A municipal arts committee on Wednesday approved a project to decorate the new downtown parking garage with solar-powered, illuminated sculptures resembling a Chumash canoe and paddles. Ventura's year-old Art in Public Places Committee, in a 4-0 vote, authorized spending $80,000, one-tenth of its $800,000 of public art funds, on the modern sculpture project designed by husband and wife team Warren Wagner and Blue McRight of Inglewood.

Construction of the parking facility was delayed while a group opposed to the garage sought to get a referendum on the November ballot. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge recently dismissed a lawsuit filed by a group of residents.

Turning aside complaints from several nearby residents, a Los Angeles City Council panel voted Tuesday to allow Paramount Studios to build a parking garage in Hollywood on land zoned for apartments. By a unanimous vote, the Board of Referred Powers overturned a zoning administrator's decision to block construction of the 5-story structure near the studio. The zoning official had ruled that the 953-space garage would "dramatically change" nearby residential areas and hurt property values.

When the Pageant of the Masters opened last summer in Laguna Beach, it took some people 90 minutes to drive eight miles along Laguna Canyon Road to the site of the annual summer extravaganza.
