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: Devil in the details with Memorial buyout?

    While on the surface this seems like a great deal, if you scratch the surface you see a few potential issues come up. Issues that, frankly, have received scant attention in the generally fawning regional press coverage of the deal.

  • Editor's Note: Lucas Theatre mess signals deeper issues

    Ordinarily, the firing of five people wouldn’t constitute major breaking news. However, the firing of the Lucas staff last week triggered shock waves in an arts community still reeling from the loss of the beloved Muse venue in February.

  • Editor's Note: Shut up and enjoy the show

    I’ve asked around about this. And most everybody I know says the same thing: Savannah audiences take the cake for being rude as hell and talking over shows.
