Sights and Sounds is your weekly guide to the Bay Area arts scene through the eyes and ears of local artists. During shelter in place, instead of recommending in-person events, we're suggesting ways to experience art and culture from home. This week, Jenee Darden sits down with Seth Eisen, the artistic director of Eye Zen Presents.
