Many first-time viewers of the art from this diverse cultural region are often overwhelmed with the Asian art collection at the Norton Simon Museum. In this lecture, Edward Wilkinson, independent specialist in Indian, Himalayan and Southeast Asian art and member of the International Society of Appraisers, provides a perspective on the often-overlooked details that combine to create the visual and emotional impact of Asian art. The aim will be to consider the pure aesthetic beauty of each object or painting, which will in turn provide an alternative path to a greater understanding of Asian art. Norton Simon Museum is located at 411 W. Colorado Blvd.

Artist Juan Rodriguez has competed a mural on the rock climbing wall at Hogg's Hollow Preschool, 4490 Cornishon Ave., La Cañada. The finished mural will be unveiled at the school's annual Track and Field meet on March 19 at 9 a.m. The artwork took more than 100 hours to complete and features a fantasy theme with legendary characters and nature scenes. The climbing wall is an integral part of the physical fitness regime enjoyed by the kids of Hogg's Hollow, who develop coordination and upper body strength by climbing along the wall, as well as a sense of achievement as they gradually gain the ability to move further and further- along.

Lynn Duvall Saturday, the Feynes Mansion begins a centennial celebration with the opening of an exhibit, "House Beautiful," at the Pasadena Museum of History. Last week, La Cañada resident Ardis Willwerth described highlights of the educational programs that will explore the exhibit's Edwardian period themes. I walked through cramped, windowless rooms in the museum's lower level to meet Ardis. Outside her office, Pasadena's past is archived in boxes, folders, cabinets and computers under the care of a bevy of staff and volunteers who toil with quiet purpose in the stacks.

If there is a more beautiful city in California than Santa Barbara, we have yet to find it. Broad beaches are set against lush vegetation and a hilly landscape that is nestled just in front of the picturesque Santa Ynez Mountains. An abundance of Spanish architecture completes a panorama that could just as well be a beautiful city on the Mediterranean. In fact, Santa Barbara marketing gurus like to refer to their little piece of California as the American Riviera because of its resemblance to other warm, coastal areas in other parts of the world.
