Oceanside Museum, Balboa Theater, bright eye of MOPA, scandal of MOCA

Timken Gallery and the Putnam Sisters, San Diego Rep, San Diego Historical Society

This classic ensemble theater has been achieved at the price of ensemble everything, where members can't get away from work or each other. During one two-year period, four couples at or near the center of the company went through divorces. - Image by Byron Pepper

Pioneer in Oceanside

“In San Diego, the most important piece of architecture is, of course, the Mission San Luis Rey. But I feel strongly that this [the Oceanside museum] is the next most important piece.” The building began life as Oceanside’s City Hall; later it became its public library. Since the museum moved in, four years ago, the interior has undergone an extensive renovation. Completed in 1997, it received an orchid in San Diego’s annual Orchids and Onions competition for architectural excellence.

Inside Balboa Theatre. Manos's grandfather, Robert Ernest Hicks, built several theaters, including the Balboa, to create a performing-arts district downtown. During the 1980s, the city destroyed much of Hicks's life's work.

Balboa Go-Around

Jan Hicks Manos: "This is the closest we've ever gotten to including nonprofits in a plan for restoring the Balboa." Manos's grandfather, Robert Ernest Hicks, built several theaters, including the Balboa, to create a performing-arts district downtown. During the 1980s, the city destroyed much of Hicks's life's work, including the Plaza and Cabrillo theaters, to make way for Horton Plaza shopping center. Other historic theaters downtown, including the Fisher Opera House, Orpheum, Savoy, and the old Lyceum toppled under the wrecking ball for redevelopment.

Muscle Beach. "When he died, the estate left us 25 or so Max Yavno prints and money to buy our first vault.”

Bright eye

Arthur said, ‘Come to San Diego. We’re going to open a museum in a couple of months.’ I thought it was a great idea. A museum devoted to photography was still unusual.” Most other venues were merely departments of various museums of art. “And those departments would have been in the cellar. And I said, ‘Sounds good to me.’ So I was an intern, helped him open up the museum, and have been here [in San Diego] ever since.”

David Copley, Irwin Jacobs, Alan Bersin, Hugh Davies, Victor Vilaplana. Some critics are already calling it "The Bersin," in honor of the way it is being imposed on the city by Union-Tribune publisher David Copley and Bersin's wealthy mother-in-law, Rancho Santa Fe's Pauline Foster.

A Slap in the Face of the Past

In September, a story under the byline of art critic Pincus revealed that the depot project would be financed by a $5 million donation from Qualcomm founder Irwin Jacobs and his wife Joan -- along with $4.75 million more from a group of donors including Pauline Foster. "We've traveled with Hugh [Davies] and seen how similar spaces have led to great creativity by artists," Joan Jacobs was quoted as saying.

726 Fifth Avenue, c. 1886. “It is principally a negative collection, not a print collection.”

The Archive

“During the war, film was rationed and there were many prohibitions placed on photographers for security reasons, so a general lack of photographic material from that time is to be expected. That’s when portraits became, instead of the least popular photographic form, the most popular. But there didn’t seem to be any photographs of victory celebrations and that seemed very strange. Then just recently we got some photos of V-J Day — sailors throwing each other into the fountain in Horton Plaza.”

Timken Art Gallery. Did the women have beaux? The only evidence in Timken files of male attention is an undated poem, “To the Unseen Irene.”

The mystery of the Putnam sisters

The Spanish Civil War and the beginning of World War II in Europe liquefied the art market. Old Masters of quality became available at reasonable prices. Anne and Amy began to buy. Their early gifts concentrated on Spanish, Netherlandish, and Italian canvases, the Spanish as a nod to their adopted hometown’s Spanish colonial past., L.A. Times art editor William Wilson: “The Putnams made such impossible acquisitions as Goya’s Marqués de Sofraga and Sanchez Cotán’s Quince, Cabbage, Melon, and Cucumber.”

Prayer before performance. The members prayed for themselves. Three turned to God for more patience in time of stress.

Everybody Onstage for the Forgiveness and Reconciliation Number

Some actors are annoyed by directors who crowd them with examples. One is Deb Smyth, who had her share of run-ins with Bob soon after she joined Lambs Players in 1979. "She was one of those actors who comes out of college director-proof," he said. But they worked it out, Bob said, and had a respectful, we're-both-pros relationship before they became friends, and that friendship later led them into marriage.

The Rep first offered A Christmas Carol in 1977; now it is now the show people pay to experience year after year. Pictured is 1995 production.

We Had Enthusiasm, We Had Passion, We Had Hair

Following the disastrous ’88-’89 season, recalled Allsbrook, “We became acutely aware that the Rep’s financial position was precarious. We heard from vendors who weren’t being paid and saw problems with payroll. The Rep came to us for an advance [on its management fee], but the board took a very tough stand, saying that it did not exist to solve the Rep’s problems.”

Since then, the board has met every two months and looks over financial statements.

MoPA and Ollman also cultivate collectors. "There were no collectors here when I moved here, that I knew of. Once we started exhibiting, getting an audience, some people get interested in collecting." The museum hosts occasional public programs such as "The Art of Collecting" lecture held in May 1997. A collector's group pays membership fees that go to the museum. The group makes outings, such as a recent one to a Women in Photography exhibit in Santa Barbara.
