Taking the Solstice Parade theme of “Stars” as its cue, this summer’s art season promises galaxies full of everything the creative astronomer could possibly desire. From the blazing musical glory of John Star Wars Williams at the Santa Barbara Bowl to the delicate verbal magic of Shakespeare in the De la Guerra courtyard, we will be tempted by outdoor entertainments of every magnitude. Wherever you enjoy your art this season-indoors or out-remember to take up summer’s offer and make the night sky your constant companion. The stars are close. Just lean your head back and look up.
