Saying that "12 years is enough," and offering no specific plans, Adolfo V. Nodal announced Wednesday that he will resign his post as general manager of the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department, stepping down at the end of December. Nodal, 50, a Cuban immigrant raised in Miami, is perhaps best known to the arts community as the architect of 1991's controversial "Cultural Masterplan," a 182-page document encouraging social responsibility on the part of artists.

I visited Spain with my 94-year-old mother and my sister. We started in Madrid, then went to Frank Gehry's Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, through Galicia and back to Madrid. We went to a couple of flamenco shows, had fabulous food at a Basque restaurant, took a lot of naps and stayed out until 3 or 4 a.m. every day. Spain has shed its backward ways. It's a very modern place. * DISCOVERY: The ancient Spanish city of Burgos, where my grandfather is from, and the beautiful seaport town of La Coruna.

The Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department has scheduled a workshop today to provide information on a $17,000 grant that is available for art programs in the harbor area.

The creative forces behind the L.A. premiere of Pearl Cleage's "Blues for an Alabama Sky," opening Saturday at downtown's Los Angeles Theatre Center (LATC), knew that entering L.A.'s challenging theater scene was, at some point, going to require jumping off a very steep cliff.

Now that the $3-million facility is under construction, residents have been trying to figure out how the site should be managed. The Friends of Banning Landing recently accepted an offer from the Cultural Affairs Department to run the center.

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.
