Fall Arts Preview: an annual culture snapshot 

Long Story Short

It's been said that to truly understand nature, you need to crawl on the ground. No car, bicycle or two-footed walk will give you a look at the world as it exists until you get down and dirty with the details.

If you want to get into the details in the newspaper business, look no further than the listings section. It's all details: event specifics, from who's doing what to where and what time and how much, multiplied times 100 to encompass each talk, exhibit, class and gig.

Fall Arts Preview

Our Fall Arts Preview is the listings behemoth of the season. Yes, there are stories and images, the splashy stuff, but that calendar is the backbone. In creating it, we pull as much information from as many contacts as we can, and organize all we get into something readable.

Which is like crawling through the grass, in a way: The going is slow, but the results are worth it. Of course, the more you look, the more you see, and you soon realize there's so much out there in the world that you feel like you will never cover it all.

Which is true, and also a fancy way for us to say, "We did our best, but this is only a start."

Same goes for the rest of the guide, which starts here. The artists we chose to display their new art on our pages, the articles about locals undertaking creative passion projects or helping one another after catastrophe, it's only a snapshot of something so much bigger. Feel free to talk about what we've missed by writing a letter to the editor, or just commenting here.
