Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego says
"Part open house and part happy hour, Downtown at Sundown is your ticket to an evening of all-access culture."
– Karla Peterson, The San Diego Union-Tribune

On the third Thursday of every month from 5 to 8 PM, Downtown at Sundown offers free entry at MCASD Downtown, exhibition tours, and DJ-spun tunes. The next event, on December 15, will serve as the opening for three new exhibitions: Dimensions of Black: A Collaboration with the San Diego African American Museum of Fine Art; Jennifer Steinkamp: Madame Curie; and Tristano di Robilant.

In addition, enjoy free entry at SDSU Downtown Gallery, drink specials at the adjacent Stone Brewing Company Store and The Flight Path Wine Bar & Bistro, a food truck and more.

Literary and performing arts non-profit So Say We All will perform at the SDSU Downtown Gallery from 6 to 7 PM. In conjunction with their current exhibition of work by Sandow Birk, Depravities & Monuments, So Say We All will present an hour of storytelling that reflects the themes present in the artist's work.

MCASD galleries will offer exhibition tours at 5:30 and 6:45 PM. Xcerpts will meet at 6:30 and 7:30 PM to discuss reflections on Tristano di Robilant's piece Proust in Venice (Indaco), and a screening of Erick Msumanje’s film, Kibacha, will take place at 6:15 and 7:15 PM. Kibacha examines painful family histories and questions the colonial gaze on Black bodies and the African continent. The screening will be followed by a discussion.
