Goodbyes Begin as MCASB Announces Imminent Closure


By Kerry Methner / VOICE

CREATIVE HOTSPOT AND SAFE SPACE FOR ARTISTS FOR DECADES, Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, formerly known as the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum, announced plans to close its doors this week, with a closure to the public date set for August 28th, 2022.

In a press release to media and an email to members and friends, MCASB’s Board of Trustees shared, “With heavy hearts, we write to inform you that after 47 years of service to the Santa Barbara community the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCASB) is no longer able to continue operating in its current form.” Untitled, 1971, Isla Vista Series by Marion Post Wolcott In a press statement, Laura Macker Johnston, MCASB Board President, wrote, “Through the great work that the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara has done to invite and highlight artists whose work has given context to our hurts, our joys, our desires, and our fears, we have always strived to break barriers in order to present a multitude of realities and experiences. Anyone who has had a meaningful interaction with our programming or exhibitions can attest that MCASB has served as a cultural center that has been deeply committed to listening and responding to our community’s diverse needs. The organization has faced financial strain for many years now.”

She continued, “we recognize that we are one of so many arts institutions and nonprofits that, as a result of the pandemic, are in this insurmountable position. Despite our best efforts to expand our donor base within the region, we have been unable to reach the fundraising goals necessary to maintain operations and it is the board’s intention to act responsibly at this time to honor the institution’s legacy.” Because CAF and MCASB have been to central to Santa Barbara’s cultural heart, VOICE Magazine requests that readers send in their memories of significant exhibitions or opporunities offered by this creative community institution.


- Rita Ferri, Arts Curator/Consultant

HIS IS A VERY SAD DAY FOR SANTA BARBARA. Having worked in the early days of the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum for almost 20 years, I think back on the thousands of hours that staff, directors, board members, installers, and volunteers gladly gave their time and energy because they had a vision to create a unique contemporary venue for the art of our time. I think of how lean an organization it was: days with no money for stamps, cast-off computers, partial paychecks, folding chairs at our work stations, and no retirement fund. We made it work because we believed what we were doing was vital and important. It’s a tragic day for contemporary artists because the scope of where they can show their work in a non-profit education-oriented venue has been greatly diminished. Tragic because the opportunity to see contemporary work in a Santa Barbara museum setting has been greatly reduced. CAF did what no one else was doing in Santa Barbara. They created their own cutting-edge exhibitions and events. In 1990 when the NEA rejected the grants of four performance artists due to political pressure, CAF showed them at Center Stage Theater. Carolee Schneemann, James Luna, and Rachel Rosenthanl also created seminal performance works. When the then current work of painter Llyn Foulkes was deemed too difficult for his gallery, CAF gave him a one-man show. CAF created opportunities for artists like Gronk and Marie Schoeff to complete transformative wall size drawings on site. Artists like Mineko Grimmer, Peter Shelton, Carl Cheng, and Ann Hamilton created astounding, memorable on-site installations that people still ask me about to this day. Marge Dunlap’s ceramic fountain in Las Aves was the first contemporary public art project approved by the City. Major Assemblage and Folk Art exhibitions were organized by volunteers. When the NEA rejected our grant for a proposed 1988 Home Show saying they thought it was a great idea but that we were too small an organization to pull it off, we went on to raise our own money and present the first on-site exhibition of its type in the U.S. When photography was still labeled a craft, CAF organized major photography exhibitions featuring Richard Ross, Jeff Brouws, Susan Jorgensen, Laura Aguilar, Catherine Opie, Andreas Gursky, Nell Campbell, and Bob deBris.

Artist David Wojnarowicz, an AIDS activist created striking work at CAF. New music was explored by Dick So far, three early leaders at CAF have Dunlap, Richard Lerman, and CAF sponsored diverse shared their thoughts about the closure video and dance collaborations. Well known artists announcement: Joan Tanner, Rita Ferri, like Ed Keinholz and Nancy Reddin, Yoko Ono, Wayne and Meg Linton. Watch for additional Thieaud, Charles Garabedian, William Wiley, and Hung voices in the weeks to come - and thanks Liu not only showed their work but were accessible for for your interest in art and the creative discussion with the public. At CAF I taught the first process and its role in our community. Fountain by Marge Dunlap SBCC Adult Education classes on collecting art, folk art, American Pastoral Past Times www.mcasantabarbara.org by Thomas Stoeckinger assemblage art, and my own personal favorite, “What is Contemporary Art?... or My 5yr old Could Do That!” (I knew that’s what they were thinking.) Hundreds of groups came, from pre-school to grad students Meg Linton, independent curator, writer, and Lead Producer for Acting Like to collectors, all eager to seek exciting new work. And more than a thousand Women, a film directed by Cheri Gaulke about 1970s-80s feminist performance astounding regional artists whose names I could never all list here, contributed art out of the Los Angeles Woman’s Building to the dialogue that created the phenomenon that was CAF and supported it with RIOR TO MY ARRIVAL, (I was Executive Director from 1999-2003), their own blood, sweat, and tears. It was a golden creative time for Santa Barbara the Contemporary Arts Forum was formed and lead by intelligent and that changed us and we were all the better for having been part of it. innovative directors Mona Kwan Higuchi, Betty Klausner, and Nancy Doll, I still treasure small moments like the time I was walking in downtown and I was honored to follow in their dedication to supporting artists and Carpinteria and a teenager yelled out to me, “As a matter of fact we do call it art!” ideas of the day. The Contemporary Arts Forum was an essential part of the artistic It was our CAF bumper sticker motto and he had remembered it from my visit to community in Santa Barbara and a significant contributor to the development of his 3rd grade classroom. CAF was expanding hearts and minds one at a time. a contemporary art conversation on the West Coast for several decades. It was a place where artists could go to make any idea a reality. It was about the artistic process and experimentalism. So many wonderful, landmark shows happened for many artists like Ann Hamilton, Yoko Ono, Peter Shelton, Llyn Foulkes, Mineko Grimmer, Elizabeth Turk, Sandow Birk, Linda Stark, Joan Tanner, Keith Puccinelli, and thousands more. It makes me wonder what the plans are for CAF’s invaluable Adieu to CAF > MCASB until others come along to create a different and informative archive. It really needs to find a home with an institution that can contemporary art start up. Then it’s your turn to go for it: make its history accessible to scholars. I hope the current board has the vision to anticipate loads of work, rely on artists to participate, gather compelling ideas preserve its legacy because the artists who have been involved with CAF and later to present oddly curious, strangely interesting, good stuff. MCASB deserve it. It’s a sad day for all who have put their blood, sweat, and tears Best wishes, Joan Tanner, Former Board Member into the making of this institution. It will be missed.

Court of Appeals Prohibits Fracking Until Federal Government Complies with Environmental Protection Laws


The Court agreed with the Environmental Defense Center and Santa Barbara Channelkeeper (SBCK) that the government failed to conduct a full environmental review, and should have prepared an Environmental Impact Statement to address the impacts of fracking and acidizing on wildlife, the Santa Barbara Channel, and endangered and threatened species. The Court also agreed with the environmental groups that the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement were required to consult with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service regarding potential impacts to threatened and endangered species. Finally, the Court held that the federal government must provide the California Coastal Commission with an opportunity to review fracking and acidizing before allowing such practices. Accordingly, the Court confirmed the injunction prohibiting the federal government from approving any plans or permits for the use of well stimulation treatments offshore California. “We are very pleased by this affirming decision,” said Science and Policy Director for SBCK Benjamin Pitterle. “In this era of climate change, with ever mounting threats to our oceans and wildlife, it is absolutely appropriate and essential that the federal government adequately evaluate oil development activities like these in order to safeguard our precious marine resources.” EDC initially filed a lawsuit in 2014 to stop fracking and acidizing in the region after discovering, through a series of Freedom of Information Act requests, that more than 50 permits had been issued by the federal government without any public or environmental

HE NINTH CIRCUIT OF APPEALS ISSUED AN OPINION ON JUNE 3RD which ruled that the federal government violated environmental protection laws when it approved permits for fracking and acidizing from platforms offshore California. This ruling was made in the wake of a lawsuit made by the Environmental Defense Center and Santa Barbara Channelkeeper. It protects sensitive coastline and marine waters, local communities, and wildlife, including threatened and endangered species, from the risky practices of offshore fracking and acidizing.

review. That case settled, with the federal government agreeing to conduct environmental review. When the government failed to conduct full environmental review or consult with Fish and Wildlife Service, EDC and SBCK filed this lawsuit in 2016. The lawsuit challenged the failure of the federal government to analyze and disclose the potential risks and impacts caused by fracking and acidizing from offshore oil platforms in southern California, including the Santa Barbara Channel. Fracking and acidizing are oil production processes involving the injection of large amounts of water and chemicals into the ground in order to fracture or dissolve rock. Fracking and acidizing fluids from the platforms are then discharged into the Santa Barbara Channel, an area that harbors great biological diversity.

Addressing Affordable Housing

Vacant Home Tax Headed To San Francisco Voters


SIGNATURE DRIVE FOR A CITY WIDE REFERENDUM TO TAX VACANT HOMES in San Francisco has been successful. The measure will be voted on in the upcoming November 8th election. There are an estimated 4,500 vacant units that could generate up to $38 million in annual revenue for the city if voters passed the measure, according to a report in the San Francisco Chronicle. The citywide referendum proposes half of the revenue raised will fund rental subsidies for seniors and low income families. The other half would be used to mitigate affordable housing. Oakland, CA already has a similar vacancy tax as well as Vancouver, British Columbia.

Interview/Book Review:

A Lifelong Commitment to Service

“Bringing back the memories brings back the feelings that go with it,” shared Green, later adding, “I think my strongest emotion was one of excitement at being able to participate in such historical events.”

Building Community: Answering Kennedy’s Call By Daisy Scott / VOICE


ROM SERVING OVERSEAS IN THE PEACE CORPS TO WORKING ALONGSIDE CESAR CHAVEZ, Harlan Russell Green has witnessed firsthand the power communities have for creating positive change. Now, after 50 years of dedication and action, this locally-based financial columnist and documentary filmmaker is passing the torch to the next generation with his newly published memoir, Building Community: Answering Kennedy’s Call. The book is Green’s direct response to what he perceived as growing nationwide disunity. In it, he advocates for establishing liveable communities, close-knit communities that prioritize residents’ and environmental needs.

“After seeing the chaos and lack of community, and breaking up of communities has been going on — especially those past Harlan Russell Green four years under Trump — I thought I’d better write something about my community building and community experience to show what healthy communities are, how they work, and how you find them and contribute to them,” Green told VOICE. Currently, Green is the editor and publisher of PopularEconomics.com, and the writer behind VOICE Magazine’s “Economic Voice” column. He is also a

Written in a chronological, conversational style, Green’s memoir combines thoughtful insight with research to guide readers through historic events and cultural mindsets. He opens the book with President Kennedy’s assassination, reliving his and other UC Berkeley undergraduates’ reactions. That very day, Green enlisted in the Peace Corps to honor Kennedy’s famous call to “ask what you can do for your country.” Readers follow Green as he undergoes Peace Corps training and ultimately travels to the village of Ismet Pasha, Turkey. Over the next two years, he helped to improve farming technologies, working to strengthen the community so residents would continue development in their village instead of migrating to urban centers. Green next focuses on his involvement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a photographer and filmmaker in its early days — surviving a plane’s crash landing in the process. He also served as the head of the United Farm Workers’ Film Department, granting him the opportunity to support Cesar Chavez as he advocated for farmworkers’ rights. In harrowing detail, Green explains how his crew’s presence deterred police from harassing and arresting protesting farmworkers.

Marcus Stevenson


CITIZEN OF THE WORLD with a collaborative approach to music, Marcus Stevenson, a viola fellow at the Music Academy, hopes audiences leave each of his performances filled with new sentiments and inspiration. He believes Santa Barbara is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and looks forward to making memories with the body of artists at the Music Academy this summer.

Stevenson earned a bachelor’s degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music, where he worked side-by-side with violist and chamber musician, Jeffery Irvine. He is passing on his musical knowledge as a viola teacher in the Shaker Heights Virtual Lesson Program. Attend Stevenson’s next performance in the Showcase Series with Molly Joyce and Academy Fellows at Hahn Hall on Wednesday, July 20th at 7:30pm.

Green’s convictions and excitement are expressed throughout his writing, as he skillfully weaves anecdotes throughout a larger historical framework. This grants readers insight into not only his personal experiences, but reflects the various cultures he engaged with, from 1960’s Turkish society to California in the 1970’s.

Meet A Fellow: By Samantha Muscio / VOICE

July 15, 2022

Stevenson shared a few of his thoughts about music and the Music Academy below:

He also includes poems responding to key moments, such as crowds reacting to Cesar Chavez. Combined with his present-day commentary, readers understand that while historical movements are later viewed collectively, in the moment as they happen they are lived by individuals. Green concludes with local history, recounting efforts to revitalize Old Town Goleta and designate Goleta as a city. As he guides readers into the present moment, the parallels between our post-pandemic age and the challenges of the past become increasingly apparent. For Green, one element remains constant: the need for grassroots community building. “It’s really targeted for future generations, I’m trying to tell them that what we did, they can do now,” said Green. “The circumstances we encountered back in those days were disheartening — don’t do nothing, to use a double negative — if you see a problem, there are ways to fix it.” Available at Chaucer’s Books, 3321 State St., and via Amazon.

places I’ve ever been, and I love being so close to the beach and the mountains. It can get busy with orchestra, chamber music, practicing, etc., so I love to spend a lot of time outside when I can. Downtown is also a fun place to explore with friends! There are lots of nice restaurants I look forward to trying while I’m here. VOICE: What do you find fulfilling about performing?

Stevenson: I’ve always had a deep love for making music, but I was inspired to pursue it as a career by my wonderful mentors and friends. I am inspired by their knowledge and ability as musicians, and I’m fortunate to have such great role models to follow. Moreover, I am inspired by their kindness and generosity. They inspire me to be both a better musician and a better citizen of the world; I am lucky to do what I love most with amazing people!

Stevenson: For me, performing is most fulfilling when I feel that I’ve connected emotionally with the audience. While participating in Music Academy’s String Quartet Seminar, our mentors in the Takács Quartet have encouraged us to think of all performances as a collaborative event with the listener, and to think about how we want them to feel after the performance. I feel more fulfilled when I’ve said all that I want to say with the music, and when the listener is able to experience the music in their own way.

VOICE: What do you most enjoy about studying at the Music Academy?

VOICE: What are you most looking forward to this summer?

Stevenson: There is so much to enjoy about Music Academy, but one of my favorite aspects is the location! Santa Barbara is one of the most beautiful

Stevenson: I’m excited to make new friends at Music Academy this summer! The music world can be quite small, and we’ll have many chances to meet again

VOICE: What first inspired you, and continues to inspire you, to pursue music?

in the future. We all come from different backgrounds and have different life experiences, but we also share a love for music. I look forward to connecting with people who inspire me, who I can learn from, and who I can make great memories with!

Santa Cruz Island History in a Flag

July 15, 2022

Please join us for

Photos by Sigrid Toye

La Recepción del Presidente!

By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE


TROLLING DOWN THE HARBOR WALKWAY on a beautiful sunny afternoon, I stopped to admire the colorful flags along the breakwater. The array continues to give me pause because that is the spot in the harbor where my heart lies. Courtesy of the Flag Project, I was given the opportunity to learn about Santa Barbara’s history, meet community leaders and so many fascinating people, and become involved in a way I’d never been involved before. Atop each pole, created with the lightest of materials for the benefit of Mother Nature’s own wind speed and direction indicators, is a flag with an individual image representing one of the over 1,000 non-profits in the city of Santa Barbara. Originally conceived by the late Paul Chadbourne Mills, former director of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and commissioner of the Chromatic Gate, the flags were maintained solely by Mills until his death in 2004. Reinstated in 2007, the present array, known as the Flag Project on the Breakwater, is now a partnership between the Santa Barbara Yacht Club and the Waterfront Department designed as a service to the community and in grateful memory of Paul Mills. One of the earliest (if not the earliest!) participant in Mills’ early display was a flag representing the Santa Cruz Island Foundation (SCIF). In an attempt to learn more about the Foundation and Santa Cruz Island itself, Professor Google opened doors to a myriad of opportunities for investigation and storytelling: historical, ecological, anthropological, marine, and other biological resources... all wrapped in a bouquet of flora and fauna! A visit to the Channel Islands National Park Visitor Center in Ventura Harbor also provided information and a selection of images and exhibits captured on my camera. Talk about a kid in a candy store! The Santa Cruz Island Foundation, a nonprofit public benefit corporation established in 1985 by the late Carey Stanton, serves to protect the island’s natural and historic resources. The Foundation maintains and catalogs historical items of real and personal property and historic artifacts pertaining to Santa Cruz and the other Channel Islands off the California coast. The organization also monitors and protects

the islands’ unique natural environment that includes biologically diverse plants and animals not seen anywhere on the mainland. The Foundation displays items in cooperation with The Nature Conservancy, National Park Service, and other research and historical institutions for the benefit of the public as well as to promote publications dealing with all aspects of the Channel Islands. In addition, the SCIF organizes and sponsors public exhibits and events and sponsors educational trips. Santa Cruz Island itself resembles a miniature California! At over 96 square miles it’s the largest island in the State. Santa Cruz contains two rugged mountain ranges (the highest peak rising above 2,000 feet), a central valley, an extensive fault system, canyons with year-round springs, and miles of craggy coastline cliffs. The island also contains giant sea caves including one of the largest and deepest in the world, the Painted Cave found Montecito Magazine on Santa Cruz’s northwest coastline. Today Proof Approval the protection and preservation of Santa Cruz Island is divided between several organizations: o Approved, changes The Nature Conservancy no owns and manages OR the western 76 percent oofChanges the island, while the marked eastern 24 percent is owned and managed by Date ______________ the National Park Service. How that came to Approved by be is definitely a story in itself for yet another ____________________ column!

Music Academy Presents Sō Percussion

Jingle Your Keys and Clap Your Hands!


J U N 13 – A U G 6


Photo by Zach Mendez


Sō Percussion, Josh Quillen, Eric Cha-Beach, Jason Treuting, and Adam Sliwinski, performing 4+9 (Four and Nine)

Week 5 THU JUL 14

1:30 PM PERCUSSION MASTERCLASS | Michael Werner – HH 3:30 PM BASSOON MASTERCLASS | Benjamin Kamins – LH 7:30 PM PICNIC CONCERT SERIES | Academy Fellows – HH




Sliwinski shared with VOICE that the ensemble especially values collaboration in its artistic process, both through composing their own music and commissioning works by other composers.












ELIGHTFULLY SUBVERTING EXPECTATIONS AT EVERY TURN, Sō Percussion transformed Hahn Hall into an interactive, innovative soundscape in their July 9th concert with Music Academy fellows. A Mosher Guest artist, the percussion quartet masterfully utilized traditional and unorthodox instruments — including the audience members’ keys and voices — to deliver an evening of unique music and a world premiere. Made up of musicians Eric Cha-Beach, Josh Quillen, Adam Sliwinski, and Jason Treuting, Sō Percussion has pushed the limits of percussion music for over 20 years, performing at acclaimed concert halls across the nation and the world.




By Daisy Scott / VOICE



“As a new music group, what that means is you keep going where there are new voices, be they composers or collaborators who maybe fit in a few different categories that we do, especially folks from younger generations — bringing them into our collaborative process is constantly refreshing what we’re doing,” Sliwinski elaborated. This devotion to collaboration shone throughout the night, as Sō Percussion invited not only Music Academy percussion fellows, but string, flute, and harp fellows to create music with them. Hahn Hall’s stage was accordingly packed with dozens of instruments, intriguing audience members as they wondered how each would be used. Sō Percussion kicked off the night with 4+9 (Four and Nine) by ensemble member Eric Cha-Beach. Played solely on metal pipes, the quartet layered beats and alternating tempos to create intimate sounds ranging from a rainstorm to electric rhythms. Percussion fellows joined the ensemble for Walk. March. Run. by Kendall Williams, which was commissioned by Sō Percussion through their Flexible Commissions program. As Hahn Hall darkened, fellows and Sō Percussion walked from behind the audience to the stage, shaking and hitting various handheld percussion instruments. On stage, the group played snare drums and hi-hats to create a resounding marching beat, quickening the pace and yelling “Run!” as the energy crescendoed.

The concert also featured the world premiere of composer Robyn Cee Kay Jacob’s Collective Unstoppable. Jacob submitted the piece to Sō Percussion during the pandemic, leading to a purely virtual collaboration to realize the piece. Performed on nine snare drums, nine hi-hats, and three marimbas, Academy fellows and Sō Percussion members played in and out of unison, progressing between instruments to create fleeting, mesmerizing patterns. In preparing this work and program, Sō Percussion appreciated the opportunity to collaborate with the Music Academy’s host of talented fellows. “Fellow is really the right word for the folks around here, these are really professional musicians,” said Sliwinski. Sō Percussion concluded with Amid the Noise, composed by Jason Treuting. The seven-movement work transported listeners through varied soundscapes, traversing harmonious peaks and slow, methodical beats. 14 Music Academy fellows and teaching artists contributed their talents, engaging viola, violin, harp, flute, and more alongside Sō Percussion. Treuting explained that Sō Percussion aimed to include any fellows who wanted to participate. “A composer oftentimes writes the music and then orchestrates it,” said Treuting. “Sometimes, as often as I can, I like to write the music, and then let’s orchestrate it together.” With footage of city scenes by Treuting’s sister as a backdrop, the group incorporated bells, ripping newspaper, and stroked cello bows against marimba keys to alternate between busy and peaceful atmospheres. Audience members were even conducted to jingle their keys, sing, clap, and snap, adding to the immersive experience. As Sō Percussion’s experimental style leads them to perform no work the exact same way twice, the piece and overall concert unified Hahn Hall guests and musicians in a one-of-a-kind moment. “We are in this room together sharing an experience that nobody else in the world has ever had,” voiced Treuting. “And that’s going to take every listener to lots of places, and we do hope that most of those places are really enjoyable.”

Community Fun at St. Joseph’s Church Carnival

Donation Supports New Firehawk Medical Rescue Gear SATURDAY, JULY 9TH - Special medical rescue gear will be added to Santa Barbara County’s Firehawk through community and One805 non-profit donations. During the check presentation event, an emergency fire call came in, sending the helicopter and its crew into immediate action.

The new equipment will help stabilize two patients in flat or upright positions as the helicopter transports them. Sheriff Bill Brown commented on how first responders can use the helicopter. “In the event of a mass casualty situation it can be incorporated to get people out to a hospital,” said Brown. “Or it can also be used in a specific law enforcement incident to get a SWAT team from one area to another.”

ULL OF HOPE, ENCOURAGEMENT, AND COMPASSION FOR ALL PEOPLE, Change Sings: A Children’s Anthem is a powerful reminder of the role children play in shaping our future. Published in September 2021, the book features a poem written by Amanda Gorman, who quickly achieved literary celebrity status for reciting her poem The Hill We Climb at President Biden’s inauguration. Similar to that poem, Change Sings: A Children’s Anthem advocates for all individuals to give back to their community and build relationships with others.

Utilizing straightforward, rhyming verse perfect for young readers, Gorman uses music as a metaphor for change, opening with “I don’t fear change coming, and so I sing along.” This poetry is set to gorgeous illustrations by Loren Long, who depicts the poem being spoken by a young Black girl as she joins a diverse group of friends to clean her community and share food with those in need.

Young readers also encounter positive messages about how to show tolerance to people resistant to change, even when it may be scary. This, combined with the poem’s affirmations such as “I’m the change I want to see,” will empower children to stand up for their beliefs and a brighter future, helping them understand that regardless of their age, they can make a lasting difference.

Meet A Fellow:

Benjamin D ’Haiti By Samantha Muscio / VOICE

MBRACING THE MUSIC ACADEMY’S ENVIRONMENT OF EXCELLENCE, Benjamin D’Haiti, a trumpet fellow, tries to evoke emotion from his listeners by providing an intimate musical experience. He feels the most inspired when he is surrounded by artists who seek the best from themselves and their abilities.

D’Haiti, who is earning a bachelor’s degree at Rice University Shepard School of Music, was named winner of the American Youth Philharmonic Concerto Competition in 2021 and serves on the Vienna Academy of Music and Arts Board of Directors. He performed as a soloist at Carnegie Hall this April. Your next chance to see D’Haiti’s talent on stage is at the x2 Series concert at the Lobero Theatre on Tuesday, July 19th at 7:30pm where he will be performing with Music Academy artists and 2022 fellows. D’Haiti took a moment to answer a few questions for VOICE readers:

truthfully a fantastic gift. VOICE: What do you find fulfilling about performing?

D’Haiti: Personally, I love performing music because of how personal and intimate the experience is for both myself and my audience. There’s truly no sensation like performing for an audience. To me, performing is akin to the experience of people who do extreme activities for the thrill, but at the same time, performing is also a deeply emotional event. As a performer, my goal is to make the audience feel the music that I am playing on an emotional level, but performing is a vulnerable experience where I feel that I have to humble myself to the audience and the art. It is honestly super invigorating to see the music that I perform affect my audience on a personal and intimate level.

VOICE: What first inspired you, and continues to inspire you, to pursue music?

D’Haiti: Throughout my childhood, I was always surrounded by music. My mother is a piano teacher and my siblings are also musicians, so music was always one of the only things that seemed most natural in my life. My family always prioritized the fine arts, so I definitely grew up in an environment where it would be easy for me to thrive in music. Especially when I was young, I remember feeling most inspired by my family and their commitment to ensuring that my siblings and I felt like all of our dreams were within reach. Now, I’d have to say that I feel most inspired by my peers. I often find myself surrounded by other musicians, athletes, or artists that have a true dedication to their craft and demand the best from themselves and their contemporaries. I constantly find myself in an environment of perseverance and excellence, and I feel most motivated to cultivate my musicianship when I am around other people who are the best in the world at what they do.

debut concert by the Curtis Symphony Orchestra on Thursday, May 18th, 2023, 7:30pm. Featuring more than 100 extraordinary aspiring young master musicians from Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music (founded 1920), conductor Osmo Vänskä (Music Director of the Minnesota Orchestra) will be joined by piano legend Yefim Bronfman. “This concert will showcase the sparking virtuosity and artistry of these exceptional young classic music talents of tomorrow,” Cloud commented.

Masterseries @ 40

Masterseries, CAMA’s chamber music and recital series, now celebrating its 40th year of intimate Lobero Theatre performances by classical soloists and chamber musicians, will welcome the return of musicians and ensembles who have given memorable Masterseries performances. “The roster will include two special quartet concerts that celebrate both history and tradition: the Juilliard String Quartet on October 24th, 2022, and Los Romeros (The Romero Guitar Quartet) on March 4rd, 2023,” Cloud added. Both of these ensembles boast Santa Barbara connections. The Juilliard String Quartet is celebrating its 75th Anniversary Season. Former UCSB Music faculty member Ronald Copes (violin) is now the quartet’s most senior member. The ensemble is joined by its newest member Molly Carr (viola). “Violinist Ronald Copes, a former faculty member in

VOICE: What are you most looking forward to this summer? VOICE: What do you most enjoy about studying at the Music Academy?

D’Haiti: This environment of excellence is truly my favorite thing about the Music Academy. I am able to hear some of the most talented musicians in the world push themselves to be better every day, and I feel that the Music Academy is the perfect place where I can cultivate my own skills. To live amongst and perform beside such talented colleagues is

D’Haiti: This summer, I look forward to performing for as many people as possible with my colleagues at the Music Academy. It is sincerely one of the greatest experiences that I have had in my life thus far. The Music Academy has done so much to facilitate this reality for my colleagues and me, and I could not imagine my summer without performing at the Music Academy.


UCSB’s Department of Music, has played with the Quartet since 1997.” Cloud explained. “The program will feature a performance of Beethoven’s Quartet No.16, Op.135, the last major work he completed and not premiered until after his death.” The second ensemble with a Santa Barbara connection will be welcomed home to the Lobero stage in a CAMA/Lobero Theatre Foundation collaboration for the venue’s 150th Anniversary. The Romeros, called “The Royal Family of the Guitar,” career as a quartet began on the Lobero stage, in 1961. Cloud shared his almost encyclopedic knowledge, “Venerable guitarist Celedonio Romero left his native Spain in 1957 to escape the Fascist regime of Generalisimo Franco. The Romero family booked passage to the United States, eventually settling in Santa Barbara where Celedonio made his U.S. solo recital debut at the Lobero Theatre in 1958, followed by concerts at the Lobero with his three sons Celin, Pepe and Angel in 1959 and 1961. The Romeros became the very first classical guitar quartet on the international concert scene. Now three generations of the Romero musical dynasty have come over the past 60-plus years to be recognized and acclaimed by millions!”

Labor Market Too Hot? February 2020 values (63.4 percent and 61.2 percent, respectively), which means not everyone has gone back to work (1.3 million, actually), and employment rolls still have room to grow.

By Harlan Green, Special to VOICE


OTAL NONFARM PAYROLL EMPLOYMENT rose by 372,000 in June, and the unemployment rate remained at 3.6 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Notable job gains occurred in professional and business services, leisure and hospitality, and health care. I reported last week that weekly initial unemployment claims had been holding at the lowest level since 1970, which was a sign of an extremely tight labor market, and that has proved to be the case.

All sectors showed growth and average hourly wages are still growing at 5.1 percent, a huge increase that will keep consumers spending and the economic growth continuing, despite inflation and rising interest rates.

Economic VOICE

By Harlan Green

The unemployment rate held a 3.6 percent for the fourth month in a row. The labor force participation rate, at 62.2 percent, and the employment-population ratio, at 59.9 percent, were little changed over the month. Both measures remain below their


The Federal Reserve will probably see this jobs number as too hot and continue to raise interest rates, so the debate will continue whether we can return to the Goldilocks era of an economy that is not too hot (inflationary), or too cold (deflationary). MarketWatch economist Rex Nutting is warning of one obstacle to continued jobs growth, a looming shortage of working-age adults. The baby boomer population bulge of the 1970s has reached retirement age, and the millennials cohort of the 1990s, their offspring, will be approaching retirement age as well, as is seen in his graph of population growth rates.

And that means slowing economic growth as well, unless we allow more working-age adults to immigrate and invest in more productive technologies, since more workers producing more goods and services powers economic growth. How is this a sign of an impending recession? Companies are holding on to their workers for dear life, with one of the lowest unemployment rates in history. The rate was only lower in 1950, dipping to 2.5 percent during the record recovery from World War II.

So now we must worry about the Fed raising interest rates too “But now the tide is going out.

The Theatre Group at SBCC


Walks into a Musical...


By Daisy Scott / VOICE

ELCOME TO THE RENAISSANCE — where Shakespeare is the hottest ticket in town, and artistic and scientific revelations are made every day! Kicking its 76th season off with a bang, The Theatre Group at Santa Barbara City College invites audiences on a hilarious tale of Renaissance antics with its production of the musical Something Rotten! With director Katie Laris at the helm of a brilliant cast, the play’s impressive musical numbers and comic timing had audiences laughing out of their seats on opening night. Performances continue at Garvin Theatre through July 23rd. As in plays of yore, the curtain rises on a minstrel figure (Ben Watkins), decked in colorful garb and prepared to set the stage for the story of brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom (Nicholis Sheley and Daniel Sabraw). An aspiring, broke playwright, Nick grows increasingly frustrated by William Shakespeare’s (Nick Ehlen) celebrity status, which overshadows all his attempts for success. In desperation, he pays the soothsayer Nostradamus (Rod Lathim) to reveal the future of theatre, sending Nick on a madcap mission to create the very first musical. Peppered with witty references to Broadway musicals, Shakespeare, and history, Something Rotten! is a wacky, self-aware celebration of what makes theatre great. Its stellar cast embodies this, poking fun at the nonsensical nature of breaking into random song and dance — all while executing dazzling musical numbers, with animated choreography by Christina McCarthy. The play’s lively musical direction is by David Potter, who is celebrating 50 years of working with The Theatre Group of SBCC. As Nick and Nigel, Sheley and Sabraw distinguish themselves as standout performers

and singers. Sheley makes for a relatable protagonist, determined to make his mark on the world. Sabraw plays a more supportive role, as a bashful poet finding his voice.

in Something Rotten!

Daniel Sabraw and Hannah Brudney as Nigel and Portia

Ehlen’s performance as the haughty Shakespeare aptly plays off the brothers’ hopeful demeanors, casting a mischievously antagonistic glow about The Bard. As Nostradamus, Lathim almost steals the show with his upbeat rendition of A Musical, delivering jokes left and right. Exceptional acting and singing skills are also demonstrated by Madeleine Thomas, who plays Nick’s wife, Bea, and Hannah Brudney, who plays Portia, the daughter of a local Puritan leader, Brother Jeremiah (Willie Simpson). Simpson plays this role to a tee, carrying comical self-righteousness as he denounces the brothers’ play. The brothers ultimately rely on Shylock (Paul Canter), a Jewish theatre-lover who is forbidden from officially sponsoring plays due to religious discrimination. Canter’s comic delivery, combined with the play’s commentary on social restrictions placed on women, emphasizes that for all its progress, the Renaissance was far from progressive. A talented ensemble and supporting cast consistently bring the play’s set to life, decked in colorful, period-reflective costumes by costume designer Pamela Shaw. The play’s constantly-rotating sets, by Scene & Lighting designer Patricia L. Frank and Charge Scenic Artist Alex Grabow, further transport viewers to English city streets, cozy cottage interiors, and even to an early “Shakespeare in the park” extravaganza. With all these theatrical forces uniting in the same production, The Theatre Group at SBCC has outdone itself in presenting a fun, wacky musical perfect for Rodgers & Hammerstein fans and Shakespeare devotees alike.

The Arts Fund

Arrives at La Cumbre Plaza Art Walk Returns July 15th

By Daisy Scott / VOICE

ITH ITS DIVERSE, EVER-ROTATING EXHIBITIONS CELEBRATING COMMUNITY CREATIVITY IN ALL ITS FORMS, The Arts Fund’s Community Gallery remains a pillar of Santa Barbara’s art scene. On Friday, July 15th, from 5pm to 8pm, individuals and families can explore the gallery’s new home within the Museum of Sensory and Movement Experiences in La Cumbre Plaza as The Arts Fund relaunches its popular Art Walk. Open to all, the night will feature live music, children’s activities, and a plethora of works by local artists, including a pop-up show of Santa Barbara assemblage artist Ron Robertson.

Adding to the excitement, Friday’s Community Gallery opening marks the return of The Arts Fund’s popular Art Walk from 5 to 8pm, with a diverse array of art by local artists. Individuals and families can stroll between The Arts Fund’s gallery, tours at MSME, and the galleries that make up the La Cumbre Center for Creative Arts (LCCA) art collective: Elevate Gallery, Fine Line Gallery, and Illuminations Gallery. Each gallery will display pieces by LCCCA’s 24 members, with many artists in attendance to discuss their work. Children are also encouraged to take part in the fun by crafting their own masterpieces in an activity area with miniassemblage-making materials provided by Art from Scrap.

Formerly located in the Funk Zone, The Arts Fund Community Gallery moved to State Street, where it hosted community-driven shows through its Guest Curator program. The gallery’s new site arrives as The Arts Fund absorbs MSME, which media artist Marco Pinter launched in 2020. “The Arts Fund is super excited to be absorbing this museum because it’s expanding our community gallery programming by taking on this interactive museum and keeping that going,” shared Jamie Dufek, Acting Executive Director. “It’s really helping us reemerge into the community after COVID.”

This focus on assemblage directly ties to the grand opening of The Power of Objects: The Art of Ron, The Arts Fund’s solo show celebrating assemblage artist Ron Robertson. Originally focused on printmaking, Robertson studied in Japan before teaching at UC Santa Barbara and distinguishing himself as an innovative assemblage artist. The totality of his career, including sketches from his time as a designer with Ford, is represented in The Arts Fund’s show. Dancer by Kenji Fukudome

The location offers the non-profit a long-term, more accessible home thanks to the plaza’s free parking and central location. The organization will maintain the Sensory Museum’s focus while launching its free Community Gallery out of a space previously not open to the public. “Marco Pinter had a really distinct vision for that museum, really highlighting interactive media and arts,” said Dufek. “It’s really oneof-a-kind between LA and San Francisco as a full-on museum that is dedicated to people of all ages and specifically adults... We really want to keep that vision alive.” Pandora Column by Ron Robertson

The Community Gallery’s first show will reintroduce The Arts Fund to the larger community, highlighting its various programs, such as the Guest Curator program that invites community members to create their very own exhibitions. The show will also spotlight Arts Fund staff members and their

The result is a comprehensive show spanning Robertson’s full range of talent. Intriguing sculptures made of found objects, colorful prints, imaginative busts, and more adorn the gallery. Together, they provide insight into his inspirations, including political commentary and mythology. “I think a lot of people have seen Ron’s work,” said Dufek. “He showed in Sullivan Goss a few times, and numerous exhibitions throughout Santa Barbara and in other places. But I don’t think there has ever been a show where it is this much work all by him.”

Head of PandoraI by Ron Robertson

The Robertson Family Trust donated many of the show’s pieces. All gallery proceeds will support The Arts Fund’s programming. Local band Jayne Wayne — which features Robertson’s daughter and grandson — will also fill La Cumbre Plaza with music. The Power of Objects: The Art of Ron will remain open for two months. The next Arts Fund Community Gallery show, curated by local artist adriana la artista, will open on August 20th. The Arts Fund Community Gallery is open Wed-Sun, 12 to 5pm • 120 S Hope Ave, F119 • www.artsfundsb.org

Restoring the Great Arch

Santa Barbara Courthouse Legacy Foundation The Santa Barbara Courthouse is one of the most distinctive courthouses in America and its Great Arch is in need of restoration. Completed in 1929, in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, the building is a functioning courthouse, an iconic symbol of the Spanish heritage of Santa Barbara, a focal point for community festivals, concerts, weddings, and public events, and a landmark attraction for nationwide and international tourism. Because of this need, the Courthouse Legacy Foundation is now seeking financial support for an ongoing project to restore the Great Arch entrance into the Courthouse and its Sunken Gardens. Doorways under the Arch lead to the Courthouse lobby, active courtrooms, County offices, the famed Mural Room, and the Clock Tower. The Great Arch and Clock Tower are the most photographed features of the building. Over the years, the Great Arch has suffered weathering and

deterioration. A Comprehensive Conditions assessment of the Courthouse identified a number of restoration requirements for the Arch. Cracks and erosion in the sandstone masonry and cast-stone carvings and sculptures, have led to water infiltration and damage to stone and cast-stone features on the Arch. A previous attempt, at an unknown time in the past, to protect the stone and castings with a clear coating, has actually resulted in discoloration and further erosion of these features. There is also a potential danger that some pieces may fall onto public spaces. The ultimate goal of this project is to completely restore the Arch to its distinctive appearance as the signature entrance to a designated National Historic Landmark building and an iconic symbol of the Spanish heritage and identity of the city of Santa Barbara. In 2020 EverGreene Architectural Arts, Inc. performed the

sophisticated work of removing the degraded stone coating that was causing deterioration of the Great Arch. They conducted a multi-step analysis for best methods of treatment and followed Federal standards for preserving a National Historic Landmark. Their Phase I cleaning activity was completed on time and on budget for $175,000. The CLF is now focused on raising funds to begin Phase II of the conservation effort, which will address damage to the sandstone blocks, failed mortar joints, and loss of ornamental stone features on the Great Arch.

Legacy Foundation In 2004, a small group of committed citizens came together and formed the Santa Barbara Courthouse Legacy Foundation (CLF), dedicated to the conservation and restoration of this magnificent building for generations to come. The CLF ensures all conservation, restoration, and restoration projects meet federally mandated standards for a National Historic Landmark.
