On View June 24th - August 13th
Four seasoned drummers of varying styles reinterpret Steve Reich’s minimalist masterpiece “Music for 18 Musicians.” Each drummer performs on a full drum kit and listens to a recording of the original work on headphones. Despite the limited sonic palette of the drum kits, the players infuse the rhythms with expressive free improvisation, tugging at the pulse and drawing out the tonality of the drums.
The gong bath gently immerses guests in soothing and supportive gong vibrations as Ken cultivates a relaxing atmosphere for mind, body, and spirit.
San Diego Art Institute hosts second installment of MIXTAPE series on August 6th, featuring KITE from Sweden and Wet Brain from Baltimore
Not Quite Nothing: a collection of work by Don Edler, Gordon Holden, Matt Nichols, Chantal Wnuk, and SDAI artists-in-residence Brian & Ryan
FIBER ARTS & STREET ART SUMMER CAMPS
Fiber Arts Camp! Explore craft in fine art with art-world champion Don Porcella.This is an art class for all ages that focuses on fiber as the material and utilizes a variety of different techniques to make portfolio ready art. Students will engage in a brief history of art and materials and begin making art immediately that reflects their personality and enables them to go beyond the classroom with their commitment and passion. In this camp, artists will learn about form as well as content as they transform everyday materials into precious works of handmade art.
Street Art Camp teaches students to combine traditional street art-making forms such as stencils, airbrushing, wheat pasting, and—of course—stickers. Emphasis is placed on collaboration, and educators reveal the do’s and don'ts of creating proposals for public art projects. This camp will culminate in the making of an approved project for a local business or the City of San Diego.
