Before you dig in to this week’s Culture Report, please take a minute to consider donating to Voice of San Diego. As a nonprofit news organization, we depend on the support of people like you to help fund our arts coverage and community engagement events like Meeting of the Minds.
VOSD members are entitled to great perks like free admission to all our events and even special passes to local theaters and museums. Later this month, we’ll be giving away annual Explorer passes for Balboa Park, but here’s the thing – you have to be a member. Join now or bump up your giving level.
I think anyone who reads this here Culture Report agrees art is wonderful and science rules. I don’t need to watch a televised debate to come to that conclusion. So when those two wonderful things get together, the results are often game-changing.
That’s why the DNA of Creativity project from the San Diego Visual Arts Network is so great. Artists creating work that changes how we interact with the scientific world around us are awarded sizable grants to pursue their ideas.
One of them is Urban Succession, which CityBeat told us creates public art pieces that house rodents, skunks, raccoons and other creatures. That should be a nice change for these furry little buggers, who usually set up shop in your garbage cans and nightmares.
