To all the supporters of the Anaheim Performing Arts Center Foundation,

It appears that the City of Anaheim and the Los Angeles Angels have reached a tentative agreement, which if ratified by the city council, would keep the Angels in Anaheim for another 30 years and would allow the Angels to purchase the 133 acres surrounding the stadium including the 12 acres on which we hope to build our center.

The city council majority has vowed they would not approve an agreement with the Angels if it does not include the construction of a performing arts center by the Anaheim Preforming Arts Center Foundation.

We realize it is a busy time of year but after 12 years of diligence and determination, the time has come for our voice to be heard once again. We must be there in force to remind the council that there should not be any approval unless and until the Performing Arts Center is included in the final agreement.

It is imperative that all of us be present at the city council meeting on Friday, December 20th at 2:00pm at city hall when the tentative agreement comes up for approval by the council. The future of the Anaheim Performing Arts Center Foundation is at stake!!!!

We look forward to seeing you there and thank you for all of your years of support.

Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at The Knohl Collection!!!

The Knohl Collection and the International ARC Salon are pleased to announce the winners of The 2014/2015 Knohl Collection Award for History or Literature Inspired Art. With approximately 2,500 entries by over 1,050 extremely talented artists, the judges had a very difficult time choosing the winners.

This year the $5,000 prize for The Knohl Collection Award for History or Literature Inspired Art was equally divided between two works: Know Not Thy Pending Fate by Christina Grace Mastrangelo and The Ship of Fools by Carl Dobsky.

When asked about how history or literature inspired their work, both artists had very insightful answers. Christina Grace Mastrangelo replied: "It evolved after years of studying humanist literature, and the personal effect of love and loss through death and heartbreak. When I first moved to Florence in 2006, I was struck by the intensity of the history of the city. It lead me to study the great minds of Florentine history: I read about Michelangelo's struggles with his work and with God; I read about Leonardo's ideas and inventions and discovered the great minds of Boccaccio, Machiavelli, and Dante. After living there only a short time, the idea for this work came to me in a dream. The scene was a group of figures stretching up into the sky, away from darkness and pain, and up into the light, towards serenity, harmony and connectedness. It was only later that I made the connection to Dante's Divine Comedy, as the vision changed to include the unknown realm of the afterlife and an internal search for an answer." Carl Dobsky, artist of The Ship of Fools, said: "The theme for the work has been around for a long time with some crediting it as beginning in the time of Plato. It kind of comes into it's own in the 15th century with a book by Sebastian Brant titled The Ship of Fools which became the inspiration for works by the likes of Hieronymous Bosch and others. It usually depicts a boat without a pilot filled with deranged people who are oblivious to their situation. In some cases, it has been used as social commentary. I wanted to take these elements but give the theme a personal interpretation."

Alexander the Great Receiving the Family of Darius III - 331 BC, by François-Xavier Fabre (French 1766 – 1837) illustrates Alexander the Great and his friend Hephaestion approaching the family of Darius III, the defeated Persian Emperor, after Alexander's victory in the decisive Battle of Issus. Misled by Hephaestion's splendor and stature, Darius' mother offers Hephaestion the reverence and respect due the victorious monarch. Alexander magnanimously steps forward and forgives the family for their mistake. - www.theknohlcollection.com
