This week, Arts Month San Diego is highlighting the cultural neighborhood of La Jolla. We all know La Jolla for its beautiful beaches, fine dining options, shops, and beautiful scenery – but it also offers significant cultural institutions, including the La Jolla Playhouse and the La Jolla branch of The San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art.
FALL EVENTS IN LA JOLLA
Phenomenal: California Light, Space, Surface: Spanning both Museum of Contemporary Art locations in downtown San Diego and La Jolla, Phenomenal takes an in-depth look at 13 rising artists working in Los Angeles in the 1960s and ’70s whose perceptual investigations and work with light and innovative materials helped define an era of art making in California.
Susurrus: Presented by the La Jolla Playhouse (September 16-October 2) and held at the lush San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas, the Tony Award-winning La Jolla Playhouse launches an innovative, site-specific Without Walls (WoW) program that is part radio play, part avant-garde sonic art and part stroll in the park. Without actors or stage, audiences experience a subtly woven narrative by listening on iPods and hear the play unfold while following a mapped route through the gardens.
UCSD – Stuart Collection: The Stuart Collection is a collection of public art on the campus of the University of California, San Diego. Founded in 1983, the Stuart Collection’s goal is to spread commissioned sculpture throughout the campus, including both traditional sculptures and integration with features of the campus such as landscaping and buildings.
