A Message From The President


anta Barbara is a place we call home full of beauty created by citizens, architects, planners, landscape architects and business owners. Over the generations we have been dedicated to creating, preserving and enriching this wonderful environment to ensure a truly Timeless Santa Barbara. I am pleased to share with you several of Santa Barbara Beautiful’s projects we worked on this year. Engaging future artists and botanists, especially the young ones has continued to be an ongoing theme. Kate Kurlas This year we enjoyed another successful collaboration with local nonprofit Youth Interactive with an original artwork for the I Madonnari Chalk Festival in front of the steps of Mission Santa Barbara. Please take a moment to see the commissioned recreation of this work in the lobby this evening. Our springtime Arbor Day program continued to grow as we engaged over seven local schools this past year, celebrating the importance of trees, along with the city of Santa Barbara Parks Department. In partnership with the Arbor Day program, our botanical book donations to local school libraries continued to delight young students, as well as their teachers, administrators and parents. This year also saw the dedication of the beautiful Cota Sycamore near the Santa Barbara Mission to former Award’s Master of Ceremonies and “Mr. California,” the late Huell Howser. Our organization continues to be committed to our garden legacy. Last year we funded the planting of street trees and were proud to once again be a key sponsor for the Santa Barbara Public Gardens Partnership. We also actively reached out with our ongoing community grants program to organizations working to celebrate our architectural heritage. We were proud to help support the Lutah Maria Riggs documentary, shown at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, and have committed support for a collaboration between the Santa Barbara Historical Museum, The Art Design and Architecture Museum

at UCSB for an important upcoming exhibition on Lutah Maria Riggs’ architectural work. Santa Barbara Beautiful continues to grow and develop working relationships with phenomenal organizations such as the Arts Commission of Santa Barbara County, the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, Lotusland, the Architectural Foundation, the Lutah Maria Riggs Society, Downtown Santa Barbara, the City Parks and Recreation Department, and many local schools. I am proud of our Board of Directors as their energy, commitment, and dedication are just some reasons why Santa Barbara Beautiful is forty-nine years strong. A large “Thank You!” goes to the Awards Committee who has made this evening so special: Co-Chairs Jeanette Casillas and Ricardo Castellanos and the hardworking committee including Jacqueline Dyson, Robert F. Adams, Lori Kari, Suzanne Fairly-Green, Deborah Schwartz, Kerry Methner, Mark Whitehurst, Leslee Sipress, Duke McPherson, as well as Dana Morrow at Road Show Media. I also want to thank the many hours provided by our amazing Property Award Judges who included community leaders, art historians, real estate professionals, architects, landscape architects, and planners, as well as our talented group of voice-over artists. And, finally, congratulations to all of our Award Winners. You have made a difference in this beautiful place we call home. We also want to thank our incredibly generous sponsorship partners, without you this evening would be impossible to put on. Thank you for your continued support of Santa Barbara Beautiful.

President’s Award

Alma del Pueblo et back from Santa Barbara’s wide, palmshaded streets, Alma del Pueblo represents a modern take on classic Spanish-Colonial architecture, all the way from its courtyard fountain to its redtiled rooftop. With a mix of open international, one- and twobedroom floorplans, each of Alma del Pueblo’s thirtyseven residences is beautifully appointed with the most elegantly designed and energy efficient amenities and finishes. Years in the making and planning, Alma del Pueblo brings an elegant statement to the heart of the Arts District in Santa Barbara. Margaret L. Cafarelli, along with the design, development, and construction teams, have brought a phenomenal project to fruition for the benefit of residents and visitors. Incorporating a public market, public art, drought tolerant landscaping, and urban housing, the project weaves among the paseos that wind around the historic Arlington Theatre, providing an environment that adds immeasurably to the vitality of the urban fabric. A spectacular addition to the Arts District, Alma del Pueblo is a superlative exercise in place-making. Today, we honor Margaret L. Cafarelli and acknowledge her dedication and long-range vision with the 2014 Santa Barbara Beautiful President's Award.

The Santa Barbara Botanic Garden Native Choice Award

for Leadership in the use of California Native Plants

Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation his year the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden is pleased to establish the Native Choice Award to recognize leadership by an individual or organization in the use of California native plants in a designed landscape. As the oldest botanic garden in the United States dedicated solely to the display and conservation of native flora, the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden is a passionate advocate for the importance of using California’s native plants in all landscape styles and settings. It gives us great pleasure to partner with Santa Barbara Beautiful to create an opportunity to recognize exemplary native landscapes within our community. California native plants certainly add beauty to our landscapes. Imagine our rolling hills without their iconic oaks and colorful wildflowers, or our mountain’s rocky foothills without their characteristic swathes of manzanita and ceanothus. Just as our rich cultural heritage and distinctive architecture define the look and feel of Santa Barbara, so do the native plants that have always called our wildlands home. In addition to their beauty, natives are naturally suited to our climate and tolerate a range of weather conditions—including extreme drought. They provide critical habitat for the birds, pollinators and other wildlife to thrive along the central coast. Last, but not least, native plants are locally adapted and require hardly any environmentally damaging fertilizers and pesticides. It is with great pleasure that, tonight, the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden honors another vital nonprofit in our community for its vision and environmental leadership for choosing natives in its spectacularly designed landscapes. We extend heartfelt congratulations to the Santa Barbara County Bowl and its Board of Directors as our inaugural Native Choice Award winner. The Bowl’s multi-phased landscape design renovation includes three sites that wholeheartedly reflect the spirit of the Native Choice Award: the Overlook, the Glen, and the landscaping around the new Box Office. According to

Photos by Lucia Ferreira-Lulight


the designer Susan Van Atta, the Bowl’s rustic character and beautiful setting inspired her scented native plantings, bioswales, subtle lighting, and stone pathways. Together these elements establish a sense of tranquility and natural shelter. They reflect the site’s natural topography and, at the same time create a unique and unforgettable place what we all can all take pride in.

Business in Art Award

(City of Santa Barbara Arts Advisory Committee)

Laura Knight, Pascucci Restaurant


HE CITY ARTS ADVISORY AND VISUAL ARTS IN PUBLIC PLACES COMMITTEES, and The Santa Barbara County Arts Commission are delighted to present the 2014 Business In Art Award to Laura Knight, Owner and Founder of Pascucci Restaurant. Through her restaurant Laura has provided generous sponsorships and financial support to numerous nonprofit organizations in Santa Barbara. Of greatest significance is the annual “Celebrity Solstice Night” fundraiser, which in its 13-year history has raised over $125,000 to support Santa Barbara’s Summer Solstice parade. The signature event that engages community leaders and celebrities to serve as wait staff and bartenders has generated great community support and increased the focus on funding needs for the annual parade which has inspired other business contributions. Other organizations Laura Knight that have benefitted from Pascucci's support through Laura’s generosity over the years are the Santa Barbara Architectural Foundation, the Fund for Santa Barbara, Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, Center Stage Theater, Environmental Defense Center, Transition House, Unity Shoppe, the Santa

Barbara Addy awards, and numerous area schools. Laura is active in the community and currently serves on the Boards of Downtown Santa Barbara, Summer Solstice Celebration, and The Greater Santa Barbara Lodging and Restaurant Association. Her volunteer contributions include service on the City of Santa Barbara Community Development & Human Services Committee for over eight years. Through generosity of spirit, innovative thinking, and commitment to the Arts, Laura Knight, as owner of Pascucci Restaurant has created a stronger, more vibrant and dynamic arts environment ---enriching, engaging, and positively impacting the greater Santa Barbara community. The Business in Art Award was established by the City Arts Advisory Committee in 2005. This award is given to an individual or entity that conducts business in the Santa Barbara area. It may include being a retail or commercial establishment, a sole practitioner, a partnership or a professional corporation: one that exhibits outstanding support of arts activity in our community in ways that create a stronger, more vibrant arts environment in Santa Barbara and enriches the lives of both residents and visitors. Local artist Sue Van Horsen created the unique award that will be presented to Pascucci Restaurant owner Laura Knight.

Sue Van Horsen Artist Statement: I have always been different. Growing up in a blue-collar suburb of Los Angeles, I was well aware that I wasn’t like the other little girls in my school. I would visit their homes and as my eyes glazed over, would wonder at their dainty collections of seashells, Barbie dolls, Breyer horses and other bric-a-brac. I too had collections: rusty doorplates, old machine parts and random rocks, which I would proudly display in my room. Having grown up near the oil derricks of Long Beach, I was awed by the gritty beauty of those bobbing bird-like contraptions. On car trips around town, I would take imaginary pictures of the industrial world that surrounded me. I was spellbound, snapping away with my invisible camera, as the mundane and cresote soaked landscape whizzed by. In the present, I create many of my pieces through the use of digital technology, using elements from vintage photos, children’s scribbling, and scanned icons of the modern world, coupled with the rusty remnants and objects of industry. Sue Van Horsen

Commitment To The Environment Commemorative Tree Program The commemorative tree program has long been a favorite for families, friends, pet lovers and organizations. These dedication markers are installed at the base of city street trees. Proceeds from the plaques help fund the purchase of new street trees in collaboration with the City Parks & Recreation Department.

Tree City USA Since 1980, the City of Santa Barbara has earned recognition as a “Tree City USA” from the National Arbor Day Foundation for 34 consecutive years. The City of Santa Barbara honors SBB for its urban forest partnership with a yearly Arbor Day Proclamation at City Hall.

Street Tree Program Santa Barbara Beautiful continues to preserve and protect Santa Barbara’s rich and diverse urban forest through its neighborhood street tree program. With funding from Santa Barbara Beautiful (raised through private donations) and the hard work of City Parks & Recreation Department crews, this partnership has planted more than 13,000 street trees within the City of Santa Barbara. This year’s severe drought has impacted the street tree program, with preservation of existing trees now a priority. Continued on page 41

Commitment to the Arts, Collaboration,

& Education


I Madonnari A large-scale chalk rendering of an original work of St. Barbara of the Roses by the Funk Zone’s Youth Interactive art team lit up the Old Mission plaza in dynamic blazing color for the I Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival over the Memorial Day Holiday. 2014 marked the seventh consecutive year SBB has sponsored this art project that benefits the Children’s Creative Project. This year's project was dynamic, and, through the process, mentored an energetic group of young artists.

COMMITMENT TO COLLABORATION: The Santa Barbara Public Gardens Partnership - “Get Inspired!” was the rallying cry heard from Santa Barbara’s many public gardens that have collaborated to develop the ongoing Public Gardens Partnership. The countywide collaboration promotes awareness of Santa Barbara's unique and inspiring public gardens, celebrates their beauty and benefits, and encourages their year-round enjoyment. Events included botanical lectures by local garden experts, and tours of Casa Del Herrero; Ganna Walska Lotusland; Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden; the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, and Rancho La Patera & Stow House, among others.

State Street Flags As Santa Barbara Beautiful entered its 49th year in 2014, the community-supported non-profit organization continued its commitment to Downtown Santa Barbara’s State Street Flag Program. Brightly colored soft green flags fluttered along State Street for a week during April calling attention to the organization and its mission of promoting beautification through planting trees, recognizing excellence in architecture and landscaping, and promoting art in public places.

Santa Barbara Beautiful continues its strong commitment to visual and cultural arts with community grants to help fund significant projects. Recent collaborations include the new airport terminal mosaic medallion; restoration of Herbert Bayer’s Chromatic Gate; and the development of a Cultural Arts Master Plan. This year the organization collaborated with the newly established Lutah Maria Riggs Society to help produce a feature length film documenting the life and works of Lutah Maria Riggs, one of Santa Barbara’s legendary female architects. A Summer Solstice Festival grant helped fund artist's tools and supplies for the annual art-based festival. A grant to the County Arts Commission helped fund the update of the Santa Barbara public art DVD, A Sense of Place, highlighting the public art in Santa Barbara in a high definition format. The update includes interviews from community leaders, artists, and arts organizers.

COMMITMENT TO education: Arbor Day Program Santa Barbara Beautiful continued its Arbor Day tradition of teaching the value of trees by planting nine trees at seven local schools as wll as a donating 32 treerelated books to all local elementary and secondary local schools and libraries in April, the perfect month to celebrate trees and horticulture. Scholarship Program Santa Barbara Beautiful’s commitment to higher education now includes funding of an annual City College scholarship. The SBB scholarship grants a total of $1000 per year - $500 per semester - alternating each semester between Environmental Horticulture and Visual Arts. The Scholarship testifies to SBB’s commitment to education and partnerships within the community. Continued on page 43 41
