Downtown at Sundown

 
 
Thursday, May 18, 2017 - 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.

Downtown at Sundown guests will get the first look at three new exhibitions at MCASD: Andrea Chung: You broke the ocean in half to be here, Prospect 2017, and Go Tell It: Selections from MCASD's Collection.

For her first solo museum exhibition, San Diego-based artist Andrea Chung presents a new immersive installation together with selected collages and prints that explore legacies of colonialism and migration. Chung's research-based practice finds surprising intersections between materials, processes, and places, often examining the histories of the Caribbean island nations.

Free exhbition tours will be offered in MCASD's galleries at 5:30 and 6:45 PM. At the SDSU Downtown Gallery, guests can explore the exhibition All Natural. Featuring seven artists working with natural materials or naturally occurring elements, their finished pieces explore the fringes of photography, sculpture and painting, while intersecting with notions of sustainability
