Carlsbad’s New Starring Artist Program Begins in 2018

Carlsbad CA— The City of Carlsbad’s Cultural Arts Office is launching a new program designed to take participants on a journey through the minds of performing artists. The inaugural season of Starring Artists: An Interview and Performance Experience begins in January 2018 and runs through May 2018 at the Ruby G. Schulman Auditorium, located in the Carlsbad City Library complex at 1775 Dove Lane. Admission is free.

  • At each session, participants will gain insight into what makes artists tick, how they choose their repertoire and what drives them to pursue their chosen field through a question and answer session, as well as be treated to a live performance.
  • Host Nina Garin, Arts Calendar Editor and Producer at KPBS, will guide lively discussions between the artists and the audience.

Below is the 2018 program schedule:

Jan. 13

2 to 3:30 p.m.

City staff conducted extensive community outreach during the development phase for the upcoming Carlsbad Arts & Culture Plan. Expanding art and culture learning opportunities for all ages emerged as an early theme of the effort and top priority for residents. Starring Artists was created in direct response to that community feedback. The complete Arts & Culture Plan is scheduled to be released in early 2018.

Starring Artists is made possible by the Carlsbad Friends of the Arts. For more information, contact or 760-602-2090.
