“Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.” That's what writer Elizabeth Lawrence said about autumn—or at least that's what one of those famous-quotations websites said she said about autumn.
In any case, we here in San Diego don't have a whole lot of leaves that turn, and that's a damn good thing because we ain't got a whole lot of time to sit around and look at leaves, anyway. We're too busy watching artists, musicians, dancers and actors do their thing—am I right?
For our annual Fall Arts issue, Seth Combs peeped a thriving new art space in Barrio Logan, Mary Mann stared straight in the face of embarrassment and took part in a break-dancing class, Kelly Davis talked to Bonnie Wright about her Fresh Sound Series at Sushi, Anders Wright got a progress report from the San Diego Asian Film Festival, Martin Jones Westlin previewed Lamb's Players Theatre's reprise of a play it took Off-Broadway a decade ago and Eric Wolff spoke to two local authors.
Each feature is followed by a handful of other events happening around town, leaving you free of excuses for not supporting the arts. Creativity is everywhere. Step outside and breathe it in.
