4:00 PM Art: Garden Tapestries For the second year, the tapestries from the Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre in Egypt will be on display. The Egyptian artists vividly celebrate the flowers of the desert, villages, and Nile River in their work.

These tapestries are the legacy of an "experiment in creativity" begun in 1952 by leading Egyptian architect Ramses Wissa Wassef. He was convinced that everyone is born with artistic gifts but that these develop only through practicing a craft from early childhood. To test his theory, Wissa Wassef installed looms in a workshop in the village of Harrania, six miles from Cairo, and invited village children to learn to weave. When they had grasped the basic technique he encouraged them to depict whatever they liked, laying down only three rules: No copying, no preliminary designs, and no adult interference or criticism. His experiment rapidly demonstrated that any child is able to create works of staggering beauty and skill, confirming that innate creativity can grow with a child into adolescence and adulthood.

Since Ramses' death in 1974, his widow Sophie and daughters Suzanne and Yoanna have expanded the experiment. Under their guidance several further generations of children have now mastered weaving. Currently, 30 adult wool and cotton weavers are actively working at the Art Centre in Egypt. This project has a strong impact on the community: it has transformed the lives of the villagers, bringing prosperity, education, better health, self-respect and satisfaction to all, as well as establishing high status and equality for the women. Fifteen wool tapestries and twenty cotton weavings will be on display in the Ecke Building at the San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas. Wall signs, books, and a short documentary will present the making of the tapestries. An exploration of founder Ramses Wissa Wassef's aspirations will also be a part of this educational and artistic display. All the tapestries are unique and are woven by individual artists, all of whom have worked for close to four months on each tapestry. The Egyptian sheep wool is colored with traditional vegetable dyes that are planted in the gardens of the art centre in Giza. Runs through March 31.

Admission/Cost: $14

7:30 PM Book Signing: We are the Lucky Ones It is the spring of 1939 and three generations of the Kurc family are doing their best to live normal lives, even as the shadow of war grows closer. The talk around the family Seder table is of new babies and budding romance, not of the increasing hardships threatening Jews in their hometown of Radom, Poland. But soon the horrors overtaking Europe will become inescapable and the Kurcs will be flung to the far corners of the world, each desperately trying to navigate his or her own path to safety.

As one sibling is forced into exile, another attempts to flee the continent, while others struggle to escape certain death, either by working grueling hours on empty stomachs in the factories of the ghetto or by hiding as gentiles in plain sight. Driven by an unwavering will to survive and by the fear that they may never see one another again, the Kurcs must rely on hope, ingenuity, and inner strength to persevere.
