Downtown at Sundown

Thursday, Apr 18, 2019 - 5:00 PM-8:00 PM

Visual and performing arts converge at MCASD’s after-hours offering, Downtown at Sundown. On the third Thursday of every month, enjoy free Museum admission and exhibition tours, DJ-spun tunes, free entry at SDSU Downtown Gallery, drink specials at the adjacent Stone Brewing Company Store, and so much more.

At MCASD, tour the 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, celebrate the opening of the exhibition In Transit. The exhibition takes a look at the deeper discussion of what constitutes citizenship in the wake of the enormous migrations into Europe over recent years. Mix and mingle with artist George Awde and guest curator Peggy Sue Amison as you enjoy special performances by students and faculty from the School of Music and Dance. 

Hungry for more? Enjoy happy hour specials available next door at the Stone Brewing Company Store or dine at our neighborhood restaurant partner, AAHARN by Koon Thai, and enjoy re-entry to the event when you're done!

Grab your friends and head downtown to explore all the Core Columbia neighborhood has to offer!
