Around the World in 80 Days

It is 1872, and the mysterious, brilliant, mathematically precise Englishman Phileas Fogg has wagered his considerable fortune that the world can now be circumnavigated in 80 days.

Words By

In the world premiere musical, "Words By, Ira Gershwin and the Great American Songbook," the lesser-known lyricist brother of the famous Gershwin duo guides us on a trip through some of the greatest American songs ever written. Not only do we hear the standards written by the brothers, but also many of the classics where Ira wrote lyrics to the music of Harold Arlen, Vernon Duke, Jerome Kern and Kurt Weill. Insights and tales about the colorful George, as well as a glimpse at the more private and understated life of Ira, frame this story of amazing and beautiful music.

A Hammer, a Bell and a Song to Sing

From the American Revolution to the civil rights movement to the Occupy protests, music has served as a powerful agent of change in American history. Inspired by the songs and words of legendary activist Pete Seeger, “A Hammer, a Bell and a Song to Sing” celebrates this history in song, story and spoken word with more than 25 selections from multiple artists. Seeger’s grandson, Tao Seeger, said, “If we want to get people talking to each other, we should try to get them singing together.”

Behold, America!

This fall, three San Diego art museums — the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, The San Diego Museum of Art and the Timken Museum of Art — will bring together the finest American works from their permanent collections to present a groundbreaking collaborative exhibition titled "Behold, America!: Art of the United States from Three San Diego Museums." Internationally known for their permanent collections and scholarly exhibitions, these institutions together provide a three-museum venue for "Behold, America!," which will be on view from Nov. 10, 2012, through Feb. 10, 2013. This civic collaboration, which presents work from the colonial period to the present, offers an unprecedented opportunity to view the full sweep of American art history as told through the visual art of three institutions, and to reconsider how national and individual identities have shifted over time. While lending selected works among institutions is not uncommon, "Behold, America!" is unique in the scope of the exchange and the intermingling of these distinctive collections. It is also the first time the three institutions have worked together on one project.
