Leadership Los Gatos 2016-17

Leadership Los Gatos is a 10-month program done in conjunction with the Town of Los Gatos to promote participation and a greater understanding of the workings of our Town and its part in the larger community.

The mission of the program is to engage, educate and
develop service-oriented individuals who live and/or work in Los Gatos for leadership roles in community and neighborhood organizations, schools, places of worship and Town government.

The program includes 10 half-day sessions beginning in the fall and ending in early June. There is a tuition fee for the program. Many employers will often sponsor their employees in this community program.

Because Leadership Los Gatos strives to have each incoming class reflect a cross-section of the community, applications will be screened to balance professional and community interests. Class size is limited to ensure quality class sections and full participation.

Exhibit | Cement Prairie: The History and Legacy of the 1952 American Indian Urban Relocation Program

The Museum will be closed Thursday November 24th, December 24th, 25th, 31st and January 1st.  

Open from Nov 4, 2016 - Jun 25, 2017

Cement Prairie is an exhibition that explores the genesis, rollout and impact of the American Indian Relocation Program initiated by the US government in 1952. This significant yet little-known chapter in American Indian migration history will be viewed through a collection of personal stories, ephemera, primary source documents and support programming. The exhibition will focus specifically on the San Jose, California relocatee community and those who followed in their footsteps to the urban communities. The exhibit will examine the program's successes and failures, the rise of Indian activism in the 1960s, and how today's Pan-Indian community has adapted and preserves its native culture in the new "urban rez."

In the 1950s, America's general perceptions of Indians was formed by cultural and historical stereotypes of "the noble savage" wearing a feather headdress, living in a teepee, kidnapping women and children; or the Lone Ranger's stoic sidekick Tonto, characterized in popular literature. While these indelible images permeated American culture, the reality presented a stark contrast. The Indian reservation system became another failed attempt by the U.S. government to solve the "Indian Problem," and as a result, many Indians suffered in poverty and cultures began to erode.

In an attempt to address this problem, the US government created the Indian Urban Relocation Program in 1952 to move Native Americans to major metropolitan cities to improve the community's standard of living. In its first phase, an estimated 100,000 Indians left their reservations and settled in cities across the U.S. Today, over 70 percent of Native Americans live in urban centers, marking a significant migration period that has forever changed the Native American community and culture.o

"We are privileged to have this opportunity to work directly with our local Indian community and offer a forum where they can tell this little-known but important chapter in contemporary Native American history, " said Amy Long, NUMU history curator.

"The San Jose Indian community has long-attempted to create a visual platform to tell this story. We are very excited to partner with NUMU to make this dream a reality, explains exhibition advisor, Al Cross, Mandan/Hidatsa/Arikara, North Dakota.

In conjunction with this exhibition, NUMU is proud to present, Back From Extinction, an exhibition that focuses on the San Francisco Bay Area Native Indian tribe, the Muwekma Ohlone, and its struggle to gain federal recognition and its efforts to counter the myth of its extinction.

Cement Prairie is supported in part by San Jose State University's Anthropology Department, the Muwekma Ohlone tribe, the National Archives, The Bancroft Library, the Indian Health Center, Bay Area photographer, Ilka Hartmann, and notable Bay Area American Indian community members.

Exhibit | Cement Prairie: The History and Legacy of the 1952 American Indian Urban Relocation Program

The Museum will be closed Thursday November 24th, December 24th, 25th, 31st and January 1st.  

Open from Nov 4, 2016 - Jun 25, 2017

Cement Prairie is an exhibition that explores the genesis, rollout and impact of the American Indian Relocation Program initiated by the US government in 1952. This significant yet little-known chapter in American Indian migration history will be viewed through a collection of personal stories, ephemera, primary source documents and support programming. The exhibition will focus specifically on the San Jose, California relocatee community and those who followed in their footsteps to the urban communities. The exhibit will examine the program's successes and failures, the rise of Indian activism in the 1960s, and how today's Pan-Indian community has adapted and preserves its native culture in the new "urban rez."

In the 1950s, America's general perceptions of Indians was formed by cultural and historical stereotypes of "the noble savage" wearing a feather headdress, living in a teepee, kidnapping women and children; or the Lone Ranger's stoic sidekick Tonto, characterized in popular literature. While these indelible images permeated American culture, the reality presented a stark contrast. The Indian reservation system became another failed attempt by the U.S. government to solve the "Indian Problem," and as a result, many Indians suffered in poverty and cultures began to erode.

In an attempt to address this problem, the US government created the Indian Urban Relocation Program in 1952 to move Native Americans to major metropolitan cities to improve the community's standard of living.

"We are privileged to have this opportunity to work directly with our local Indian community and offer a forum where they can tell this little-known but important chapter in contemporary Native American history, " said Amy Long, NUMU history curator.

"The San Jose Indian community has long-attempted to create a visual platform to tell this story. We are very excited to partner with NUMU to make this dream a reality, explains exhibition advisor, Al Cross, Mandan/Hidatsa/Arikara, North Dakota.

In conjunction with this exhibition, NUMU is proud to present, Back From Extinction, an exhibition that focuses on the San Francisco Bay Area Native Indian tribe, the Muwekma Ohlone, and its struggle to gain federal recognition and its efforts to counter the myth of its extinction.

Cement Prairie is supported in part by San Jose State University's Anthropology Department, the Muwekma Ohlone tribe, the National Archives, The Bancroft Library, the Indian Health Center, Bay Area photographer, Ilka Hartmann, and notable Bay Area American Indian community members.

Exhibit | Cement Prairie: The History and Legacy of the 1952 American Indian Urban Relocation Program

The Museum will be closed Thursday November 24th, December 24th, 25th, 31st and January 1st.  

Open from Nov 4, 2016 - Jun 25, 2017

Cement Prairie is an exhibition that explores the genesis, rollout and impact of the American Indian Relocation Program initiated by the US government in 1952. This significant yet little-known chapter in American Indian migration history will be viewed through a collection of personal stories, ephemera, primary source documents and support programming. The exhibition will focus specifically on the San Jose, California relocatee community and those who followed in their footsteps to the urban communities. The exhibit will examine the program's successes and failures, the rise of Indian activism in the 1960s, and how today's Pan-Indian community has adapted and preserves its native culture in the new "urban rez."

In the 1950s, America's general perceptions of Indians was formed by cultural and historical stereotypes of "the noble savage" wearing a feather headdress, living in a teepee, kidnapping women and children; or the Lone Ranger's stoic sidekick Tonto, characterized in popular literature. While these indelible images permeated American culture, the reality presented a stark contrast. The Indian reservation system became another failed attempt by the U.S. government to solve the "Indian Problem," and as a result, many Indians suffered in poverty and cultures began to erode.

In an attempt to address this problem, the US government created the Indian Urban Relocation Program in 1952 to move Native Americans to major metropolitan cities to improve the community's standard of living. In its first phase, an estimated 100,000 Indians left their reservations and settled in cities across the U.S. Today, over 70 percent of Native Americans live in urban centers, marking a significant migration period that has forever changed the Native American community and culture.o

Neil Simon's "Fools"

The JCC's Theatre Chevruta is proud to present Fools, by Neil Simon. 

Leon Tolchinsky is ecstatic. He's landed a terrific teaching job in an idyllic Russian hamlet. When he arrives he finds people sweeping dust from the stoops back into their houses and people milking upside down to get more cream. The town has been cursed with Chronic Stupidity for 200 years and Leon's job is to break the curse. No one tells him that if he stays over 24 hours and fails to break the curse, he too becomes Stupid. But, he has fallen in love with a girl so Stupid that she has only recently learned how to sit down.

Show dates are Saturday, April 22nd at 7:00pm and Sunday, April 23rd at 2:00pm. Each show is followed by a post-show talkback.

Tickets: General admission $20, JCC members $15, students/seniors $10. JCC members, purchase tickets online in advance and your ticket is only $10. A link to purchase tickets online will be available on this website in 2017.

Theatre Chevruta is the JCC's Jewish readers theatre program--staged readings of important, entertaining, and often unfamiliar offerings of Jewish theatre.  A staged reading is a fully cast, fully rehearsed presentation of a play with scripts in hand. Particularly popular in the development of new works and the revisiting of obscure works, the absence of lighting, sets, and costumes allows the focus to be on the actors and the words.

For more information, contact the JCC's Center for Jewish Life & Learning at [email protected] or 408.357.7492.

 


All Cultural Arts programs at the APJCC are made possible, in part, by generous contributions from Sylvia & Leonard Metz, Doris & Rick Davis, and Bill Lister.
 
The APJCC is proud to be a part of the Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood, co-funded by the Koret Foundation and the Taube Foundation for Jewish Life & Culture, and supported further by the Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley and other generous supporters.

Abstracts From Life: Exploring the Bay Area Figurative Movement

Open March 24, 2017 - September 10, 2107
New Museum Los Gatos presents Abstracts From Life, an exhibition that explores the Bay Area Figurative movement, past and present.

Artists have studied the human figure throughout the ages. One regional expression of this practice is Bay Area Figurative, an art movement that emerged from California mid-20th century abstraction and continues as an enduring tradition. This group exhibition investigates the genesis of the Bay Area Figurative movement and features several generations of artists, including contemporary artists working locally and internationally.

The exhibition includes selections from private collections, galleries, the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation, and the Oliveira Administrative Trust. Featured paintings, drawings and sculpture include works by: Michael Azgour, Joan Brown, Suhas Bhujbal, Linda Christensen, Richard Diebenkorn, Dennis Hare, Mitchell Johnson, Brigitte McReynolds, Nathan Oliveira, Joan Savo, Jennifer Pochinski, William Rushton, Terry St. John and James Weeks. Interactive activities that allow visitors to create their own figures will also be presented in the exhibition gallery.

“In the spirit of NUMU’s mission to tell stories of the Bay Area that reach the greater community and beyond in scope, innovation and interest, this exhibition highlights an important art movement that helped distinguish our region.” Says art curator, Marianne McGrath. “The locally connected and globally relevant artists in the exhibition have made significant contributions to art history and contemporary art.”

*Members Reception for Exhibition Opening: Abstracts From Life
Thursday April 13, 2017 | 6:00pm - 8:00pm
This evening is an opportunity for NUMU members to gather and celebrate with other NUMU supporters, exhibition sponsors, exhibiting artists and NUMU curators. A no-host bar will available at the museum.

Throughout the duration of the exhibition, NUMU will present a variety of related programs, including music performances, art talks, yoga and movement experiences.

One regional expression of this practice is Bay Area Figurative, an art movement that emerged from California mid-20th century abstraction and continues as an enduring tradition. This group exhibition investigates the genesis of the Bay Area Figurative movement and features several generations of artists, including contemporary artists working locally and internationally.

The exhibition includes selections from private collections, galleries, the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation, and the Oliveira Administrative Trust. Featured paintings, drawings and sculpture include works by: Michael Azgour, Joan Brown, Suhas Bhujbal, Linda Christensen, Richard Diebenkorn, Dennis Hare, Mitchell Johnson, Brigitte McReynolds, Nathan Oliveira, Joan Savo, Jennifer Pochinski, William Rushton, Terry St. John and James Weeks. Interactive activities that allow visitors to create their own figures will also be presented in the exhibition gallery.

“In the spirit of NUMU’s mission to tell stories of the Bay Area that reach the greater community and beyond in scope, innovation and interest, this exhibition highlights an important art movement that helped distinguish our region.” Says art curator, Marianne McGrath. “The locally connected and globally relevant artists in the exhibition have made significant contributions to art history and contemporary art.”

New Museum Los Gatos presents Abstracts From Life, an exhibition that explores the Bay Area Figurative movement, past and present.

Artists have studied the human figure throughout the ages. One regional expression of this practice is Bay Area Figurative, an art movement that emerged from California mid-20th century abstraction and continues as an enduring tradition. This group exhibition investigates the genesis of the Bay Area Figurative movement and features several generations of artists, including contemporary artists working locally and internationally.

The exhibition includes selections from private collections, galleries, the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation, and the Oliveira Administrative Trust. Featured paintings, drawings and sculpture include works by: Michael Azgour, Joan Brown, Suhas Bhujbal, Linda Christensen, Richard Diebenkorn, Dennis Hare, Mitchell Johnson, Brigitte McReynolds, Nathan Oliveira, Joan Savo, Jennifer Pochinski, William Rushton, Terry St. John and James Weeks. Interactive activities that allow visitors to create their own figures will also be presented in the exhibition gallery.

“In the spirit of NUMU’s mission to tell stories of the Bay Area that reach the greater community and beyond in scope, innovation and interest, this exhibition highlights an important art movement that helped distinguish our region.” Says art curator, Marianne McGrath. “The locally connected and globally relevant artists in the exhibition have made significant contributions to art history and contemporary art.”

Open March 24, 2017 - September 10, 2107
New Museum Los Gatos presents Abstracts From Life, an exhibition that explores the Bay Area Figurative movement, past and present.

Artists have studied the human figure throughout the ages. One regional expression of this practice is Bay Area Figurative, an art movement that emerged from California mid-20th century abstraction and continues as an enduring tradition. This group exhibition investigates the genesis of the Bay Area Figurative movement and features several generations of artists, including contemporary artists working locally and internationally.

The exhibition includes selections from private collections, galleries, the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation, and the Oliveira Administrative Trust. Featured paintings, drawings and sculpture include works by: Michael Azgour, Joan Brown, Suhas Bhujbal, Linda Christensen, Richard Diebenkorn, Dennis Hare, Mitchell Johnson, Brigitte McReynolds, Nathan Oliveira, Joan Savo, Jennifer Pochinski, William Rushton, Terry St. John and James Weeks. Interactive activities that allow visitors to create their own figures will also be presented in the exhibition gallery.

“In the spirit of NUMU’s mission to tell stories of the Bay Area that reach the greater community and beyond in scope, innovation and interest, this exhibition highlights an important art movement that helped distinguish our region.” Says art curator, Marianne McGrath. “The locally connected and globally relevant artists in the exhibition have made significant contributions to art history and contemporary art.”

*Members Reception for Exhibition Opening: Abstracts From Life
Thursday April 13, 2017 | 6:00pm - 8:00pm
This evening is an opportunity for NUMU members to gather and celebrate with other NUMU supporters, exhibition sponsors, exhibiting artists and NUMU curators. A no-host bar will available at the museum.

Throughout the duration of the exhibition, NUMU will present a variety of related programs, including music performances, art talks, yoga and movement experiences.

Abstracts From Life: Bay Area Figurative Past and Present is generously supported by NUMU Curators’ Circle Members, the Daane Family. NUMU also gratefully acknowledges support from its many donors and members.

NUMU is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization tax ID 94-1619601

The 44th Cat’s Hill Bicycle Race, sponsored by the non-profit Los Gatos Bicycle Racing Club and Mikes Bikes, will be held Saturday April 29 in the Almond Grove area of Los Gatos.  The mile-long course starts at Tait and Nicholson Avenues near Mikes Bikes, rounds to Bean, Massol, then features a 23% grade up Nicholson Avenue, goes around Bachman Park, followed by a fast downhill (~50 mph!) and right turn, back to the start/finish on Tait Avenue.  Races for various levels and ages start at 9:20 am and finish after 6:00 pm.  Some racers climb up Nicholson as many as 30 times during their race.  The Cat’s Hill Classic was started in 1974 by 1960 US Olympic competitor and Los Gatos teacher Bob Tetzlaff with his wife Lorine who dubbed Nicholson Avenue “Cat’s Hill”, a designation that remains till this day.  For more information, go to www.catshill.org


A Kid’s Fun Ride will take place at 12:30 PM.  The ride will be divided into two age groups: ages 6 and younger, and ages 7 through 9 years.  The kids will get the thrill of crossing the official finish line on Tait and Nicholson Avenues, with applause and official race announcements.  All participants will receive medals in this fun race.

Mimouna: Morrocan Post-Passover Celebration

Join us for an afternoon filled with music and sweets! Admission is $8 (JCC members $5).

Mimouna is a Moroccan-Jewish post-Passover festival that takes place immediately after the close of the Passover holiday at sundown. Mimouna is a celebration of community, friendship, and hospitality and also commemorates the miracle that G-d granted the Jews at the "Red Sea" ("Yam Suf" in Hebrew) when they were fleeing the Egyptian army. Moroccan-Jewish families invite relatives and friends and other guests over to each other's houses and there is a sweet table covered in a white tablecloth that is set up in each house that serves as the centerpiece for the Mimouna festival.

This event is organized in partnership with JIMENA
JIMENA aims to achieve universal recognition for the heritage and history of the 850,000 indigenous Jewish refugees from the Middle East and North Africa. Our programs aim to ensure that the accurate history of Mizrahi and Sephardic Jews is incorporated into mainstream Jewish and Middle Eastern narratives in order to create balance in attitudes, narratives, and discourse about Middle Eastern refugees and the modern Jewish experience.

The Time of the Month Project

The Time of the Month Project is an evening to give and raise awareness of Next Door Solutions for Domestic Violence & Bill Wilson Center.
 
When we think of helping the homeless, we often think of donating food, clothing, and blankets to homeless service organizations. However, we don't often think of the needs women face each month and the need for feminine hygiene- pads and tampons. Los Gatos' very own Skin Maven will be hosting and sponsoring a community-based event to educate our community about the needs women and teens face related to feminine hygiene. Sanitary pads and tampons are in crucial demand. A continual supply is necessary for them to have what they need when they need it. The goal is to rally our community to join forces and support marginalized women and teens. 
 
Many Los Gatos Chamber members have committed to donating and participating in this event: Rootstock Wine Bar, Loma Brewery, Bare Wax Lounge & French Theft Lingerie. Local restaurants and wine & beer houses have provided appetizers and drinks. Local stores have donated prizes for a raffle. Attendees will receive raffle tickets for supplies they bring, and another ticket if they bring a friend. These tickets will be drawn to win raffle prize baskets that feature the local businesses. 
 
What to bring with you Thursday April 27th:  Friends and family and a stockpiles of sanitary pads, tampons with strings, Thinx and feminine wipes.  All supplies will be donated to Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence and The Bill Wilson Center.
