La Jolla Playhouse Honors the Jacobs' Family

The La Jolla Playhouse took a delightful new path for its annual Gala. Instead of a Dracula theme like one year, the 80’s another and more, the March 27th, 2010 event honored alumni artists and friends of the Playhouse. And when you think La Jolla Playhouse, it’s hard to not think of the tremendous support by Joan and Irwin Jacobs, and their family.

As such Joan and Irwin Jacobs were honored along with their family. A lot of family. Including grand-daughter Sara who flew in from faraway Ghana, Africa.  It was a terrific surprise for her grand-parents.

Also there were Debby Jacobs and Deni Jacobs, the pretty duo were the gala chairs, and their respective husbands Hal Jacobs and Jeff Jacobs. They were joined by Stacy and Paul Jacobs, Jerri-Ann and Gary Jacobs, Adam Jacobs, Beth Jacobs, Mara Jacobs, Conner Jacobs and Lindsey Jacobs.

Among the other special guests there and or honored in absentia were actor Lou Diamond Phillips, he did the opening performance, Jefferson Mays, Susan Hilferty, Neil Patrick Harris, Charlayne Woodward, and a nostalgic favorite, Des McAnuff, the former Artistic Director for the La Jolla Playhouse whose stewardship brought in over 300 awards for the Playhouse. These include the four Tony Award winning Jersey Boys, the Tony Award winning Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays, and the seven Tony Awards winning big River.  Des, also the La Jolla Playhouse Director Emeritus, is a member of the Red Dirt Band which performed for the gala. They are known as the 'officially, unofficial band of the La Jolla Playhouse.'

Style Awards 2010 Honors Burl Stiff

The Fashion Group International held its 10th Annual Style Awards March 26th, 2010 at the Westin Gaslamp Quarter.

Among the many in attendance were 'Friends of Burl Stiff' Jeanne Jones and Don Breitenberg, Sheri and Stuart Jamieson, David Copley, Judith Harris and Colette and Ivor Royston. Burl was a deserved honoree that night not only for all of his coverage of society events, but also for his fashionable flavor he added to his UT columns. He also has been known to do some rather beautiful design work himself, one of which was worn by patron Jeanne Jones.

'Timken Museum Visited by 'Rembrandt!'

On April 15th, 2010 the Timken Museum kicked off an extraordinary exhibition of 14 prints by Rembrandt Van Rijn loaned by Karen and Bob Hoehn.

The evening started with cocktails and unique viewing of the 14 Rembrandt prints on exhibit.Christ Preaching (Le Petite Tombe) of about 1652, Christ at Emmaus of 1654, and two of his greatest prints, the Ecce Homo of 1655 and the Three Crosses of about 1660’ are noted by the Timken Museum as being some of the most well known by Rembrandt.

Aside from record breaking attendance, there have been a series of special evenings in conjunction with the exhibition. One a thousand dollar a plated ‘Dinner with Rembrandt, special guest lectures such as the one with Sir Christopher White, he’s the former director of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, and on this particular evening themed Art in the Evening, a conversation between Bob Hoehn, collector and art connoisseur, and John Wilson, the Timken’s executive director.

“This evening’s event was exceptional” said Gary Meads who is also Board President at the Timken. “To personally view Rembrandt’s work of any kind in San Diego is a rarity.  In fact, the Timken is the only San Diego museum fortunate enough to have a Rembrandt painting in its permanent collection.  But to experience this collection of extraordinary Rembrandt prints and hear first hand from the collector, Bob Hoehn, was a special treat.”
