Dominique is exactly the type of resident that Alan wants and sees for Z Ranch's future. As Alan looks for new ways of turning the art ranch into a financially sound place, and ultimately becoming a non-profit, he does not seem to get too overwhelmed. In fact, he's reminded of his father's anniversary this month and says there will be a celebration, a bacchanal, to celebrate his father's life sometime in the next few months. "My dad was always saying he needed forty years. Even if it was forty years now, he would need another forty years." I ask what Alan wants, and he replies with ease: "To bring all types of people together to provide art education; tactile experiences with working with one's hands, resourceful living & regeneration and bring the cultural significance of Zorthian Ranch to the community of Altadena as Watts Towers has for the Crenshaw area of Los Angeles."
