Some people will chat obligingly about all sorts of things in a polite and careful way. But when their face lights up and their words grow animated, you know the conversation has settled on something close to the heart. Deep into an interview at a Long Beach cafe, Lucinda Barnes, 38, Newport Harbor Art Museum's new associate curator, suddenly recalled a recent trip to New York.

The Newport Harbor Art Museum has come up with a finalist in its 13-month search for a new director. The museum board will vote tonight on the candidate, who has not been named. The director's job is especially crucial as the museum's $50-million campaign to construct and endow a new building has been stalled since Kevin Consey left the post in November, 1989. Without staff leadership, the project has attracted only $10 million in cash and pledges.

This year, Spain hosts the Olympic Games at Barcelona and celebrates the 500th anniversary of Columbus' first voyage to the Americas. It looks like a country on the brink of a blossoming.

Using books as his principal material, Buzz Spector makes sculpture that is quiet, unassuming and ruminative in the extreme. The experience of looking at a small exhibition of his work at the Newport Harbor Art Museum through March 18 is akin to the half-searching, half-idle experience of rummaging through a neighborhood bookstore--but with a telling difference. Carved, torn, stacked, boxed, framed, painted over and, in a few cases, converted into pedestals, his books cannot be read.

For two months, artist Karen Kitchel braved fuel fumes, a scaffolding that shook with speeding cars and earthquakes, and the noise of rush-hour traffic to paint a mural of an idyllic setting that might be a commuter's dream of escape. The result is a 22x100-foot mural of a peaceful landscape on the wall of the northbound Hollywood Freeway at the Barham Boulevard exit. The life-sized depiction of a huge bluish/purple river surrounded by orange and red trees is entitled "Urban Eden."
