Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego says
Please join students and families from both La Jolla Country Day School and Wilson Middle School during the March 16 Downtown at Sundown as we showcase artwork the students created through MCASD’s Extended School Partnership (ESP) program.

Students in the Art and Design Class and Art Club from Woodrow Wilson Middle School explored and held discussions about exhibitions at MCASD Downtown, then created a unique body of work responding to their experience. Working in a wide array of mediums, the students created work that reflects their interest in personal narrative and identity.

Students from the Art & Technology class of La Jolla Country Day School combined techniques they developed in their classroom with inspiration from MCASD exhibitions. They focused on art as a vehicle for communicating messages to society, considering questions such as whether a successful artwork presents the viewer with one singular and straightforward message, or if the viewer is taken on a journey.

This event is held during Downtown at Sundown and is free to attend. Exhibitions on view at MCASD Downtown during this month's event are Dimensions of Black: A Collaboration with the San Diego African American Museum of Fine Arts; Jennifer Steinkamp: Madame Curie (pictured); and Tristano di Robilant. Exhbition tours will take place at 5:30 and 6:45 PM. Pictured are students within Jennifer Steinkamp's Madame Curie installation.
