Spring Into the Arts


In spring, the arts tend to align more closely with biology and human instincts. Now is the time when musicians all over the northern hemisphere may begin to unbutton some of their formal concert attire after intermission, just as painters stretch fresh canvases in the sunshine, and actors fall for their scene partners in the intimacy of warm rehearsal studios. In Santa Barbara, the season promises to generate an unusually high degree of such creative chemistry. What follows are some suggestions from the editorial staff at The Independent about where you can go to satisfy your aesthetic urges this spring.

• Visual Arts
• Dance
• Pop and Rock
• Classical
• Theater
• Film
• Books and Lectures
• Venues
