While the creation of art - a painting, statue, song, performance or literary work - is a gratifying accomplishment for the creator, it is only by means of sharing one's work with others that art receives the breath and life it needs to stimulate emotions, evoke questions, provide understanding, encourage positive change and inspire hope. Betsy Lueke was born in Globe, Arizona on August 17, 1919. When she took her final breath in Burbank on July 31, 2011, she passed with the gratifying knowledge that she had made great strides in giving artists and their creations that needed breath of life to thrive and be shared to impact the lives of Burbankers for generations to come.

Midge Boardman, Enjoy! BURBANK -- Wabisabi is the philosophy of Claude Hulce, retiring executive director of the Creative Arts Center in Burbank. He translates this Japanese word to "Everybody is not perfect; there is beauty in imperfection." In the ceramics class he teaches at the center, a sign cautions students not to seek perfection in people or in pots because they will miss out knowing a lot of good people and a lot of nice pots. For his warmth and friendliness, his creativity and humor, Hulce himself will be sorely missed.
