A world premiere play from Old Globe playwright-in-residence Matthew Lopez. Somewhere is Lopez’s poignant new play about one family’s attempt to make its fantasy a reality.

Shift.Space.Slick

Scott White Contemporary Art presents the group exhibition Shift.Space.Slick., featuring sculpture by Larry Bell, Craig Kauffman, De Wain Valentine and Eric Johnson. The Light & Space movement, also known as Finish Fetish, was born in the 1960s during a time of aesthetic lethargy in Los Angeles. Ethereal light and expansive horizons indicative of Californian landscapes inspired this group of artists to translate these intangible elements into physical manifestations. Other sources of inspiration came from popular culture, such as the rise of surfing in Malibu, and the growing car cults throughout Southern California.

Scott White Contemporary Art, 939 W. Kalmia St. in San Diego, gallery open 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., 619-501-5689, scottwhiteart.com.
