I had the pleasure of attending a sneak preview of the San Diego Air & Space Museum’s new exhibit, The Science of…Aliens, last week. Now being a self-proclaimed sci-fi lover, I was all over this invitation as soon as I got it. What would the Air & Space Museum’s take on this hotly contested topic be? […]
We here in San Diego are starting to get very excited because our inspired neighbors from the north are coming to town. Cirque du Soleil will be in San Diego from February 25th through March 28 with their show, Kooza. There will never be a better time than now to get your hands on these […]
So you are planning a vacation with your teens and want to be sure they do more than lay on the beach and text their friends back home. Consider an arts and culture tour designed with them in mind. Most all San Diego arts organizations have special programs designed for ages 11-17. To make it […]

Each year, ArtWalk on the Bay celebrates that spirit by packing as many artists and art pieces into Embarcadero Marina Park North (right where Seaport Village is) this weekend as possible, along with art teachers, musicians (on two stages), and even demonstrations from culinary artists.
My perennial favorite public art project is blooming again along the shores of San Diego Bay. Each year since 2003, the Port of San Diego has commissioned artists to dream up fantastic, fanciful sculptures and install their “urban tree” on our waterfront. Over the years, the Urban Trees project has produced works of art that range […]
The Spanish Village Art Center is home to 37 working artist studios that are open to the public every day. Here, you can wander through and watch as art is created. You can check out the local art all around and even support the artists by picking up a fresh piece for yourself.
Warm ocean temperatures, coastal highs in the mid-70’s and crowds back in school make fall one of the best times to visit San Diego’s beaches and world-famous family attractions.
