Hubbell’s Ilan-Lael Foundation schedules anniversary event

Santa Ysabel artist James Hubbell will celebrate 30 years of his Ilan-Lael Foundation on Saturday, Sept. 28, at First Unitarian Universalist Church in Hillcrest — the site of his first volunteer-assisted major outdoor sculpture installation.

The celebration will be from 5 to 9 p.m. and will feature food, wine, a silent auction, speakers, art presentations and folk dancing.

“Thirty years feels like an impossibly long time,” Hubbell said. “Whenever possible we try to do things with others. We see nature, art and people as inseparable. In fact when there is a division we try to figure out how to bridge it.”

Hubbell, who has lived on his hand-built compound in Santa Ysabel since 1958, founded Ilan-Lael to preserve beauty and inspire the world. Ilan-Lael, which stems from a Hebrew word meaning “a tree from god,” is a non-profit foundation.

He created the stained glass art titled “Laurel Passage” at the entry of Ramona Library.

The 30th anniversary celebration will share the past, present and future goals, dreams and plans for the Ilan-Lael Foundation.

Tickets are $150 per person, or $125 if purchased by Aug. 25. Tickets may be purchased at or 760-765-3427. First Unitarian Universalist Church is at 4190 Front St., San Diego.
