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.

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.
