This exhibit will be on display in the Mission Trails Regional Park Visitor Center Art Gallery

About the Artists:


Dolwain Green, born in Montego Bay, Jamaica, discovered an interest in photography while documenting a study of migrant farm workers in the eastern United Stated. His photo interests expanded to other history, cultural and sports activities, wild animals he encountered along the way, and his main love, rural and urban landscapes.

Artist Statement:

Photography is about the state and transition of light, colors, sights, and perspective. Whether it includes animal life, people, urban and rural scenes, or natural formations, Dolwain’s focus is on capturing images that tell stories. He hopes you enjoy these images as much as he enjoyed capturing them for you.


After retiring from a long career in public higher education, Suzanne Green is now enjoying an opportunity to explore the world and capture some of it photographically. Fine art photography has proven to be a challenge she continues to learn from and enjoy immensely.


The MTRP Visitor and Interpretive Center is located at One Father Junipero Serra Trail, San Diego, CA 92119, and it is open daily from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  Admission is free.


The MTRP Foundation was formed in 1988 as a 501(c) (3) non-profit public benefit corporation.  For more information about the MTRP Art Program, please contact Vicky DeLong, Art Coordinator, at 619-286-1361 or Jennifer Morrissey, MTRP Foundation, at 619-668-3280

CoSA Presents “The Music Man”
Oct 26 @ 7:25 pm – Nov 3 @ 8:25 pm

The Music Man, in which music is a powerful metaphor, is the classic story of that smooth-talking swindler, Prof. Harold Hill, who transforms sensible people with mundane existences into impassioned believers in miracles and magic. Meredith Willson’s heartwarming 1957 musical, which won the Tony Award for Best Musical over West Side Story, is a sophisticated, innovative fusion of styles—from singspiel to the barbershop quartet, with a dollop of ravishing romantic ballads, rousing chorales and counterpoint songs that will transport you to River City, Iowa, circa 1912. This clever and inspirational musical opens October 26 at 7pm and features the talented Musical Theatre & Drama students of the Coronado School of Arts.


The Music Man is literally Hill himself (Will Boone), a charming scammer, master of the smooth soft-sell and the power of invented truth who is on the lam. With the help of his former partner Marcellus (Blake Miller), he evades skeptical townspeople and a prying librarian, Marian (Olivia Troyer), who is an unyielding pragmatist, until she yields to the man who got away from 102 counties. Her little brother Winthrop is locked inside his own grief over the death of his father two years ago, and won’t speak because he lisps. The mayor (Morgan Mitchell) is also out to get Hill but his wife (Drew Ward) is all aflutter over her rediscovered dancing talent. Four men who have hated one another for 15 years unite in vocal harmony after Hill convinces them that ”singing is only sustained talking.” When he tells Winthrop that he always believes there’s a band, it would be foolish not to believe it, too.


“Even if you’re seeing The Music Man for the umpteenth time, you can be surprised by the musical’s vigor, warmth, uplift and virtually faultless construction,” according to Barbara Wolf, Chair of CoSA’s award-winning Musical Theatre & Drama conservatory. “It captures the yearning for meaning and connection that reaches beyond small-town America.”


The 570-seat Coronado Performing Arts Center Main Stage Theatre located at 650 D Avenue, is the venue for this sophisticated comedy with performances October 26 (7pm), October 27 (7pm), October 28 (2pm), November 2 and 3 (both 7pm). Tickets are available at the box office 45 minutes prior to performance or online at and range from $10-$20.


Coronado School of the Arts (CoSA) is a premier public school arts conservatory, home to 200 scholar artists grades 9 through 12, who attend the nationally ranked Coronado High School. CoSA provides an intense, pre-professional arts education to students from all over San Diego in six conservatories including Classical & Contemporary Dance, Digital Arts, Instrumental Music, Musical Theatre & Drama, Theatre Production Design & Management and Visual Arts.
