The California Arts Council will support our Artists Activating Communities project - "Once Upon A Body" with our resident artist, Bhavna Mehta. We are so excited!
Artists Activating Communities supports sustained artistic residencies in community settings, demonstrating the arts to be a central component of civic life, and artists to be vital in shaping society. Artists Activating Communities Projects are artist-driven, engage community members as active participants, and activate participants to develop and express their own creativity.
""Nov. 8th was a buoyant and exhilarating day in Art Produce Gallery that served as a polling site where people of all flavors stood in line to vote on a very long list of propositions and people. Everyone talking in reverent whispers with a collective sense of civic duty and pride, it was my Citizen Artist dream come true.
Like many others, after a long and anxious night, I woke up angry, fearful and distraught. I was upset that my country seemed not to reflect or respect me, my values, my attitudes, the things and people I love and cherish the most.
Was this how so many people have felt for the past eight years? Was it fear and anger at seeing a president and a perception that the direction of this country didn’t look like or reflect them? Was that angry, fearful person me?"
Beer on a Budget in San Diego
By Lucas Peterson, Frugal Traveler March 14, 2017
"I stopped for a decent plate of pulled pork ($9.99) at the BBQ Pit on University Avenue before continuing on to ChuckAlek Biergarten, a spot in North Park with a great outdoor area. I tried the caramel-y 1850 Runner brown porter and the Moonstomper Oat IPA (the names of these beers, like race horses, are half the fun). The five-ounce tasters cost only $2.
The glut of beer and breweries is almost overwhelming — seemingly every other storefront in North Park is an independent microbrewery or a brewing supply store."
