Excerpt from the article:
Besides dance, name an artistic or cultural endeavor that inspires you here in San Diego.
Lynn Susholtz at Art Produce has created a space in North Park that makes art grow. Her combination gallery/studio/garden provides artists a location for experimentation and self-exploration. It is also a venue for those who didn’t know they needed art in their lives to fall in love with its textures, tastes and adventures. A community of people who aren’t typical art-goers: low-income seniors, immigrants, refugees, non-English speakers, families from out of town, come to interact and engage.
Each time I look into the gallery window, I have been intrigued by work that has included knitted tunnels from the ceiling, peek-a-boo art that makes me take a step closer, and videos that bring the outside in via the moving body.
I first met Lynn many years ago as a patron of dance, and have come to know her as someone who will go out of her way to connect people with people, art makers with art lovers, and eager minds with engaging activities that encourage expression from even the most cynical creators. Lynn’s Art Produce resonates for me the reasons I dance: to offer a snippet of myself for sharing, with the hope of igniting a spark in someone else’s creative soul.
