 15th. During the event, ten nonprofits each received a $3,000 Anniversary Grant. The non-profits were chosen by bank employees in a selection/celebration cycle that has taken placed the same way every year since 1993.

The Bank’s late founder, Michael Towbes, started the Anniversary Grants program to honor Montecito Bank & Trust’s anniversary by giving back to the community. He wanted bank employees to have a voice in the direction of the Bank’s corporate giving and to celebrate the exceptional volunteer service given to Central Coast communities, according to the bank.

Ten lucky and deserving local nonprofits were hand-selected by Bank employees after they campaigned, rallied, and voted for the organizations that are significant or special to them. Recipients received a short promotional video showcasing each organization’s extraordinary work in addition to a grant.

Chairman & CEO Janet Garufis talked about the special place the Anniversary Grants holds in the Bank’s

corporate giving, noting, “While Anniversary Grants is smaller in scope compared to Community Dividends®, what makes it so special is how it celebrates the organizations that mean so much to our associates. That very notion is what Mike so deeply cherished and looked forward to each year, learning about the organizations that our associates embraced, and hearing about programs he may not have been familiar with.”

In 2020, the Bank introduced the Jerry Parent Anniversary Grants Legacy Award to honor the decadeslong selfless community contributions of one of the Bank’s founders and long-time Board Director, Jerry Parent. The award is presented to an organization that makes a significant and sustainable impact on a local community. The Anti-Defamation League Santa Barbara/Tri-Counties (ADL) is this year’s recipient. The ADL also received a $3,000 grant and promotional video and will be featured on a commemorative plaque in the Downtown Branch.

The Bank encourages the community to join them in celebrating these worthy 2023 Anniversary Grants Recipients:

Sit Behind the Nets! Advocates for Safer Baseball

MOTHER, LINDA,

TO A DODGERS GAME IN THE SUMMER OF 2018, she was unexpectedly hit in the head by a foul ball and died a few days later from blunt-force trauma. Goldbloom set down an investigative path trying to understand why this happened to her mother, and what she learned along the way resulted in her writing her memoir, Sit Behind the Nets!

“I call it my memoir with a message,” said Goldbloom. “Even if you don’t read it, the message is right there in the title.”

For a first attempt at spreading a message with the written word as opposed to visual art, Sit Behind the Nets! is infused with a palpable sense of grief that rushes over the reader as a wave with each page, for what does one do with a lifetime’s worth of love for a lost loved one? Goldbloom masterfully swathes her feeling of loss with anecdotes about the person her mother was and how much everyone around her loved her.

She also takes the opportunity to inform readers

of the “Baseball Rule,” a legal doctrine created in 1913 that immunizes teams and stadiums from being liable for any accident or injury that happens during a game, shifting the onus of safety from the teams and stadiums to the individual fans in attendance. Unfortunately, Linda Goldbloom was not the first person to die from a baseball-related injury. In 1970, a young boy named Alan Fish died after being struck by a foul ball. In the 50 years between these events, no additional measures had been taken to prevent it from happening again. Because of the Baseball Rule, no team can be sued, and because of that, they have no obligation to change their practices. Goldbloom shares a statistic from Bloomberg showing that at least 1,750 people are injured at baseball games every year.

“It’s a pretty desperate situation, as most of the people injured at games are living daily with wound trauma,” wrote Goldbloom. “Fans who have been injured at Major or Minor League games live with seizures, chronic headaches, loss of vision, and worse.”

The lucky amongst those dealing with loss have outlets to which they can turn, whether that be their community, art, or engaging in therapy. For some, however, addressing feelings is not enough. They need to see action—to feel that a change has been made so that

they can protect everyone else from sharing a similar experience.

Goldbloom has since dedicated much time to advocating for the Major and Minor League Baseball to implement greater safety measures such as higher and more widespread netting, and to promote fan awareness of the inherent dangers of sitting close to the space where near-hundred-mile-per-hour projectiles are launched into the air faster than the eye can track.

“Players shouldn’t have to work in fear that they might hurt someone,” said Goldbloom.

Jana Goldbloom Brody will be signing copies of Sit Behind the Nets! at Chaucer’s Books (3321 State Street) on Wednesday, March 29 at 6pm. Purchase a copy of Sit Behind the Nets! at Chaucer’s Books, or on Amazon.

Direct Relief Shines on the Breakwater & Around the World

WALKING ALONG THE HARBOR BREAKWATER on one of Santa Barbara’s few recent sunny days, the colorful flags on the breakwater representing some of Santa Barbara’s many non-profits were fully flying courtesy of a brisk breeze from the south. With Spring’s arrival this week, perhaps those atmospheric rivers will find our shores less inviting. Stopping to admire the view, I looked up to see the flag representing Direct Relief, one of the world’s premiere charities with headquarters located right here in Santa Barbara...and...whose charity currently extends to those of us in California impacted by our continuing weather chaos!

Especially during this time of global unrest and climate uncertainties, the Breakwater Flag Project is proud to have the honor of showcasing Direct Relief, known worldwide for its mission to improve quality of life regardless of nationality, politics, religion, gender, or the ability to pay. This organization exists for the simple humanitarian purpose of assisting people whose health and lives are threatened by poverty, endemic diseases, natural disasters, or civil conflict.

Direct Relief has a long and fascinating history that began after the destruction brought about by World War II in Europe. In 1945, Estonian immigrant William Zimdin, a wealthy businessman residing in Santa Barbara, began sending relief parcels to relatives, friends, and former employees in the European war zones. As a result of the fascism that forced Zimdin to flee Europe, he decided to dedicate his wealth to the oppressed and those who had suffered as he had during the conflicts of the 20th century. Thousands of packages containing food, clothing, and medicines continued to be sent to Europe in massive humanitarian efforts in the years that followed. In 1948 he formalized his efforts with the creation of the William Zimdin Foundation, the template for all that was to follow. After Zimdin’s death in 1951 an immigrant from Hungary, Dezso (Dennis) Karczag, assumed management of the

Bookworm Corner: Corduroy

LONG BEFORE TOY STORY, author/illustrator

Don Freeman ventured to imagine what toys might get up to when no one was around to witness them.

Published in 1968, Corduroy has persisted as a storytime favorite for generations of readers, earning its place among the National Education Association’s Teachers’ Top 100 Books for Children.

At its core, Corduroy is a straightforward story about acceptance, sparking feelings of compassion through its wholesome simplicity.

Taking place within a typical ‘60s department store, the book follows a stuffed bear, Corduroy, who is consistently passed over by children and parents shopping for toys. After overhearing a mother telling her daughter, Lisa, that Corduroy doesn’t look new

foundation and in 1957 changed the organization’s name to the Direct Relief Foundation.

In the early 1960s, the foundation refined its mission to serve disadvantaged populations in medically underserved communities around the world and within the United States. To assist with this effort, Direct Relief became licensed as a wholesale pharmacy to better provide prescription medicines when needed. Supplies, food, medicine, and other needs continue to be provided worldwide for victims of earthquakes and natural disasters such as those in Syria and Turkey, in war zones like that in Ukraine, and against the recent global pandemic and other epidemics.

In 2019, Direct Relief opened a new Santa Barbara warehouse and distribution headquarters. The building is 155,000-square-feet and earthquake-safe, outfitted with state-of-the-art distribution technology for medical supplies. Direct Relief partnered with Tesla technology to keep the headquarters running for up to six months in the face of a disaster and to store temperaturesensitive medications like vaccines and insulin. All of this is right here in our town!

Currently among the top items on Direct Relief’s agenda is providing aid here during California’s ongoing atmospheric rivers. In keeping with the founder’s original vision, charity does begin right here at home. Direct Relief’s logo flying on the harbor breakwater represents the best of our generous Santa Barbara community. Now, who wouldn’t be proud?

Sigrid Toye volunteers for the Breakwater Flag Project. She is on the board of the Maritime Museum and participates in Yacht Club activities.

due to missing a button from his green overalls, he sets out to explore the department store in search of his lost button. Uncertain, he traverses mountains (escalators) and discovers a palace (the furniture department) before he finds a button.

The next day, before Corduroy has the chance to reattach the button, Lisa returns without her mother to purchase Corduroy. She takes him home, where she reassures Corduroy that she likes him just the way he is.

This sentiment alone secures Corduroy as a meaningful read that emphasizes the importance of acceptance and understanding when meeting new people. Its second grade reading level and warm illustrations make it an engaging work for readers of all ages.

However, in examining Corduroy’s pages a bit closer, deeper significance emerges. When Corduroy shares that he always wanted a friend, Lisa immediately replies, “Me too!,” implying to readers that she was previously facing a loneliness similar to Corduroy. This detail presents opportunities for teachers or parents to talk with students about whether or not they’ve ever felt like Lisa or Corduroy.

“To me, the lesson here is: if you can accept yourself, that opens the door to accepting a real friendship with someone else,” said Freeman’s son, Roy, in a written statement on his father’s website. “But that first step is not always so easy.”

Additional opportunities for discussion can emerge in asking students if they would prefer to live in the department store or Lisa’s humble apartment, and what

turns a space into a home. As Freeman, who eventually became a Santa Barbara resident, wrote to his publisher, “I...wanted the story to show the vast difference between the luxury of a department store as against the simple quality of life as lived by so many.”

Bookworm Corner is a weekly column dedicated to highlighting children’s and young adult books that carry positive messages. It is penned by Daisy Scott, a lifelong reader and lover of children’s literature who holds her degree in literature and writing from UC San Diego.

Habitat Santa Barbara cordially invites you to their annual fundraising benefit, Denim & Diamonds, on Friday, May 19th, at the Carriage and Western Art Museum. Support them in their mission of helping low-income individuals and families build and improve a place to call home. Learn about the value of safe and affordable housing, hear stories from thriving homeowners, and be a part of building a vision for the future. Hope to see you there!

Six Juveniles, Two Replica Guns Involved in Police Stop

MONDAY, MARCH 20TH: A witness seeing a gun in the hands of a juvenile outside of Macy’s in Santa Barbara started a large police response.

Eventually a vehicle was spotted, stopped, and those inside were held at gunpoint. One was in the trunk area of a Honda hatchback. Inside two replica weapons were found, resembling black

handguns.

Several articles of clothing were recovered with store tags and were collected as evidence.

Police say they received a 911 call about someone displaying or brandishing a gun in the La Cumbre Plaza parking lot. The vehicle with the suspect and others was spotted nearby, leaving and going west on State Street.

Sewage Spill Leads to Butterfly Beach Closure

MONDAY, MARCH 20TH: Over the weekend you may have seen the big red signs on the entrance points to Montecito’s Butterfly Beach with a Santa Barbara County Public Health Department warning.

A “Beach Closure” for all recreational water contact was issued within one-

quarter mile of the storm drain outfall.

Untreated sewage reached the ocean from a broken sewer main pipeline. Repair crews were out over the weekend.

The Montecito Sanitary District made the notification and said 6,650 gallons of sewage was released before it was stopped. The affected area had sewage-contaminated water.

TUESDAY, MARCH 21ST: Fierce morning winds sent many trees down along the coast in and around Santa Barbara, knocking out power, and shutting down Santa Barbara City College.

The impacts were widespread and included a giant eucalyptus tree that tore through power lines on Loma Alta Drive,

shutting that street down and sending Santa Barbara City College into darkness. Classes were either cancelled or delivered online.

Shoreline Park had another large tree fall near a popular walking path, just steps away from a site where two massive trees went down last month. A bench to view the ocean was twisted up in the branches. For more, visit tinyurl.com/pry7sfjn

Burglary Spree Suspect Caught

SUNDAY, MARCH 19TH: Multiple charges are expected to be filed after a burglary spree on the Santa Barbara Eastside Sunday morning around Milpas and Ortega St. It involved breaking in to two vehicles, some commercial businesses, and vandalism. Many items were disrupted. The suspect is a 37-year old transient.

One property owner said his storage building was trashed and fire extinguishers were all shot off.

Another person said his vehicle was moved from where it was parked and items were taken out. The motive is not known. It took several officers to surround the property and find the suspect in the rain.

The suspect was barely responsive and covered in some kind of paint type substances.

Brasscals BRINGS Jazz Beats to SB Streets

WHEN JAZZ MUSIC COMES SKIPPING DOWN THE STREETS OF SANTA BARBARA, keep your eyes and ears open for the Brasscals. The Brasscals are a woodwind, percussion, and brass street band formed in 2022 by cofounders Maria Cincotta and Antoine Descos, who wanted to combine their musical backgrounds as a group. They are always looking for new jazzy souls to join their ensemble.

“It’s been a great experience,” said Cincotta. “It’s a pleasure and a privilege to work with such diverse people.”

Cincotta, a long-time musician and multi-instrumentalist, leads the band. She primarily plays alto saxophone for Brasscals but is also an experienced bass guitar and synth player. While no specific level of skill is required to play with Brasscals, due to their increased popularity, they want to be able to promise a consistent show for fans.

Potential members are first considered on whether there is already a person playing the same instrument as them in order to ensure that certain instruments are not overrepresented in their combined sound.

Right now, they are in need of people who can play low brass instruments such as trombones, baritone saxophones, or tubas. After that, players are able to join in a threerehearsal trial run where their musical ability is evaluated along with their overall fit with the band.

When Brasscals began, they practiced outside at Alameda Park, which Cincottta mentioned allowed people in town to happen upon them organically. They now practice once a week on Thursdays evenings for two-hour sessions. There is an expectation that people practice alone outside of rehearsals, and they have sheet music posted online for members to look at, but people who can’t read sheet music should not be immediately deterred by that. Though Cincotta leads the band, she has historically done so by ear rather than by sheet. She is currently enrolled in a class at SBCC to strengthen her skill at sight reading so that she can be a better leader of the group.

Brasscals have not yet released any original songs, but new content is in the works. Members are encouraged to write, arrange, and bring their own music for the group to perform. They are also experimenting with incorporating singers into their group. They also pride themselves on the group’s inclusivity and diversity.

Musicians interested in joining the Brasscals should contact the band directly at brasscals@riseup.net. Brasscals also has two shows coming up this week. On Friday, March 24th, they will be at Stik N Stuk (118 A Gray Avenue in the Funk Zone) from 8pm to 10pm. On Sunday, March 26th, they perform at SB Cider Co. (325 Rutherford Street, Suite D, Goleta) from 5pm to 7pm

Of their 13 members, age ranges from 19 to a person in their 80s. They also have members who identify within the LGBTQ+ community, and from different countries around the world.

“Music has the power to bring people together,” said Cincotta. “There’s no need for being exclusive in your identity. Our collective humanity unites us.” Locally, Brasscals has performed at locations such as the Tully, SoHo, Revolver Pizza, and Institution Ale. They also have plans for a monthly residency show at the collaborative artists’ workshop, Stik N Stuk, in the Funk Zone. The future holds great potential for the Brasscals. As they become more recognized, and as the band grows closer in cohesion, the opportunity to expand their reach and spread their sound grows with them. Seattle, WA hosts a threeday brass street band festival called HONK! Fest West, and Cincotta hopes to take the Brasscals there to perform. Cincotta also hopes to call upon some of her musical networks to take the Brasscals to Los Angeles and to try and plan a European tour by the Summer of 2024.

“Brasscals is a fun band for the community,” said Cincotta. “We’re very happy to be part of the music scene here.”

6.2 Rates. The prevailing rates are on file with City and are available online at http://www.dir.ca.gov/DLSR. Each Contractor and Subcontractor must pay no less than the specified rates to all workers employed to work on the Project. The schedule of per diem wages is based upon a working day of eight hours. The rate for holiday and overtime work must be at least time and one-half. Pursuant to Section 1773 of the Labor Code, the general prevailing wage rates in the county in which the work is to be done have been determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations. These wages are set forth in the General Prevailing Wage Rates for this Project, available at the City of Santa Barbara, General Services Manager, Purchasing Office, 310 E. Ortega Street, Santa Barbara, California, and available from the California Department of Industrial Relations’ Internet web site at http:// www.dir.ca.gov/DLSR/PWD.

Attention is directed to the Federal minimum wage rate requirements in the specifications. If there is a difference between the minimum wage rates predetermined by the Secretary of Labor and the general prevailing wage rates determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations for similar classifications of labor, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the higher wage rate. The City of Santa Barbara will not accept lower State wage rates not specifically included in the Federal minimum wage determinations. This includes

“helper” (or other classifications based on hours of experience) or any other classification not appearing in the Federal wage determinations. Where Federal wage determinations do not contain the State wage rate determination otherwise available for use by the Contractor and subcontractors, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the Federal minimum wage rate, which most closely approximates the duties of the employees in question. Federal wage determinations issued under the Davis-Bacon and related Acts are available electronically at no cost at Wage Determinations OnLine.gov, http://www.wdol.gov/ Index.aspx.

This is a federally-assisted project and Davis-Bacon (DBRA) requirements will be strictly enforced. The Federal Contract Provisions will be incorporated into the successful bidder’s contract as applicable and are attached hereto as “Special Conditions Part 1 - Federal Contract Provisions for FAA AIP Projects.” Contractors, including all subcontractors and apprentices, must be eligible to participate. Actual prevailing wage rates will be determined as of the bid opening date. If any modifications have been issued to the wage decision, the contractor must adhere to the modified wage decision.

6.3 Compliance. The Contract will be subject to compliance monitoring and enforcement by the DIR, under Labor Code § 1771.4., and the Federal Contract Provisions for AIP Funded Projects, and the Federal Aviation Administration Advisory Circular 150-5370-10H.

7. Performance and Payment Bonds. The successful bidder will be required to provide performance and payment bonds, each for 100% of the Contract Price, as further specified in the Contract Documents.

8. Substitution of Securities. Substitution of appropriate securities in lieu of retention amounts from progress payments is permitted under Public Contract Code § 22300.

9. Subcontractor List. Each Subcontractor must be registered with the DIR to perform work on public projects. Each bidder must submit a completed Subcontractor List form with its Bid Proposal, including the name, location of the place of business, California contractor license number, DIR registration number, and percentage of the Work to be performed (based on the base bid price) for each Subcontractor that will perform Work or service or fabricate or install Work for the prime contractor in excess of one-half of 1% of the bid price, using the Subcontractor List form included with the Contract Documents.

10. Instructions to Bidders. All bidders should carefully review the Instructions to Bidders for more detailed information before submitting a Bid Proposal. The definitions provided in Article 1 of the General Conditions apply to all of the Contract Documents, as defined therein, including this Notice Inviting Bids.

11. Disadvantaged Business Enterprise: Bidders are advised that, as required by federal law, the State has established a statewide overall Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) goal. This Agency federal-aid contract is considered to be part of the statewide overall DBE goal. The Agency is required to report to Caltrans on DBE participation for

all federal aid contracts each year so that attainment efforts may be evaluated. This agency federal aid contract has a goal of 1.0% DBE participation.

12. Bidders’ Conference. A bidders’ conference will be held on March 28 , 2023, at 10:00am (PST), at the following location: Santa Barbara Municipal Airport 601 Firestone Road, Santa Barbara, CA 93117 to acquaint all prospective bidders with the Contract Documents and the Worksite.

(1) NOTICE OF REQUIREMENT FOR AFFIRMATIVE ACTION TO ENSURE EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY

A. The Offeror’s or Bidder’s attention is called to the “Equal Opportunity Clause” and the “Standard Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Construction Contract Specifications” set forth herein.

B. The goals and timetables for minority and female participation, expressed in percentage terms for the Contractor’s aggregate workforce in each trade on all construction work in the covered area, are as follows:

Timetables

Goals for minority participation for each trade: 19.7%

Goals for female participation in each trade: 6.9%

These goals are applicable to all of the Contractor’s construction work (whether or not it is Federal or federally assisted) performed in the covered area. If the Contractor performs construction work in a geographical area located outside of the covered area, it shall apply the goals established for such geographical area where the work is actually performed. With regard to this second area, the Contractor also is subject to the goals for both its federally involved and nonfederally involved construction.

The Contractor’s compliance with the Executive Order and the regulations in 41 CFR Part 60-4 shall be based on its implementation of the Equal Opportunity Clause, specific affirmative action obligations required by the specifications set forth in 41 CFR 60-4.3(a) and its efforts to meet the goals. The hours of minority and female employment and training must be substantially uniform throughout the length of the contract, and in each trade, and the Contractor shall make a good faith effort to employ minorities and women evenly on each of its projects. The transfer of minority or female employees or trainees from Contractor to Contractor or from project to project for the sole purpose of meeting the Contractor’s goals shall be a violation of the contract, the Executive Order and the regulations in 41 CFR Part 60-4. Compliance with the goals will be measured against the total work hours performed.

C. The Contractor shall provide written notification to the Director of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) within 10 working days of award of any construction subcontract

in excess of $10,000 at any tier for construction work under the contract resulting from this solicitation. The notification shall list the name, address, and telephone number of the subcontractor; employer identification number of the subcontractor; estimated dollar amount of the subcontract; estimated starting and completion dates of the subcontract; and the geographical area in which the subcontract is to be performed.

D. As used in this notice and in the contract resulting from this solicitation, the “covered area” is City of Santa Barbara, County of Santa Barbara, State of California.

(2) CIVIL RIGHTS – TITLE VI ASSURANCE

The CITY of SANTA BARBARA, in accordance with the provisions of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (78 Stat. 252, 42 USC §§ 2000d to 2000d-4) and the Regulations, hereby notifies all bidders or offerors that it will affirmatively ensure that for any contract entered into pursuant to this advertisement disadvantaged business enterprises will be afforded full and fair opportunity to submit bids in response to this invitation and no businesses will be discriminated against on the grounds of race, color, national origin (including limited English proficiency), creed, sex (including sexual orientation and gender identity), age, or disability in consideration for an award.

(3) DISADVANTAGED BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (DBE)

1) The names and addresses of Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) firms that will participate in the contract;

6) If Bidder or Offeror cannot meet the advertised project DBE goal, evidence of good faith efforts undertaken by the Bidder or Offeror as described in appendix A to 49 CFR part 26. The documentation of good faith efforts must include copies of each DBE and non-DBE subcontractor quote submitted to the bidder when a non-DBE subcontractor was selected over a DBE for work on the contract.

(4) FEDERAL FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT (FEDERAL MINIMUM WAGE)

All contracts and subcontracts that result from this solicitation incorporate by reference the provisions of 29 CFR part 201, et seq, the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), with the same force and effect as if given in full text. The FLSA sets minimum wage,

Continued

overtime pay, recordkeeping, and child labor standards for full and part-time workers.

The Contractor has full responsibility to monitor compliance to the referenced statute or regulation. The Contractor must address any claims or disputes that arise from this requirement directly with the U.S. Department of Labor – Wage and Hour Division.

(5) FOREIGN TRADE RESTRICTION CERTIFICATION

By submission of an offer, the Offeror certifies that with respect to this solicitation and any resultant contract, the Offeror –

1) is not owned or controlled by one or more citizens of a foreign country included in the list of countries that discriminate against U.S. firms as published by the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR);

2) has not knowingly entered into any contract or subcontract for this project with a person that is a citizen or national of a foreign country included on the list of countries that discriminate against U.S. firms as published by the USTR; and

3) has not entered into any subcontract for any product to be used on the Federal project that is produced in a foreign country included on the list of countries that discriminate against U.S. firms published by the USTR.

This certification concerns a matter within the jurisdiction of an agency of the United States of America and the making of a false, fictitious, or fraudulent certification may render the maker subject to prosecution under Title 18 USC § 1001.

The Offeror/Contractor must provide immediate written notice to the Owner if the Offeror/Contractor learns that its certification or that of a subcontractor was erroneous when submitted or has become erroneous by reason of changed circumstances. The Contractor must require subcontractors provide immediate written notice to the Contractor if at any time it learns that its certification was erroneous by reason of changed circumstances.

Unless the restrictions of this clause are waived by the Secretary of Transportation in accordance with 49 CFR § 30.17, no contract shall be awarded to an Offeror or subcontractor:

1) who is owned or controlled by one or more citizens or nationals of a foreign country included on the list of countries that discriminate against U.S. firms published by the USTR; or

2) whose subcontractors are owned or controlled by one or more citizens or nationals of a foreign country on such USTR list; or

3) who incorporates in the public works project any product of a foreign country on such USTR list. Nothing contained in the foregoing shall be construed to require establishment of a system of records in order to render, in good faith, the certification required by this provision. The knowledge and information of a contractor is not required to exceed that which is normally possessed by a prudent person in the ordinary course of business dealings.

Tree-of-the-Month, March 2023

Pink Trumpet Tree

Handroanthus heptaphyllus

THE PINK TRUMPET TREE’S BRIGHT FLORAL

DISPLAY is simply stunning. From late March through May – depending on the weather and when the tree is otherwise bare of leaves – its startlingly pink to magenta flowers bloom in great abundance, absolutely covering the entire canopy.

Surprisingly, this remarkable tree was relatively unknown in the Santa Barbara community, until about 50 years ago when it began to be planted here as a standout ornamental in private gardens and public landscapes.

Its brilliant flowers appear on terminal panicles, in clusters of three, with several clusters per panicle. Each flower is trumpet-shaped (up to three inches long and two inches wide) with a white to yellow throat interior that opens to reveal deep magenta stripes. Each flower is “perfect,” which means it holds both male and female reproductive parts. The flowers are eagerly pollinated by bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. After pollination, the flowers develop into long green seed pods (five to 20 inches long and ½ to one inch wide). When mature, the pods turn brown and split open lengthwise; each pod then releases up to 150 winged seeds! The seeds are dispersed by the wind and will germinate easily, provided they are planted within two weeks of dispersal.

The ovate- to elliptical-shaped leaves are palmately compound, each with five to seven leaflets radiating outward from a central point. The terminal leaflet is the longest (up to eight inches long and two inches wide), while the lateral ones are progressively smaller; the petiolules (leaflet stems) are short (½ to 1½ inches long). The shiny bright green leaves are thin, with finely serrated edges; the underside of the leaves bear fine hairs on the axils of the veins.

When the tree is young, its bark is beige-gray and smooth; as it matures, the bark turns a darker brown-gray and will be rough with deep fissures.

Pink Trumpet is a small- to medium-sized tree, reaching a height of 25 to 35 feet with a spread of 20 to 30 feet. When young, it has an open and sometimes asymmetrical growth habit that can require staking and pruning to give it a good branch structure; as it matures, it develops a rounded crown. Depending on the microclimate where it is growing, it can be either deciduous or semi-deciduous. It is a slow-growing tree but long-lived. While it does not bloom as a young tree, the wait for several years is well worth the time and effort.

In California, this lovely tree has always been known by the common name of Pink Trumpet Tree and was traditionally sold under the botanical name of Tabebuia impediginosa. However, this formal name has been changed many times over the last 50 years, leading to some confusion in the horticultural literature and in the minds of tree lovers! In the future, further genetic testing and analysis will likely change its name yet again.

The most currently accepted botanical name for the Pink Trumpet Tree species that has been planted in the Santa Barbara area is Handroanthus heptophyllus. The genus name, Handroanthus, combines the name of the Brazilian botanist Oswaldo Handro (1908-1986) with the Latin name for a flower, “anthos”. The specific epithet, heptophyllus, comes from the Greek words “hepta,” meaning “seven,” and “phyllis,” meaning “foliage,” and refers to the seven leaflets forming each compound leaf.

Handroanthus heptophyllus is endemic to the high forest watersheds in Paraguay, Uruguay, Bolivia, and Brazil, where it is commonly named “Black Lapacho.” In 2012, it was formally designated as the national tree of Paraguay.

The wood from this species (and from other closely related trees) is commonly called ipe wood. It is very hard and has a dense weatherproof grain that turns dark when exposed to air. Since ipe wood is extremely strong and resistant to decay and insects, it is often used for all types of construction, including that of boats, docks, decks, floors, stairs, and beams. It is favored by woodworkers who turn it on lathes into beautiful bowls. The bark and leaves have antibiotic and disinfectant properties and, in the tree’s native areas, have been used in

traditional herbal medicine; warning, they can be toxic, if not processed properly.

The Pink Trumpet tree should be planted in full sun and preferably in deep well-drained sandy loam soil. It does require some regular irrigation during the dry season. When young, it is frost sensitive; when mature, it can withstand brief temperatures of 20 degrees F. It seems to grow and bloom better in locations with hotter temperatures. Its firm roots and solid wood help it withstand strong winds.

The Pink Trumpet Tree is useful as a specimen ornamental and as a tree to attract and support beneficial pollinators. This relatively rare tree is a delightful addition to diversify our urban forest – and should planted much more frequently in local private gardens and public landscapes.

Mature Pink Trumpet Trees can be seen in several public locations in our community: there are two in Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden; two in Plaza Vera Cruz Park; several in the 500 and 1200 blocks of State Street; two at the southwest corner of the County Court House grounds in a group along with a Golden Trumpet Tree; and a large specimen in the 2000 block of Chino Street.

Tree-of-the-Month articles are sponsored by Santa Barbara Beautiful, whose mission includes increasing public awareness and appreciation of Santa Barbara’s many outstanding trees and, in a long-time partnership with the City Parks & Recreation Department, the funding and planting of trees along the City’s streets. Those who wish to honor a special someone can do so with an attractive commemorative marker that will be installed at the base of an existing street tree in the City of Santa Barbara. Because Santa Barbara Beautiful has participated in the planting to date of over 13,000 street trees, there are plenty of trees from which to choose!

Drawn By A Lady

FLORA as enchanting as it is educational awaits Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History visitors this Women’s History Month. Vibrant lilies, dignified orchids, and illustrations of caterpillars that capture the most minute details serve as testimony to the remarkable achievements of their artists — all women who studied botany despite the oppressive social conventions of the 19th century.

Now, long after these women had to publish their art with their husbands’ names or anonymously, locals can finally appreciate their legacies with the exhibition Drawn By A Lady

“I want viewers to, foremost, appreciate the beauty of the art they made,” said Linda Miller, John & Peggy Maximus Gallery Curator. “And secondly, to realize that they made it at a time when they had little recourse to go very far with it, there were such limitations.”

Miller first grew inspired to curate Drawn by a Lady last fall, when a community member donated a series of engravings by 19th-century botanical illustrator Priscilla Susan Bury. Eager for a new opportunity to highlight women artists, Miller began conducting research on the scientific and social spheres of Victorian England. Technology quickly became her friend as she explored digitized versions of out-ofcopyright manuscripts.

“A lot of things have come to light that weren’t known about the eight women that I profiled, but also a lot of other people that we didn’t know about,” explained Miller. “Library research has really changed the perspective on early botanical illustrations by women.”

Gallery visitors are greeted by a bouquet of magnificent plant life, from boldly colored flowers such as scarlet amaryllis to fruit and nut-bearing plants such as the tamarind

tree. There are even dainty drawings of flowers indigenous to the Santa Barbara area by early 20th-century artist Margaret Ely Webb.

Details remain the primary focus of the over 40 works displayed, with penciled captions and labels reminding viewers that as lovely as these illustrations are, their artists created them with clear, scientific goals in mind.

In reading the gallery’s informative placards, visitors learn that botany was initially considered an “appropriate” accomplishment for women in the 18th century. This entailed activities such as drawing, basic Latin, and flower pressing. However, when scientists began to discuss the reproductive aspects of plants, the sexual nature moved it to the “inappropriate” category for women.

“This was at a time when women were varying between nine to ten children and yet they couldn’t learn about the reproductive parts of flowers,” laughed Miller.

Later, the reign of Queen Victoria and the Industrial Revolution shifted the social landscape, as women were charged with acting as homemakers while men were instructed to work. Gardens, flowers, and botany were once again considered “appropriate” for women to pursue, but in limited capacities.

The eight women represented in Drawn By A Lady emphasize the valuable contributions of women who defied social conventions through their art. For instance, Maria Sibylla Merian was one of the first scientists to study and understand the metamorphosis of caterpillars. Her studies of tropical plant and insect life were vastly influential to Carl Linnaeus, who formalized taxonomy.

Additional artists include Jane Webb Loudon, Elizabeth Twining, Anne Pratt, Sarah Ann Drake, Augusta Innes Withers, and Elizabeth Blackwell. While their individual

works vary in style and focus, viewed together they paint a comprehensive picture of women’s determination and talent.

Soft classical music underscores the exhibition’s goal, featuring works composed by 19th-century women composers Clara Schumann and Fanny Mendelssohn. Visitors are left with an engaging experience that delivers these women trailblazers to the spotlight they deserve.

The exhibition will remain on display through July 2nd in The John & Peggy Maximus Gallery.

The SB Museum of Natural History is open 10am to 5pm, Wednesday through Monday. For tickets visit www.sbnature.org

Local Grant

Opportunity

Supports Development of Art Driven Campaigns

23 AWARDS OF $140,000 ARE NOW AVAILABLE to Central Coast 501c3 nonprofits, tribal governments, and government agencies thanks to the launch of the Central Coast Creative Corps (CCCC) Program. Recently announced by the Santa Barbara County Office of Arts and Culture, this new grant opportunity will allow organizations to hire local artists to develop art-driven campaigns supporting the areas of public health, climate resilience/emergency preparedness, civic engagement, or social justice.

Applications are due by May 1st, with free, online informational workshops due to be hosted on March 29th and April 13th. Workshop registration and more information can be accessed at www.sbac.ca.gov/creative-corps

“Artists are change agents, helping us to imagine different perspectives and experiences through their work,” said Sarah York Rubin, Office of Arts and Culture Executive Director. “By bringing artists to the community development table, this program invites everyone to create new approaches for understanding and caring for ourselves, each other, and the environment.”

The pilot program is funded by the California Arts Council, and provides organizations $100,000 to compensate an artist for work on the initiative, with $20,000 allocated for artist-community engagement, including art supplies and materials. $20,000 goes to the organization for program administration. Priority will go to organizations serving communities that demonstrate the highest levels of need, as indicated by the CA Healthy Places Index.

Applicants must commit to collaborating with an artist or culture bearer for a one-year period from September 2023 to August 2024, with an additional three-month period required for project exploration and design. Applicants do not need to have a project or artist identified, as projects will be facilitated after funding is awarded. www.sbac.ca.gov/creative-corps

Conference: Listening to Cumbia 2023
