San Diego Art Institute: A Moveable Feast.

Curated by the San Diego Mesa College Museum Studies Program for ART San Diego 2015 Contemporary Art Fair
The San Diego Mesa College Museum Studies program and the San Diego Art Institute have teamed up to showcase the work of emerging and established artists.
A feast of visual works by artist members of SDAI and San Diego Mesa College students and faculty will be featured at this premiere contemporary arts venue. The booth will establish a connection with SDAI’s space in Balboa Park, highlighting works by its affiliates.
The collaboration between these two organizations is rooted in our mutual interests to promote artists, exhibit their works, and network with the San Diego community.
Museum Studies students will be curating the exhibit, managing the booth and focusing on outreach during the art fair.
