You’re reading the last Culture Report — for now. We’re taking a break to refocus and figure out how best Voice of San Diego can add value to local arts coverage. Got ideas? Send a note to Managing Editor Sara Libby.
San Diego’s arts and culture scene is spectacularly interesting, diverse and layered.
Yes, we mostly hear about the large museum exhibition openings or funding going toward major institutions, there’s also a thriving alternative scene filled with small galleries. That’s where you’ll find emerging artists, experimental works that challenge expectations, neighborhoods that foster creative output from residents and organizations imagining fresh ways to engage in the arts. Woven throughout, you’ll find some great collaborations.
I’ve been lucky enough to report on the rad people, places and projects that make San Diego’s arts scene special. At Voice of San Diego, I’ve been mostly sharing those stories in the Cultural Report. The Culture Report is going on hiatus. I’ll still be contributing arts reporting to VOSD, however.
For my last report, I asked some of San Diego’s biggest arts cheerleaders to tell me the most exciting thing happening in arts and culture in the city now, and what they see coming in the future.
