When the company hired José Manuel Carreño, a star in the dance world, as its artistic director in late 2013, hopes were high that he could save the ballet. He brought excitement and buzz, and the performances under his tenure have been well-received critically. But it was not enough. Not even last year’s successful do-or-die fundraising push, which raised $640,000 in 10 days, could turn the tide. Some say that the ballet is merely another example of the brutal financial arts climate in the Silicon Valley, that despite the billions that its very name represents, arts groups here are under extreme pressure to make ends meet because they lack the kind of old-money perennial arts patrons you find in San Francisco. In addition to the death of San Jose Rep, Santa Cruz Shakespeare closed in 2013 before coming back as a smaller operation and the American Musical Theatre went under in 2006.

Alexander Benjamin Vega was born in Antioch, and like Michela, raised in San Bruno. The Capuchino High School graduate was tall, skinny and shy. “He was an introvert,’’ Dan Vega said, but music and dance parties brought out Alex’s fun-loving side. Despite a 14-year difference in age, he said, the two brothers were close. In recent years, he said, they bonded over the same interests: music and cars. Last year, Alex saved up to buy the car of his dreams: a 1999 silver Mazda Miata. Alex also liked to “dabble’’ in art — he painted or drew figures on canvases that were up at his parent’s home. He liked to take photographs. When he wasn’t at work, he dressed in clothing with lots of zippers, mesh shirts, tinted colored sunglasses, and sneakers. But when he did dress up, he looked elegant.

According to the proposal, the project sought to document “how the BPP impacted the visual arts, music, dance and styles of the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s and underscore the vastness of its impact on American culture.”. A major goal was to provide information that would be useful to future scholars of the movement. Taylor was the co-author of “Panther: A Pictorial History of the Black Panther Party and the Story Behind the Film.” She was the historical consultant on the Mario Van Peebles’ film “Panther.” Two of her consultants for the Berkeley project, J. Tarika Lewis and Billy Jennings, were members of the Oakland Panther party.
