Tour MCASD's newest exhibition, Trevor Paglen: Sites Unseen, at 5:30 and 6:45 PMThis mid-career survey originated at the Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM) and features more than 100 works by the MacArthur award-winning artist. The exhibition is the first to present Paglen's early photographic series alongside his recent sculptural objects and new work with artificial intelligence. Stop by MCASD's galleries across the street to celebrate a special Showcase of student artwork created by participants in MCASD's Extended School Partnership program.

At the SDSU Downtown Gallery, see the exhibition Futures Past and Present, featuring work by faculty and students from the San Diego State University School of Art + Design. Guest speakers will include Mary Cale Wilson (Lecturer, School of Art + Design) and David Cline (Assoc. Professor of Art and Digital Humanities), who will talk about the future of dinnerware in ceramics and virtual reality.
