Downtown at Sundown - CANCELLED

Thursday, Mar 19, 2020 - 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.

The March Downtown at Sundown is your last chance to see the exhibition Bound to the Earth: Art, Materiality, and the Natural WorldDrawn from the Museum’s permanent collection, Bound to the Earth addresses and reframes the landscape in relationship to broader social and cultural contexts. Take a tour with MCASD Gallery Educators at 5:30 and 6:45 PM.

At 6 PM, join An Outside Perspective talk featuring Christopher Peregrin, Reserve Manager at the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve. He will talk about his most recent project, the Border Field Entry Improvement Plan. Serving as the primary access point for the southern portion of the Tijuana River Valley, the entrance to Border Field State Park is a culturally significant location on the International Border that also functions as a gateway to vast natural open spaces. The goal of this project is to create a space where people can not only park, but gather and enjoy the natural beauty of the Tijuana Estuary and Watershed surrounding them and understand the challenges associated with sedimentation and trash in the Tijuana River Valley. MCASD is pleased to present a series of talks featuring distinguished scientists who will discuss issues related to climate change in conjunction with the exhibition Oscar Romo: Recovered Stream.

Hungry for more? Enjoy happy hour specials next door at the Stone Brewing Company Store or dine at our neighborhood restaurant partner AAHARN by Koon Thai.

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