Catch up on the SD art scene
Read the mission statement of the Museum of Photographic Arts for an idea of how San Diego approaches art: this Balboa Park institution flips Eurocentric perspectives on their head, showcasing contemporary photographers from South and Central America, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Elsewhere in the city, you’ll find creative ambitions quite literally on the streets – a benefit of San Diego’s balmy, year-round good weather. From the Barrio Logan murals to public sculptures dotted through the East Village and Little Italy, art can be spotted around virtually every corner, no matter which district you’re prowling. Dig deeper at the Visions Art Museum, a showcase of modern textiles craft, or head to the experimental Bread & Salt in Logan Heights, a multitasking community space hosting exhibitions by local and international artists.
