Shortly after he was installed as president of the Art Institute of Southern California last month, John W. Lottes attended a party held by the support group Designing Women. "One of my goals," he told the well-heeled, well-coiffed crowd, "is to get each of you to commit at least as much to the school as you spend on your hair." Lottes related the story with jovial gusto last week, during a wide-ranging conversation in his office.

If 1990 was the year of porn and scorn, perhaps this was the year of cash crises and budget blues in Orange County arts.

The same view, however, can also spark fretful memories. Less than a year ago, firefighters were battling canyon-ravaging flames to keep them from reaching the Art Institute of Southern California, Orange County's only private four-year art college, where Lottes is president.
