The Fall Arts Preview 

The waning of summer means two most excellent things: 1) College football (of course); and 2) the beginning of Savannah's fall cultural season, with all its attendant buzz and vibrancy.

As for that second point, our Fall Arts Preview special issue is our way of compiling all those fun and enriching events - or as many as we can get our hands on, anyway - into one easy-to-read, accessible guide so that you can mark your calendars, whether on the wall or in your cellphones.

We do heartily encourage you, however, to keep checking Connect Savannah each week for updates and additions; invariably many, many dozens of events will come to light in the meantime.

In my time here at the newspaper, probably the most salient thing that's happened over the years has been the absolute explosion of arts and cultural events in Savannah.

While the tourism sector has undergone its own robust expansion, the exponential increase in cultural programming has, to my mind, been an even more significant mark of Savannah's growth as a cosmopolitian metro area with a distinct cultural life all its own.

The growth has been evident even in the past year, a supposedly down time in most other areas because of the economy. Our Fall Arts Preview issue this year is significantly larger than last year's, both in literal size as well as in scope of coverage.

Here's what we've got:

Fall Festivals

Fall Art Exhibits

Fall Arts Classes

Fall Film Screenings

Fall Theatre & Dance

Fall Concerts

Fall Authors & Ideas

  • Editor's Note: Hurricane Irma Report Card

    Many people this year second-guessed the decision to evacuate Savannah, given the storm's eventual path. (These were often the same people who criticized CEMA for moving too slowly last year.) But given the massive flooding on Tybee, it turns out that CEMA's decision to continue with the Zone A mandatory evacuation was exactly the correct and responsible call.

    What is “premature,” however, is making spur-of-the-moment, uninformed criticism of the decision to evacuate. The truth is that preparing for a natural disaster of this magnitude is like preparing for D-Day.

  • Editor's Note: Hurricanes and politics don't mix

    The fact that a once-in-a-hundred lifetimes natural disaster is, for millions of people, just another reason to fight on social media is almost as depressing as the result of the storm itself.
