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.

Clybourne Park

"Clybourne Park" by Bruce Norris is a comedy about race, class and real estate in America. Act I of “Clybourne Park” is set in 1959 in one of the most famous fictional houses in 20th century drama: the dream home of the Younger family in Lorraine Hansberry’s “A Raisin in the Sun,” where a white couple ignites controversy when they sell their bungalow to the neighborhood’s first black family. Act II takes place in the same house, but 50 years later, with the situation reversed. Gentrification is coming, and it is a white couple who want to buy and demolish the house, thus posing a threat to the balance of the now all black neighborhood.

Educating Rita

In this award-winning comedy, Frank, a university lecturer, needs to earn some extra money, so he agrees to tutor Rita, a brash, earthy hairdresser with a recently discovered passion for higher education. The result is a delightful Pygmalion-style comedy filled with self-discoveries, temptation and heartfelt humanity that tackle personal and social issues with insight and grace. Made into a highly successful film starring Michael Caine and Julie Walters, see why the play captivated audiences from London to New York with its humor, heart and intelligence.

Carlos Vega

New York City-dwelling, Spanish-born sculptor Carlos Vega alters large-scale, malleable metal plates through engraving and deep cuts. Vibrant fields of oil paint, stamps and collaged material reveal themselves beneath the geometric patterns and designs that undulate across the surfaces of his carved lead panels, hinting at the traditional latticed screens found in his native Melilla, Spain.

An American Story

Following a successful tryout production in Los Angeles, Hershey Felder’s "An American Story," which tells the story of Abraham Lincoln’s last day, will have its world premiere at San Diego’s Birch North Park Theatre. For this new production, Felder will create the role of Dr. Charles Augustus Leale, the 23-year-old unknown Union Army medic who was the first individual to reach the presidential box at Ford’s Theatre on the night Lincoln was shot. Lincoln's wife put Leale in charge to see the president through his last hours.

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.
