Santa Rosa council says media center too important to lose

Finding that the voice that the Community Media Center of the North Bay gives to the public is too important to risk losing, the Santa Rosa council on Tuesday rejected a plan to cut off its funding.

Instead, the City Council wants its staff to bring back a recommendation in a month on how the media center and the public access it provides might survive.

But is was also clear that the council didn't want the city of Santa Rosa, which provides more than 80 percent of the media center's funding, to continue to shoulder the load alone.

"Virtual Fiesta" Gallery Exhibit

The Community Media Center of Marin is proud to present its first virtual gallery exhibit, "Virtual Fiesta," which is intended to bring awareness to California Coastal Cleanup 2020.

Artists Richard Lang and Judith Selby Lang have rambled the tideline of Kehoe Beach, Point Reyes National Seashore for more than 20 years.  After hundreds of visits along 1000 meters, they have gathered plastic debris washing out of the Pacific Ocean and collected more than two tons of material.

By “curating” these pieces of plastic, the collaborative team has fashioned it into works of art that matter-of-factly represent, with minimal artifice, the material as it is. The viewer is often surprised that this colorful stuff is the thermoplastic junk of our throwaway culture.
