Ojai, California

school in Ojai is still named Nordhoff High School. The public junior high school, named "Matilija", formerly served as Nordhoff Union High School and still features large tiles with the initials "NUHS" on the steps of the athletic field. Libbey The main turning point in the development of the city was the coming of Edward Libbey, early owner of the Libbey Glass Company. He saw the valley and fell in love, thinking up many plans for expansion and beautification of the existing rustic town. A fire destroyed much of the original western-style downtown Nordhoff—Ojai in 1917. Afterwards Libbey helped design, finance, and build a new downtown more in line with the then contemporary taste for Spanish Colonial Revival style architecture (Spanish Colonial Revival architecture). The projects included a Spanish-style arcade along the main street, a bell-tower reminiscent of the famous campanile of the Basilica Menor de San Francisco de Asis in Havana, and a pergola opposite the arcade. To thank Libbey for his gifts to the town, the citizens proposed a celebration to take place on March 2 of each year. Libbey declined their offer to call it "Libbey Day", and instead suggested "Ojai Day". The celebration still takes place each year in October. The arcade and bell tower still stand, and have come to serve as symbols of the city and the surrounding valley. Libbey's pergola was destroyed in 1971, after being damaged in an explosion. It was rebuilt in the early 2000s to complete the architectural continuity of the downtown area. The town completed a new park, Cluff Vista Park, in 2002, which contains several small themed regions of California native plants (List of California native plants). Geography Ojai is located at at Hines Peak (Hines Peak (California)), about six miles north of Thomas Aquinas College. Snow frequently falls on the high peaks during winter.

right JQH Arena Southeast of Meyer Library is the Robert W. Plaster Sports Complex (Plaster Sports Complex). Originally built in 1930, the athletic field became the stadium in 1941 and was known for many years as Briggs Stadium in honor of Coach A. W. Briggs, longtime head of Missouri State's athletic department. The facility was renamed after a major expansion and renovation in the 1980s that included installation of an artificial playing surface, an all-weather track, a second level of seating, twelve racquetball courts, men's and women's locker rooms, five classrooms, and a fitness center. Immediately north of Plaster Sports Complex is McDonald Arena, built by WPA (Works Progress Administration) labor in 1940. It served as the university's central indoor arena until construction of the John Q. Hammons Student Center on the campus' north-west edge in 1976. That venue was in turn replaced as the primary indoor sporting venue by construction of the adjacent 11,000-seat JQH Arena in 2008. thumb left Thomas Hart Benton (painter) Thomas Hart Benton (Image:People-of-Chilmark-Benton-1920-lrg.jpg), ''People of Chilmark (Figure Composition),'' 1920, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC. When the Great Depression hit, president Roosevelt’s (Franklin D Roosevelt) New Deal created several public arts programs. The purpose of the programs was to give work to artists and decorate public buildings, usually with a national theme. The first of these projects, the Public Works of Art Project (PWAP), was created after successful lobbying by the unemployed artists of the Artists' Union. The PWAP lasted less than one year, and produced nearly 15,000 works of art. It was followed by the Federal Art Project of the Works Progress Administration (FAP WPA) in 1935, which funded some of the most well-known American artists (List of American artists). Several separate and related movements began and developed during the Great Depression including American scene painting, Regionalism (Regionalism (art)), and Social Realism. Thomas Hart Benton (Thomas Hart Benton (painter)), John Steuart Curry, Grant Wood, Ben Shahn, Joseph Stella, Reginald Marsh (Reginald Marsh (artist)), Isaac Soyer, Raphael Soyer, and Jack Levine were some of the best known artists.
