    On Jan. 14, an exhibit on the renowned and widely beloved artist Vincent Van Gogh opened at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. However, this exhibit does not display any original Van Gogh paintings but instead is an immersive experience created with floor to ceiling moving projections of his works.

    “The purpose of this exhibit is to go beyond the legend,” said Fanny Curtat, art historian and curator for the exhibit. “It connects the 21st century to this 19th-century artist.”
    Van Gogh is known for the darkness in his life even though his work, so expressive and full of color, contradicts that. He famously only sold one painting in his lifetime but if he simply had lived longer, Curtat claimed, he would have found success alongside his fellow Post-Impressionists who were all struggling artists at one point. This exhibit wants to tell a story that goes beyond the tragic aspects of his life that Van Gogh is known for.
    The exhibit begins with an education room. It has a series of panels that recount Van Gogh’s life, including several of his optimistic quotes from letters to his brother Theo. Theo Van Gogh died only six months after his brother and it was his wife, Johanna Van Gogh-Bonger, who decided to publish their correspondence and eventually translated them into English.
    “She is the unsung hero of all this,” Curtat said. She recognized her late brother-in-law’s genius, fought for his work to be seen, and is now credited for his fame.
    The immersive experience begins with the Waterfall Room, where swirls of colors drip from the ceiling to the floor. This lets visitors know they are not about to enter a typical exhibit.
    Van Gogh was chosen to have his work displayed this way because “it is already moving,”’ Curtat said.
    The main room cycles through more than 300 of Van Gogh’s works; the floor and ceiling change completely so it feels as if you are literally in “Starry Night” or “Wheatfield with Crows.” At other times, you are surrounded by his beautiful floral work, his expressive portraits, or the subtly moving and blinking faces of Van Gogh himself. The stunning visuals are accompanied by music and quotes from Van Gogh read aloud in several languages.
    “This is not a replacement for a traditional art exhibit,” Curtat said. “This is a complement. People spend an average of 10 seconds in front of a painting.”
    The goal of “Beyond Van Gogh” is to see his work differently and inspire people to appreciate traditional art exhibits as well.
    When asked what Van Gogh would think of the exhibit, Curtat said: “It’s hard to say. It would be very overwhelming for him. He struggled with what little fame he had during his lifetime.”
    But the other aspect – sharing with the world how he captured the healing quality of nature – that he would have loved. The exhibit itself was created during the pandemic. In a way, it is fitting that Van Gogh was chosen who, despite his demons, created so much beauty.
    “He was capable of painting “Stary Night” while living in an asylum,” Curtat said. “He transcended the hardship of life through his art.”

    BETTY WHITE CHALLENGE

    In honor of the #BettyWhiteChallenge that has been gaining momentum on social media, San Diego Humane Society is taking a different approach on the challenge by waiving adoption fees for all adult animals through Sunday, Jan. 16. In honor of what would have been Betty White’s 100th birthday, the organization hopes to find homes for 100 animals by Jan. 17.
    “Betty White was an inspiration for many reasons, and her commitment to supporting animals was certainly one of them,” said San Diego Humane Society COO Jessica Des Lauriers. “We’re happy to honor her legacy by waiving adoption fees and helping more pets find loving homes. We are seeing the impact of the pandemic — the pause in spay and neuter efforts has led to more animals in shelters across the country, so there’s never been a better time to adopt a pet.” Check out Certified RAD animals at https://www.sdhumane.org/adopt/featured-pets/rad/.

    “Many activities planned for 2022 are built on recent work schedule modifications and project successes realized in 2021. The first objective for 2022 will be to ensure that all maintenance, janitorial and landscaping activities continue to improve neighborhood aesthetics and bolster civic partnerships created from shared projects and goals, whether small, such as weed abatement, or large, such as working with the La Jolla Community Foundation as the Streetscape Plan begins to take place,” according to Enhance La Jolla.

    MAD personnel continue to work with vendors daily, ensuring immediate response to items requiring attention. The communication frequency between MAD personnel and vendors has led to improved response times during 2021. In addition to daily and weekly focus areas, MAD personnel and vendors meet monthly for several hours, physically walking the district to identify larger projects and areas in need of extra care.

    The outpatient pavilion will address the growing demand for specialized diagnostic, treatment and surgical services and will house specialty clinical programs, including oncology, neurosurgery, urology, otolaryngology and orthopedics, as well as ambulatory surgery operating rooms, gastroenterology procedure rooms, advanced imaging, infusion and radiation oncology.

    WASTEWATER MONITORING RECOGNIZED

    Two state agencies have formally recognized the City of San Diego’s Public Utilities Department for its assistance in monitoring wastewater in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. “The monitoring of wastewater can provide key information that is helpful in understanding and preventing the spread of COVID-19,” said Shauna Lorance, director of the Public Utilities Department. “We are very proud to continue providing assistance to state and federal agencies with these efforts.”

    Public Utilities and several other California agencies and institutions pioneered an approach that better assesses the spread of COVID-19 through testing wastewater, according to the State Water Quality Control Board. This approach yields information about the prevalence of the diseases in populations several days sooner than individual testing and hospitalization records, the board stated. 

    The City has been voluntarily involved with multiple studies for COVID-19 monitoring of wastewater since the beginning of the pandemic. City staff efforts predate the development of federal and state epidemiology programs, and data collected were critical in helping to understand the spread, movement and control of the virus in our communities. When the studies are completed, the information will be shared with the public.  

    GONZALEZ RESIGNS

    Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez has resigned from the state legislature for a leadership position at the California Labor Federation, AFL-CIO. The San Diego Democrat represented the 80th Assembly District, which encompasses the southern part of San Diego and most of Chula Vista and National City, for eight years. She said will be preparing to lead the 2.1 million-member state labor federation as its executive secretary-treasurer in July 2022.
    “As a legislator and as a labor leader, my top priority has been to create opportunities that lead to more jobs, better jobs, and better lives for working people,'' Gonzalez said. “It's been an honor to serve the people of San Diego County and the entire state as a lawmaker who tried to accomplish the most amount of good for the most amount of people.”

    AVOID SIERRA TRAVEL

    Caltrans Director Toks Omishakin is urging motorists to avoid non-essential mountain travel in California until weather conditions improve. Caltrans has closed 45 state highways since Dec. 24 due to record snowfall in the Sierra Nevada. While Caltrans has reopened 29 highways – including Interstate 80 and U.S. Highway 50, the main gateways to Lake Tahoe – roadway conditions remain challenging with extensive delays and chain controls in effect. In response to the record snowfall, Caltrans has redirected all available crews into the mountains to reopen roadways, bringing operators from as far away as the Bay Area to assist. The department has 1,350 field staff clearing mountain highways, working 24/7 in 12-hour shifts, and has deployed more than 600 snowplows statewide.

    OTAY CONNECTION COMPLETED

    On Dec. 16, federal, state, local, and Mexican Government officials joined Caltrans and SANDAG to commemorate the completion of the southbound State Route 125 (SR 125) to eastbound State Route 905 (SR 905) and State Route 11 (SR 11) connectors in Otay Mesa. The new connectors provide a direct highway connection from East County and Chula Vista to the Otay Mesa area and existing Otay Mesa Port of Entry, helping to reduce congestion for passenger and commercial vehicles crossing the border and increasing access to employment opportunities for surrounding residents.

    GULLS SEASON EXTENDED

    "And just like that" it was 2022… But not before 2021 off-the-charts fun! Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw would approve.

    One of the best events period of 2021, A Night of Rebetika & Symranika Greek, music by the best of the best, Polyxeni and The Gents, Oriste (fab) catering by Nasia Ampelas, think incredible tarlette bites of crème fraiche and caviar, petite Spanakopita, and let’s circle back to bottomless Veuve, and caviar with salmon! All at the chic venue of Greek gallery owner Theo’s L&G Projects in La Jolla with a milieu of art by Otto, Laurie Raskins, and Dimitri LIkissas.

    The music, joyful, and heartfelt. As Polyxeni explained: “It’s a celebration of epochs long gone and a musical tradition that is deep rooted in my core through my ancestors. We need to keep the candle burning.”

    More to come as added by Nasia Ampelas: “I felt we stayed true to our roots and our ancestors would be proud. My goal is to do more of these nights highlighting more Greek music and pairing it with great food.” You mean epic food Nasia!

    Meanwhile Gloria and Charlie McCoy hosted the Patron’s of the Prado Director’s Circle with beneficiary recognition, carolers, and Catering Solutions Ron McMillan manning the kitchen and delectable eats. Highlight, singing by the patrons!

    More heartfelt came with the holiday party benefiting the League House owned by the Social Service League of La Jolla. As explained by president Suzanne Ward: “League House provides affordable housing and meals for eligible seniors. Our volunteer members worked very hard to create a memorable evening and I thank them as well as our guests for their support.”

    Then it was no stopping the glam squad who came to cheer in the New Year at Dolce’s. With a theme of black and white dress, some of the town’s most DNA blessed gals upped the level of cheer for the New Year. All organized by the ever fun and creative Karian Forsyth. ‘Til next time!

    Margo Schwab is the owner and publisher of The Social Diary. She has produced TV segments, acted, and is currently filming a documentary #WildforVersace with multi-award-winning documentary producer #AntonioContrerasAviance, which will include elements of her passions, animals and fashion.

    While COVID continued with new variants, residents in La Jolla persisted demonstrating their mental toughness, resolve, and ability to adapt quickly to changing times. Public meetings continued remotely, people did what was necessary to protect themselves and others during the pandemic, and communities forged ahead dealing with the day-to-day realities of the new normal. The following are some of the more important things that happened along the beachfront in 2021.

    JANUARY

    POLAR PLUNGE

    As usual, an estimated 200-plus people sans wetsuits took the plunge, diving into the chilling waters off La Jolla Shores on New Year’s Day in what has become an annual rite of passage for die hard ocean users.

     

    SEALEBRATION

    For the seventh year, this urban beach was closed starting Dec. 15, 2020 lasting through January ending May 15 to give the seals privacy prior to giving birth, delivering their pups safely away from human interference. Visitors were not able to access the sands of Casa Beach as a chain link secured the stairs leading to seals on the beach.

     

    OUTDOORS OUTREACH

    The City of San Diego sought to support local businesses during the pandemic with a new outreach effort to provide education to business owners, reminding them about safety requirements for those providing outdoor dining and retail operations. In order to expand business and dining into the public right-of-way and private parking lots, businesses were required to obtain a Temporary Outdoor Business Operations Permit. Requirements for the construction of decks, platforms and temporary structures were outlined as part of the guidance that was available to business owners seeking a permit.

     

    BICYCLES BACKED UP

    Bicycle retail and repair shops in La Jolla and Pacific Beach fared better than most during the pandemic. But there was a new problem in 2021: supply. “It’s kind of a double-edged sword,” said Jason Millard, manager of California Bicycle, a 45-year-old bike shop at 7462 La Jolla Blvd. “We’re extremely busy. But at the same time, there’s a huge lack of inventory across the nation. That has put quite a few bicycle stores out of business.

     

    FEBRUARY

     

    BIRCH SEA DRAGONS

    The one-year anniversary of two Weedy Seadragons hatching at Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego was celebrated by launching a live Seadragon cam and an exclusive collection of Weedy Sea Dragon merchandise

     

    PROPS FOR PROF

    La Jolla Institute for Immunology Professor Erica Ollmann Saphire, Ph.D. was named Scientist of the Year by ARCS San Diego, a chapter of the Achievement Rewards for College Scientists Foundation. The annual award recognized Saphire's breakthroughs in structural virology and her leadership of the Coronavirus Immunotherapy Consortium this year. One San Diego scientist is recognized each year.

     

    LAW REVIEW

    La Jolla Country Day School juniors and aspiring attorneys Terry Tran and Ricardo Cervera created the first Torrey Law Review, a student publication on legal topics submitted by students. The new entity is only the second high school law review in the United States, and the only high school law review with a professional board.

     

    MARCH

     

    FISHING LINE RECYCLING

    UC San Diego students lobbied for fishing line recycling bins at the entrances around Black’s Beach to protect sea life and the environment. UCSD Triton Lobby Corps proposed a policy plan to install special fishing line recycling bins. The corps is a campus-based entity of students who recruit and engage students and advocate on legislation and issues involving higher education.

     

    UC ‘SAN DIEGONAUTS’

    When NASA unveiled the initial team of astronauts for its ambitious moon exploration project, the news quickly spread that two of the announced 18 Artemis program team members hold degrees from UC San Diego. The superstar alums were Jessica Meir, who received her Ph.D. in marine biology in 2009 from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and Kate Rubins, who earned a bachelor of science degree in molecular biology in 1999. As members of the Artemis Team, Meir and Rubins will help pave the way for NASA’s next lunar missions including sending the first woman and next man to walk on the moon in 2024.

     

    REAL ESTATE RISE

    Realtor Andy Nelson in La Jolla in a San Diego Community News Group feature talked about low inventory being the new normal for the local coastal real estate market today and for the foreseeable future. Statistics showed it was a seller’s market with San Diego County median home prices having risen 14.4 percent since 2020 due to low mortgage rates. Demand remained at an all-time high while inventory was low. In fact, the average home was only on the market for 51 days before being sold.

     

    RESTRICTIONS REVISED

    The state notified San Diego County that it would be allowed to lift some COVID restrictions moving from the most restrictive Purple Tier into the less restrictive Red Tier. The change in tiers allowed restaurants, gyms, movie theaters and other businesses to begin moving operations indoors with capacity limits.

     

    GUARD CHANGES

    Brett Murphy, president of La Jolla Village Merchants Association, the community’s business improvement district, stepped down from his post as president at the merchant group’s March meeting. Murphy nominated Cody Decker, owner of Decker’s Dog + Cat, LJVMA board vice president, as his replacement. Decker accepted and was named LJVMA’s new leader.

     

    LA JOLLA ENHANCED

    The first Enhance La Jolla Day was March 20 as Enhance La Jolla, the community’s maintenance assessment district, and the La Jolla Village Merchants Association, joined to spruce up the Village with a community improvement project. Organizations participating included La Jolla Community Foundation, City of San Diego District 1, La Jolla Town Council, La Jolla Parks and Beaches, La Jolla Community Planning Association, La Jolla Shores Association, Urban Corps, Rotary Club of La Jolla, The National League of Young Men and Nissho of Southern California. The community improvement project that day involved placing rocks and ground cover in tree wells.

     

    APRIL

     

    HISTORIC RETIREMENT

    Heath Fox, executive director of the La Jolla Historical Society, announced he would retire in the fall capping a decade-long career as a museum director and an arts and culture professional. Under Fox’s stewardship the historical society’s annual budget doubled from $600,000 in 2012 to $1.25 million eight years later in 2020. Growth was spurred by donations, grants, membership dues and two annual signature springtime community events – La Jolla Concourse D’Elegance classic car show and the Secret Garden Tour.

     

    MAY

     

    PREBYS LARGESSE

    The initial rollout of the Conrad Prebys Foundation grant cycle continuing the legacy of the famed late property developer and philanthropist was astounding: 121 grant projects totaling nearly $78 million. The size of the grants awarded ranged from a $7,500 one-time grant to a $15 million multi-year grant. The awarded applicants reflect a balance between focus areas of personal interest to Prebys, which included visual and performing arts, higher education, medical research, health care, youth development, and animal conservation.

     

    SUPERINTENDENT PROMOTED

    San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten was confirmed as the next U.S. Deputy Education Secretary by a vote from the Senate to serve President Joe Biden and students nationwide. Once Marten was sworn into office by the Biden administration, she assumed the federal post after more than three decades as an educator in San Diego, including eight years as superintendent of California’s second-largest district.

     

    A(GASSED) OVER LEAFBLOWERS

    The transition from gas to electric power to lessen greenhouse gas emissions continued as environmental and civic groups teamed to consider forming a coalition advocating a gas-powered leaf blower ban.

     

    OUTDOOR DINING EXTENDED

    Beach area merchants were elated the City approved extending an interim urgency ordinance allowing permitting for outdoor dining to continue through July 13, 2022. But concerns remained that rules and regulations governing those outdoor dining enclosures – everything from makeshift structures to near-permanent ones – be properly enforced and maintained. Without the extension, permits for all restaurants were set to expire on July 13. With the extension, businesses and restaurants were allowed to continue outdoor operations.

     

    SEA LION ADVOCACY

    Sea lion advocates promoted turning the existing colony in and around La Jolla Cove into a proper public attraction. Carol Toye of Sierra Club Seal Society, which runs a Cove docent sea lion program, visited La Jolla Village Merchants Association to discuss what could be done to turn public sea lion viewing there into a bonafide attraction. She argued there are numerous reasons why doing so would be desirable.

     

    JUNE

     

    LJ FIREWORKS CHALLENGED

    It was déjà vu. La Jolla resumed plans to host a Fourth of July fireworks display and, as in the past, an environmental attorney filed a lawsuit to block the nonprofit organizing the pyrotechnics event, arguing the display would harm local wildlife and the environment.

     

    GRAND REOPENING

    La Jolla Village Merchants Association on June 15 held a grand ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating 38 businesses that opened, or were opening, during the past 15 months of COVID. The celebratory event was held at Sotheby’s Plaza, 1111 Prospect Ave.

     

    OLTEN HONORED

    Carol Olten of La Jolla Historical Society was honored with the Town Crier award by Save Our Heritage Organisation. The award by SOHO, San Diego's countywide preservation group, came at its 38th annual People In Preservation Awards.

     

    SIERRA CLUB REQUEST

    The Sierra Club asked the City to temporarily close the sea lion rookery at Point La Jolla while encouraging large numbers of people not to go near the federally protected marine mammals.

     

    NEW MARKET PROPOSED

    La Jolla Village Merchants Association proposed exploring starting a new Thursday night market on Wall Street that ran into opposition from an existing community market and residents against commercial use of the streets or public right-of-way.

     

    VACCINATIONS PITCHED

    Nancy Yam, associate chief pharmacy officer at UC San Diego Health, threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the San Diego Padres’ reopening game June 17, two days after the state lifted most COVID restrictions for outdoor gatherings. UC San Diego Health is the official health care provider for the Padres. Under Yam’s management at the Petco Park Vaccination Super Station, as well as other sites, more than 500,000 COVID vaccine doses were administered.

     

    JULY

     

    FIREWORKS FIZZLE

    A July 2 press conference was called by La Jolla Fireworks Foundation organizers to lambaste the last-minute cancellation by the City of the return of Fourth of July fireworks at the Cove due to permitting problems. A court challenge was brought by environmental attorney Bryan Pease, who contended fireworks harassed seals and currently pupping sea lions near where the fireworks were to be set off. That, coupled with a determination by the California Coastal Commission that a coastal development permit was in fact required to host the pyrotechnics event, doomed the popular community event for a fourth consecutive year.

     

    SMALL-BUSINESS AIDED

    To support the economic recovery of small businesses and restaurants impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the City launched the new Small Business and Restaurant Assistance (SBRA) Program. Through SBRA, qualifed local businesses could access support to easily navigate the City’s planning requirements and permitting process, expediting construction projects and improvements that can give businesses a boost and help grow their operations. Mayor Todd Gloria’s “Back to Work SD” budget provided funding to establish the first-of-its-kind program, operated through the City’s Development Services Department.

     

    NINE TEN CELEBRATED

    Nine-Ten Restaurant and Bar in La Jolla’s Grande Colonial Hotel celebrated a century of memories and 20 years as one of San Diego’s pioneer farm-to-table restaurants.

     

    PROUD TRADITION CONTINUED

    Straddling two cultures, La Jolla Country Day Class of 2021 graduate and Barona Tribal Member Jenna Rain Hernandez proudly continued her family’s military tradition announcing she would attend the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. Inspired to pursue a military career by her parents, both West Point graduates, Hernandez was now the second Barona Tribal Member in her family to attend one of the country’s premier military academies.

     

    OLYMPIC SURFING DEBUTS

    As if he’d just mastered a big wave, International Surfing Association president Fernando Aguerre of La Jolla was in Tokyo just prior to the summer Olympic Games rejoicing as his 20-plus year effort to make surfing an Olympic sport had ended in triumph. “It was a long battle, and not an easy one, but a good surfer never really gives up; you stay on the wave,” said Aguerre of his accomplishment.

     

    VILLA MILESTONE

    Brockton Villa overlooking La Jolla Cove marked its 30th anniversary operating out of the former seaside cottage built in 1894. Proud co-owners Megan and David Heine have been sole stewards of the historic cottage-turned-casual-restaurant at 1235 Coast Blvd., which is renowned for its signature menu item, the Coast Toast.

     

    LA JOLLA ENHANCED

    The community’s maintenance assessment district, Enhance La Jolla, unveiled phase one of a long-range plan to improve community gathering spaces by reclaiming and increasing space for pedestrians, street furniture, and landscape. On July 15, the MAD’s 13-member board outlined its long-term vision for re-imagining the Village. That update is to include a new Prospect Street plaza between Girard Avenue and Herschel Street. The MAD’s objective is for infrastructure improvements to be a catalyst for business, socializing, and programming throughout the year.

     

    AUGUST

     

    LEAFBLOWERS BLOWN AWAY

    Nissho of California, the company servicing the maintenance assessment district overseen by Enhance La Jolla, unveiled its new quieter electric battery-operated leaf blower that it began using Aug. 1.

     

    SEALS PERMIT SOUGHT

    The City of San Diego submitted an application for a temporary emergency closure of a portion of Point La Jolla at Ellen Scripps Browning Park, in an effort informed by California Coastal Commission guidance, to protect the public and the sea lion rookery located along the shoreline during the annual sea lion pupping season.

     

    CYCLING SAFETY CITED

    A dozen fatalities in bicycle-versus-vehicle accidents in 2021, including the death of a 34-year-old Salk scientist with an 11-month-old child in La Jolla, underscored the need for infrastructure improvements to make San Diego’s streets safer. After an alarming number of bicyclists were struck and killed by motorists, Mayor Todd Gloria said: “One cyclist death is too many, particularly when we know it’s preventable. My administration has taken a number of steps to help reach our Vision Zero goal of eliminating fatalities and serious injuries on our roads, including establishing a new team to create bike lanes more quickly.”

     

    HISTORIC DESIGNATION

    Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego nominated the Munk Laboratory, a post-and-beam structure at the center of its oceanfront campus, for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.

     

    FACEBOOK HIKERS

    Hikers post-pandemic were re-emerging and grabbing their canteens and boots to pound the trails once again assisted by San Diego Hiking Society Facebook Group, which helped them not only gather but learn the basics and share information as well about trails near and far.

     

    SEPTEMBER

     

    CHANGING OF THE GUARD

    La Jolla Historical Society’s board appointed Lauren Lockhart to succeed retiring executive director Heath Fox. Lockhart was arts manager for the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority for eight years. She was eager to help grow the local arts community and further the cause of the historical society moving forward.

     

    SHARK BEHAVIOR ANALYZED

    For years it’s been a mystery as to why leopard sharks return every summer in massive numbers to the coastal waters of La Jolla. Turned out the sharks, harmless to humans, are mostly female and mostly pregnant, according to a study done by Andrew Nosal, Ph.D., a marine biologist, and professor with the University of San Diego's Environmental and Ocean Sciences Department who has studied leopard sharks since 2007.

     

    RISING MEDICAL STAR

    Salk neuroscientist Kay M. Tye received the 2021 Blavatnik National Awards for Young Scientists for brain research she’s done that could ultimately help revolutionize mental-health treatment. Award winners are deemed rising stars in their respective fields. Tye, Ph.D., professor, Systems Neuroscience Laboratory at Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, was a unanimous choice to be the 2021 Blavatnik National Awards Laureate in Life Sciences.

     

    SUSTAINABLE HOUSING SUPPORTED

    The housing, climate, and equity crises can all be addressed simultaneously. That conclusion was drawn by elected officials, environmentalists, and social activists at a Sept. 23 press conference called to praise a new report titled “Solving Sprawl: Building Housing for a Sustainable and Equitable San Diego.” The report was done by the Climate Action Campaign, the leading climate watchdog in San Diego and Orange counties whose mission is to end the climate crisis.

      

    OCTOBER

     

    ART & WINE FEST RETURNS

    After a year’s COVID hiatus, La Jolla Art & Wine Festival returned Oct. 9-10 along La Jolla’s Girard Avenue featuring more than 170 artists, gourmet food, interactive activities, live art and music and adoptable animals, with wine, craft breweries, and a spirits garden. The event boasts a collection of internationally recognized talent, as well as fresh up-and-coming artists just waiting to be discovered.

     

    MIRACLE BABIES

    Two La Jolla women, Sandra Alavi and Selma Alameri Daniels, co-chaired the 12th annual Miracle Babies gala which raises funds to unite families with critically ill newborns in neonatal intensive care.

     

    SPACES AS PLACES

    San Diego City Council approved the Spaces as Places program to allow businesses and institutions to continue occupying outdoor public spaces that were temporarily approved for use in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Spaces as Places was devised as a way to transition temporary spaces into permanent facilities with established design and safety standards. The program offered a menu of options to allow for the creation of outdoor areas for dining, walking, biking and other activities.

     

    SAFE PLACES INITIATIVE

    District 1 Council member Joe LaCava, with the support of City and community leaders, launched a “Safe Places Initiative” by La Jolla businesses to provide safe havens and resources for hate crime victims. “Racism and discrimination are not bound by political or physical boundaries,” said LaCava. “I am proud of La Jolla merchants that are joining others across our City in support of the Safe Space program. This collaboration between local businesses and SDPD helps foster safety for those who work, live, and shop in our neighborhoods. This action is not a beginning or an end, but continuing leadership that we will not tolerate hate in any neighborhood.”

    PREUSS ART MURAL

    A 900-foot-square student mural done by Preuss School students in art teacher Tamima Noorzay’s class in collaboration with Baltimore-based artist Jay Wolf Schossberg-Cohen, promoted inclusivity and questioned whether guaranteed U.S. Constitutional rights are being equitably applied to all people. The mural included student comments as well as their art. The 21-year-old Preuss School UC San Diego is a unique charter middle and high school for low-income students striving to become the first in their families to graduate from college.

     

    REDISTRICTING REVISITED

    Some La Jollans were lobbying to keep the boundaries of Council District 1 mostly unchanged from 2010, while some UC San Diego students wanted the university removed from District 1 and placed in District 6 with its large Asian population. That was one of the battle lines being drawn as San Diego’s nine council districts were likely to be readjusted as part of the ongoing 10-year redistricting cycle.

     

    TROLLEY EXTENSION OPENS

    On Nov. 21, public officials formally dedicated the 11-mile Blue Line Trolley extension at the UC San Diego Central Campus Station with a virtual ribbon-cutting as an on-screen trolley crashed through a banner strung across trolley tracks. The new extension stretches from the U.S.-Mexico border through downtown and the MidCoast corridor with new stations at Tecolote Road, Clairemont Drive, Balboa Avenue, Nobel Drive, VA Medical Center, UC San Diego Central Campus, UC San Diego Health La Jolla, Executive Drive, and the UTC transit center.

     

    LJ VILLAGE REDEVELOPMENT

    La Jolla’s Planned District Ordinance Committee was updated Nov. 8 by architect Mark Steele on preliminary streetscape plans for the phased redevelopment of La Jolla’s downtown Village. Those plans include a new proposed Prospect Street Plaza between Girard Avenue and Herschel Street.

     

    DECEMBER

     

    ART WALK COMEBACK

    Art walks returned by popular demand to the Village of La Jolla starting Dec. 3. “We now have a monthly First Friday Art Walk,” said Jodi Rudick, executive director of La Jolla Village Merchants Association, the community’s business improvement district.

     

    BELVEDERE CONTROVERSY

    Replacement of a belvedere destroyed by vandals years ago at Windansea in La Jolla became a bone of contention between competing groups arguing over whether a new structure there would block views and threaten shoreline erosion. La Jolla Parks and Beaches, Inc. approved plans for the replacement of a historic belvedere at Windansea beach. The previous belvedere, constructed around 1912, was destroyed in the early ’80s, apparently hauled down by a vehicle using chains.

    Expanded Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego in La Jolla to reopen in April

    A glimpse into the new state-of-the-art Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego in La Jolla revealed a maze of indoor galleries in cavernous climate-controlled surroundings.
    The museum’s indoor exhibit space is now quadrupled offering outdoor patios with sweeping ocean views. The museum’s remodel/expansion also pays homage to the building’s extensive architectural heritage.

    A special sneak peek at La Jolla’s vastly improved $105 million renovations and expansion of MCASD by world-renowned Seldorf Architects was led on Dec. 15 by Kathryn Kanjo, David C. Copley director/CEO of MCASD.
    “We had the one chance to do the renovation,” said Kanjo. “We went big. We went deep. We gathered the space.”
    Kanjo pointed out the updated MCASD has about 40,000 square feet of exhibit space compared with only about 10,000 feet previously. She said the museum is now appropriately sized to fulfill its many needs.
    “With the Seldorf expansion, MCASD’s flagship building is, at last, scaled to showcase the work it has collected over the past decades,” she said. “Soaring ceilings and natural light allow for inviting displays of the collection alongside lively changing exhibitions.”
    Added Kanjo: “The design honors the museum’s rich architectural history as it frames distinctive views of La Jolla Village and the coast, providing an updated space for the art and today’s audience. We look forward to inviting the public to explore our world, our region, and ourselves through the prism of contemporary art.”
    MCASD La Jolla is scheduled to reopen to the public in April.
    Of the museum’s refit, principal architect Annabelle Selldorf said, “Our goal for the museum was to allow the fantastic site and views of the Pacific Ocean to guide a coherent circulation path and instill a generous and inclusive spirit to bring people to the great collection of MCASD.”
    MCASD traces its roots to La Jolla philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps whose modern oceanfront dwelling in La Jolla, completed in 1916 by noted architect Irving Gill (1870-1936), served as the museum’s first location in 1941. The property has since undergone several architecturally distinct expansions. Mosher & Drew completed a series of expansions in 1950, 1960, and again in the late 1970s.
    There was also a 1996 renovation of the La Jolla property by Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates, which restored the Scripps House facade, added Axline Court, and enhanced the museum’s garden and cafe.
    “We are an 80-year-old institution collecting art from 1950,” said Kanjo. “We needed more space to show our collection of more than 5,000 pieces, which are now in a 25,000-square-foot storage facility. We’re expecting to bring pieces back and have them on a longer-term view, while simultaneously being able to have special exhibitions.”
    Kanjo conducted a grand tour of the new, improved, and expanded museum, winding through its diverse exhibit spaces with towering ceilings located on multiple levels.
    Asked why Annabelle Seldorf from the East Coast was selected to do the museum remodel, Kanjo replied, “She had designed such exquisite art spaces, not just for museums but also for commercial art galleries. Also, we chose her for her ability to deal with historical renovations. She is not the kind of architect who comes in and plops something new down. She works very pragmatically with the community and with what she’s given.”
    Kanjo noted permitting delays not related to COVID have extended the museum’s renovation/expansion. “Construction has taken 32 months so far, and it was supposed to have taken 28,” she said. “We absorbed a lot of the delays because it was such a big project.”
    Kanjo said the museum’s reconfigured space now includes onsite underground staff parking. The former Sherwood Auditorium has been converted into an exhibition space. The cafe space in the front of the museum will return with a new proprietor to be announced soon.
    There will also be lots of new public meeting space, indoors and out, at MCASD.
    “We’re not planning to treat this so much as a gallery but as a people space for receptions, for the public,” Kanjo said. “If they want a break from the art, they can come out and look at the view, where we’ll have two long benches along the wall. We’ll also do rentals. It will help us to have memories made here with different types of events.”

    INAUGURAL MCASD EXHIBITION
    For its inaugural curated exhibition, MCASD in April will introduce a presentation titled “Niki de Saint Phalle in the 1960s.” It will be the first exhibition to focus on the experimental and prolific work of trailblazing French-American artist and sculptor Niki de Sainte Phalle (1930-2002), during this formative decade of her work.
    On view through July, the Saint Phalle exhibit will feature numerous works from European collections, many seen in the United States for the first time. The exhibition will explore this transformative 10-year period of Saint Phalle’s work when she embarked on two of her most significant series: the tirs, or “shooting paintings,” and the exuberant sculptures of women she called Nanas.
    Affirming the artist’s place in post-war art history, this show will highlight her prescient works of performance, participatory, and feminist art, as well as her many transatlantic projects and collaborations.
    “While local audiences are familiar with Saint Phalle’s later fantastical works of public art, we in Southern California have had less exposure to her radical work of the 1960s, which put into circulation strikingly original representations that resonate strongly in our moment,” said Jill Dawsey, MCASD La Jolla’s curator. “Saint Phalle had an important relationship to this region. In the early ’60s, she staged several shooting sessions in Los Angeles, in what were among the earliest instances of performance art in Southern California. She would eventually settle in San Diego in the 1990s.”
    “Having spent the last years of her life in La Jolla, many of Saint Phalle’s fantastical creatures and visionary environments cover our landscape and resonate with the community,” said Kathryn Kanjo, MCASD’s director/CEO. “This rare presentation from a pivotal period in the artist’s career is a gift to our public and a homecoming for the artist.”
