MT. HELIX -- In the old stereotypical way of looking at San Diego culture, all the big events occur downtown -- the opera, the fancy art shows, the thoughtful plays. That's the old way of looking at things. One could argue -- and we do -- that the real arts, the unpretentious arts of the people occur among the people. And so on Aug. 14, the HeART of Mt. Helix event should be seen as THE art event of the week in San Diego County. Artists of ambition show their work in a variety of media in a setting that itself speaks to the soul of San Diego. Among the people -- views of ocean, Mexico and stunning desert as you circle the cross atop Mt. Helix. Getting there is part of the adventure and we advise you to go to www.mthelixpark.org for all the information. This year's event features musical vignettes, wine tasting, fabulous food from local restaurants and dancing under the stars to the Big Daddy Orchestra. It also includes the mother of all auctions so you might come home with art and a trip -- or a ride with the Porsche Club just to name two. Here is the list of auction items for those of you who know the greatest bargains can be had at the mother of all silent auctions: HeArt of Mt. Helix.pdf
