A replacement is being sought for Virginia Donohugh as director of the Historical and Cultural Foundation of Orange County, a promoter of local ethnic culture. Board president Lydia Wang Himes said Donohugh, hired in 1986 as the Irvine-based foundation's first full-time staff member, resigned Nov. 22 "because she needed to do something different." Himes said she did not know Donohugh's future plans, and Donohugh could not be reached for comment.

Snail-paced efforts to create a countywide arts council are still creeping forward as the Historical and Cultural Foundation of Orange County "very, very cautiously" mulls the possibility of administering such a council. "We're not at the stage where we're considering taking on the role, (but) we will continue discussing it," foundation executive director Tricia Goldman said Monday. Orange County is one of only six counties in the state without an arts council.

Where else but Orange County would you find a Caribbean-themed benefit set in a Spanish-style courtyard celebrating the richness of Afro-American history? With the sultry rhythms of reggae wafting through the warm air (along with the spicy aromas of authentic island fare), Tom Coley said the mix was hardly accidental. "Orange County is blessed with a diversity of groups," said Coley, president of the newly formed Black Cultural Council of the Historical and Cultural Foundation of Orange County.

It looks unlikely that the Historical and Cultural Foundation of Orange County will receive a California Arts Council grant this year. A council advisory panel recently gave the foundation a 2+ ranking on a scale of 4, and in the past only groups ranked 3 minus or above have received council money. This is the third consecutive year that the foundation, whose exhibits and activities focus on ethnic communities, has received a 2+ ranking.
