Tucked away in the foothills of Rancho Cucamonga is a beautiful and serene 5.5 acre garden, filled intermittently with site-specific outdoor sculptures. With materials such as ceramic, metal, wood, stone- whimsical and minimalist forms respond to surrounding horticulture and landscape. This exhibition called “Sculpture in the Garden” was my first introduction to Sam and Alfreda Maloof Foundation for Arts and Crafts, and although this is now over, there is still plenty else to absorb. On view until October 30th are two small exhibitions- “Betty Davenport Ford: Capturing the Animal Spirit” and “Craft at Play” as well as guided tours of the Maloof residence on Thursdays and Saturdays.

The location of Sam Maloof’s residence and woodworking studio also houses the Sam and Alfreda Maloof Foundation for Arts and Crafts, an organization which serves to preserve the artist’s legacy and benefactory work. For those unfamiliar with Sam Maloof, he was an expert craftsman celebrated for his beautiful and functional wood furniture. He meticulously handcrafted all his work, refusing to outsource or mass produce his popular designs. In an age when the handmade became increasingly rare, Sam championed the arts and crafts movement and became the first craftsman to be awarded the MacArthur Fellowship. Both him and his wife Alfreda were lifetime patrons of the arts, and it is in this spirit of fostering art and crafts that The Maloof Foundation continues exhibitions such as the three aforementioned.

A disobedient dog, an angry owner, and a young girl with a magical ability to right wrongs–that is the opening of The Magic Finger. From the beginning there is a sense that what you are watching is important. Through the layers of humor, the audience is continuously asked the questions, “What is fair?” and “Who gets to decide?” To be sure, they are questions that sometimes make us uncomfortable, but children’s author Roald Dahl knew they needed to be asked.

If you are not familiar with the work of Roald Dahl, I recommend your remedy that immediately. It’s for your own good, I promise. Children’s literature often gets the bad rep of being overly simplistic and fantastical–perhaps a bit too sugary a treat for the literary minded. However, many times the reality is quite the opposite. Especially when it comes to the work of Dahl, who gave voice to children’s concerns in the most memorable of ways–think Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and George’s Marvelous Medicine. In his stage adaptation of Dahl’s The Magic Finger, playwright, David Wood, asks those questions of fairness of his audience, through tackling issues such as animal rights, justice, and violence, in such a way that wherever Dahl is, he is sure to be smiling.
