The latest Lighthouse Digest article on our Point Conception Lighthouse Lens.
The U.S. Coast Guard has officially designated the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum as the recipient of the lens from the Point Conception Lighthouse. United States Coast Guard Curator, Arlyn Danielson, says the SBMM was chosen “because it is the maritime museum in closest proximity to point Conception, and has demonstrated a high level of enthusiasm to interpret the lens from a local, regional, and nation perspective — in relation to its original location at Point Conception. SBMM also has the appropriate staff resources to care for and preserve this lens for future generations.”
This information and more is by Bill Edwards in the September/October issue of Lighthouse Digest.
Local photographers capture the wonderous spirit of the Santa Barbara Region
Thursday night, 167 patrons of the arts arrived at SBMM to view what our local photographers produced for our Juried Small Works Photo Competition. The show was very well received with excitement and applause. We thank all who attended and invite everyone to see the exhibit before it closes on March 3, 2013.
All photos are for Sale with 40 percent of the charitable donation tax deduction proceeds benefiting SBMM’s Educational Programs.
We are proud to introduce Emily Falke as Deputy Director of Santa Barbara Maritime Museum. She began her employment two years ago as Education Director and Curator. She will continue to oversee Education and Exhibits with a new and broader role in the management and growth of SBMM.
