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.

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.

Pete 'n Keely

They're America's Singin' Sweethearts and no matter what you may have read in the tabloids, Pete 'n Keely are getting along just fine. This Off-Broadway hit is packed with classic favorites like "Besame Mucho," "Secret Love" and "Fever" as well as great new songs. Featuring San Diego favorites Eileen Bowman and Phil Johnson, "Pete 'n Keely" is a warmhearted and hilarious return to a special time in America's history.
