To us it’s simple - smart people want smart banking. Come in and talk to us today about making the smart move. You’ll wish you had done it sooner.

LETTER FROM THE EDITORIAL DIRECTOR

FORTY YEARS OF SANTA BARBARA IS HARD TO CAPTURE IN ONE CELEBRATORY ISSUE. It’s too hard

to sum up what makes this town great—we struggle with it every issue, not just this anniversary. How do you bottle all of Santa Barbara’s magic into one place? How can you translate what makes this place perfect? It’s near impossible…but yet, we still try. It is probably because we (the editors) are all deeply in love with this place—it’s a sort of love that stays with you, haunting for years to come. Personally, I fell for it more than two decades ago and my love of our town has only grown deeper. The first time I smelled the jasmine and orange blossom-scented air, I was hooked. That the city’s architecture and style matched the flora and fauna was only an added bonus. Luckily, being a young teen, my father and mother fell for it even harder and were bound and determined to make it our home one day. My Midwestern youth was wonderful but was no match for the promised land of this fantastical place. Countless pleas from me and my brother to move west were finally met. I have no regrets changing high schools half way through to come here, as I made so many wonderful friends on the shores of Hope Ranch Beach during my first golden summer (and countless friends since). As I grew older, my appreciation for our city deepened in a more mature way. I saw new things every day with open and wiser eyes. The simple things like the farmers markets, the healthy living mantra worked into every aspect of daily routines, and the incredible educational and cultural institutions are just a few examples. In fact, while travelling abroad recently, I met a woman who told me that she had known someone who had hired a team to find the best place to live in America. They spent a year researching every great spot in our country and the end result was that Santa Barbara was the best place for their client to make a life. I couldn’t agree more. Our family didn’t discover it through a team of experts but through destiny…and both paths lead to our version of paradise. Back to the dilemma of how to capture all this magic in one special issue—it’s impossible. So instead, we chose to focus on many aspects that make this town mythical. There are the creative citizens (“Beautiful Minds,” page 166) that add so much to the fabric of our shores; the burgeoning cultural, arts, and music scene (“Music from the 805,” page 126); the top-notch wineries dotting our valleys (“Layers of the Land,” page 115); the sporting culture—surfing, skating, hiking, sailing, and more—(“Coming Full Circle,” page 146), and our often-imitated style of red tile roofs, adobe walls, not to mention the exquisite gardens that sprawl out from Montecito’s fabled estates (“Gardens of Eden,” page 136). All of this and so much more add up to one spectacular spot. It is home, and what a home it is. Thank you for letting Santa Barbara Magazine be a part of this community for the last four decades, it is a true honor.

“I published the Shriners book in 2004. My grandfather was one and I love when adults dress up and pretend, especially guys,” says Eisner; a handmade simbircite butterfly necklace exclusively for Tom Ford’s Spring/ Summer 2015 collection; wearing her bird ring in a layered glam moment; bronze and turquoise necklace, lisaeisnerjewelry.com.

f I could pick my spirit animal, it would be Lisa Eisner. Like an exotic bird, Eisner’s eclectic feathers fly high in a cacophony of color, originality, and distinct, utterly electric savoir-faire. Herewith, the artist shares her love affair with Santa Barbara, the magic of Beatrice Wood fairy dust, trinkets for Tom Ford, and late night lanes with Bob Dylan after a show at the Bowl. I understand there was love in the stars for you in the 805? When

I first started dating Eric, my husband of 30 years, I was working in New York and he invited me to join him in Los Angeles. He took me to the Biltmore for the weekend and I will never forget swimming in the Coral Casino pool. I think it’s the best swimming pool in the world. And we fell in love that weekend, so Santa Barbara is super special for me. You had a long relationship with Beatrice Wood, it must have been a magical time. Some friends and I would drive up to Ojai and have

lunch with Beatrice a couple times a year. We got to eat on her lusterware fish plates, listen to her tales of men, and just watch her and check out all the rings on each finger and all the bracelets and necklaces and wallow in her colored sari. We would roam through her house and garden and studio and look at her newest projects and smell the scent of the almond groves and orange groves…. It was heaven on earth. I treasure a necklace I still have that she made of 64

ceramic beads in all her glazes with one antique Indian piece as the pendant. And, all the great Beatrice Wood fairy dust all over it! Your current inspirations? I was lucky enough to befriend Tony

Duquette when I first moved to Los Angeles, and he continues to be an inspiration. I recently went back to his home, Dawn Ridge—it just

LISA’S S.B. GARDEN GO-TOs Lotusland, 805-969-9990, lotusland.org. Ganna Walska was like Duquette in her theatrical original mind. Art Luna, my friend and landscape designer, takes me to Seaside Gardens, 805-684-6601, seaside-gardens.com, in Carpinteria for proteas and exotics plants, and Gazebo Flowers & Plants, 805-969-4367, gazeboflowers.net, in Montecito that has all the great begonias. Another wonderful garden is Casa Del Herrero, 805-5655653, casadelherrero.com, I love that old George Washington Smith house.

blew me away again. No one had his mind and crazy imagination. He was such a great artist—he would take beautiful expensive antiques and throw them in a blender with everyday common Home Depot fencing or car hubcaps and make some crazy screen or some sculpture for his garden. He was old Hollywood movies come to life. He always would wear amazing ethnic robes and big jade archer rings. His wife,

“I never wear one piece of jewelry…that would make me feel so naked.” Beegle, was so beautiful and chic, there is and never will be anyone like him. And his jewelry…. Forget about it! He would create jewelry like he was the king of his own tribe. I would volunteer to jump into a volcano for him—of course, decked out in all his adornment! They would have to carry me up the mountain I would have so much on. Must haves for summer in your closet?

I’m a vintage girl, so lots of vintage couture, sundresses, Mexican Oaxacan embroidered dresses (I have them in every color), some Tom Ford little black dresses, and lots of caftans. A piece of jewelry that is the epitome of you and why? Well, it could be so many.

For sure some of my original Duquette pieces—very big and heavy and tribal. But I love my Tina Chow pieces, and also Art Smith. I would like to be a combo of all three of those: Tony Duquette’s ethnic/ Hollywood, Tina Chow’s clean beautiful crystals, and Art Smith’s African American, big sculptural pieces. I never wear one piece of jewelry…that would make me feel so naked. What would a collection inspired by Santa Barbara look like? My Santa Barbara

collection would be influenced by Ganna Walska and Beatrice Wood. Very nature inspired, over-the-top. Beatrice always wore her saris and ethnic Indian jewelry, so I would mix that in. And color—pink something, turquoise, maybe some wood pieces with jewels embedded. –GINA TOLLESON

WHAT’S NOW SUMMERLAND

With a stunning location overlooking , the friendly little the Pacific beach town of Summerland has evolved from a turn-of-the-century spiritualists’ colony into a lively locale for a day of shopping, noshing, and relaxation. An array of residences hug the hillside, while a leisurely stroll along Lillie Avenue, the main thoroughfare, reveals clapboard cottages and contemporary spaces that house clothing boutiques, art and antique emporiums, inspiring home and garden decor, chic salons, fitness studios, and spas (even a grooming spot for your four-legged pals). In this community, the emphasis is on women’s and men’s apparel and accessories that are attuned to the Santa Barbara lifestyle—from beachwear to casual elegance—and on furnishings that fit the American Riviera’s penchant for indooroutdoor living. The mind-body connection gets its share of attention, too, with training facilities for sports and health enthusiasts and serene spots for meditation and beauty treatments. Meals? There are myriad choices, beginning with a hearty breakfast or brunch; burgers, deli fare, or more for lunch; and convivial gathering spots for drinks and dinner with friends. If the urge to linger longer takes hold, that’s not a problem. You’ll find inns that make it possible to stretch those delightful Summerland hours into several days or more. –JOAN TAPPER

LIFE THROUGH THE LENS For the last decade, Joni Sternbach has traveled the world creating tintype portraits—images produced by creating a direct positive on a thin sheet of metal coated with a dark lacquer or enamel for photographic emulsion—of surfers using the 19th-century wet-plate collodion process to create Surf Site Tin Type ($45, Damiani, available at Chaucer’s Bookstore, 805-682-6787, chaucersbooks .com). Working with a large-format camera and using handpoured plates that she prepares and develops on location, Sternbach profiles a fascinating range of influential surfers on some of the world’s most beloved beaches, all with a patina of romance, adventure, and artistry. –CHARLOTTE BRYANT

TOP TO BOTTOM: Sternbach’s 2014 Hendry’s Beach, three unique tintypes, 10 x 8 in. each; the book, with text by photo critic Lyle Rexer, curator April M. Watson, and surfers/ filmmakers Chris Malloy and Johnny Abegg.

Hanging bulbs, brick walls, and works from Santa Barbara artist Sean Anderson adorn the Funk Zone’s newest addition, Nuance. The hip bistro on lower State Street features a locally sourced menu and acute attention to detail. “Growing up in Santa Barbara has fostered a sense of community, family, culture, and commitment to sustainability from an early age that inspired my passion,” says head chef Courtney Ladin. Indeed, the only (welcome) deviation from local custom seems to be the fact that the kitchen stays open until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights. –C.B.

and artisans in the 1970s, the harbor warehouse district had cheap rent and was ripe for squatting. In 1972, Ruth S. Schaffner, who was interacting with artists such as Marcel Duchamps, Salvador Dalí, and Mark Rothko, notably opened an enormous gallery—years ahead of Los Angeles— in the heart of the Funk Zone and was the first major contemporary art dealer and gallery owner to see Santa Barbara as an important center for the arts outside of Los Angeles. Forty years later, visitors to Santa Barbara’s bohemian destination, the Funk Zone, funkzone.net, (often compared to Cannery Row), wind their way through a multitude of popular wineries, breweries, eateries, and galleries in the span of just a few blocks. While gentrification has inevitably changed the landscape of one of the only areas amnestied from Santa Barbara’s prevailing Spanish style, the neighborhood retains a sprinkle of artists, quirky murals, layers of history and charm—and, naturally, an official logo. –C.B.

Together with winemaker Nat Gunter and creative director Derek Galkin, Charles and Ali Banks are cultivating change through the local liquid currency, wine. Their label, Cultivate, launched in 2011 and has sourced juices from vineyards all over the world. Their model donates the first 10 cents of every dollar to a variety of nonprofit organizations working in everything from education to basic human needs in communities across the country. Their goal? Give customers the power to express their values through wine’s greatest power—its ability to bring people together. “Americans have rediscovered the family table, and a bottle of wine has a role to play in that,” says Gunther. Atlanta natives with a home in Montecito, the Banks developed what they call “connected capitalism” as a more consistent way to give back, proving that while a business certainly must turn a profit, it can also be a powerful agent in solving various global issues in a way that governments never could. “The Terrior portfolio, terroirselections.com, is an extension of how Charles and Ali see the world and form friendships,” explains Galkin. “Cultivate is the opportunity to have an extension of our worldview.” Look for a new Pinot Noir from Gunter and Jamey Whetstone sourced from Sonoma and Monterey this September. –C.B.

allpaper in a bathroom is not particularly unusual. Flocked wallpaper, on the other hand, reveals…an obsession perhaps? “I went crazy with wallpaper!” confides Nora McNeely Hurley. “I took remnants and have different papers on each surface.” Upon crossing the threshold of the modernist home she shares with her musician husband Michael and their two dogs, a cacophony of swirling blues and shimmering silvers wash over visitors as if the ocean itself—only yards away—has crashed into the living room and spilled into every nook and cranny, leaving behind shells and sea glass in every hue. And wallpaper on every wall. Both Hurleys hail from Minnesota, and Nora’s childhood spent between an island in White Bear Lake and California’s Pebble Beach makes the watery theme no surprise. That Midwestern traditional (read: preppy) upbringing runs deep and infused her work as an event planner and interior designer with exuberant touches of Sister Parish meets The Mod Squad. Then in 2011, she was diagnosed with Ménière’s disease and now grapples with the loss of her hearing and extreme vertigo. A tough blow for a woman married to a musician and deeply engaged with the performing arts. “It’s been a journey,” she says, “but I wanted to turn that stress into creative energy, so the hunt for a new house was on!” That lemons-into-lemonade spirit bubbles—literally—throughout the interiors. Inspired by all things oceanic, the color palette of turquoise, azure, sea foam, and silvery gray blurs the line between crashing waves outside and furry footstools inside. Serious, the Hurleys are not. In the guest bath, a finial of egret feathers sprouts like a fluffy fountain from the top of a vintage lamp. Or the white wood Buddha who is bejeweled from head to toe because “that’s how he likes it!” Furnishing the entire space from Internet finds while nestled into the sleeping porch of her Minnesota family home meant few pieces from their previous home made the move. “Let me interject here. Probably 95 percent of what is here was bought on One Kings Lane,” says Michael with a sense of amused wonder. But serious treasures do live along side hammerwielding Viking gods. Tony Duquette whirligigs made of sea urchins and starfish sit astride a fireplace with Chinese dolphin andirons. An early 19th-century table handpainted with mermaids hovers in the reflection of a silver-leaf art nouveau mirror. And the piece that trumps it all—a small table displaying hundreds of tiny seashells collected during walks on the beach with her mother. “It’s my favorite thing,” says Nora. “I’m going to make everything around me beautiful. That will be my life,” says a framed Elsie de Wolfe quote. “Only,” as Nora adds, “in a Technicolor way!” –DAWN MOORE

The brainchild of real-estate developer Jim Rickard (a fifth-generation Santa Barbaran and descendant of the De La Guerra family), DLG Lighting Co. brings beautifully custom-designed outdoor mounted fixtures to customers in a facile way all while celebrating our town’s lush history and character. “As a developer, I found it impossible to find quality off-the-shelf lighting,” says Rickard. “The only source seemed to be custom, which is often tedious and time consuming. I saw a market for high-quality lighting without the time and work required by the custom process.” Rickard met notable Santa Barbara architect Britt Jewett in 2008 while collaborating on a project. Impressed by Jewett’s “refined aesthetic and eye for balancing proportions,” Rickard dove into creating a collection that’s “unique in that it’s architecturally designed and has a look specific to us.” Each of the 20-plus classically inspired designs (from $795) utilizes top-quality iron and glass and can be made in a variety of finishes and sizes. “I find inspiration in the traditional details of hand-wrought iron,” says Jewett. “They intuitively convey a handmade character to our designs.” Look out for future collaborations with additional designers and new items as DLG builds on its aesthetic. –GINA Z.

CULTURE

Wholly Moholy THE FLIRTATION BETWEEN ART AND TECHNOLOGY continues today, despite continued predictions that painting as an art form will succumb in technology’s wake. Hungarian artist László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946)—whose innovative use of technology to manipulate light and space presaged the work of contemporary artists like Robert Irwin—also prophesized painting’s demise, yet continued to make paintings throughout his life. “The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come” at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art from July 5 through September 27, skillfully examines this apparent conundrum. Guest curated by art historian Joyce Tsai and overseen by the museum’s chief curator Eik Kahng, the show postulates that Moholy’s paintings—often integrating “new” materials like Formica and Plexiglas—enabled him to depict artistic concepts that technology was unable to achieve during his lifetime. In the scholarly catalogue accompanying the exhibition, Kahng deems Moholy’s approach “a very functional alternative for an artistic mind so far ahead of existing technology.” Renowned Santa Barbara industrial designer Alex Rasmussen, nealfeay.com, is lending his talents to the exhibition’s installation with custom-made anodized aluminum “interventions” (partitions, benches, and other items) inspired by Moholy’s own artistic experimentation with aluminum. No doubt Moholy would have approved. –L.D. PORTER SANTA BARBARA MUSEUM OF ART 1130 State St., Santa Barbara, 805-963-4364, sbmuseart.org. Maholy-Nagy’s Untitled (Space Modulator), 1946, oil on Plexiglas, 14 1/2 x 8 1/2 in., McMaster Museum of Art, McMaster University.

ART OF WAR THE POWER OF PHOTOGRAPHY to portray the human condition is never more apparent than in wartime, when a single image can galvanize public opinion and provoke political action. The Vietnam War generated its share of indelible images, many taken by noted photojournalist NIK WHEELER, whose work is especially pertinent this year as the world commemorates the 40th anniversary of the fall of Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City), which ended the war and prompted the largest helicopter evacuation in history. Wheeler, on assignment from Newsweek to document the war’s final days, was one of the last members of the press evacuated from the American embassy before Saigon fell; his iconic photographs graphically portray the confusion, fear, and desperation of that penultimate event. After Vietnam, Wheeler continued as a combat photographer covering conflicts in the Middle East for Newsweek and Time before moving to Santa Barbara, where he currently focuses on travel photography and has published several books, including The Most Beautiful Villages and Towns of California (2007, Thames & Hudson) with Santa Barbara Magazine contributing writer Joan Tapper. His work has been exhibited at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Harvard University, and UC Los Angeles’s Fowler Museum. Wheeler also leads photographic tours throughout Indochina. –L.D.P. NIK WHEELER nikwheeler.com.

s a genre, landscape art has had its ups and downs; it ranked well behind portrait and history painting until the 19th century. Such hierarchical distinctions seem irrelevant in an era of digitized images and conceptual art, yet even contemporary artists approach landscape with at least an inkling—conscious or unconscious—of its storied past. For married artists Stephanie Washburn and Chad Ress, who share studios in Ojai and Ventura, the history of landscape underlies their art making in unique and different ways. Washburn describes her body of work, The Yielding—combining drawing, photography, and video—as conflating the landscape genre with portrait, media spectacle, and architecture. Her digital print Fire at Sea is a reference to a painting by J.M.W. ABOVE: Washburn’s Fire At Sea 2, 2015, digital C-print, 32 x 55 in. Washburn is represented by Mark Moore Gallery, markmooregallery.com. LEFT: From Ress, boulders being placed in New Hogan Lake, Valley Springs, California.

Turner, the British artist credited with elevating the status of landscape painting. A graduate of Wesleyan University, Washburn is currently a lecturer at UC Santa Barbara, where she received her MFA. Her work is included in several public collections, including LACMA, The Frederick R. Weisman Foundation Collection, and MOCA San Diego. In his landscape photography series America Recovered, Ress documents projects funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), echoing the New Deal-era Farm Security Administration’s photography project that produced iconic images by noted photographers Walker Evans and Dorthea Lange (both of whom Ress credits with inspiring his interest in photography). Accepted at Photo Santa Fe and awarded distinction by The Forward Thinking Museum, America Recovered was also published in Time magazine’s Lightbox and Harper’s Magazine. –L.D.P.

FACT OR FICTION Released in January, She’s Gone (Heart Rock Press, $16), is page-turning fiction with roots in a local reality. Joye Emmens’s latest novel opens in 1969 during an uncontrolled oil spill from an offshore platform in Santa Barbara—based on an actual event that was the catalyst for the creation of Earth Day and the beginning of the environmental movement—that sets the stage for a coming-of-age novel with the backdrop of counterculture 1960s America that explores social and political issues still relevant today. –CHARLOTTE BRYANT

hen naval lieutenant RICHARD SANFORD returned home from the Vietnam War in 1968, immersion into agriculture meant starting over with a clean slate. “It was a curious situation,” he says. “We were rejected by the very culture that sent us to war, and my response was to delve into nature and the environment.” In 1971, buoyed by investors and business partner/botanist Michael Benedict—and driven by memories of a stellar Burgundy sipped a few years earlier— Sanford purchased land in the western stretches of the Santa Ynez Valley. It was “a spiritual experience,” he recalls. But it also marked a major step forward, it turns out, in Santa Barbara’s own foray into making world-class wine. When he founded Sanford & Benedict Vineyard, Sanford knew that the east-west traverse of the Santa Ynez Mountains was unique. The marine air it funneled inland might suit Burgundian grapes like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay well. But, limited topographical know-how aside, this was really an era of speculation and plenty of trial and error. Sanford bought his first Pinot Noir vines from what was Santa Barbara County’s first commercial vineyard—an experimental plot planted in 1964 in the Tepusquet region of the Santa Maria Valley by UC Davis viticulturists Uriel Nielsen and Bill DeMattei. The only other local wine endeavor was Santa Barbara Winery—the area’s first winery since Prohibition—which PIERRE LAFOND had founded in downtown Santa Barbara in 1962. “We were buying grapes from San Luis Obispo and making sherry and black muscat,” Lafond remembers. But it was when those Tepusquet vines began to mature in the early 1970s that Santa Barbara’s wine pioneers had the tools they needed to start experimenting—and to start making history. In 1970, Central Valley grower LOUIE LUCAS , along with Al Gagnon and Dale Hampton, established the 800-acre Tepusquet Vineyard. “We were the leading edge,” he admits, “and any time you go to an area that doesn’t have fruit, there’s risk.” Within five years, however, the caliber of his Chardonnay was luring big-name Northern California buyers like Beringer, ZD, and Robert Mondavi. In 1971, as Sanford’s project began, Lafond himself bought land nearby, and the first crop from his eponymous vineyard sprung in 1975. “A California ag counselor told me to plant grapes that were popular at the time,” he says, which led to some early mistakes. Warm-weather grapes planted in this cool region—Cabernet Sauvignon, most notably—were eventually pulled. The Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, though, flourished for decades to come. The next year, tire magnate LEONARD FIRESTONE and his son, BROOKS , established their ranch further inland in the Santa Ynez Valley, where a hotter clime allowed Bordeaux grapes like Cabernet and Merlot to shine. They were consulted by legendary winemaker André Tchelistcheff, and guided by thorough weather studies. “Regardless, you just don’t know until you try it,” says Brooks, “and we definitely took a chance.” Riesling would go on to become the Firestone label’s most awarded wine, though early Pinot plantings needed to be pulled some 15 years later. In 1973, farming brothers STEPHEN AND BOB MILLER established in Santa Maria what became one of the county’s most storied vineyards, Bien Nacido. “We were inspired by a Bank of America report that said you could never grow enough grapes in California to satisfy consumers,” Steve Miller recalls. To this day, the Bien Nacido name denotes wine grape pedigree. But even the Millers ended up pulling out grapes like Merlot. Santa Barbara’s first commercial Sauvignon Blanc vineyard was established in 1975, when UC Davis food sciences grad FRED BRANDER ventured inland, toward Los Olivos, where warm weather favored Bordeaux grapes. “There was no prototype back then, so we were trying out a lot of things,” he recalls, though his wines were already winning gold medals by 1978. The area’s first Syrah grapes went in the ground in 1977 at Zaca Mesa Winery along Foxen Canyon Road, when Cal State Fresno enology grad KEN BROWN moved to town. Syrah’s promise was clear to him. “But it was really the promise of Sanford’s young-vine Pinots in 1975 and 1976 that captivated me,” he remembers. By the late 1970s, after a decade of pioneering, the stage was finally set. The ’80s welcomed fresh vintner talent— Rick Longoria, Fess Parker, Daniel Gainey, Au Bon Climat’s Jim Clendenen, Qupé’s Bob Lindquist, The Ojai Vineyard’s Adam Tolmach, the Hitching Post’s Frank Ostini and Gray Hartley, and Foxen’s Dick Doré and Bill Wathen. The Santa Barbara County Vintners Association was founded in 1983. Today, most of the early players remain, the industry is booming, and—with dozens of grape varieties thriving— diversity is Santa Barbara’s calling card. Brooks Firestone calls it an “American success story.” And as a new wave of young entrepreneurs rolls in, the same attitude of innovation prevails. “We have all the raw materials,” says winemaker BRYAN BABCOCK , whose family bought land in the Sta. Rita Hills in 1978. “Now we must push the envelope, take everything to the next dimension, and stay open-minded to our ultimate potential.” –GABE SAGLIE

Gourmet in the Garden

When longtime friends Ariane Aumont (an Ojai-based private chef) and Taiana Geifer—a high-end fashion designer and event producer—finally found themselves living in the same town after Geifer settled on the West Coast after seven years of living between Santa Barbara and New York, their innate interests brought them together. The result: Le Picnic—a “boutique garden party meets Mediterranean cocktail hour meets elegant picnic,” says Geifer. During the past few years, as Aumont’s clientele was expanding, “she started getting larger jobs and it became clear she needed a partner,” says Geifer. “After our first job together, we knew we would be an excellent team.” Now, the duo’s boutique catering company is known for custom picnic baskets stuffed with delicacies such as smoked zucchini dip with pomegranate molasses and mint, pickled vegetables, manchego with apple-sage membrillo, black mission fig and olive tapenade, and lavash and za’tar flat bread as well as their private custom-curated alfresco affairs and public events such as a demonstration of pairing locally grown herbs in your home-cooked meals. –GINA Z.

BURST OF THE SEA Caviar—the salt-cured roe (fish eggs) of sturgeon—has been consumed as a delicacy for more than 700 years. It’s delectable on its own, atop briny oysters or smoked salmon, or served on blinis with a dollop of crème fraîche. One company known for its sophisticated selection of caviars and smoked salmon is Kolikof, founded in 2012 by Jim Miller. “My mother’s family, the Kolikof family, is of Russian descent and lived in the Caspian Sea city of Baku, considered by historians and gourmands as the center of the ancient caviar world,” he says. “Today, we continue the tradition of my ancestors by traveling the world to source the finest and best-tasting sustainable caviars and smoked salmons.” Kolikof’s most popular caviar is the belugalike Imperial Kaluga (from $75/30 grams, pictured)—a sustainable hybrid with large, glossy light golden green to dark gray grains that have nutty, buttery, and salty flavors—sought after by chefs all over the world, including Nobu Matsuhisa, though the four other varieties are enjoyed by discerning connoisseurs as well. According to Miller, caviar is “best served thoroughly chilled on a mother of pearl spoon” to avoid tainting the exquisite taste. For your next surf-themed party, consider Kolikof’s caviar in the surf bar—four types of caviar are laid upon an ornately designed surfboard along with vintage champagne bottles while professionals are on hand to answer any questions about the delicacy. –G.Z.T.

While other American cities are famous music centers and have been duly noted and saluted as such—from Los Angeles and New York City to New Orleans, Nashville, and Memphis as well as trendier hot spots (i.e. the indie-landia of Portland and Seattle)—Santa Barbara, the scenic wonderland between L.A. and San Francisco, has carved out its own impressive place in the world of global musical culture, if in syncopated and singular ways.

A

part from the established musical figures spotlighted here, musical angles abound in this blessed city. We’ve had close, nearly neighborly encounters with genuine pop royalty: For years, Santa Barbara County was a destination landing zone for Michael Jackson at his controversial Neverland Ranch as well as a launching pad for the young aspiring Goletabred singer Katy Hudson—better known to the world as Katy Perry. The New Noise Music Festival and Conference, a seaside up-and-comer event in the SXSW mold, has so far set up its tent for five years running, and we have, in the Santa Barbara-seeded and now globe-trotting Gardens & Villa, a strong contender in the indie rock landscape. In other cultural corners, Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits fame has been a longtime Montecitan, and the S.B.-born, 1990s hit-maker band Dishwalla’s “Counting Blue Cars” (with its hook “Tell me all your thoughts on God/I’d really like to meet her”) still radiates the airwaves. Here, we take a selective, guided tour through the map and history of music notables who have called Santa Barbara home. From the “remember when” file, some recall seeing the shaggily eloquent guitar-wielding surfer dude/UC Santa Barbara student making the rounds of local venues, including SOhO and the intimate but ever-hip restaurant Roy, in the late ’90s, cooking up an enticing admix of folk, rap lite, Hendrix-y ripples, and sandy, bubbly toes-iness. Before very long, the former film student Jack Johnson ruled his own corner of the music world in his benevolent way as a new kind of pop star, riding a wave of unpretentious and easy-does-it spirit of his own devising. Now, when the Hawaii-born (and still partly based) worldtouring star—with nine megaseller albums to his name—

plays in his So-Cal hometown, he settles in for a doubleheader of sold-out nights at the Santa Barbara Bowl. Restaurateur Roy Gandy, of Roy fame, can usually be seen milling about the throngs. Recalling his fast, uncalculated rise to the top, Johnson says, with typical understatement, “I was doing surf films, so I had a pretty good job already. I wasn’t really looking for something new, but it just sort of happened. I rolled with it.” Surfing and music—and the sense of rolling with things as they come—are joined at the center of Johnson’s being. “Riding waves—it’s a rhythmic thing,” he comments. “If the wave would stay still, you’d get all your speed from the rhythm of going up and down. You go up and gravity pulls you down, and you use the force of the bottom turn to go back up. Since the wave is moving constantly, you have to learn to roll with it. Songwriting is the same way. If you just go with the constant rhythm of lyrics, you just have the same formula every time. It seems like if you let yourself go and try different things and roll with your mind as it goes, it helps.” There may be no official Santa Barbara song to speak of, no local equivalent of Randy Newman’s “I Love L.A.” or Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York,” but one reasonable candidate might be the wistful folk-rock “Walk on the Ocean,” one of the greatest hits by the best-known band outta’ Santa Barbara, Toad the Wet Sprocket. Named after a fictional band from Monty Python’s Flying Circus, this alt-rock band of local boys—lead singer Glen Phillips, Todd Nichols, Dean Dinning, and Randy Guss— who graduated from San Marcos High School in the late ’80s and played beloved joints like Pat’s Grass Shack in Goleta before being signed by Columbia Records in the early ’90s, scored biggest with the pop tart “All I Want,”

but “Walk on the Ocean” may be the best, most timeless and most 805-ish classic in the songbook. After breaking up in 1998 and then making up in recent years (including birthing their eighth album New Constellation), Toad’s saga continues into the sprocketed future. David Crosby—the hirsute “C” of CSN (with Stephen Stills and Graham Nash) and CPR (with Jeff Pevar and James Raymond, his son) known for solo efforts, duets with his pal Nash, and general folk-rock legendry—may be considered Santa Barbara’s rock prodigal son of sorts. Crosby has hailed from Santa Ynez for several years now, after a long and winding spell away from the county. “I was raised there and I love it,” he once said just before moving back to the area. “I know every street, every tree, and every beach. It’s my stomping grounds.” He grew up in the 805, got kicked out of schools, and played at the old Noctambulist folk club (near the Lobero Theatre), where he says, “I washed dishes for which they would let me get up and sing with a guy named Tony Townsend who played there. He was a guitar player, singer-

folkie guy. He would let me sing harmony with him. That was my initial thing.” Landing in Los Angeles, he played with The Byrds and helped forge a new folk-rock sound. He is known for coming to the aid of numerous causes and refusing to simply rest on laurels up through his first new album of originals in 20 years, Croz, in 2014 at age 72—unveiled, incidentally, at the Lobero, with the ancestral memory of the Noctambulist lurking in the wings. Famed Memphis-born saxman Charles Lloyd has been the jazz world’s token local celebrity for 25-plus years, and on an almost annual basis, appears at the Lobero Theatre, an easy 15-minute drive from his house (or less, the way he drives). But Lloyd—whose style draws on influences of John Coltrane, pop music, and a range of worldly sounds—took a circuitous route to his idyllic hilltop property, not far from the Vedanta Temple. It was the temple, in fact, which partly drew the spiritually attuned musician down the coast from Big Sur. He had repaired and retreated there during the ’70s after ascending to uncommonly great heights (for a jazz group) with his legendary 1960s quartet—featuring young

piano wizard Keith Jarrett—and then shocked everyone by jumping off the fame/public limelight bus in 1970. Now 77—and toasted around the world as part of a fading generation of a jazz golden era—Lloyd is enjoying status as a jazz senior statesman with an ever-youthful spirit and a road home to Santa Barbara’s trails, pools, and easy proximity to coveted eatery La Super-Rica. Hanging out and nursing a beer between acts in one of the city’s most prized panoramic vista points—the Scranton Overlook atop of the Santa Barbara Bowl—could be considered a toasting gesture to the man behind the unfolding vision. That would be former bowl executive director Sam Scranton, the musician-manager/venue-maker who spearheaded the drive to make the bowl—originally a WPA project with a long, uneven history as a concert venue—into one of America’s greatest outdoor music “rooms,” not to mention one of Santa Barbara’s cultural treasures, a thing of pride and joy (yes, Stevie Ray Vaughan played there). Others were involved, of course, including an active fund-raising board and the all-important booking efforts and clout of Santa Barbaran Moss Jacobs, now a promoter powerhouse with the mighty Nederlander Concerts. Acts including Radiohead, The Eagles, Sting, The Arcade Fire, Davie Bowie,

archetype-maker for the folk-rock singer-songwriter cosmos, creator of the haunting ditty “These Days” (he wrote his oft-covered masterpiece at age 16), “Running on Empty,” saying a prayer for the pretender, avid activism through music and the power of fame, and—for proud, trivia-keeping Santa Barbarans at least—Hollister Ranch. (Browne bought a healthy piece of the big, relatively unspoiled acreage north of Santa Barbara back in the 1970s.) Browne has frequented the bowl since it was the County Bowl, still slips into the Lobero—announced and otherwise—and has lent energies to countless benefits here, including last October’s Sanctuary Centers benefit at the Arlington, when the part-time Santa Barbaran surfed through a 50-year songbook spanning his classics to tunes from his latest album, Standing in the Breach. One of Santa Barbara County’s most illustrious, culture-defining, and also, by nature, half-hidden legends in the world of song is Bernie Taupin. He is not known for his public appearances or performance powers but more so as Elton John’s right-hand lyricist for four decades, penner of countless words on the lips and minds of multitudes. Drawn to the Santa Ynez Valley by his love of spaces and horses (as have past valley residents Cream drummer Ginger Baker and The Tonight Show band domo Doc Severinsen), Taupin—an American West aficionado who once copped the nickname the “Brown Dirt Cowboy”—lived out his dream of owning and running a ranch, the Roundup Valley Ranch (bought in 1992, put up for sale in 2014). Meanwhile, he continued working with Sir Elton John, both long-distance and in real time in the Roundup’s recording studio and elsewhere, right up through the latest, critically kudo-ed John-Taupin song set, The Diving Board. In his little corner of the valley, Taupin has been our premiere local/global lyricsmithing legend. The abiding “dude” Jeff Bridges has successfully added musician and lovably gruff-toned singer to his artistic life plan. He may have partly tapped into that certain musical something in the water here. As an actor, Bridges—whose long flirtation with Oscar nominations came to award night fruition with his Oscar for his role as a washed-up and then renewed musician in Crazy Heart (2009)—cites the film as a catalyst to spur him on to pursue his teenage dream of becoming a recording, touring musician. “I probably would still be doing my music without that [film],” he says, “but that was really a wonderful shot in the arm. It really got the music thing going for me.” As for relocating to Santa Barbara from Los Angeles, he has said, “We got shook out with that earthquake, the Northridge quake. We landed very well up here. It’s just a wonderful community to be a part of. So great.” n

Jeff Bridges has successfully added touring/recording musician and lovably gruff-toned singer to his artistic life plan. He may have partly tapped into that certain musical something in the water here. and Stevie Wonder that normally fill much larger venues have heeded the special call to this jewel of a spot. Kenny Loggins—the veteran genre-switchup gymnast in the folk-rock, soft-rock, blue-eyed soul, and other hyphenate idioms—has been a mainstay of the Santa Barbarameets-the world music population for decades. Not one to dodge the spotlight or the street corner, he shows up all about town, from a Loggins and Messina reunion tour gig at the bowl to casual end-of-the-year shows at SOhO to the televised Christmastime fund-raiser marathons for The Unity Shoppe. He and pal Michael McDonald (also an on-and-off-again Santa Barbaran over the years) cowrote “What a Fool Believes” and “This Is It,” two of the deeper cuts in the long Loggins hit jukebox, which also features the likes of “Danny’s Song,” “Celebrate Me Home,” “Footloose,” and “Whenever I Call You Friend.” By now, Loggins could be drifting into the sunset, sustained by his bevy of hits, but the creative muse keeps tugging. When he played at the Chumash Casino & Resort not long ago, he “opened” for himself with his new country trio Blue Sky Riders. Chalk it up to another musical chapter in the Loggins saga.

THE CONCURRENCIES OF SURFING AND SKATEBOARDING

began when some bored Southern California surfer grumbling about flat seas jerry-rigged a surfboard simulator from a roller skate and a board. Though evidence of such tinkering dates to the 1940s, it’s safe to say that countless men now well into their 60s resolutely believe that they single-handedly invented the skateboard in the 1950s. What we do know is that surfing and skateboarding went hand in hand, especially in beach towns like Santa Barbara, where smooth downtown sidewalks lead to warmish waves at Leadbetter Point. Skateboards were still rudimentary deathtraps when their spiritually refined birth mother— the surfboard—guided Southern California’s early surfers to spots north of famed Malibu. Renny Yater was among them, and in 1959, he opened Yater Surfboards. Since then, he’s built a reputation as a master surfboard shaper, and, now in his 80s, Yater still puts in workweeks at his shop off Milpas Street, alongside his son, Lauran. Skateboarding didn’t come into its own until the early 1970s with the arrival of the fast and grippy urethane wheel. Shortly thereafter, skate parks cropped up across the United States— including Santa Barbara’s Golf N’ Fun near La Cumbre Plaza and Sparks in Goleta—and skateboarding expanded from sidewalk soul surfers to bowl riders, downhill daredevils, and vast numbers of young women. Riding the wave in 1976, George Powell founded Powell Corporation on the industrial east side and introduced the Quicksilver slalom board with Sims Skateboards founder Tom Sims. Their brief partnership put Powell on the map, and in 1978, he teamed up with pro skater Stacy Peralta. As the Powell•Peralta Bones Brigade skate team dominated the 1980s, surfboard shaper Al Merrick became one of the industry’s dominant figures, having built on accolades earned while shaping for 1977 world champ Shaun Tomson (a South African now living in Montecito). Today, Merrick’s Channel Island Surfboards, headquartered in Carpinteria, is the planet’s biggest manufacturer under a single brand and the board sponsor for giants Tom Curren, Santa Barbaran Bobby Martinez, and Ventura’s Dane Reynolds, among others). At the same time, surfboard innovations prompted more aggressive wave riding. During that heyday, skaters were generally dirtier and more anti-authority than their wetsuit-clad counterparts, but the cultures did continue to share the common goal of eating, breathing, and sleeping sideways through life—literally and figuratively. Unfortunately, the number of female practitioners had dropped dramatically since the love fest of the previous decade. These days, it’s tough to tally just how many trends have come full circle within the surf and skate cultures. In terms of equipment, check the lineup during any good weekend at Rincon and you’ll find all sorts of wave-sliding crafts—from stubby soft-top twin fins to 11-foot pintails and everything in between (along with surf mats, body boards, stand-up paddle boards, and hand planes for bodysurfing). Meanwhile, students skate around Isla Vista on throwback banana boards, street urchins ride precisely tuned maple decks and titanium trucks, and fanatics of downhilling exceed 50 miles per hour on proprietary urethane. In both cultures, a do-it-yourself ethos is also hot once again, with feral skateboarders building renegade spots with salvaged bags of cement as surfers stock their biodiesel rigs—Ojai’s Malloy brothers come to mind—with homemade sunblock for sojourns to uncrowded waves. The most conspicuous return to ancestral form, though, is that on any given wave, or at any given skate park, you can find the fairer sex thriving. “It’s really cool to see women and young girls pushing the limits in both skating and surfing,” says Santa Barbara’s Lakey Peterson, 20, who grew up skating and now surfs at the highest professional level. “It’s all going in such a good direction.” n

Before the urethane-wheel revolution of the early 1970s, TOM SIMS and Chuck Barfoot—New Jersey natives renting an adobe hut on Mountain Drive—built boards from old waterskis, clay rollerskate wheels, and a grippy topcoat of resin laced with Hammonds Beach sand. Sims foresaw the coming wave, launching Sims Skateboards with a team of the region’s best guys and girls who tested prototype equipment in dry reservoirs at an abandoned Montecito estate. Innovations in board design are credited to Barfoot as the company grew into one of the era’s biggest. Sims passed away in Santa Barbara in 2012. Barfoot, based in La Conchita, builds skateboards and snowboards.

Santa Barbara-based artist and activist PEGGY OKI (pictured below)—then a Santa Monica surfer girl skating with the now-legendary Z-Boys team—claimed the tall trophy at the inaugural Santa Barbara City Championships on May 18, 1975. Coincidentally, a crowd favorite at that contest was a 10-year-old local named TOMMY CURREN (pictured top left), who has since become one of surfing’s most revered and influential living legends. (And just five years ago, Curren’s daughter, Lee-Ann, was a shortlist contender for the women’s world title.)

Also pictured: SBS team riders and other finalists at the 1977 Semana Nautica summer sports festival. Not pictured: Newly appointed team rider Kim Mearig, who soon graduated to surfing and, in 1983, won the women’s world title.

In September 1978, George Powell (above right)—a Stanford-trained engineer whose masters project was a breakaway surfboard fin—joined forces with world-champ skater Stacy Peralta (above left). In the ’80s, their small company, POWELL•PERALTA SKATEBOARDS, expanded into one of the industry’s most influential, manufacturing pro decks and Bones wheels right here in Santa Barbara, where the factory still hums today. Among other innovators, Powell•Peralta’s Bones Brigade skate team hatched a fledgling Tony Hawk, now the world’s most recognizable skater. After a rough patch in the 1990s, Powell•Peralta reemerged with more iconic skateboard art from Santa Barbara-native Vernon Courtlandt Johnson and a feature-length 2012 documentary directed by Peralta, entitled Bones Brigade: An Autobiography.

Scott Power hits the lip of the pool behind the WILDERNESS SURFBOARDS shop, circa 2001. Digging with shovels and picks (and without a building permit), a handful of skateboarders created a concrete playground at a lower east side hideaway haunted by the creative genius of wave-rider George Greenough (pictured above right). A Montecito-born eccentric now living in Australia, Greenough handcrafted waterproof camera housings, pioneered surfboard and fin design, and cofounded Wilderness Surfboards with Michael Cundith in 1966. Bob Duncan came aboard in 1970 and still builds Wilderness boards at a new location. In 2008, the shop and pool were buried by the widening of Highway 101.

Cofounder of Santa Barbara Montessori School, JIM FITZPATRICK built his first skateboard in 1957 and grew up surfing Topanga Beach, mentored by the legendary Miki Dora and Surf Guide magazine editor Bill Cleary. Fitzpatrick worked in promotions at Powell•Peralta and helped launch the International Association of Skateboard Companies, which set up a grassroots campaign to build public skate parks. In 1997, armed with thousands of supportive letters, he lobbied state legislators. “It was classic Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” Fitzpatrick remembers. Shortly thereafter, lawmakers passed a bill that opened the floodgates for skate park construction, including Santa Barbara’s Skaters Point.

While CONNER COFFIN (pictured middle left), 21, expresses the Curren-esque style of the classically trained, kid brother PARKER COFFIN (pictured far left), 19, displays the precise artistry of a master technician. Both are described as humble and great fans of good food, which they actively seek out while lapping the planet on surf trips. Check out their Young Wise Tails blog. The growing crowd surrounding Skater’s Point didn’t know it at the time, but Saturday, September 10, 2005, marked a cool moment in Santa Barbara’s long and deeply woven history of surfing and skateboarding. That’s when local LAKEY PETERSON, 10 at the time, took first place in the 10 to 15-year-old girls division at the city’s annual skate contest. She did it again in 2006. These days, the 20-year-old Peterson (pictured near left)—who rode waves when she was 5 and picked up skateboarding at 8—is touring with the best competitive surfers on the planet. Last year, she finished the season ranked sixth in the world.

In their 1963 Surfing Guide to Southern California, coauthors Bill Cleary and David Stern wrote that “the 15 miles of coastline between Point Conception and Gaviota is...closed to the public...and the 24-hour guard at the entrance gate is deputized to arrest trespassers. We have listed the surfing spots anyway, in the event the current situation should change.” Half a century later, the “situation” remains essentially unchanged.

BEAUTIFUL MINDS Santa Barbara is where fantasies come to life and creative icons come to live

Driving up from the south, about 10 miles out, you pass through a wild, empty stretch with few signs of civilization other than the ribbon of highway that divides the scruffy sagebrush cliffs from the Pacific Ocean. When you round the cape at Rincon Point, the vegetation suddenly pops out— a brighter shade of green and lusciously tropical, like the work of an exuberant gardener. Then you see it: the white, low-slung city and its glittering harbor sheltered between mountains and sea. Santa Barbara feels like an island. It’s where people come to heal, to try on new lives, to make up their own rules of the game. It’s where fantasies come to life—often with unexpected consequences. Consider the story of MARTHA GRAHAM. Her father was a third-generation doctor from Pittsburgh, her mother traced her lineage straight back to the Mayflower, and her sister inherited a lung condition. The family came to Santa Barbara in 1908 in search of a cure from the winters of eastern privilege. In their case, the cure took the form of a Montecito olive ranch (“Martha Graham,” December/January 2008). One day, a traveling dancer dressed as a Hindu goddess appeared in Santa Barbara and lit a fire under young Martha’s imagination. The rest is, well, the history of a long and graceful conquest of the capitals of the dance world. And then there’s MADAME GANNA WALSKA (“A Life Less Ordinary,” February/March 2005), a Polish-born opera singer whose questionable talents as a chanteuse were no match for her genius in securing auspicious marriages. She tallied six husbands who had the unfortunate habit of expiring during their unions or after the divorce. When she finally had enough of Paris and New York, she decamped to Santa Barbara, where the fantasy took the form of Lotusland—an extraordinary 37-acre botanical garden of rare and exquisite beauty. Santa Barbara is where East moves West and then shoots for the moon. But it doesn’t always go according to plan. EDIE SEDGWICK’s grandfather—a New York patrician from his top hat down to the bottom of his bags of money—also brought his family over in search of a salt-air cure (“Almost Famous,” October/November 2006). His son, Duke, indulged his dreams without limits, careening through Santa Barbara’s artistic and social elites at his sprawling ranch and scattering broken hearts around the hillsides. The piper called for Edie, a wild, beautiful, and perfectly insane “It Girl” who died of drug-related causes at the age of 28 and is remembered today for her 15 minutes of fame in Andy Warhol’s Factory during the 1960s. When PBS came up with the idea for the first reality show in 1971, they naturally looked to Santa Barbara. Where else would you find a “normal” family willing to do something so out of the ordinary? The producers of An American Family meant to document a year in life of the standard-issue

American Dream, so they chose BILL AND PAT LOUD, who lived with their five children and assorted pets in a ranch-style home on the Riviera (“Cinema Verité,” August/September 2010). During the course of the filming, the oldest son came out as gay—a television first—and Bill and Pat decided to get divorced. That’s the thing about living the dream: You can’t always predict how it’ll turn out. In a place where you get to make up the rules, not surprisingly, people sometimes decide they don’t need to follow any rules at all. During the PROHIBITION era, the beaches of Santa Barbara were like Normandy for bootleggers—except that our rumrunners were greeted with warm embraces and empty glasses (“Hooch Heyday,” December/January 2007). Every few years, a fresh tale of scandal blows through one part of town or another, usually on the fine line that separates Martha Graham high society from high crimes and misdemeanors. Oftentimes, Santa Barbara is where the square peg at last finds a comfortable home. In the case of BUCKMINSTER FULLER, that would undoubtedly be a multidimensional home (“A Beautiful Mind,” October/November 2008). The scion of a family of Boston transcendentalists and inventor of geodesic domes, Fuller struggled in geometry class as a 12-yearold, got expelled from Harvard twice, experienced a life-transforming encounter with a great white spirit over Lake Michigan (she instructed him to seek out the universal laws of nature for the benefit of all humankind), and coined the phrase “Spaceship Earth.” Bucky’s own spaceship—for he was a philosopher of the peripatetic kind—increasingly touched down in Santa Barbara for lectures, seminars, and meetings with some of the greatest minds at UCSB. In short, he was a man made to order for spaceship Santa Barbara—the kind of man who would break the mold, if only he could find it. With the benefit of hindsight, Fuller’s mad visions—he championed renewable energy and sustainable environmental practices—make many contemporaries look like the crazy ones. AND THAT’S ANOTHER REASON WHY THE NATION NEEDS SANTA BARBARA. AMERICANS ARE IN THE UNFORTUNATE HABIT OF MEASURING THE VALUE OF EVERYTHING IN TERMS OF EITHER FAST MONEY OR EVEN FASTER PLEASURE. WE’RE HERE TO SHOW THAT THERE IS ANOTHER WAY. SANTA BARBARA IS A LABORATORY FOR NEW WAYS OF LIVING.

Hippies in other towns loitered in city parks and put flowers in their hair. Our bohemians moved up to MOUNTAIN DRIVE 169

SUMMER15.icons.indd 169

and invented the hot tub (“Mountain Drive,” June/July 2007). They also concocted distinctive bacchanalian rituals that, in Rock Hudson’s 1966 movie Seconds, gave the movie-going public a startling glimpse of life outside the white picket fence. Their ceremonies eventually morphed into the Renaissance Faires that now appear across the nation. SANTA BARBARA IS A PLACE THAT HONORS TRADITIONS BUT ALSO INVENTS THEM. To celebrate our Hispanic heritage

and community that dates back to the late 1700s, the city turns out for OLD SPANISH DAYS FIESTA (“Viva La!,” Summer 2014) that features an elaborate equestrian parade that has few equals. To welcome the SUMMER SOLSTICE (“Seeds of Love,” Summer 1999), we turn out again and again for a colorful homegrown parade of exuberant paganism. That same easygoing island attitude makes Santa Barbara a natural habitat for artists, architects, writers, and scientists. It seems inevitable that the pioneering architect Frank Lloyd Wright should have built a fine, wooden house here. It seems equally appropriate that this same house should now be home to the writer T.C. BOYLE (“Creative Genius,” February/March 2009). The list of celebrated inhabitants could go on: Jeff Bridges, Kevin Costner, Ellen DeGeneres, Fannie Flagg, Sue Grafton, Pico Iyer, Rob Lowe, SUZY PARKER, Dennis Miller, Ronald Regan, Carol Burnett, Bob Zemeckis, Ivan Reitman, Katy Perry, OPRAH WINFREY, Dick Wolf, and others. Santa Barbara attracts creative artists the way French cafes used to attract existential philosophers. MAYBE ONE OF THE NICER THINGS ABOUT LIVING IN THIS SLIGHTLY UNMOORED CITY IS THAT WHILE THE BIG RULES

Stringent ordinances have preserved the town’s Spanish Mediterranean design as well as many architectural landmarks—from the Old Mission Santa Barbara to 19th-century adobes and Mission revival manses. In recent years, Spanish colonial revival masterpieces of GEORGE WASHINGTON SMITH, nature-inspired constructions of LUTAH MARIA RIGGS, and inventive cottages of the Moody sisters have given way to the modernist masterpieces of Barry Berkus and Barton Meyers as well as the quirky artisanship of Jeff Shelton. Of course, with so many important estates in our midst, some number of squabbling heirs and duelling beneficiaries are bound to appear. What, for instance, will become of Bellosguardo, the unbelievably scenic hillside estate of the late HUGUETTE CLARK, heiress of a 19th-century copper-robber-baron (“The House on the Hill,” August/ September 2009), overlooking East Beach? Whether or not the estate ends up as a home for the arts, as Clark appears to have intended, hinges on the outcome of a story that continued on page 175

BEAUTIFUL MINDS continued from page 170 involves a confederation of local dignitaries, relatives who never knew her, a nurse who cared for her all too well, and inevitably, the IRS. But Santa Barbara is more than a playground for elites of money and culture, as some critics may say. If there is a sensibility that brings almost everyone together here, it’s one that puts most of its eggs in the basket of “now.” Santa Barbarans celebrate the present. We shop at the farmers market, savor the steady stream of friendly greetings, meet up later for afternoons on the beach with the dolphins and pelicans, and wait for that instant when the sky erupts in a blaze of orange and pink and the sun dips toward the horizon. Santa Barbara is a place where moments matter, and people care enough about one another to make them count. On that drive up the coast, as you pass Rincon and the foliage hits you like a tropical dream, you can see why early pioneers of the movie business such as CHARLIE CHAPLIN imagined that Santa Barbara would one day become the film capital of the world. Fortunately for us, we didn’t become Tinseltown (“Almost Hollywood,” June/July 2006). As you wind past the hedges that shield celebrity estates, you can see that we are something so much better. This is where Hollywood goes to heaven. And heaven always turns out to be something very different—brighter, darker, funnier, and altogether more human—than anything we could have ever expected. n
