Paul Clinton SOUTH SAN FERNANDO -- The whiz-kid animators at Nickelodeon's Burbank studio needed a work atmosphere to match their labor-of-love creativity. They got it in March 1998 when Nickelodeon threw open the doors of its distinctive Pop "Googie" architecture studio.

A huge thank you to the Friends of the Burbank Library, the children's librarians, and all others involved in the summer reading clubs for children at our Burbank public libraries. It clearly took much effort, financial resources and creativity, but it was all deeply appreciated by our family and many of our friends. Our almost-first-grader had to read 15 books for school over the summer, and the library's inspired program with required book reports rewarded by performers, contests and raffles made this process a treat rather than a chore.

Through subtle nuisances, vivid revelation and colorful clarity, that message is celebrated in the collaboration of three local artists who have joined forces to present "Three Artists — One World," the newly opened exhibit at the Burbank Creative Arts Center.
