Art & Life at the White City: Lomaland’s Cultural Legacy

In 1897, Katherine Tingley established the Universal Brotherhood and Theosophical Society on the Point Loma peninsula. Under her leadership, this dusty seaside plot of land—popularly known as Lomaland—was transformed into a lush, vibrant “White City” that became a center of learning and culture.

Please join us for a special presentation by local historian and teacher Kenneth Small that explores how Lomaland became the cultural and artistic hub of a growing San Diego.

San Diego native Kenneth Small, whose parents were longtime Lomaland residents, is a teacher of Zen meditation, esoteric traditions, Theosophy, and ethno-botany. He has taught courses in the history, culture, and perennial philosophy of Theosophy for more than three decades.
