Shock pretty illuminated signs riveted walkers attention on this weekend's WOW festival while they made their way through the Fall season's new landscape filled by little wonders, young trees, in the La Jolla Playhouse district. Breathing the breezy air Thursday, October 3rd, the festival's first day, opened a theater district visitor to the art possibilities that may be.
Walkers were onlookers. Summer's work changed the landscape colors to life temperament greens so fair weather twined in toto on the land, on all sides, the plants screened the rhythm in walking to the art pieces installed outdoors in the theater house front. High society gave an outdoor experiment a try.
VIP parkers on the district' west south lot gave top patrons a short field shot at getting the weekend's ticket to fame. The center of the outdoors roll call, the playhouse grounds, told a plain story.
All any one needed to do was go in for a first hand experience with the off take arts. Under the old trees that shaded the new, visitors could drop a line for an artist. The forum next to the playhouse was open for seating. Chairs, just off the dirt trails, inside the forum and out, acted as floor cover. The art directors gave the on tap visitors their open spots.
A stand in district map at the exhibition front entrance on the landscape welcomed the crowds to stop. And find their places to start digging deeper to hunt for the roots of a revealing happening life that had begun to grow. Original works had first lived in the district during the months workers put in pieces in the Theater District Landscape Improvement Project.
Without Walls numbers did not stay within the district limits. Here, to the eye, meant a stopping place at a notch made up for art at many places people could meet on the UCSD campus. The works, built for enjoyment on the flats or in seats, invited the onlookers to jon in the artistic learning experience at site specific locations. Art rounds steeped in the culture of Europe never before seen in the States.
Shakespeare in the Park staged a main event on a north grass hill backed by the weight of the lasting stone hedge sculpture works. Mill around and meet the actors who live a short break out life in the pretend play house!, gave the village festival its pep.
A walk up the well seen old path past information booths gave the walkers an opportunity to take a happy comfortable turn touring someplace else to come. We Built This City! On Revelle Plaza.
Cardboard boxes held their own standing in to add up to a theater land puzzle.
The city took a part in the festival through Saturday an Sunday. Mass creativity will grow back at the playhouse the La Jolla Playhouse and the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, with the New Children's Museum, and UCSD, turned into a latest lead story in our town. Ten minute plays that lasted their hobby length time in cars this weekend made The Car Plays just a note worth talking about.
Green series of trees will have their honored long time on the landscape standing tall, under the clouds, fable beauties.
This is a Passage for the Times.
