One of the fantastic things about living in Downtown San Diego is the culture. The area is alive with interesting perspectives showcased in art, entertainment, food, and film. One of the amazing events for individuals who love the fresh and vibrant colors, themes, and opportunities for socializing is Thursday Night Thing. This one-of-a-kind festival is hosted three times each year by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD), with the next event scheduled for March 5, 2015 from 7 to 10pm.
MCASD is committed to exploring every genre of art through which we speak. Whether it’s dance or performance, clay or paper, metal work or mixed media, don’t miss your chance to experience it all. The exhibitions at the MCASD offer visitors a chance to take the pulse of our thriving, multi-layered and complex society, while interacting with local San Diego artists in person.
For the upcoming MCASD event, El Anatsui’s Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works will be the star of the show. Anatsui uses found materials to create sculpture on a massive and breathtaking scale. Artist Keenan Harsten will also give a performance that beautifully illustrates his sound sculptures—an innovative and exciting form of art, in which you’ll be invited to participate.
The TNT also invites visitors to participate in the creation of bright and beautiful hot air balloons. As a part of Collective Magpie’s group initiative with children in Tijuana and San Diego, these hot air balloons will be featured at the New Children’s Museum and will be released along the California-Mexico border later this year.
You can attend lectures and performances given by the most cutting edge artists in all genres of the current milieu, mingle with other lovers of art and culture, engage in fun interactive activities, and tour the recently opened exhibitions. Bites from organic food truck Green Truck, as well as Stone Brewing Co. beers and cocktails by 619 Vodka and Euphoric Tequila top off the amazing offerings of TNT.
TNT is locally supported by radio, television, and print media, as well as contributions from several community-oriented foundations, but it’s your participation they love the most, so click here for more information about this favorite Downtown San Diego event and get your tickets ($10) before they sell out!
