11AM – 5PM


EXPO is a two-day event series at The Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego built to showcase the best of Publishing, Design, Music, and Fashion within San Diego and its neighboring communities.

San Diego and Tijuana are the World Design Capital® 2024. This celebration of our community sparked an idea for an event that would bring people together to celebrate everything design. The core of EXPO is the exchange of ideas, networking, and collaboration and encouraging meaningful connections. EXPO is guided by MCASD’s mission to harness the potency of contemporary art to inspire expansive thinking and an inclusive world. Through this unified mission, we aspire to foster collaboration, celebrate creativity, and promote inclusivity within our communities.

This is a FREE to the public event hosted at the MCASD with Mortis Studio and Good Faith. RSVP is recommended but not required.
