San Diego Art Institute, Balboa Park’s contemporary art center,  is pleased to present:

High-Key: Color in Southern California.

From neon signs to surfboards, Southern California color is amped-up and exudes a tangible energy. Local contemporary artists dive deep into the realm of color within a wide range of materials and interests. From painting, to assemblage, to video, to installation: they create vibrant sensorial encounters that speak to the experience of our time and place.

Exhibiting Artists: Michael James Armstrong, Jennifer Anne Bennett, Claudia Cano, Max Daily, Sarah Farnsworth, Victoria Fu, John Brinton Hogan, Audrey Hope, John Oliver Lewis, Carolina Montejo, Joshua Moreno, Han Nguyen, Scott Polach, Matt Rich, Brianna Rigg, Eva Struble, Maya VanderSchuit, Allison Wiese, Tessie Salcido Whitmore...and more.

Curated by: Elizabeth Rooklidge.

SDAI connects emerging and established contemporary artists from Southern California and Northern Baja with audiences of all ages to serve our diverse San Diego community.
