October 20, 1994

Seal Beach's historic wood pier has been through a lot lately.

A 1992 fire on the pier's midsection caused $250,000 in damage. Four months ago, a second fire caused $350,000 in damage, closing it temporarily.

But Seal Beach officials have embarked on reconstruction.

Workers are repairing damage caused by the 1992 fire. The city has raised $25,000 to pay the $100,000 not covered by insurance.

Work began about two months ago to replace the wood pilings and supports burned in the 1994 fire. The city has received $8,000 in donations toward its $130,000 deductible cost.


An opening reception for "Treading on Hallowed Ground," a new art exhibition at Chapman University's Guggenheim Gallery, is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Argyros Forum, Room 208.

Artist Clifford Davis, professor of art at Asbury College in Kentucky, will speak on "Satire and Irreverence in Religious Art."

The exhibition features art that takes a critical view of organized religious doctrines, according to college officials. Information: (714) 997-6607.
