Back in the Day-
There is one piece of information highlighted in blue below regarding the “Envisioning the Future” project that is a tad off the mark. My concept was for a collaborative art project to be facilitated by internationally recognized artist Judy Chicago and renowned photographer Donald Woodman to take place in the Pomona Arts Colony. The project theme “Envisioning the Future” and process concept was fully developed by Judy and Donald and I became the project coordinator. The project was two years in development.
Santa Ana Seeks and Finds Trove of Artworks, Venues May 14, 1995|THAO HUA | TIMES STAFF WRITER
SANTA ANA — An event Saturday to promote the arts drew hundreds of people who spent the day searching for the imaginative side of the city.
One of her exhibits is a three-panel fence, with the last panel dominated with black and shades of gray, signifying death, she said. Another is called “One Man’s Trash,” a painting of an aborted fetus.
Bookout was the first artist to move into the Santora Building, where luminaries such as Lucille Ball stopped for tea on her way to the coastal cities in the mid-1900s.
