Open Walls Project
If you live in the San Diego area or are planning on coming for the show, keep an eye out for the 10 art billboards that will be up, courtesy of the Open Walls Project. Showcasing the work of past San Diego Art Prize recipients, this project titled [META.MORPHOSIS] is the second public installation organized by the Open Walls Project, which works with building owners and community partners to create large-scale exhibitions throughout urban areas, seeking to transform typical commercial spaces and underutilized areas while simultaneously introducing the public to the work of local emerging artists.
As you can see, we've got a spectacular lineup of programming and events for you this November. Purchase your tickets today and get ready for an unforgettable, art-filled weekend.
