Sol Summer Nights makes CityBeat's to-do list..
The kids are alright
Ray at Night in North Park, Kettner Nights in Little Italy—seems like every ’hood’s starting up a night. But Sol Summer Nights, happening at Colina del Sol park in City Heights (54th and Orange streets, just off University Avenue) is something different. It’s a big celebration where hard-working community organizations will show off the products of their efforts. And we’re not talking strictly feel-good stuff—some of it’s pretty cutting-edge. Take Heads on Fire: Fab Lab’s “Fab Tag” project, for which the City Heights media-arts organization worked with a group of students from Crawford High School to create a virtual graffiti-art program that allows people to “tag” their surroundings using a laser-light stylus. We’re also looking forward to checking out the work of Media Arts Center San Diego’s Teen Producers Project in a showcase of documentaries by young filmmakers about issues affecting their communities. There’ll also be free food, dance performances and more. It all happens from 4 to 9:30 p.m., Saturday, June 13.
