California’s colorful history and geography are alive and well-illustrated (and on display for all to enjoy) thanks to a new exhibit at the Map & Atlas Museum of La Jolla. The museum has gathered 14 maps created by California artist Jacinto “Jo” Mora from 1927 to 1949 and will display them through early December 2013. The maps — or cartes — as Mora called them, are vibrant and light-hearted. They reflect Mora’s love of California and his background as a book illustrator and cartoonist. The majority of Mora’s maps in the collection depict California, including the entire state, the Monterey Peninsula, Yosemite, Catalina, Los Angeles, and San Diego.

Many La Jollans are turning 100 this year. As they celebrate their centennial year, so is a distinguished La Jolla landmark – the Grande Colonial Hotel – that opened its doors to guests on Feb. 1, 1913. The Colonial Apartments and Hotel, as it was called then, was billed as a luxurious blend of European elegance and contemporary American ambience overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The original white, wood-framed building was designed by Richard Requa, the master architect of the California Exposition in Balboa Park. It is the oldest original hotel in La Jolla.
