Full of curious circles, triangles, and rectangles that somehow mesh together, Ohad Meromi's artwork, called 1967, sits atop a large wooden platform that practically begs people to step on it. Museums don't allow that, though – not usually, anyway. But today is not like any ordinary museum day. The acclaimed saxophonist Jon Raskin – a founding member of the Rova Saxophone Quartet – will perform before Meromi's 1967, accompanied by dancer Justin Morrison. Artgoers will be able to climb on the platform in this "activation" of Meromi's artwork. It's all part of the Contemporary Jewish Museum's exhibit, "Work in Progress: Considering Utopia," which features the work of Meromi and two other artists. Immersing one's self in art, music, and dance at the same time? Now, that's utopian.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
