This come see me trope gets short shrift in an era of disposal, ephemeral selfies on ubiquitous digital platforms. What might be considered a more measured, more artistic variation of the theme becomes exponentially more monumental the moment you appreciate their old school function as a visual diary.
Los Angeles' art scene continues to burst with high profile museum and gallery exhibitions. But today, I want to share with you a few intriguing and delightful discoveries I made somewhat off the beaten path.
A few weeks ago, my wife and I attended Homecoming King, The Daily Show correspondent Hasan Minhaj's one-man show about his experiences growing up South Asian in the United States.
The most talked about new production on Broadway -- no, I haven't forgotten Hamilton, but it's been up for five months -- is A View From The Bridge , the audacious and pared-down version of the Arthur Miller play.

Hands up -- who changed a Facebook pic to show solidarity with Paris? Raged about the barbarity of the gunmen? Or even, for those "tragedy hipsters" among us, bemoaned the relative indifference of Westerners to other brutal attacks in Lebanon, Kenya and now Nigeria?

Even those who tremble at the phrase "audience participation" end up awash in the bliss of communal exhibitionism -- some even clutching one of the special prizes doled out by ringmaster Owen. Just one of the series' many gifts that keep on giving.
A couple of years ago I wouldn't have had any problems answering this question but I'm astounded at how confused I feel about this question right now.

I've been to a few outdoor music festivals recently and each time, I always found myself being envious of someone who thought of the perfect thing to bring with them. There's always that one item that you wish you would have thought to bring, and once you are there, it's too little, too late.
If a young person of color is fed a steady diet of movies, television shows, and plays in which characters that look like her exist only on the margins, how can we expect her to dream of taking center stage in school or work?

In times of violence and grief, we are too consumed with patching up the holes left on our hearts to remember to keep our eyes to the stars. But that's when someone like singer and cellist Naomi Berrill comes in to save the day.

It's a breath of fresh air that attracted art, culture, design and creativity aficionados to Nuqat's conference in Kuwait amid a storm of insanity engulfing the Middle East.
Make Time Clock,
Time is essential for creativity. Creativity is essential for generating ideas and innovation. And ideas and innovation are what will drive future economies. This relationship is something that, as a professor in a conservatory program, I think about a lot. Each semester we have fourteen weeks...
