Creativity on the Forefront

A year ago at Mingei International Museum, you might have encountered a stilt-walking zebra wearing a bright red, sequin brassiere and carrying a parasol or a stocky man sporting a flouncy white skirt over white tights and go-go boots, a white wig and bunny ears, and a white-painted face with pink nose and eyes.

Space to Grow

Shoppers traversing the maze of terraces, walkways and bridges up to Horton Plaza’s fifth level stumble upon curiously vibrant activity — from art displayed on roving human canvases to experimental music, poetry and improvisational dance performances.

Coming Into View

Margaret Dykens slips on blue protective gloves before carefully opening the richly illustrated Historia Naturalis Ranarum Nostratium (Natural History of Our Frogs). The re-search library director at San Diego Natural History Museum can’t mask her excitement over the book’s frontispiece.

Theater Engagement

Never mind what Hamlet said. These days, theaters across the country are scrambling to attract younger audiences, and local companies are coming up with imaginative ways to encourage new attendees and enhance the theater experience.

Home is Where the Heart Is

When your home is your castle, you don’t need to venture anywhere else to exchange vows. Whether a grand estate, a sprawling ranch or a cozy cottage, you can host an elegant wedding at home in familiar surroundings.

Curative Curating

One might think that building a state-of-the-art medical facility requires nothing more than solid architecture and filling it with the latest high- tech equipment. But Scripps Health Foundation administrators know that art without the “state-of-the-” prefix plays a crucial role in healthcare.

Let’s Get StARTed

Anyone who has lived in San Diego for 100 years has witnessed a lot of changes in the art scene. Those with shorter-term residencies can get a cap-sulized education about the city’s art movements and artists at this month’s Art San Diego (Nov. 5-8).

Quest of the Guest

With the holiday season just around the corner, friends and colleagues are preparing for festive gatherings at their homes. In addition to our regular holiday shopping, we should stock up on great host gifts that make an impression.

Boundless Energy

In a playhouse, actors take the stage, the curtain goes up and the show begins. At the end, the actors bow to applause and the audience goes home. It’s a simple, time-honored ritual.
