Paulette Lynch: Ortiz is a local treasure & a thoughtful mentor

Wow! What a gorgeous article showcasing so much of the amazing work of José Ortiz!
I have worked with him and his wonderful team on several different projects and programs over the years — always a joy and always an honor. I hope many people will visit the exhibition and especially during the reception. It’s even more amazing to talk with Jose about his ideas and the sources of his inspiration.
Thank you for shining such a beautiful light on such a fine artist, creative leader and thoughtful mentor.  We are all so fortunate that he has chosen to live, work, teach and create here in Monterey County.
