Angered over efforts to move Laguna Beach's Festival of the Arts to San Clemente, about 50 regular exhibitors are demanding the recall of seven of the 68-year-old festival's eight elected board members. Exhibitors must gather 110 signatures, or 5% of the festival's 2,200 voting members, to require the festival board to hold a recall election meeting, said Bruce Rasner, an exhibitor and an attorney. But rather than go through a recall effort, board members should just step down, the artists said.

San Clemente's City Council on Wednesday approved a concept that officials hope will lure away Laguna Beach's popular Festival of Arts. The proposal would bring the festival to a 20-acre site in the Talega development in east San Clemente at a facility to be completed by May 2003. The 40-year lease would give the festival three additional five-year options that could keep it in San Clemente past 2050.

Arrivederci, Da Vinci. Hello, Dali. This year, the Pageant of the Masters' director is shelving "The Last Supper," which has closed the show for all but one of its 67 seasons, and ending with "The Sacrament of the Last Supper" (1955) by surrealist painter Salvador Dali. After experimenting with contemporary music and special effects in recent editions of the Laguna Beach production, director Diane Challis Davy is pushing further out on her artistic limb.

A Superior Court judge denied a request Wednesday from Festival of Arts members to immediately bar the board from moving the famed summer institution to San Clemente. The court will decide April 14 whether the festival board has the right to negotiate a lease with San Clemente. "I'm delighted," said festival President Sherri M. Butterfield. "Our only obligation is to support the arts in Laguna Beach and have our headquarters in Orange County.

Though an acrimonious debate continues, the Festival of Arts has paid Laguna Beach the full amount it owes in rent this year for its site. Festival officials decided Monday to avoid eviction proceedings by paying the remaining $520,184 of the nonprofit organization's rent, due Jan. 1. "I think it is very important that we have a place to continue our work," said Festival President Sherri Butterfield. "We couldn't afford a place, and we might be out on the streets."
