It lists 23 public murals, 16 sculptures, and 15 galleries and
museums in downtown Davis and on the University of California,
Davis campus. The map was created by the Cultural Arts Action
Committee and the John Natsoulas Center for the Arts; sponsors
include the City of Davis, Davis Downtown, and the Yolo County
Users can follow
the map to all of the artworks—identified by number, title, and

radio waves to transfer data from electronic chips, called RFID
tags (no larger than a grain of rice and capable of storing up
to 32 kilobytes of data) to a "reader" for purposes of tracking,
identifying, and sharing valuable and engaging knowledge and
aesthetic experiences. The tags themselves—which include a
transmitter and receiver for sending and receiving (tagging)
encoded messages—may be embedded in sculptures and accessed by
any NFC or RFID enabled cell phone.
Dr. Kumagai, a
founder of XtremeSignPost Inc., has developed this integrated
system of shared consumer experiences around his company’s U.S.
patent (number 7843334) entitled, "Method to promote and
distribute multimedia content using radio frequency
identification tags." The result is a technology that provides a
novel, interactive method for recording, retrieving, and sharing
experiences within a multimedia context.
March 8th in Davis, CA, at 4:30pm, the Natsoulas Center will
launch its first guided tour based on the new Davis Art Walk
map, in conjunction with the Art of Painting in the 21st
Century Conference. This free tour will be led by more than
10 of the finest painters and muralists in the country
throughout the downtown. Natsoulas plans to coordinate group
tours in the future and is organizing a marketing effort to
boost art-related visitation.
Now in its fourth year,the Art of Painting in the
21st Century is an annual conference geared toward
nurturing dialog on contemporary painting and the shared ideas
that define current trends in the field. Many painters work
alone, an isolated process that deprives the artist of thriving
debate until the work is shown. The conference provides a unique
venue for artists to participate in panel discussions and
breakout groups and to attend lectures by some of the most
exciting visionaries in the field, including F. Scott Hess,
Kelly Detweiler, Glenn Brill, and John Seed. Seven downtown
Davis student exhibitions, curated by the instructors of
Northern California universities and colleges, are meant to
encourage youth participation and community involvement.
The intimate setting allows interaction with top artist in a way
not possible elsewhere. UC Davis, home to artists Roy de Forest,
Roland Peterson, Wayne Thiebaud, and Robert Arneson, was
instrumental in defining a new direction for a uniquely West
Coast style. Nowhere else in the country will the participant be
able to interact and discuss the purity of painting in one
place. Meet face-to-face with distinguished artists you might
only read about; see and hear what makes them the top of their
field. No other conference lets the participants discuss and
comment on modern painting with such inspired knowledge and
The exhibitions begin the afternoon of March 8th, 2013, with
opening receptions at each of the locations in the evening. The
majority of the educational events will take place Saturday,
March 9th, from 10am to 5pm, and are filled with panel
discussions, lectures and breakout groups intended for all
conferees. The conference’s goal is to gather artists from
varying communities, allowing for open interaction between young
students and professionals in the field, fostering the strong
tradition of painting and culture in the Northern California

to Take Precautions this Season
Calif.– Outdoor recreationists should take serious precautions
against cold temperatures and swift currents when in or near
waterthis spring. Despite this year’s
below-normal snowfall, the spring snowmelt can still
result in swift and cold river flows that can create treacherous
conditions for all recreationists – waders, swimmers, paddlers,
boaters, anglers, and even hikers cooling off at the water’s
The utility and state departments cautioned that even though the
water content of California’s mountain snowpack is near 40
percent of normal, there is still a significant amount of water
in the snowpack and it is rapidly melting as mid-spring
temperatures continue to warm. As
warmer weather and longer days accelerate melting snow in
mountainous regions, water temperatures will continue to drop
and flows will continue to rise in waterways and reservoirs,
with some reservoirs spilling and resulting in higher flows
planning outings near mountain streams, rivers and reservoirs
need to be vigilant and take appropriate safety measures,” said
Debbie Powell, director of PG&E’s hydro generation department.

day so always be prepared for a change in conditions.”

Water safety tips:
Know the Water
Sudden immersion in cold water
can stimulate the “gasp reflex” causing an involuntary
inhalation of air or water. It can even trigger cardiac arrest,
temporary paralysis, hypothermia and drowning.
When faced with swift water, even the strongest
swimmers may be easily overwhelmed.
Cold water entering the ear canal
can cause vertigo and disorientation. This may confuse swimmers,
causing them to venture deeper into the water.
Know your limits
Swimming in open water is more
difficult than in a swimming pool – people tire more quickly and
can get into trouble.
Cold water causes impairment leading to fatalities. It reduces
body heat 25
30 times faster than air does at the same
Many unseen obstacles can be lurking below the water’s surface.
Swift water can make these obstacles even more treacherous.
Guided trips for inexperienced paddlers are recommended.
Wear a life
Conditions change quickly in open
water and even the best swimmers can misjudge the water and
their skills when boating or swimming. Wearing a life jacket can
increase survival time.
A life jacket can provide some
thermal protection against the onset of hypothermia and keep you
afloat until someone else can rescue you.
supervise children in and around open bodies of water,
giving them your undivided attention. Appoint a designated
“water watcher,” taking turns with other adults.
Teach children that swimming in open water is
not the same as swimming in a pool: they need to be aware of
uneven surfaces, river currents, ocean undertow and changing

– California’s Department of Boating and
Waterways (DBW) and Coastal Commission’s Boating Clean and Green
Program invite boaters to become Dockwalkers.
Training is free and Dockwalking is a fantastic way to interact
with boaters to help keep California’s marinas, waterways, and
ocean clean and healthy.
“It is important for boaters to not only boat
safely, but to also implement clean boating practices,” stated
DBW’s Acting Director Lucia Becerra. “Safety and protecting the
environment go hand in hand.”
The Dockwalker Program educates boaters to be
safe and environmentally sound while boating in California
through its volunteer Dockwalkers. The volunteers are trained to
conduct face-to-face boater education and distribute boater kits
with educational information while visiting marinas, boat launch
ramps, boat shows and events. Hours
spent training or educating the public qualify as community
Marinas also benefit from the Dockwalker Program.
Involvement in this program provides marinas with the
educational materials and tools to operate a clean boating
facility and minimize water quality impacts.
Partnerships with the Santa Monica Bay
Restoration Foundation, the Keep the Delta Clean Program and
many more organizations have made this program successful. Since
the year 2000, more than 600 volunteers have become Dockwalkers

have on California’s marine environment and boating facilities,
can be significant.

that boaters can use to minimize their impact on the marine
environment. Below are some of these services:

boat owners and watercraft users with general guidelines for
all boaters and a basic checklist for inspecting and
cleaning boats and recreational equipment for aquatic
invasive species. There are also additional inspection and
cleaning checklists for specific types of boats and
Pumpouts. It is
important for boaters to use
sewage pumpouts or
mobile-pumpout services to properly dispose of raw
sewage. In some areas, dumping raw sewage into waterways can
be illegal. Most importantly this practice can be unsafe for
humans and the marine environment. Plan ahead and find out
where your nearest pumpout station is located and how to
properly use it.
Recycling Stations. Besides
making sure that you keep your trash on board, make sure to
recycle monofilament fishing line appropriately.
Monofilament fishing line can entangle and kill wildlife,
and cause boat damage. Fishing line is not biodegradable and
can remain in the environment for more than 600 years. Take
advantage of shore-side facilities to properly dispose of
recycle your fishing line.
a Vessel Properly. Proper
disposal of an unwanted vessel is a vital part of clean and
responsible boating. Because there are several environmental
hazards associated with old vessels, including used oil,
solvents and used batteries, it is important that all vessel
owners properly dispose of their vessels at the appropriate
time. There are
several options for proper vessel disposal: Vessel
