MOXIE LOOKS AT PUERTO RICO WITH PERFORMANCES THROUGH MAY 26

By Susan Taylor

May 21, 2024  (San Diego) -- The audience won’t easily remember the title of Moxie Theater’s current play (Notes on Killing Seven Oversight, Management and Economic Stability Board Members), but the set, characters, costumes, and story won’t soon be forgotten.  Patrons willing to pack a lot into their Memorial Day weekend can still get tickets to see the political drama, which ends on Sunday May 26.  A neat trick is to arrive an hour early for the Saturday or Sunday matinee which begins at 2 p.m.  These box office “rush” tickets go for just $20.

The play is about a young Puerto Rican woman from New York, who is dangerously angry over the historic colonization of Puerto Rico, its massive economic debt, and its version of Wall Street stomp-dancing on the souls of the people.

Actors Christine Carmela and William BJ Robinson are all energy all the time, just the two characters moving and yelling and pleading for 90 minutes, no intermission, as the drama barely slows down to the last words.

PASSAGES: FAMED ARCHITECT AND ARTIST JAMES HUBBELL, 1931-2024

By Miriam Raftery

May 20, 2024 (Santa Ysabel) – The world has lost a creative giant.  Visionary artist and internationally acclaimed architect James Hubbell passed away on May 17 in Chula Vista at age 92, surrounded by family members including his wife, Anne.  

“We’ve lost a great friend, a generous, creative talent, and an extraordinary man,”  reads a statement issued by the Ilan-Lael Foundation, founded by Hubbell to inspire future generations of budding artists, architects and builders. 

Hubbell designed hundreds of public and private artworks. Locally, his creations include the Pacific Portal gazebo and Pacific Rim Park’s Pearl of the Pacific on Shelter Island, the Triton Restaurants in San Diego and Carlsbad, Kuchumaa Passage, a public artwork at Rancho La Puerta Fitness Resort and Spa in Tecate, Mexico, and a mosaic foundation at Coronado Ferry Landing.

Internationally,  he headed up efforts to create a series of international peace parks at locations rimming the Pacific Ocean.  He also began a 30-year volunteer project to build Colegio La Esperanza, an elementary school embedded with mosaics to bring hope, education and beauty to students east of Tijuana, Mexico.

AN ARTIST WHO REPURPOSES

Hopefully, this exhibit will be the first of many more to come. This East County Artist's type of art would be perfect for Earth Day!
 
By Mimi Pollack, San Diego Jewish World, a member of the San Diego Online News Association
 
April 15, 2024 (San Diego) -- When immigrants first arrive, everything is new for them, and they must work to repurpose their life. Many volunteers, including Roni Breite, guide them in doing that.
 
In a similar way, Breite gives new life to discarded objects she finds and fashions them into her own unique designs. The display she had at the First Annual Artists’ Showcase at Tifereth Israel Synagogue in San Carlos earlier this month was fascinating.
