Former Lt. Gov. to run for House

City weathers cold and rain


Abel Maldonado, the popular Republican who once served as California Lt. Governor, plans to challenge Rep. Lois Capps for the 23rd Congressional District seat in 2012. Maldonado, the son of immigrant farm workers who began his MALDONADO political career as a member of the Santa Maria City Council, filed paperwork Thursday to open a committee – a first step toward running for the seat.

After about 1.5 inches of rain on Friday, last night’s temperature was expected to drop to the low 30s, with snow possible.

DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT A steady, solid rain pounded Santa Barbara on Friday, flooding streets, soaking creeks and creating slippery roads. About 1.5 inches of rain fell as of late Friday night. Winds and saturated soil toppled a few trees around town. Authorities also closed some roads on the Riviera because of slick streets and fallen tree limbs. Snow in the mountains – possibly as low as 1,000 feet, was expected overnight. More rain is likely today, along with chilly temperatures. “Gusty southerly winds will produce dangerous winter storm conditions across the mountains,” according to the National Weather Service. Heavy thunderstorms are expected to hit the South Coast early Saturday morning before the sun breaks loose in the afternoon. The winds are also expected to pick up to possibly 20 miles per hour. Expect a cold Saturday night.

The temperature is expected to drop into the low 30s late Saturday and early Sunday morning. Forecasters expect rain on and off Saturday, before the clear skies arrive on Sunday afternoon.

Caltrans offered the following tips for motorists. • Reduce your speed in the early morning hours where Black Ice may develop, usually near bridges, underSee WEATHER, page 5

County officials denounce proposed state cuts to redevelopment agencies NEWS



Officials and business leaders from Santa Barbara County are protesting proposals to do away with state Redevelopment Agencies. Four mayors, a Ventura Council member, and representatives from the Towbes Group and the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce gathered at the Goleta Valley Community Center to denounce the cut being considered by California legislators. “Eliminating redevelopment will take away an opportunity for this community to enjoy a better quality of life,” Goleta Mayor Margaret Connell said. As part of his plan to close a $25 billion budget gap, Gov. Jerry Brown proposed eliminating Redevelopment Agencies statewide. Cash-strapped local governments across the state are up in arms with RDA funds, which is their only source for housing and safety infrastructure. In the fledgling city of Goleta, loss of RDA funds could put projects like the redesign of Old Town and the floodplain reduction on San Jose Creek. “These are nuts and bolts projects, infrastructure developments that are the necessary basis for economic and business improvements,” said Connell. Connell said that local governments understood that the economy would require reductions everywhere, but claimed that shutting down the RDA to save $1.7 billion seems foolish when the projects it funds add $40 billion to the California economy. “This is one [cut] that makes questionable economic sense,” Connell said. Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider pointed to projects in Santa Barbara such as Chase Palm Park and Paseo Nuevo that would not have gotten started without Redevelopment funds. Schneider also added that Redevelopment money helps cities lever-

‘The bottom line is, they are funds derived from that section of the community. They get spent in the community, they create jobs, and in our case, created tax revenue.’

– COUNCILMAN RANDY ROWSE age funding that would not otherwise be available, citing Mission Creek flood control projects as an example. “We could not do that without Redevelopment Agency money,” Schneider said. Joyce McCullough, executive director for Habitat for Humanity in Southern Santa Barbara County, later said that leverage is critical for many non-profit organizations. McCullough said Habitat is able to use RDA funds to leverage with private donations to acquire housing for low income families. At least 16 units in the Santa Barbara area have been created thanks to state funds. “The public partnership and the public funding that we use to leverage our building is crucial,” McCullough said. Other officials were fierier in their criticisms. Carl Morehouse, a Ventura City Council member and President of the Channel Counties Division of the League of California Cities, called the cancellation illegal and pointed to the passage of Proposition 22 that banned the state from taking funds used for local projects and development. “These are not state funds, they never were,” Morehouse said. “They are local funds raised locally and meant to be used

locally.” Lompoc Mayor John Linn took it a step further, saying that scrapping the RDA would lead to a deluge of lawsuits against the state that could come to more than the RDA’s budget. “If the legislature passes this, it will only be the beginning,” Linn said. “There will be an ongoing lawsuit and it will cost millions of dollars.” The protest wasn’t confined to politicians. Business leaders also claimed the loss of the RDA would hit the private sector as well. Craig Zimmerman, President of the Towbes Group, a realestate development company, said RDA funding had help with the Sumida Gardens which gave Goleta citizens affordable housing, and the expansion of the ATK Aerospace building which brought high-paying jobs into the city. “We see [Redevelopment Agencies] as really a model of the public-private partnerships that can be put together to solve our communities issues,” Zimmerman said. Kristen Amyx, President and CEO of the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce, said getting rid of the RDA would be like throwing the baby out with the bathwater. “We know cuts have to be made,” Amyx said. “But please don’t take away the one economic development tool that our cities have to pull ourselves up by the bootstraps.” Speaking after the conference, Randy Rowse, Santa Barbara City Council member and owner of the Paradise Café, said that RDA has its controversies— noting that he himself wasn’t sure how Paseo Nuevo would turn out—it’s been a good thing for downtown over the long run. “The bottom line is, they are funds derived from that section of the community,” Rowse said. “They get spent in the community, they create jobs, and in our case, created tax revenue.”

US hits Libya with sanctions

The United States imposed sanctions on the Libyan government on Friday and said the legitimacy of longtime Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi had been "reduced to zero." In response to Gaddafi's bloody crackdown on an uprising against his 41-year rule, President Barack Obama signed an executive order freezing the assets of Gaddafi, his family and top officials, as well as the Libyan government, the country's central bank and sovereign wealth funds. "These sanctions therefore target the Gaddafi government, while protecting the assets that belong to the people of Libya," Obama said in a statement. "By any measure, Muammar Gaddafi's government has violated international norms and common decency and must be held accountable," he added.

WI pushes on with union bill

Wisconsin Republicans seeking to curb the power of public sector unions tried on Friday to pressure absent Democrats to return home and vote on a plan that has sparked labor protests across the country. Fresh from a first round victory overnight, when the state Assembly passed the union bill along party lines, Republicans turned to trying to break a Democratic boycott of the Senate. Undaunted by the setback in the Assembly, U.S. labor groups planned for large demonstrations in Madison and in every state capital in the nation on Saturday to fight the proposal they see as trying to break the union movement. What began two weeks ago as Republicans in one relatively small U.S. state trying to balance the budget by rewriting local labor relations rules has turned into a major national confrontation between the GOP and business interests on one side, and the Democrats backed by union groups on the other.

Truce called in state water battle

Environmentalists, farmers and other combatants in California's big water fight over a little fish called a temporary truce on Thursday. Attorneys for state and federal agencies joined in a proposed settlement over the tiny Delta smelt, agreeing to allow diversions of some water from rivers to farms but putting conditions on any such pumping. The smelt battle is emblematic of the larger water war in California, which pits conservationists against businesses and is likely to grow more intense as the state's population rises. The settlement, which must be approved by a federal judge, would put the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in charge of decisions about withdrawals through the end of June and requires it use the best available science and real-time data.


Poster contest brings attention to dating violence in SB County BY NICK C. TONKIN


In the realm of commonly committed but rarely reported crimes, abuse between dating teenagers sat in the shadows for many years. But with President Barack Obama declaring February National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month, activists have reached out to the teenagers themselves to cast light on the problem. Domestic Violence Solutions, a nonprofit organization that provides support services to victims of domestic violence, held the first annual poster design competition. Of the 189 submissions, the organization honored the 26 finalists and announced the winners at a reception with over one hundred attendees in the Faulkner Gallery last night. The contest is part of month-long campaign by Domestic Violence Solutions, called “What is Love?” which aims to teach first-time blossoming romantics what love is and what love is not. DVS Teen Program director Christy Haynes said that 1-in-3 teenagers in Santa Barbara County reported being in an abusive relationship but most never tell anyone what’s going on. With those kinds of numbers it’s important to raise awareness early. “A lot of teens don’t even know that they’re in a relationship that is abusive or unhealthy,” Haynes said. The idea for the competition came to Claudette Roehrig, co-president of DVS, when she heard the 1-in-3 statistic last

‘A lot of teens don’t even know that they’re in a relationship that is abusive or unhealthy.’


fall. Roehrig said her maternal instinct roared up and she knew she had to do something. “I literally had a dream about getting the teens to help us get the word out,” Roehrig said. “And what better way to do it than with art and creativity.” Roehrig said the campaign isn’t about the pitfalls of being in a relationship, but also about the benefits of being in a healthy relationship. “Everybody wants to be in love, but they don’t always know what love looks like,” Roehrig said. DVS executive director Richard Kravetz said domestic violence is one of the least discussed, but most dangerous issues in America. “A lot of people don’t realize that nationwide more police officers are killed responding to domestic violence calls than any other,” Kravetz said. Kravetz noted that domestic violence is something that gets passed on from generation to generation as the abused grow up and become the abusers. Getting counseling for teens before they perpetuate the cycle is critical for making a difference.

“If we can bring dating violence and domestic violence out of the shadows, we make a difference and we make a change,” Kravetz said. Kees t’Sas, one of the student finalists, said he entered the competition as an optional assignment in a media arts class, but he likes the work DVS does for the community. “It’s an honor to be a part of it,” t’Sas said. Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider attended the event to announce the winners and voice her support for the work they’ve done. “What an opportunity you have here to show your creativity, to raise your voice, and to do something that’s going to help your friends, help your parents, help your siblings, and help yourselves,” Schneider told the crowd of students. 1st place went to Santa Barbara High School student Francis Grafton. Grafton’s haunting design, a letterbox frame of a woman’s mouth with a finger in front of it, colorless except for a red fingernail and a drop of blood trickling down the side of her face with the words, “Stop the Silence, End the Violence,” above and below the frame. 2000 copies of the finalists’ posters will be put up around Santa Barbara County and Grafton’s design will adorn a specially made T-shirt Grafton’s win caught her by surprise, but she’s hopeful her design will raise awareness of the issue. “It’s such a silent problem that most people just don’t know about,” Grafton said.

With the vote, Maldonado has attempted to paint himself as a moderate conservative, capable of bridging political divides. A Maldonado candidacy would turn plans for the future of the 23rd Congressional District on their head. Many local elected officials have been angling to run for the seat once Capps leaves office. Capps’ daughter Laura has also considered running for the seat down the road. Maldonado, 43, has experienced one of the more remarkable rises in recent political history. His parents grew strawberries on their farm in the Santa Maria Valley. Maldonado decided to run for the Santa Maria City Council after he became frustrated with the family’s inability to secure permits to build a cooling facility at the site. He ran for City Council and easily won. He was only 26. Two years later he ran for Mayor and was elected, ousting the incumbent. There was no stopping the charismatic Maldonado. From there he was elected to the state Assembly, then the state senate. He tasted his first political defeat in 2005 when he lost a bid for state controller. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed Maldonado to Lt. Governor in 2009, but he lost in his effort to claim the seat in 2010 to Gavin Newsom. Now Maldonado is hoping his run for the 23rd District will return him to his winning ways. But Rep. Capps seems undeterred.

The voters of California’s 23rd congressional district just asked her to continue to represent them in Congress, and that’s what she’s focused on doing right now—her job. “She’s working on behalf of her constituents to create the jobs of today and tomorrow, ensure our workforce is pre-

Chromatic Gate sparks emotion

DAILY SOUND / Victor Maccharoli

The Chromatic Gate, installed in 1991. is seen as an eyesore by some, and a piece of the city by others.



The mysterious Chromatic Gate rainbow art sculpture on Santa Barbara's waterfront is at the center of controversy amid Santa Barbara's effort to transform the Cabrillo Ball Field. City officials and business owners have proposed everything from basketball and handball courts to a dog run and a walking track. But some people are wondering whether the city's Chromatic Gate should be part of the Cabrillo Ball Field's future. “Take out the rainbow Chromatic Gate and relocate it somewhere else,” said Theresa Pena. “I’ve lived in Santa Barbara all my life and when that went up…so many people, friends and family, were like, ‘What? A rainbow gate? Ok, well, how does that represent Santa Barbara?” Across the street from Fess Parker’s Doubletree Resort rests a sallow, geometric monument to disregard. The steel, once rainbow-colored sculpture, Herbert Bayer’s Chromatic Gate, stands 21 feet high and weighs a hefty 12.5 tons. With Santa Barbara’s continuous flow of collegiate and sun-lusty tourists, it’s easy to forget that this town has a remarkable and passionate history. While the city is very much a modern work in progress, the graying beast of Bayer’s Gate is an ever-present reminder that our legacy, at times, is left in the shadows. Herbert Bayer The Chromatic Gate represents a modern and abstract period for its famed creator,

Herbert Bayer. Bayer was an industrial, environmental, and graphic designer who dabbled in architecture, painting, sculpting and photography. He, however, is best known as the last surviving master of Germany’s renowned Bauhaus school. There, Bayer studied mural painting and typography under the likes of legendary artists like Wassily Kandinsky and László Moholy-Nagy. Bayer eventually taught advertising layout and typography at Bauhaus. He is responsible for much of the school’s iconic pieces of text—later to influence the creation of Helvetica font. In 1928, Bayer left Bauhaus to become the Art Director of Vogue magazine’s Berlin office. A decade later, motivated by the war, Bayer immigrated to the United States where he worked in Aspen, Colorado. He eventually moved to Montecito in 1975 to live out the remaining years of his life. Bayer’s work is steeped with a utopian vision. He embraced interdisciplinary art, gathering inspiration from an assortment of sources—even furniture or stage design. He believed art should be stripped to its barest essentials, but that it needed to enrich the modern world by daring to push aesthetics as a seminal place in life.

History of the Gate Bayer’s Chromatic Gate was brought to Santa Barbara’s East Beach in 1991. It was constructed as a memorial to both Bayer and his wife Joella, by Paul Mills, the longestserving Art Director at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. See SCULPTURE, page 10

Middle East, Oil and Real Estate? Daily Sound

Dear S&B: Oil prices are rising and the turmoil oversees makes me concerned about our economic recovery and markets, what is your take? – Ron, Santa Barbara

Three themes are materializing right now...Middle East upheaval, rising oil prices and a stalling housing market. Talk shows are bringing up terms such as “stagflation” and reminders of the 1970’s. Let’s hope we don’t go down that road. Should we be more concerned with inflation, unrest or deflation? Probably a little of all but the reality is that we have no personal control over it and except for deflation, the outcomes may actually be beneficial. We are not political scientists but it should come as no surprise that when you have millions of unemployed young people living under repression, that you get some pissed off people. The “emerging” economies of the world represent two main factors: the majority of the world population and youth. There is no doubt that these factors will change the global economic landscape. The outcome is yet to be determined but we are hopeful that the human desire to have a better life will prevail in the end. What about oil prices? According to

Ask Seth & Brad

Goldman Sachs, “our estimates are subject to considerable uncertainty but suggest that a persistent 10% increase in crude oil prices might reduce the growth rate of real GDP by an average of 0.2 percentage point during the subsequent two years—that is, lower the level of real GDP by 0.2% and 0.4% after one and two years, respectively.” If this were to be the case, the impact appears to be fairly nominal with estimates in GDP growth around the 3% level. Personal consumption is adversely impacted by rising oil prices because there is less money to spend on other goods and that trickles down to business spending and inventory accumulation. While oil prices have gone up, we already had these changes figured in our estimates long ago

just due to worldwide economic growth estimates and increased consumption. While the uncertainty oversees is the talk of the day, we contend that society should be a little more concerned with our stalling housing market. Recently there has been talk about Freddie and Fannie lending institutions coming to an end. If that occurs, the safe assumption would be for “government” backed loans to be replaced by even tighter lending standards, less availability of money and probably higher rates. It is hard to imagine that housing prices will not be put under further downward pressure if that were to occur. With all this uncertainty domestically and internationally, the good news is that the economic indicators and reports we are viewing continue to show fairly solid growth estimates. Continued higher oil prices and geopolitical uncertainty almost certainly puts downward pressure on future growth. But shouldn’t we somewhat be accustomed to “uncertainty” by now? That seems to be the only common theme in life. So what to do? Just remember…change creates opportunities. However, it does not create comfort. Wealth Management: The world is large and you can only control an extremely limited piece of it. The sooner you come


Saturday, February 26, 2011


to this realization, the more comfort you may gain in financial decisions. But it is true this realization can also scare people to death. It is just reality so try to control what you can…your personal spending, the amount of debt you assume, your savings rate, etc. Investment Management: If life were not full of surprises, the word would not exist. We can’t stress how important a globally diversified portfolio is for investors. Not only does it statistically reduce risk but almost certainly some “slivers of the pie” will increase as others go down during times of change. Make sure your portfolio matches your risk and time horizons. Greed and fear will constantly pull at you…try to resist knee jerk reactions that are emotionally charged. Risk Management: Again, surprises exist…health can change overnight, accidents can happen, nature can turn on us. Have your insurance policies checked at least once per year and especially review coverage you don’t have in place. If you have a questions you would like answered, please submit them to

In your house, Sundays belong to God. Even before you get up, you start Sundays with prayer. You put on your best clothes and open your mind to receive the Lord. You might have breakfast, or you might fast before you head over to church – either way, you’re hungry for The Word. You can’t wait to get it. In the new novel “The Choir Director” by Carl Weber, Bishop T.K. Wilson’s First Jamaica Church is hungry for a good music leader. What they don’t need is any more scandal. First Jamaica Ministries was in trouble. After what happened with the last choir director, attendance was down on Sundays which meant low donations. With bills to pay, Bishop T.K. Wilson knew he had to find a good musical director to renew his congregation. But he wanted the best. Aaron Mackie was the best, and he always dreamed of leading a church choir in a place like Queens. Sure, he was swayed by the money the Bishop was offering, but a chance at greatness was even better. It was also a chance to escape a past Mackie didn’t want made public. Ever since Monique became First Lady of First Jamaica, all eyes were on her but that was okay. People could watch all they wanted. Monique loved her husband, and there was nothing she would do to hurt him. As long as past secrets stayed buried, everything would be just fine. For most of her life, sexy Simone Wilcox got what she wanted. If she couldn’t get it


FROM PAGE 6 “There was a certain amount of frustration when Paul Mills and I went before City council to get approval for the installation of the sculpture,” said Paul Hobson, the technical coordinator and curatorial assistant of the sculpture at the time of installation. “Mayor Lodge made the statement that there was no need for public art in Santa Barbara...that the art is in the gardens and red tile roofs.” The monument was funded privately, the largest portion of money donated from the ARCO company, for whom Bayer had worked as a design consultant in the 1960s. The area in which the monument stands is dubbed ‘the Arco Circle.’ To many residents, the Gate was an aesthetic failure. The city and county fielded complaints that its colors ran too bright. “I used to joke that you had to put a red tile roof on top of a sculpture to get something accepted in Santa Barbara,” joked Rita Ferri, Visual Arts Coordinator and Curator of Collections at the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission. “There’s a lot of misunderstanding about it,” said Ginny Brush, Executive Director at the County Arts Commission. “I’ve heard

from Daddy, she would get it from the next man in her life because she knew how to use her charms. So when Simone set her sights on the new choir director, she figured it was only a matter of time before she was Mrs. Aaron Mackie. Over in the hospital, James Black was dying. James was a rascal in his day and had made too many enemies. Now there was nobody by his bedside but his old friend, Bishop T.K. Wilson. James and the Bishop were like brothers, and James knew First Jamaica was struggling. He wanted to help, but about the only thing a dying man can offer is information. And James had plenty of that… Let’s cut to the chase: “The Choir Director” is filled with cash, trash, and flash. Most of the characters are awful, scheming people, most of whom you’d shun in real life. The situations are over-the-top shameful. Author Carl Weber brings his readers back to First Jamaica Ministries, a place that seems to attract more backstabbing than blessings and more trouble than tithes. And I haven’t had this much fun reading a novel in a long time. Seriously, this stuff is great when you’re in the mood for something nasty. I was. I loved it. Be aware that there are, or course, “fourletter words” and situations in this book, but if you’re looking for something wild to read, grab this. A few hours with “The Choir Director” and you’ll be singing its praises, too. everything from, ‘it’s a Chumash rainbow,’ to ‘it’s a gay symbol,’ to ‘I don’t know what all.’”

Restoration Regardless of its aesthetic appeal, the Chromatic Gate has suffered from extreme exposure in its marine environment. The salt air and bright sun of its ocean-side view has oxidized its metal and blanched its color. Restoration requires much work. “Paint chips were kept in a vault inside the museum,” Brush explained. “Because there was a standard to be matched [in restoration]; which, now, doesn’t meet environmental standards.” “I would say the challenges are the same as any other piece of public art,” said Ferri. “Anything that’s out in the public, whatever material, starts decomposing the moment you put it up. That is a big issue: all public art requires maintenance.” At the time of its construction, the Chromatic Gate set aside money for maintenance and restoration, which was used for over a decade. “This is a nationwide problem,” said Brush. “The people who put public art [together] never thought about sustainability or on how to maintain it over the long haul. There’s [no] See GATEWAY, page 12

Vaqueros overpower Cypress 7-3 SPORTS



SBCC used an 11-hit attack to down Cypress 7-3 on Friday in a nonconference baseball game at Cypress. Eli Michaels, Robert Vickers and Zach Pecyna all had two hits for the Vaqueros (4-7), who took a 4-0 lead in the second inning. They were up 4-3 in the fifth when Michaels walked and Tommy White reached on an error. After

FROM PAGE 10 funding vehicle in place to do that.” The County Arts Commission is working in conjunction with the city’s Committee for Visual Art in Public Places to find resources for restoration on all its public art. “I think we like everyone else we’re looking more to the private sector,” said Brush. “I’m raising private funds,” said Ferri. “I’m having to go to Los Angeles or Colorado—going to art dealers. And I have been appealing to all those people to come up with funds.” “There really is very little public money out there that saves public art,” Ferri continued. “We rely on passionate individuals who [want to] try to protect and save art.” Beyond relying on private foundations and the generosity of individuals, the County and City are working together on institutionalizing procedures regarding public art. The County Arts Commission is working with the City Arts Advisory Committee on a cultural arts advancement plan to designate how to make public art self-sustaining and how to develop funds for its maintenance. In the last several years, there has also been a concentrated effort on developing maintenance manuals and maintenance schedules for every piece of public art displayed. Regardless of innovative modes in collaboration, public art, and especially the Chromatic Gate, fields its share of public criticism. At a recent meeting of the city’s Parks & Recreation Commission, the Gate saw pushback in regard to redevelopment on its neighboring Cabrillo Ball Field. “I would like to…add something [of] a little more historical value,” said Matt La Vine, general manager at the Fess

a groundout moved the runners up, Shay Maltese drilled an RBI single and White scored on an infield error to make it 6-3. The Vaqueros had four extra-base hits, including the first homer of the year. Daniel Howell’s towering shot with two outs in the sixth made it 7-3. Vickers and Cody Giordano knocked in two runs apiece. “We put better swings on the ball today,” said coach Ryan Thompson. “We

had two two-out rallies and we played sound defense.” Left-hander Chris Joyce picked up his first win, allowing three runs on seven hits in six innings. He struck out five and walked four. Colby Morse pitched the last three innings to notch his first save. The Vaqueros will be home for the next two games against Irvine Valley (Monday, 1 p.m.) and El Camino (Tuesday, 2 p.m.).

businesses. The County Arts Commission has recently announced that it will participate in an economic impact study to evaluate this revenue stream in the current fiscal climate. “When you think about all the famous people that have lived in Santa Barbara,” said Ferri. “There’s a picture of Albert Einstein on the beach; we read about famous authors [like] T.C. Boyle. Santa Barbara is really in some ways a Mecca for very creative, talented, brilliant people.” Ferri had the honor of meeting Bayer in the early 1980s. “I always remember this story: he and his wife Joella lived in Montecito, but they also lived in Morocco in the 1950s. He was always impressed by the bright colors and strong contrasts of the sun and the shadows [there]. And that started him using those progressive pigments he uses. But he also loved the fact that when he would travel in Morocco, sometimes he would come to a place where there would be gates out in the desert…there would be no people living there. There would be an archway and nothing else. He saw that as a beautiful symbol. A lonely symbol. That man leaves everything behind. A life once lived there. But an archway was a dimension. A romantic gesture.” “If I had my druthers, the Gate would be in the sand,” Ferri continued, “where it’s supposed to be.” Bayer always felt that a modern city needed a symbol of human thought. And indeed, in the great cities of the nation, from St. Louis to New York, you do find iconic arches. “It has become a little bit more of our culture,” Ferri said wistfully on the Chromatic Gate. “I think it would be rather sad to lose something like that simply because nobody cared. He left a piece of art in Santa Barbara and hoped that we would take care of it.”

How It Represents Santa Barbara “Public art, in some instance defines [cities] as destinations,” said Brush. “Art adds a certain ambience; it helps to define the region.” Though people were not enthusiastic about the Chromatic Gate at its inception, Brush contends that overtime it has come to define the waterfront. “It’s a part of what people expect,” she said, “and what they’re used to seeing.”

‘I think it would be rather sad to lose something like that simply because nobody cared. He left a piece of art in Santa Barbara and hoped that we would take care of it.’


Beyond defining the landscape of Santa Barbara, public art, Brush argued, has added to its local economy. Materials used for public art are purchased in the city and its artists continue to spend revenue downtown. In 2007, nonprofit arts and culture in Santa Barbara County was a $77.6 million industry and one that supported 2,288 full-time jobs (one of which was held by this fledgling reporter). The arts generated $7.62 million in local and state government revenue and built audiences at local restaurants, hotels, retail stores, parking garages and other local
