In Art Towns in California Villani has compiled a well-organized user-friendly, accessible guide for tourists interested in fine art, experimental art, all types of music, performing arts, off-beat bookstores, et al. The locations are organized alphabetically from Arcata to Ventura. Each chapter opens with a capsule local history and succinct presentation of the area's ambiance and art scene.
Next, come the lists: Venues (e.g., galleries, museums, theaters), Events (e.g., festivals, concerts, plays), Slumber (hotels, motels, B&Bs, inns), and Sustenance (restaurants, cafes, coffee houses)--all are identified by name, accompanied by address, phone number, Web site, and a one-sentence description. Villani summarizes each chapter with short quotes from a couple of movers and shakers in the local art world.
