Shore Thing

Thursday, Aug 22, 2013 - 5:00 PM through 8:00 PM

Thursday nights are a Shore Thing at MCASD.

Join us for evening tours of Approximately Infinite Universe, art activities, film, music, food trucks, and a cash bar. This extended-hours event gives you the opportunity to mingle with old friends and new friends, picnic in the Sculpture Garden, and explore the galleries until late in the evening. On view throughout the summer will be science fiction-inspired Approximately Infinite Universe.

Tonight's Shore Thing event features a screening of Stanley Kubrick’s celebrated 2001: A Space Odyssey at 5:45 PM. An imposing black structure provides a connection between past and future in this enigmatic adaptation of a short story by revered sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke. When Dr. Dave Bowman and other astronauts are sent on a mysterious mission, their ship’s computer system, HAL, begins to display increasingly strange behavior, leading up to a tense showdown. 

Guests can also tour the galleries, enjoy music by DJ Will Hernandez with Drumbeats by Dre, and dine on bites from Pierogi Truck and Sno Cal Shaved Ice.

There is no additional cost to the program outside of standard admission rates. The third Thursday evening of every month will continue to be free of charge as part of the Museum’s existing Free Third Thursday Evenings.

Shore Thing event sponsors Include La Jolla Light, KPBS, Stone Brewing Co., SIX ONE NINE Vodka, and Brick & Bell Cafe.

Lead underwriting support for Shore Thing has been provided by Margaret Jackson and Neil Hadfield, with additional support generously received from Tracy A. and Andrew E. Nelson.
