March 4, 2022 improve community. This approach has been effective in bringing about societal transformations and I take that lesson to heart. We may look at our elected officials and others in the systems who hold decision-making power and wonder why more has not happened. I know that is not enough. It takes community to be making the overwhelming shift in society required to ensure that the systems are moving to a better place for us all.

SB FILMMAKER SHORT SPOTLIGHT

Grandes Horizontales

S

By Daisy Scott, VOICE

HEDDING NEW LIGHT ON THE LASTING INFLUENCE OF THE COURTESANS OF FRANCE’S SECOND EMPIRE, Grandes Horizontales explores the drama, wealth, and lifestyles of some of history’s most fascinating yet misunderstood women. A 45 minutes-long documentary written and directed by Leslie Zemeckis, and produced by Robert Zemeckis, the film’s world premiere will be a part of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Santa Barbara Filmmaker Shorts, hosted at Metro Theatre #3 at 8:40pm Friday, March 4th. “We forget, or we don’t know, that these women were actually the pop stars of their day,” explained Leslie Zemeckis. “They were the celebrities; they were written about in all the papers; they influenced fashion. They Film writer and director weren’t quite so much in the shadows as they have been Leslie Zemeckis portrayed, they were very visible in society and it was one of the only ways a woman not born to a certain class and stature could rise. At the time, women could not get divorced, they could not own property — their husbands did, or their fathers did — but these women could.” An author, actress, and award-winning documentarian, Zemeckis’ previous films include Bound by Flesh, Behind the Burly Q, and Mabel, Mabel Tiger Trainer. On a local level, she partners with SBIFF to offer its Stories Matter programming, which provides free writing guidance to women ages 18 to 30 to support them in telling their stories. Zemeckis has long been fascinated by the history of the Second Empire’s courtesans. She especially felt that it was unfair that these women have been consistently dismissed as greedy despite their social surroundings and important role in inspiring so many artists and writers. In preparing to create Grandes Horizontales, she conducted extensive research, exploring old newspapers, historic and current books, visiting art museums, and even conducting some research in France. To support her hometown, she also aimed to include as much local talent as possible within the filmmaking process, including the film’s editor, a musician, and former Teen Idol Sofia Schuster, who sings a song in the film. Now, as SBIFF attendees anticipate Friday’s screening of Grandes Horizontales, Zemeckis is excited to host its world premiere at SBIFF. “I think it just brings so much to Santa Barbara, as it’s on the cusp and on the edge of culture and what we do here,” shared Zemeckis.

Y FRIENDS, I was planning on writing today about a few museum exhibitions I’ve seen recently in LA and thought you would enjoy them as much as I did. But now, with the world turning upside down, I’m thinking about the one and only Wende Museum in Culver City, which specializes in the history of the Cold War in Eastern Europe and the former USSR.

Wende Museum’s Letter About The Tragic Events in Ukraine

As a Jewish emigrant from the Soviet Union, I particularly appreciate Wende’s challenging exhibitions informing all of us about the complicated history and culture of the Cold War. With the tragic events unfolding in Ukraine, writing about the Russian invasion was on my mind. However yesterday, I received a very poignant letter from Justinian Jampol, Executive Director of the Wende Museum. He addressed Justinian Jampol, Executive Director of The Wende Museum his deeply personal letter to the Wende Community, which under current circumstances, we should all consider ourselves to be part of. So, at this point, I want to share his eloquent letter with you… Dear Wende Community, As a museum that specializes in the history of the Cold War in Eastern Europe and the former USSR, I have often been asked “why does it matter?” After all, the Cold War is a geopolitical conflict that was supposed to have ended more than thirty years ago. In a world that is constantly changing, the Wende Museum, named for a German word that means “change,” history is always in the process of being made. Like so many historians, I extolled the virtues of preserving the past in order to inform the present. Those very words have headlined the Museum’s homepage for the past ten years. And of course, that old adage sprouted up from time to time, “those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.” But what was until a short time ago a conceptual argument about the importance of studying our collective history is no longer an intellectual exercise. It is now a harsh reality with real lives at stake.

Pavel Bondarenko Lenin Monument, 1954

As Russian tanks descend on the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv, many remember painful memories of the Soviet occupation of Hungary in 1956, Czechoslovakia in 1968, and more. Ukraine itself has been the victim at many points in its long history, including the Great Famine in the 1930s, known as the Holodomor, caused by the policies of Joseph Stalin, which resulted in millions of deaths. For me, the events in Ukraine are personal. My last name, Jampol, is the name of a Ukrainian village where my ancestors escaped following the pogroms of the early 20th century. Like so many other cities and regions in Ukraine, that little village is now a war zone. In addition to being a tragedy on a grand scale, the attack on Ukraine is a reminder that history is not a collection of old and dusty objects. It is, among other things, the individual and collective memories of those who have witnessed and experienced moments that have changed the course of history. And history is now. All of us at the Wende Museum are anxiously watching events halfway around the world and stand in solidarity with the democratically-elected government of Ukraine. Over the coming weeks, we hope you will commune with us as we explore the present moment in the broader context of the Cold War and grieve for the victims of military aggression.

Alexander Lozenko Monument, 1991

мир і любов, Justinian Jampol I would guess that not many of you can translate the Ukrainian words “мир і любов” that Justinian used to close his letter. Here is my translation for you, “Peace and Love.” So, my friends, let’s hope and pray for peace and justice.

Bill Aron Simchat Torah Archipova St. Moscow, 1981

P.S. A few months ago, I wrote about the Wende Museum’s current exhibition, Questionable History, in my newsletter. I highly recommend that you see this timely and important exhibition, which runs through March 20th.

For a song about death (at that we were witnessing something epic. Kent State), it made for a perfect finale to a super-lively night of music.

There was some crossover of songs from that intimate setting and the fuller 400 Unit models, including the personalized Dreamsicle and Cover Me Up, about life governed by demon rum. With his solid band, featuring the wizardly guitarist Sadler Vaden (sometimes playing a Telecaster with a b-string bender), Isbell seizes the flexibility of the band format to riveting and varied ends. Echoes of Dylan, Springsteen, and fellow Southerner Tom Petty ring out over the course of a set, but he also trumps comparisons through a certain distinctive Isbell sound of his own. He reminded us again of his command as an electric guitar soloist, with a particularly wicked way on slide guitar. Isbell and company drew on a wide repertoire, including the charged-up Super 8, and the poignant Last of My Kind, If We Were Vampires, and Only Children.

REVIEW: UCSB Arts & Lectures

Roxane with One N

AVIGATING NUANCED SUBJECTS WITH GREAT WIT, CANDOR, AND INSIGHTFULNESS, critically-acclaimed author Roxane Gay provided locals with an unforgettable night of laughter and reflection at the Granada Theatre on Friday, February 25th. Presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures, Gay shared her extraordinary ability to blend humor with commentary while directly engaging with the audience. This created a positive atmosphere for tackling difficult truths head-on, while also celebrating our collective humanity. One of the leading feminist voices of our age, Gay is best known for her book of essays, Bad Feminist, and Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, where she speaks to her experiences as a sexual assault survivor. She was also the first Black woman to write for Marvel Comics, and cohosts the podcast Hear to Slay. Gay began the evening on a comedic note, reading aloud a dramatized food journal she recorded for her underweight dog, Maximus Toretto Blueberry, as she and her wife desperately tried to make him eat. The Granada Theatre erupted in laughter throughout her reading as she recounted Maximus’ rejection of overpriced dog food and steaks in favor of sidewalk garbage and their cat’s litter. Maintaining her cool, polished tone, Gay seamlessly followed up this hilarious story with an essay addressing the serious topics of ethical consumption and censorship. Starting with commentary on how capitalism has made individuals feel that their dollars are worth more than their votes, Gay crafted a powerful argument on the issue she called “censorship versus curation.” Calling for

Joe Rogan and his misinformative podcast to be removed from Spotify, for instance, is not censorship — it is holding a visible individual accountable and to a higher standard of truth. She concluded the essay by emphasizing that many of the people who point to free speech when Rogan is challenged are the same individuals who try to ban books and remove critical race theory from schools. “The people who love misinformation can’t stand ugly truth,” stated Gay. Gay returned to humor for her final reading, an essay titled, “The Pleasure of Clapping Back.” Speaking as if she was discussing a great love, Gay spoke to the enjoyment she derives from having ten nemeses that range from individuals who have Roxane Gay reading from the Granada Theatre stage wronged her to CrossFit.

REVIEW: Westmont’s The Miser

Hilarity & Commentary

MERGING FROM A TRAP DOOR BENEATH A PAPIER MÂCHÉ TREE, HARPAGON, THE MISER, CLUTCHES HER BELOVED MONEY BOX. Sharing a delightfully conspiratorial look with the audience, she rushes off, launching the beginning of Westmont College’s reimagination of Moliere’s play The Miser, or the School for Lies. Playing at Porter Theatre through Saturday, March 5th, director John Blondell’s production enhances this iconic play’s classic themes while redefining the timeless nature of theater. A witty satirical comedy from 1668, Moliere’s play comments on France’s shifting social lines and wealth (and greed) of the upper classes. Rather than solely focus on the play’s historical roots, however, Westmont’s production emphasizes the play’s universal messages by refreshing characters’ comments with modern references, such as iPhones and celebrities. These additions, combined with the audience’s seating on stage mere feet from the actors, fully immerse viewers in the story unfolding before them. The play focuses on Harpagon (Rory Nguyen), a wealthy old woman whose greed surpasses her love for her children. This becomes immediately apparent as her children, Cleante (Alaina Dean) and Elise (Joel Michelson) furtively plot how they can realize their romantic dreams. Elise wants to marry Valere (Emiliana Brewer), a servant working within Harpagon’s house, while Cleante wishes to marry their neighbor, Marianne (Noah Nims). Yet all of these hopes are dashed when Harpagon announces that Elise will marry Anselme (Emily Derr), while she will be marrying Marianne herself — for money, of course. Hilarity and social commentary abound in the following acts, as the young lovers seek the help of friends

and form increasingly ridiculous plots. In an innovative move that arguably improves the play for modern audiences, Westmont’s production switches the genders assigned to characters in the original text. This not only subverts the patriarchal norms of Moliere’s day, but allows audiences to fully appreciate the absurdity of characters’ desires to control others, without being enraged by the historical reality that men can and do seek control over female peers. And, by having female characters Ford Sachsenmaier (in back), Rory Nguyen, Noah Nims, and Alaina Dean in The Miser speak lines originally meant to demean women, another layer of and cook. Ash Vanyo, Juliana Moore, Ciena Fitzgerald, and satire emerges. Claire Bassett complete Harpagon’s eclectic household staff Each of the performers embodies their roles with and cement the production’s vibrancy. humor, conviction, and talent.

Cleante and Elise to shine through. As Valere, Brewer Lynne Martens’ costume design also supports efforts to portrays a woman determined to pursue her love and modernize the play, with characters wearing striped suits, escape her social class. Nims consistently maintains bejeweled vests, and more as matches to their personalities.

Is Artificial Intelligence improving our Lives? Consider the monitoring devices of today, such as the Fitbit and the Apple Watch. Nonjudgmental, available on demand, and endlessly patient, these devices contain an infallible record of our biometric data. Right now, many users don’t take full advantage of all of the potential benefits these devices can offer. They might only utilize them to monitor their health goals – to help them assess whether they are getting better REM-sleep or walking a certain number of steps per day. But this only represents a tiny sliver of what’s possible when it comes to AI’s fullrange of capabilities.

HAT MANY PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE is that we are on the verge of a paradigmatic shift in thinking on par with the Copernican Revolution. The way we make our most personal decisions – from our partners, to our health choices, to yes, even our daily routines – will transform due to the falling cost of data storage and everincreasing computing power. In the future, Artificial Intelligence (AI) will advise us how to structure our days for the most fulfilling life. It will literally tell us what to do for optimal living.

Learn how to use wearable devices like watches to monitor and adjust your exercise, sleep, and daily event goals

Predictive analytics is the use of data, statistical algorithms, and machinelearning techniques to identify the likelihood of future outcomes based on historical data. The goal is to go beyond knowing what has happened to provide a best assessment of what will happen in the future. Certainly, it might seem odd to turn to a computer to tell us how to live a better life, but there is precedent behind this notion. Our internet browsing can predict many, if not all, of our interests which myriad companies have been exploiting for years and the AI-based traffic app Waze uses data to tell us which route we should take. Similarly, dating sites like Match. com and eHarmony rely on algorithms

backed by Big Data to determine romantic matches rather than something as analog as butterflies in the stomach.

How can we begin to explore AI for our “daily routines,” embrace the technology, and not let it overrun our lives? A few possibilities: • Personalize your smartphone to help schedule and organize your day, week, month and set the notifications for the time frame you need ahead of time. • Use the “Do not Disturb” options on the device when you want less digital interruption. • Learn how to use wearable devices like watches to monitor and adjust your exercise, sleep, and daily event goals. • For health issues, such as diabetes or cardiac issues, request from your doctor smart devices to monitor your status and treatment remotely.

ROUTINE

LIFE to be our privilege — and our burden — as thinking carbon-based creatures. The growing power of AI may improve our quality of life and just might bring us greater balance, meaning, and happiness. No matter how many technological advances we live to see, we’d be wise to recognize Socrates’ timeless words: “to find yourself, think for yourself.” ** Dr. Iscovich serves as Chair of the Board of Directors of Potentia Analytics a Healthcare AI company

The above suggestions will not replace our search for meaning – the never-ending struggle to gain knowledge and wisdom through experience and introspection. Regardless, we will not be able to abdicate our duties to ourselves or completely allow the artificial mind to steer the ship. Certainly, technology is no panacea for all of the problems we face as a society and as people. Technology will continue

State Street Ballet to present the timeless Sleeping Beauty

Dance for the Entire Family

Photos by Andre Yew

ITH ENCHANTMENT, A 15 FOOT DRAGON, AND A LIVELY SENSE OF DRAMA, State Street Ballet will present the next chapter in their Family Series repertoire with a new, modern take on a favorite fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty., Set for performances on the Granada stage on March 5th at 7:30pm and 6th at 2pm, it is their newest story ballet. “Romantically reflecting the cycle of the seasons, the ballet is an allegory of life itself.” Set to Tchaikovsky’s score performed by Opera San Luis Obispo Grand Orchestra, 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. The company’s Professional Track trainees, as well as students from State Street Ballet Academy (formerly Gustafson Dance), join the ensemble’s professional dancers to fill Sleeping Beauty’s 86 character roles. The story of Princess Aurora and her handsome prince is told through original choreography by Marina Fliagina, Cecily MacDougall, and Megan Philipp based on the original by Marius Petipa, and features a cast of characters ranging from Carabosse and her dragon to Little Red Riding Hood, Puss in Boots and the White Cat, and more. 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. The role of Princess Aurora will be danced by Deise Mendonça, with guest artist Aaron Smyth, who recently finished a tour of Billy Elliot the Musical in its 10th Anniversary Tour of Australia, in the role of Prince Florimund. Other featured roles include Arianna Hartanov as Carabosse; Sergei Domrachev as Catalabutte; Marika Kobayashi as Princess Florine; Harold Mendez as Bluebird; and Amara Galloway as Little Red Riding Hood.

Arianna Hartanov as Carabosse

There are 43 students from State Street Ballet Academy in this production. For tickets ($26-$106) visit www.granadasb.org or call The Granada box office at 805.899.2222. The live performance season will close at the Lobero Theatre with a Gala Performance (Saturday, April 30th at 7:30pm) honoring the legacies of Léni Fé Bland and Michael Towbes, and the major contributions of Margo Cohen-Feinberg, Tim Mikel, Sara Miller McCune, and Carrie Towbes to the arts in Santa Barbara. This exclusive event features choreographed works by William Soleau, Rodney Gustafson, Laurie Eisenhower, and Kassandra Taylor Newberry.

State Street Ballet Academy: On January 1, 2022, Gustafson Dance began a new chapter as State Street Ballet Academy. After 27 years under the leadership of Allison Jones Gustafson and Rodney Gustafson, the company’s legacy of excellent dance training is continuing under the direction and ownership of Allison Jones Gustafson and Cecily MacDougall. The Academy will augment the existing connection with State Street Ballet, and offer students unique opportunities to train alongside and learn from the professional company artists. In addition, the Academy will supplement training with free master classes through UCSB Arts & Lectures.

Carol DeCanio Abeles Emerging Poets Prize

Explore Ecology School Gardens Program Wins Local Food Hero Award

C

ULTIVATING A PASSION AND APPRECIATION FOR GROWING ORGANIC FOOD AMONG LOCAL SCHOOLCHILDREN, Explore Ecology Garden Educators play an important role in teaching the planet’s future caretakers. In honor of their work, the program will be awarded with the 2022 Local Food Heroes Award at the 14th Annual Santa Barbara Seed Swap at 2pm on Sunday, March 20th at the Santa Barbara Community Arts Workshop, organized by Santa Barbara Permaculture Network. “We are so honored to receive this recognition,” said Lindsay Johnson, Executive Director of Explore Ecology. “Every school day, our Garden Educators can be found on campuses throughout the county, inspiring children by teaching them how to grow organic food! Students learn how to save seeds, take care of plants, and then enjoy the bounty of their work. Kids try lots of new food in the garden. Kale is really popular as well as passion fruit. You could say that school gardens make science delicious!” The Explore Ecology Garden Educators work with students at 30 schools across Santa Barbara County, teaching kids how to grow organic food, including lessons about seed saving and planting, composting, nutrition, harvesting, plant care, and cooking. The Seed Swap invites community members to join the seed saving movement by bringing their own seeds, cuttings, plants, and garden knowledge to trade with others. Individuals without any seeds to share are still welcome. There will also be live music, informational displays, workshops, and children activities. The event will take place 11am-4pm, Sunday, March 20th at the Santa Barbara Community Arts Workshop, 631 Garden Street. All COVID protocols will be followed.

OMMUNITY POETS WHO HAVE NOT YET PUBLISHED A FULLLENGTH BOOK OF POEMS ARE INVITED TO SUBMIT FOR A NEW POETRY AWARD, the Carol DeCanio Abeles Emerging Poets Prize, by Tuesday, March 15th. Poets may submit up to three works per entry. Three winners will be selected to receive cash prizes, have their work displayed by the Santa Barbara Public Library, and be shared online by Santa Barbara’s independent poetry publisher Gunpowder Press. “Our poetry community is incredibly vibrant, but it can be difficult for adult poets to share their work,” said Chryss Yost, Santa Barbara’s Poet Laureate from 2013-2015. “This prize is meant to be a way to encourage poets at the beginning of their poetry career, whether they are 20, 40, 60, or more. Poetry is open to everyone!” The award is named for Carol DeCanio Abeles, who enthusiastically supported poets in the community by organizing poetry month displays each April, and was a poet herself. Her work was published in literary journals, anthologies, and broadsides, and won the Individual Award in Poetry from the Santa Barbara Arts Fund. She also was the poetry columnist for VOICE Magazine for six years. The first place poet will receive $500, the runner-up will receive $300, and the second runner-up will receive $200.

Attempted Kidnappings in Isla Vista

John Palminteri

What’s Been Happening? Community Shows Support United Boys & Girls Club Honors Local Students for Ukraine with Rally

After two reported attempted kidnappings, Santa Barbara Sheriff’s units, K9, and a chopper were actively investigating in the Isla Vista / UCSB Campus housing areas on Monday, February 28th. A message was sent out to stay inside and do not walk alone. The chopper was working an area around El Colegio, Storke Rd. and Hollister.

Calle Real Hydrant Hit “WE ARE HERE TO SUPPORT THOSE WHO WANT FREEDOM. Those who want truth. Those who want peace. That is who we are!” said former State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson at a rally in support of Ukraine on Monday, February 28th at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. The World Dance for Humanity group put on a traditional Ukranian performance and held hands. Passersby showed their support with horn honking as the rally went to the curb line.

Central Coast Comments on State of the Union

15 kids receive the HIGHEST HONOR from the United Boys & Girls Clubs in Santa Barbara Co. by attending more than 200 days in 2021. This has been shown to be the road to college and a successful life ahead. They were awarded a “blue card” status at a special breakfast last week.

NASCAR Cup Series

A MORNING GUSHER - A vehicle sheared off a fire hydrant on Calle Real near Hope Ave. in Santa Barbara just before 6 am Wednesday, March 2nd. The area was flooded. Some vehicles at a car dealership were moved. Thousands of gallons of water went down the drain. Santa Barbara Fire and Police were on it.

THE WAR, inflation, housing issues, gas prices, climate change, the border, the Supreme Court and hope for the next generation. All are topics Central Coast people and visitors have been talking to me about leading up to the State of the Union address on Tuesday, March 2nd.

NASCAR CUP SERIES CHAMPION KYLE LARSON won Sunday, February 27th, the Wise Power 400 race at the Auto Club Speedway, in Fontana, the first here in two years. He held his lead through the final restart with four laps to go. Overall Larson led 28 of 200 laps in his Hendrick Motorsport Chevrolet. Larson is from Northern California. This is his second win at the Auto Club Speedway. He was followed by Austin Dillon, Erik Jones, Daniel Suarez, and Joey Logano. The next race will be at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Sunday, March 6th.

SBPL se asocia con el Women's Economic Ventures para ofrecer clases a las proveedoras de cuidado de niños

D

ESDE QUE COMENZÓ LA PANDEMIA, muchas familias trabajadoras reciben apoyo de amigos, familiares y vecinos para suplir el cuidado de sus hijos pequeños antes de que comiencen la escuela. La Biblioteca Pública de Santa Bárbara (SBPL) quiere apoyar a estos proveedores como pequeñas empresas en crecimiento. Como parte de un innovador programa de alfabetización temprana financiado por una subvención que se enfoca en brindar apoyo y construir una comunidad de cuidadores FFN, SBPL se está asociando con Women's Economic Ventures (WEV) para lanzar una serie de clases en español para ayudar a aquellos cuidadores informales que estén interesados en iniciar su propio negocio en este campo. La serie "Emprendiendo tu propio negocio de cuidado de niños" ofrecerá a las cuidadores interesados una oportunidad de aprendizaje virtual gratuito de cinco semanas sobre los temas de primeros pasos, licencias, recursos, estrategias de marketing, administración de empresas, presupuestos, fijación de precios y la creación de un plan de negocios. Las presentadoras de WEV que dirigen esta serie hablan español con fluidez y tienen una gran experiencia en el empoderamiento de pequeñas empresas. La serie brindará oportunidades para que los cuidadores mejoren sus habilidades profesionales y tengan éxito en una industria que está en comprobado crecimiento en Santa Bárbara. Al ofrecer estas clases, SBPL espera incrementar la cantidad de proveedoras de cuidado infantil acreditados en el condado, así como aumentar la competencia y la confianza de las cuidadores existentes. Evaluaciones de las necesidades de la comunidad han indicado que hay muchos arreglos informales de cuidado en nuestra comunidad debido a la escasez de cuidado infantil asequible y con licencia. "Brindar clases de alfabetización temprana de alta calidad siempre ha sido un objetivo de la biblioteca, y ahora estamos trabajando con socios de la comunidad para ampliar nuestras ofertas e incrementar nuestro alcance e impacto," dijo la directora de la biblioteca, Jessica Cadiente. "Estamos agradecidos por la subvención de la Biblioteca del Estado de California que nos permite ofrecer estos servicios adicionales para los cuidadores, especialmente en un idioma accesible para algunos de nuestros vecinos tradicionalmente desatendidos." Comprendiendo que no todos pueden tener las herramientas y el acceso para unirse a los programas virtuales, SBPL ofrece computadoras portátiles y dispositivos WiFi de acceso a Internet que se pueden prestar para conectarse a las clases. Cualquier persona con una tarjeta de la biblioteca puede pedir prestado un Chromebook Acer y un dispositivo WiFi, un Chromebook de Youth Services y un dispositivo WiFi, o un Chromebook Lenovo y un dispositivo WiFi o simplemente un dispositivo WiFi o un dispositivo WiFi de Youth Services. Puede obtener una tarjeta de biblioteca en cualquier sucursal de SBPL o parada de la Biblioteca Móvil sólo presentando una identificación con foto; sin embargo, la tarjeta no es necesaria para participar en el programa. Las clases se llevarán a cabo virtualmente los miércoles de marzo de 6:30pm a 8:30pm, empezando el 2 de marzo. Los participantes deben tomar las cinco clases. La inscripción ya está abierta para las clases programadas. Programación de la serie "Emprendiendo tu propio negocio de cuidado de niños": 2 de marzo a las 6:30pm: Cómo empezar, licencias, permisos y recursos útiles 9 de marzo a las 6:30pm: Comprender a tus clientes y crear una estrategia de marketing 16 de marzo a las 6:30pm: Tus números y tu mentalidad financiera 23 de marzo a las 6:30pm: Tus finanzas de negocio y cómo establecer tus precios 30 de marzo a las 6:30pm: Integrando todo lo que aprendimos en un Plan de Acción para tu Negocio

Los fondos para solventar este programa fueron otorgados a SBPL como parte de las Subvenciones de Aprendizaje Temprano de Visión Compartida de la Biblioteca Estatal de California. La Biblioteca Pública de Santa Bárbara es un departamento de la Ciudad de Santa Bárbara. Visita la Biblioteca Pública de Santa Bárbara en línea en SBPLibrary.org para obtener información sobre programas y servicios.

COMMUNITY NEWS

SBPL Partners with Women's Economic Ventures to Provide Classes for SpanishSpeaking Childcare Providers

S

INCE THE PANDEMIC BEGAN, many working families are using a combination of friends, family, and neighbor caregivers to piece together care for their young children before they begin school. Santa Barbara Public Library (SBPL) wants to support these burgeoning small business providers. As part of an innovative, grant-funded early literacy program that focuses on providing support and building community with FFN caregivers, SBPL is partnering with Women's Economic Ventures (WEV) to launch a series of classes in Spanish to help those informal caregivers who are interested in starting their own business in this field. The "Emprendiendo tu propio negocio de cuidado de niños" (Managing Your Own Childcare Business) Series will offer a five-week, free virtual learning opportunity for caregivers on topics of first steps, licensing, resources, marketing strategies, business administration, budgeting, pricing, and creating a business plan. The WEV presenters leading this series are fully fluent in Spanish, with a wealth of experience in empowering small business start ups. The series will allow opportunities for caregivers to sharpen their professional skills and succeed in an industry with a well-documented need for growth in Santa Barbara. SBPL hopes to increase the number of credentialed childcare providers in the county as well as increase the competence and confidence of existing caregivers by offering these classes. Community needs assessments have indicated that there are many informal caregiving arrangements in our community due to the shortage of affordable, licensed childcare. "Providing high-quality early literacy classes has always been a library goal, and now we are working with community partners to expand our offerings to broaden our reach and impact," said Library Director Jessica Cadiente. "We're grateful for the grant funding from the California State Library that allows us to offer these additional services for caregivers, especially in a language accessible to some of our traditionally underserved neighbors." Understanding that not everyone might have the tools and access to join virtual programs, SBPL offers laptops and WiFi hotspots that can be checked out to enable this connectivity. Anyone with a library card can check out an Acer chromebook and WiFi hotspot, a Youth Services chromebook and WiFi hotspot, or a Lenovo chromebook and WiFi hotspot or just a WiFi hotspot or Youth Services hotspot. Library cards are available at any SBPL location or van stop upon presentation of a photo ID and are not required for program participation. Classes will be held virtually on Wednesdays in March from 6:30-8:30 pm, beginning on March 2nd. Participants should take all five classes. Registration is currently open for scheduled classes.

E NOW HAVE A LOOMING COLD WAR with Russia due to its invasion of the Ukraine, as well as inflation to worry about this year. What will it do to economic growth and jobs? Inflation won’t recede soon with soaring oil prices, but higher economic growth is in the cards for the New Year. The Fed’s favorite indicator of consumption, the Personal Consumption

Expenditure price index (PCE) gained 6.1 percent year-over-year in January, the largest gain since 1982, and consumer spending in January rose 2.1 percent monthover-month, better than the expected forecast of 1.5 percent. “At least for now, consumers aren’t pulling back much on their spending in light of high inflation,” said one commentator. Other indicators of growth aren’t slowing, either, according to the IHS Markit flash surveys of the manufacturing and service

sectors. Both surveys have risen to the mid-50s, a strong sign of future growth in both sectors. And Q4 GDP growth was revised slightly higher in its second estimate to seven percent, the highest growth rate in 40 years. Job creation will also continue to grow as the Omicron variant recedes. There is more good news on jobs. Initial jobless benefit claims fell by 17,000 to 232,000 in the week ended February 19th, the Labor Department said Thursday (February 24th). The number of people already collecting jobless benefits fell by 112,000 to 1.48 million in the week ended February 12th. These so-called continuing claims are at their lowest level since March 1970, which means new job creation exceeds those being laid off. The main issue is what all this happening does to continuing job growth, with the Omicron variant infections returning to pre-

What Will 2022 Look Like?

Omicron levels. The CDC news is also good on that front. The CDC said, “as of February 16, 2022, the current seven-day moving average of daily new cases (121,665) decreased 43.0 percent compared with the previous seven-day moving average (213,625). A total of 78,060,327 COVID-19 cases have been reported in the United States as of February 16, 2022. The elephant in the room that could cancel the good news is effects from the invasion of Ukraine, of course, especially sanctions that might prolong the high inflation numbers. Excluding volatile gas and vehicle sales, the PCE price index quoted above rose 5.2 percent, and consumers in the latest

University of Michigan sentiment survey don’t see prolonged inflation. It will be hard to predict what happens next with a Russian dictator who seems to have lost touch with reality. Does he really want to start another Cold War with the Western world united against him? I don’t think so.

Made possible in part by funding from the David Bermant Foundation, the space will operate as The Arts Fund’s Community Gallery while simultaneously assuming operation of MSME as a new program. “I am thrilled to see the museum take the next logical step in its evolution and come under the umbrella of the Arts Fund,” said MSME Executive Director MSME Marco Pinter. “I have been honored to work with the Arts Fund in different capacities over the last several years -- as an artist, a curator, and a mentor -- and I believe they are the ideal organization to bring MSME to the community for years to come. I am also very grateful to the David Bermant Foundation for their generous support, which has made this transition possible.” With the leadership and operation of The Arts Fund, MSME will still offer community members experimental time-based art, with artists and artworks ranging from contemporary and local to historical, kinetic works. When the merger is complete, The Arts Fund will use its resources such as grants, corporate sponsorships, and individual giving to fund ongoing operations. It is hoped that MSME becomes a hub for Teen Arts Mentorship workshops, outdoor experimental weekends in La Cumbre Plaza, a La Cumbre Art Walk and other programming that will benefit and attract visitors. www.artsfundsb.org

The project will cost $4 million, and feature a vertical lifting platform for more convenient offloading. The new landing will also be higher, as the project takes rising sea levels into consideration. The project is scheduled to last approximately three months, with the island remaining closed throughout the process for the safety of the public.

A Bold Exhibition

Students to turn Stearns Wharf into ambitious art, education project

W

HEN KIDS DO ART PROJECTS AT SCHOOL THEIR HANDIWORK HANGS ON THE FAMILY REFRIGERATOR. When UC Santa Barbara students get creative, their work goes on display on the longest and oldest pier on the Central Coast. Seeping Into History: Oil Touches Everything, a remarkably ambitious exhibit created by students in the Social Print Lab in UCSB’s Department of Art and College of Creative Studies, will run Saturday, March 5th, through March 19th at Stearns Wharf in Santa Barbara.

Iman Djouini

The exhibit, which coincides with the wharf’s 150th anniversary, will explore the area’s long relationship with fossil fuels. The massive oil spill of 1969 off Santa Barbara inspired a national environmental movement that continues today. That long history and the ongoing threat to the environment inspired the students to tackle the development of the exhibition.

If you’re anywhere near Stearns Wharf — the most visited site in Santa Barbara — you won’t be able to miss Seeping Into History. With dozens of specially designed Anahi Garcia flags, brochure, and maps, an informational kiosk, digital audio tours, and more, the wharf will practically glow with the students’ work.

This later grew into print media and public art. Anahi Garcia, a third-year art major, acknowledged that she and her classmates — a dozen students from a range of majors — weren’t quite prepared for the level of challenge involved, even if they were selected to participate because of their interest in the project.

“There’s only so much we can sort of know about what we’re getting ourselves into until we’re in the moment and we have to problem solve something,” she said. “And I’ve been so amazed at just how resilient a lot of the students have been through various challenges. Truly creative problem solving has been needed, and I’ve been amazed at just how natural that has come, especially with the interdisciplinarity of this class.”

While the students are getting schooled in civic engagement, the project is ultimately about education. It seeks to tell the story about petroleum in the And what a project it is.

For the students organizing the exhibition, every aspect — the permitting process, working with multiple organizations, creating content — has been an education. And given the scale and ambitiousness of the project, they’re proud of what they’re about to pull off. “It’s been really, really fun,” Garcia said. “And I think it’s giving myself and all of my peers a really good experience in networking with people, communicating. We have had mentors who we’ve met with and we’ve worked on our presentation skills. You know, we’ve gone into deep research. We’ve been working together, being communicative amongst ourselves, and just growing together.” Printed with permission of UCSB Office of Public Affairs and Communications

And so I think making the connection between social and environmental justice in its relationship to our public space is sort of a natural thing. That’s already happening through this exhibition.”

In addition to the flags and information kiosks, the exhibition will include educational workshops for the public. The first, a program for adults in collaboration with MCASB, will include panel discussions on the research and production of the students’ work. The talk will feature UCSB students, hosted at the MCASB location and open to the public. It will be held Saturday, March 12th, from 3:30pm to 4:30pm.

Harbor VOICE SBIFF and the Mills Family Legacy

T

By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE

HIS IS SUCH AN EXCITING WEEK HERE IN SANTA BARBARA! After a couple of long COVID-laden years one of our town’s most lauded events, the long-awaited Santa Barbara International Film Festival will take place beginning on the evening of March 2nd with The Phantom of the Open at the historic Arlington Theater. During the Film Festival, spotlighted internationally by Executive Director Roger Durling, actors, writers, directors, and craftspersons along with a bevy of movie lovers will be camping at the local hostelries enjoying the ten day event and Santa Barbara’s beautiful coastline and beachside vibe. However, this is a column about the harbor and waterfront, right? The question now appears to be: How can I (a mega-movie lover myself) possibly weave our waterfront environs together with the art of filmmaking? Never, ever let it be said that our fair city lacks connectivity. Let’s scroll back through the pages of time to the Santa Barbara Museum of Art during the tenure of the late, great Paul Chadbourne Mills, the director of the museum from 1970-1982. The Mills family here in Santa Barbara included children Megan, Katie, and Mike who were raised in a home never far from eclectic art, culture, cuisine... and memories! While at the museum, Mills developed an interest in flags as a combination of modern design and history, one of the public formats he explored. The Santa Barbara Flag Project located on the breakwater and Stearns Wharf was established in 1977, and Mills maintained it until his death in 2004. As you can see we don’t have to move too far from the Museum of Art to make a connection to the harbor area. Or from the Chromatic Gate located on Cabrillo Boulevard, designed by Herbert Bayer, another iconic piece of public The Chromatic Gate, commissioned by art commissioned by Mills after his Paul Chadbourne Mills retirement. Walk along the harbor walkway and you’ll see that Paul Mills’ concept lives on! Now known as the Flag Project on the Breakwater, the 27 flag poles represent only a sample of the many philanthropic and cultural organizations based here in Santa Barbara, a mission close to Mills’ heart. In 2007 the flag project was reinstated under the stewardship of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club in partnership with the Waterfront Department. The colorful array of flags serves to highlight the spirit of philanthropy inherent in the community. To complete the circle between my beat as a waterfront reporter and the 2022 Film Festival, I will take another trip down Memory Lane to the 2007 official opening ceremony honoring Mills’ revisioned flag project. I had the great pleasure of welcoming his three children Katie, Megan, and Mike, and a granddaughter, to the ceremony. As part of the crowd watching them hoist a flag depicting a graphic of their father’s design, and in his honor, I became aware of the Mills family’s artistic legacy. Within a relatively short period, a film directed by Mike Mills and starring the late Christopher Plummer titled Beginners arrived in theaters. The Cinema Society held a screening of the 2010 autobiographical film, a narrative based on Mills’ father, Paul, coming out as a gay man after the death of his mother. As is usual after the film, Roger Durling conducted a Q&A about the film’s production, definitely an interesting experience

The Santa Barbara Flag Project along the breakwater

for a hometown boy. Mills began with a question for his audience: “How many of you seated here remember my dad’s Jack Russell terrier?” Much to everyone’s surprise, half the hands in the packed Riviera Theater went up! One of the stars of the film was actually a Jack Russell terrier, who served (with subtitles) as the Greek Chorus guiding the plot. Among those who knew Paul Mills, there wasn’t a dry eye in the place. Did I mention that Beginners won Christopher Plummer his first Academy Award and a wave of critical acclaim? The memory of days gone by here in Santa Barbara continued in Mills’ next film, 20th Century Women starring Annette Bening, nominated for best screenplay. This film is a story inspired by his late mother, Jan, and contained further insight into an exceptionally talented family. Mills’ continues his legacy in his latest film, the critically acclaimed C’mon, C’mon that opened in theaters late 2021. Santa Barbara can be truly proud of its artistic heritage, not only in film but the broad spectrum represented by all art forms. Our town’s inspiration and and support of all things creative continues and I thankfully bask in its astounding glow! Sigrid Toye volunteers for the Breakwater Flag Project.

Art review: Through Vincent’s Eyes, through May 22nd, Santa Barbara Museum of Art

Starry, Starry Blockbuster T’S OFFICIAL: the blockbuster has landed. As of Saturday’s members’ preview audience, Van Gogh—and a few handfuls of Van Goghs, stirred in among related and influential other work—have descended in the form of Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s major new exhibition Through Vincent’s Eyes: Van Gogh and his Sources. Pre-show buzz has been rightfully generous and satellite events and exhibitions have filtered through the city, via Sullivan-Goss, Ensemble Theater, Lotusland, Santa Barbara Symphony, and others joining in the peripheral party. In short, the Van Gogh exhibition, curated resourcefully and imaginatively by SBMA’s Chief Curator Eik Kahng, in conjunction with the Columbus Museum of Art, serves as a kind of twilight of the pandemic coming-out gala for SBMA and her host city.

INCENT VAN GOGH CAN ATTRIBUTE HIS LASTING FAME TO THE EFFORTS OF ONE REMARKABLE WOMAN — JO VAN GOGH-BONGER. Married to Vincent’s brother, Theo, Jo joined Theo in offering profound emotional and financial support to Van Gogh so that he could pursue his art. Tragically, only half a year after Van Gogh committed suicide in 1890, Theo died of illness. Jo was now the owner of Van Gogh’s paintings. In honor of her husband and brother-inJo van Gogh-Bonger law, Jo worked to share Van Gogh’s paintings with the world. She organized numerous shows and sales, helping Van Gogh’s works gain international popularity by ensuring his works went to exhibitions that would be open

Santa Barbara International Film Festival:

By the conclusion of the Festival, all six will have screened at least twice each and Festival jurors will present the Social Justice Award to the one who they feel and think is the strongest. This year’s judges include two industry professionals: Tim Grierson, critic and author of How To Make a Movie and Dupe Bosu, Vice President, Entertainment Strategic Communications (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion), at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. As you consider which films to take in, these films would make strong contenders. Big Crow is a story about the power of hope in the most destitute place in America— South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. By age 14, SuAnne Big Crow had become one of the state’s best basketball players, and at 17, her wisdom, leadership, and determination made her a household name across the Great Plains. Thirty years after her tragic death, SuAnne’s spirit has proven legendary, galvanizing the Lakota in their fight to save their culture. The World Premiere screenings are at Metro #4 on Friday, March 4th at 6pm and Saturday, March 5th at 3pm. 69 min, United States

Geeta and her daughter, survivors of a horrific acid attack by Geeta’s husband nearly 30 years

Sextortion: The Hidden Pandemic directed by Maria Demeshkina Peek

Travel is at a tipping point. Tourists are unintentionally destroying the very things they have come to see. Overtourism has magnified its impact on the environment, wildlife, and vulnerable communities around the globe. The Last Tourist reveals the real conditions and consequences of one of the world’s largest industries through the forgotten voices of those working in its shadow. Modern tourism is on trial. Featuring Dr. Jane Goodall. The U.S. Premiere screenings are Tuesday March 8th at 1:20pm at Fiesta #4 and Thursday, March 10th at 8am at Metro #1. 101 min, Canada In 1945, the U.S. firebombed Tokyo, destroying a quarter of the city and killing 100,000 people. For years, survivors have campaigned for a public memorial and token compensation for civilians who lost everything, but they have found themselves cast aside. Now, as public memory fades, three survivors fight to leave behind a record before they pass away. Paper City explores what we choose to remember and aim to forget— and what the consequences are. The U.S. Premiere screenings are Thursday March 3rd at 11:20am at Metro #2 and Sunday, March 6th at 12 noon at Metro #4. 80 min, Australia, Japan, Subtitled. Sextortion: The Hidden Pandemic is an exposé into the world of online grooming and sextortion that is a present-day reality for one in seven children online. By unsealing the Homeland Security Investigations case of a Navy pilot with hundreds of victims, and in interviewing survivors and their parents, this true-crime piece reveals how and why this cybercrime against children is becoming pandemic. The World Premiere screenings are Thursday, March 3rd at 9pm at Metro #4 and Sunday, March 6th at 4pm at Fiesta #2. 85 min, United States. Sheroes (À la vie) features Chantal Birman, who has devoted her life to defending abortion and the rights of women. Nearly 70, she has no intention of retiring from her job as a midwife. From painful moments to joyful experiences, she works with pregnant women and new mothers in the housing projects outside of Paris. This film offers a special take on the place of mothers in society and provides unique insight into that delicate moment of “going home.” The U.S. Premiere screenings are Thursday, March 3rd at 8am at Metro #1 and Sunday, March 6th at 1:20pm at Fiesta #4. 78 min, France, Subtitled.

This year, there are six films in consideration for this special award recognition. Big Crow directed by Kris Kaczor, Geeta directed by Emma Macey-Storch, Paper City directed by Adrian Francis, The Last Tourist directed by Tyson Sadler, Sextortion: The Hidden Pandemic directed by Maria Demeshkina Peek, and Sheroes (À la vie) directed by Aude Pépin.

Sometimes the most moving and inspirational films of the Festival, these documentary films address social justice from a variety of real life perspectives, tackling a range of complex issues, usually from a human, heartfelt viewpoint.

ago, are not what you might expect of Indian women battling social ostracism, dispossession, pariahdom, and patriarchy. They are vocal, funny, and active, and they live their lives in the slums of Agra with gusto, hope, and an uncompromising determination. Geeta’s attempt to change her daughter’s destiny is a reminder of the power of love to ignite change. The U.S. Premiere screenings are Saturday March 5th at 10:20am at Fiesta #4 and Monday, March 7th at 2pm at Metro #1. 90 min, India, Subtitled
