MCASD Announces "Shore Thing," Extended Summer Hours in La Jolla


Looking for a “shore thing” this summer? Thursday nights just got more interesting. We're offering extended summer hours at our La Jolla location, staying open late—until 8 PM—every Thursday evening from June 13 through August 29 (with the exception of July 4).

Visitors can tour the galleries late into the evening, enjoy cocktails with friends on the oceanfront terrace (cash bar available), and picnic in the Edwards Sculpture Garden. Several food trucks will be parked at the Museum every Thursday evening. Some evenings will also include exhibition tours, bands or DJs, films, artist talks, and hands-on creative workshops. See a full listing of dates, and check back soon for more information on each evening's activities.

On view throughout the summer will be Approximately Infinite Universe, an exhibition inspired by science fiction and the possibility of alternate realities, featuring work by seventeen emerging and mid-career artists. The exhibition runs from June 8 through September 1, 2013.

There is no additional cost to the program outside of standard admission rates: $10 adults; $5 students/seniors; free for MCASD Members, military and their families, and ages 25 and under. The third Thursday evening of every month will continue to be free of charge as part of the Museum’s existing Free Third Thursday Evenings.

Special thanks to Shore Thing event sponsors: La Jolla Light, KPBS, Stone Brewing Co., SIX ONE NINE Vodka, and Brick & Bell Café.
