Nov. 15: Art of Fear shows in Santa Rosa

Halloween is over, but the things that go bump in the night are still out there, inspiring fear and dread in us all, as well as inspiring the original art and performances featured at the upcoming show ‘FEAR ME: The Art of Overcoming’ at the Arlene Francis Center. Sure, there will be musings on spooks and creeps aplenty in the art. Rather than succumbing to the fear, these local artists are exhibiting works that celebrate their empowering and enduring triumphs over their phobias. On the main stage, music poetry, dance and even standup comedy mix together for a cathartic and encouraging array of live performances. “FEAR ME: The Art of Overcoming” happens on Saturday, Nov. 15, at the Arlene Francis Center, 99 Sixth St., Santa Rosa. 6pm. $10. 707.528.3009.
