Lecture by Theresa Levitt, author of A Short Bright Flash: Augustin Fresnel and the Birth of the Modern Lighthouse
August 3, 2013 at 1pm
At The Museum of Monterey , 5 Custom House Plaza, Monterey, CA 93940
Learn about the fascinating history of Augustin Fresnel, (1788–1827), who shocked the scientific elite with his ingenious breakthrough in the physics of light. The lens he invented was a brilliant feat of engineering that would make lighthouses blaze many times brighter, farther, and more efficiently and would save countless lives from death by shipwreck. But Fresnel had to battle the establishment, his own poor health, and the limited technology of the time to achieve his goal of illuminating the entire French coast. Levitt’s scientific and historical account, rich in anecdote and personality, brings to life the untold story of Augustin Fresnel and his powerful invention that would change the world and shape history.
A q&a and author signing will follow the lecture.
About the Author: Theresa Levitt is an associate professor of history at the University of Mississippi. A graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, she has a master’s degree in history from Iowa State University and a PhD from Harvard University. Levitt is the recipient of the Fulbright and National Science Foundation Awards.
Date: June 22nd, 2013 Time: 2pm to 4pm Beautiful Whale Presentation and Book Signing Event by Bryant Austin
"Photographer and conservationist Bryant Austin's breathtaking photographic project Beautiful Whale ($50.00) is the first of its kind: chronicles his fearless attempts to reach out to whales as fellow sentient beings. Featuring Austin's intimate images--some as detailed as a single haunting eye--that result from encounters based on mutual trust, this work captures the grace and intelligence of these magnificent creatures. Austin spent days at a time submerged, motionless, in the waters of remote spawning grounds waiting for humpback, sperm, and minke whales to seek him out.
As oceanographer Sylvia A. Earle says in her foreword to the book, "As an ambassador from the ocean--and to the ocean--Bryant Austin is not only a source of inspiration. He is cause for hope."
The Shifty Sailors Cruise into Monterey!
Friday, June 28th, 2013
Reception at 6 p.m., concert at 7 p.m.
$5 for MHAA members; $10 for non-members
Fancy a shanty or two? How about some tunes that harken back to the days of lantern-lit lighthouses, wrecks and storms, and fishing and drinking on the high seas and tall ships of yore?
The Museum of Monterey is pleased to announce a very special night of maritime tradition with the Shifty Sailors, an all-male singing group from Whidbey Island, Washington currently on a tour of West Coast cities.
The troupe has traveled extensively in Europe and the United States, sharing their repertoire of songs to ensure maritime communities understand their nautical heritage. Formed in 1993, this is the group's 20th year in existence, and to date they've recorded five popular CDs. "I was smitten," said one reviewer of their performance. "There they were in their striped glory, young and old, barrel-chested and thin, gray of hair and not, bushy-faced and shorn, their energy and humor was contagious, their ebullience enchanting."
Refreshments including wine and beer as well as copies of their CDs will be available for purchase at the event. Don't miss the chance to experience this wonderful evening of nautical nostalgia!
For more on the group and their tour schedule, visit www.shiftysailors.net.

About Mystic Adventures in Big Sur
Love, death, nature, and Hollywood all play a major role in the exciting trilogy, Mystic Adventures in Big Sur, penned by J.W. Winslow, the daughter of screen legend Dick Winslow. Winslow, an internationally-respected artist who hosts a California-based television show about the art world, was inspired in her writings by real-life events and insights to create a dynamic heroine, Dyanna Falconer. Her powerful character is a world-traveling screenwriter who separates lust from love in order to find her soul mate while healing from a near-death accident.
The author writes in the tradition of Carmel’s legendary artists of the 20th century and fashions herself as a Bohemian Chic Renaissance woman. As a writer/artist/poet, Winslow has crafted a trilogy filled with adventure in the fast-paced, cut-throat world of Hollywood and the mystical, nurturing, beautiful escape of Big Sur.
The tale of Jasmine Dogs: Mystic Adventures in Big Sur (Vol. 1) and Jade Beach: Mystic Adventures in Big Sur (Vol. II and III) reveals one of self-discovery amidst tragedy, murder, sexual conquests, and the testing of the bonds of friendship and family. Her sweeping story takes us to Paris, Sicily, Los Angeles, and New York, but it always returns to the magical allure of the California coast.
“Everything is not what it seems in my books,” reveals Winslow. “I tackle some lofty subjects – love and war between the sexes and the eternal struggle for power between men and women; money as an aphrodisiac and tool in business and love; the struggles of single women in the business world; the trappings of fame; the power of sex and the influence of beauty on others; the sweetness of revenge and the glory of redemption, and the surprises of death and the power of loss.”
The books feature many themes:
“The reader comes to appreciate that manipulation and scheming to get your way is dangerous and deadly,” says Winslow.
Winslow’s character-driven, action-filled drama centers around Dyanna, who recovers from the tragic death of her fiancée while being romanced by his best friend (Jacob), a billionaire playboy who bankrolls her films. She is ambushed by a catastrophic accident, plunging 400 feet off a cliff but miraculously is nursed back to health by Native Americans in a secret cave, tended to by a doctor (Hawk) that she secretly longs for. Meanwhile others are plotting against her and Jacob -- not to mention the pesky paparazzi that follow Dyanna – leaving her to live out a soap opera-like life. The story’s climax surprises readers with an ending that spurs a new beginning.
The series of books provides a multi-media experience. A musical score is composed by Monterey native-turned-New Yorker Tom Ayres. The cover art for the books was created by Big Sur artist Erin Lee Gafill, depicting the beautiful vistas of the coast. Photographic images also bring the beauty of Big Sur to the reader. There are links to Web cameras and digital content for further exploration. Winslow’s Fresh Art Green books are printed on recycled components, including the cover and book pages, using soy ink, and linseed binding glue. In addition to an e-book version, there is also an audio book edition read by Winslow, who draws on her acting experience to deliver a passionate rendition.

The Monterey History and Art Association is a proud sponsor of "Coast for Coast" fundraiser for hurricane Sandy victims. at the Museum of Monterey, 5 Custom House Plaza (across from Fisherman's Wharf) in Monterey December 1st from 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm $25 at the door, all proceeds going to the American Red Cross to help with the damages from Sandy. The gigantic storm named Sandy caused an estimated $50 billion in damage as it inundated lower Manhattan with seawater, rearranged the New Jersey shore and Long Island, and tore up neighborhoods in far-flung areas of New York City's outer boroughs. "It's time to consign to history books a storm that reached 900 miles wide, carried winds speeds of more than 90 mph, caused billions of dollars in damage and claimed at least 55 lives...As far as storm strength, Sandy barely missed the record for hurricanes north of Cape Hatteras. Hurricane Gladys in 1977 has the lowest recorded atmospheric pressure at the center of the storm in that region. Gladys' barometric pressure was 27.73; Sandy's near-record low was 27.76. Category 4 hurricane Gladys wasn't nearly as broad as Sandy, however, and remained off the coast." -By Amy Hubbard October 31, 2012, 9:53 a.m. L.A. TIMES But we, the central coast, are here to help as a community with Domingo Rivera from 102.5 KDON's Morning Madhouse leading the way doing what he does best and that's throwing events.

The band performs at least 3 times per week in their beloved hometown of San Francisco. They just released a new album last month entitled Part-Time Sweetheart.
Amy Tan, San Francisco resident and author of The Joy Luck Club, said, "There's a tiny bar in the Mission called Amnesia which is fantastic, especially on Wednesdays when a band called Gaucho plays gypsy jazz à la Django Reinhardt.
