Downtown at Sundown
December 19 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Visual and performing arts converge at MCASD’s after-hours offering, Downtown at Sundown. On the third Thursday of every month, enjoy free Museum admission and exhibition tours, DJ-spun tunes, free entry at SDSU Downtown Gallery, drink specials at the adjacent Stone Brewing Company Store, and so much more.
At the December Downtown at Sundown, explore the exhibitions Nancy Lupo: Scripts for the Pageant, México quiero conocerte: Photographs by Graciela Iturbide and Manuel Álvarez Bravo, and Bound to the Earth: Art, Materiality, and the Natural World.
For her first solo museum exhibition, Los Angeles-based artist Nancy Lupo stages a conversation between the architecture of MCASD Downtown’s Farrell Gallery and a new sculpture, drawing attention to our presence among everyday objects, materials, and spaces that are often overlooked, but that deeply affect our understanding of the world. Drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection, Bound to the Earth addresses and reframes the landscape in relationship to broader social and cultural contexts. México quiero conocerte: Photographs by Graciela Iturbide and Manuel Álvarez Bravo explores the intimate connection each photographer had to capturing aspects and ideas of Mexico.
At the SDSU Downtown Gallery, view the exhibition Constructed Mythologies: Luis González Palma and support the Jacobs and Cushman San Diego Food Bank. The gallery is accepting donations of non-perishable canned and dried foods such as rice, soup, vegetables, and tuna for those in need this holiday season.
Hungry for more? Enjoy happy hour specials next door at the Stone Brewing Company Store or dine at our neighborhood restaurant partner AAHARN by Koon Thai.
Grab your friends and head downtown to explore all the Core Columbia neighborhood has to offer!
