The next time our Thousand Oaks City Council members make an artistic determination, I suggest that they only consider local talent. The way it is now, Antoine Predock--who has his office in Albuquerque--can contemplate his art from afar. Very afar. Neither he nor the writer for Architecture Magazine--who, referring to our Horror off the Highway, calls it "a welcome metaphor for the arid landscape of Thousand Oaks"--has to drive by our cellblock every day. The way things are now, the Civic Arts Plaza stands as a monument to remind passing taxpayers to think thrice about whom they vote once.

Jogging along Ocean Front Walk on Venice Beach early one morning, Albuquerque architect Antoine Predock grappled with the multitudinous images passing before his eyes. He needed to sort out the Venice Beach scene in his mind to define the character of the beachfront house he was designing for a client, he said, explaining, "Venice Beach is so many things crammed into a compact space. It contains amazing conflicts of scale and atmosphere."

A new museum that is planned to showcase both human-rights champions and atrocities got a boost last week when the Canadian government said it would pay for its operations and make it a national institution. The Canadian Museum for Human Rights, to be built in Winnipeg, will be the country's first new national museum in 40 years and the first to be built in a partnership between the private sector and government.
