Like a poster painter or a muralist, any performance artist who brings a program to a sunny, crowded beach is wise to grab viewers' attention with bright colors and simple outlines. Still, no one would confuse the folks whose designs brighten up city walls with the great masters of the mural. Presented by the SMARTS Festival in collaboration with the Cactus Foundation, Linda J. Albertano offered a mini-history of California on Saturday afternoon at Ocean Park Beach in Santa Monica.

December is a big month for giving. I'm not sure if it's the holiday spirit or because it's our last chance to get a tax deduction, but either way it's a good month for charities and other nonprofit organizations.
