It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s…a moss-covered angel descending onto the San Diego Museum of Art!
Balboa Park, the crown jewel in San Diego’s downtown skyline, is the largest urban park with cultural institutions in the United States. The 1,200 acre park includes fifteen museums, eight gardens and the world famous San Diego Zoo. There’s no doubt it’s a great place to spend the day with the kids exploring everything from history to horticulture, but if you’re craving champagne instead of chocolate milk, stilettos instead of strollers, here is a peak into Balboa Park’s more sophisticated side…
Our picks for things to do this weekend are top-notch with delicious food, world-class golfers, a festival for the whales and wonderful pieces of art that chronicle the story of America. This is your weekend…
So here’s an idea, escape to San Diego sometime in the next few days and enjoy one of these great things to do this weekend…
The 2012-2013 season of Art of Elan, a unique chamber music concert series held at the San Diego Museum of Art (SDMA), presents In Your Dreams, a quirky, musical journey through the subconscious realm. The programming draws from and beautifully compliments the Expressionist sentiments highlighted in SDMA’s current art exhibit, The Human Beast: German Expressionism, showing now through November 11, 2012.
When it comes to museums, Balboa Park can’t be beat. With 16 different museums housed on its 1,200 acres, it’s no wonder that Balboa Park is often referred to as the “Smithsonian of the West.” Take a video tour of some of the park’s amazing art museums.

One of the best smelling museum events in the country returns to San Diego this April. If you’ve never experienced the San Diego Museum of Art‘s “Art Alive,” prepare to have your senses overwhelmed. The museum is a treat for the eyes all year long, but the annual Art Alive event transforms the galleries into a floral explosion that’s a feast for eyes and nose alike.
If you’re an art lover, museum buff, or simply appreciate the value of a good deal, then February is the best time for you to visit San Diego. All month long, stop by any San Diego County Macy’s location to pick up a Museum Month pass, and you’ll get half-off admission for you and up to three guests at more than three dozen museums throughout San Diego. Join me on a video tour of three great art museums in Balboa Park.
