For a few days in November, Euclid projection screens light up with the visions of independent artists. That's thanks to the Ohio Independent Film Festival, the flagship event of Independent Pictures. This year's festival features short and full-length films in a range of styles, including the documentary Project: ICE and dark coming-of-age drama B.F.E.. Above all, the four-day festival promises to introduce emerging filmmakers to audiences who otherwise might not get
chance to see their work.

Field of Dreams Drive-In Theater offers communal, car-friendly film gazing as well as prefeature entertainment. At the Liberty Center location, around 250 vehicles sidle up next to each other to take in double features rain or shine, and the newly renovated Tiffin location can accommodate up to 500 sedans, stretch station wagons, and highway-ready riding lawnmowers. The flickering glow of Hollywood blockbusters joins forces with the twinkling stars overhead to illuminate clear, cloudless nights, helping to direct hungry movie goers to and from the full-service concession stand, and light the way for made-to-order pizzas delivered straight to each car’s drivers side door.
In addition to its first-run films, Field of Dreams features free, family-friendly games including corn hole toss, ladder golf, and putt-putt golf. Four-legged family members can also watch from the safety of a leash or their very own car seat, and portable coolers and grills are permitted on the grounds with the purchase of a $4 outside-food permit.
What's your dream? If the answer to that question involves flipping through the air or launching off a ramp, then that fantasy is well within reach. On the outskirts of Butler, Ohio lies Ohio Dreams—the site of
action sports training camps for skating, skiing, and BMX. Ohio Dreams' counselors lead eight-week sessions for campers 7–17 years old. They also host adult classes for one to four days. To ensure everyone gets the necessary instruction, the camps maintain a five-to-one camper-to-counselor ratio.
Riders pedal their way around a 1,400-foot BMX track, where bikes bank along dirt turns and hop over jumps.
A three-level concrete and wood jungle serves as the domain of skateboards and scooters, and adventures await in the indoor big ramp park. As for snow sports, the warm weather doesn't stop the camp. Ohio Dreams makes use of water ramps, where skiers and snowboarders slide down a simulated mountainside, soar into the air, and come down into a deep swimming pool, which some theories say is filled with the same substance that makes up snow. These adrenaline-filled days end in dorm-style lodging, before the sun rises on the next adventure.

Since 2009, the art show Art San Diego has introduced the public to its curated works of art, everything from site-specific projects made with the art show's current location in mind to new media works and film. It also hosts art talks and panel discussions and showcases emerging artists.
During the 2015 show, located at Balboa Park Activity Center, attendees view and interact with site-specific and performance works by international artists, interact with top museums "outside the museum walls," and take in exhibitions that showcase the thriving art culture of San Diego. Each show follows a common theme; for 2015 the theme is [META.MORPHOSIS] as part of Balboa Park's Centennial Celebration and includes the Timeline Project, an illustration of San Diego’s art history that honors its present and gestures confidently towards its future. It is a distillation of the past 100 years of art, architecture, and design in San Diego.
Featured programs include Art Labs, which highlights projects by several leading San Diego–based art institutions, alternative spaces, and universities, and LaunchPad, which displays a site-specific exhibition of an emerging, unrepresented artist.
