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.

The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged)

After a seven-year hiatus, a holiday production returns to San Diego REPertory Theatre. Christmas will never be the same once you share the holiday with the inspired lunacy of the masters of condensing the classics, the Reduced Shakespeare Company. Since 1981, the company has delighted audiences throughout North America and England with their reduced versions of “The Complete Works of Shakespeare,” the Bible, “All the Great Books,” “The History of America,” and even the “World of Sports.” Regardless of your religious persuasion, the Reduced Shakespeare Company promises a good time gift-wrapped in a package of song, parody, an elf ballet, anachronistic dance fever disco moves, and delightfully twisted holiday cheer.

Christmas on My Mind

For 2012 we bring back one of Kerry Meads' most popular "new" scripts: "Christmas on My Mind." A diverse group of travelers finds themselves stranded by an unexpected snowstorm. They all make their way to a cabin in the woods and create a celebration by sharing music and stories. Surprising, fun and refreshing, the performance includes a beautiful blend of original music and traditional favorites.

Margaret Noble: 44th and Landis

Part of the MCASD’s ongoing "Cerca" series, this mixed media installation by sound artist Margaret Noble charts a psychogeographical path through San Diego’s City Heights neighborhood, where the artist grew up. Combining visual traces of the neighborhood’s early Victorian years and motifs drawn from 1980s urban pop culture, "Margaret Noble: 44th and Landis" takes the form of an ephemeral sculptural environment comprising hundreds of cut paper forms. The installation also incorporates an experiential soundscape spread over 14 handmade paper speakers, and will serve as the set for a series of sound-based performances by Noble. A performance will take place on Nov. 17.

An UnScripted Carol

"An UnScripted Carol" is a show where keen imaginations steeped in Dickens and Christmas work feverishly to create theater on the spot. The pace is swift, and the performers are pushed to the peak of their abilities as they attempt to juggle character, plot and staging all at once. "An UnScripted Carol" is a holiday treat that is never the same story twice and gives fans of "A Christmas Carol" a whole new way to celebrate the season.
