With respect to the possibility of a Malibu Performing Arts Center, should such a thing become a reality, I would propose the city consider naming it for the late Ruth White. A performing arts center was a long-held passion for Ruth, who made it the centerpiece of her years as president of the Malibu Arts Foundation, of which I was proud to be a member. Ruth was an institution in Malibu, beloved by all, and her pioneering achievements in the field of electronic music represent precisely the spirit which any local performing arts center should inspire in this community. Ruth gave Malibu more than it could ever repay. Naming a performing arts center in her honor would be a fitting tribute.
