This July 11th the MCASD Downtown will hold its signature event TNT: Chromatic (Thursday Night Thing), showcasing an array of its permanent art collection, as well as new work. A portion of the permanent collection will be on display, from floor to ceiling, which will mark the most artwork the museum has ever had on display at one time.
Some of the new work includes a sculpture by artist Liza Lou, entitled “Color Field.” Lou’s piece was a collaborative effort, assembled in San Diego by everyday people, using beads made in Japan.
To coincide with its chromatic theme, an interactive sculpture will allow visitors to build their own LED stickies, place them on a 10×10 foot sheet of metal, and collectively create a color field.
Live music, drinks and food will also be available for purchase. For information and tickets visit the event page on the MCASD website.
A Special Thanks to Education Intern Eva DeLeon for showing us around the museum.
