In an effort to boost funding at five city-owned arts centers, the Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved a plan that would rename the facilities after million-dollar donors. The endowment program, which also seeks $500,000 donors for each of the four theaters in the downtown Los Angeles Theater Center, was proposed by the city's Cultural Affairs Department as a way to maintain private funding of the centers into the 21st century.

With a quick turn of her head, Shirley Martin cues a trio of dancers. They take their positions and begin a series of strong movements, each accented by the sharp flicker of a colored scarf. The music--a blues groove provided by a live trio--vibrates the floor of the nearby mezzanine, where printmaker Gail Jacobs is working on a grant application. The bass drifts even farther upward, to the theater on the second floor, where a new play is in rehearsal.

McGee sounds like the proud chief architect touring the site, missing only his hard hat.
