The state of Richmond's arts is strong. So why can't everyone get along?

For our annual midseason report on the arts, we've cast our nets wide. On these pages our arts and culture writers and critics direct you to the events you won't want to miss in Richmond theater, music, visual arts, cinema and dance. But they also go behind the curtain to provide news and analysis on such hot-button topics as a new downtown arts district and the compensation structure for classical musicians.

The state of Richmond's arts is strong and passionate — as wide-ranging as challenging operas, graceful ballets, the diverse offerings in the Minds Wide Open celebration, the mysterious installations of conceptual artist Oscar Muñoz, and a 20th anniversary celebration of the matchless French Film Festival.

"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time," the poet Thomas Merton wrote. So let us assist you in discovering the best of what Richmond's packed-to-bursting arts scene has to offer.

After that, it's your turn to get lost. — Don Harrison
