This Thursday! View my newest installation at the SDSU Downtown Gallery...

Attend a tour at 6:00 or 7:00 and engage in an interactive activity in front of my newest installation, It's Immaterial, Products of Invisible Labor. I don't want to ruin the surprise, but I will say that we will be making sounds! Come join. It will be a memorable and fun event.

In conjunction with the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCASD), visual and performing arts converge at MCASD's new after-hours offering: Downtown at Sundown. On the third Thursday of every month from 5 to 8 PM, local, partners Stone Brewing Co. Store on Kettner, The Flight Path, and SDSU Downtown Gallery join MCASD to welcome you to the downtown neighborhood of Core-Columbia.

Enjoy free admission and guided tours of exhibitions at SDSU Downtown Gallery and MCASD, located just one block north of the museum. Take advantage of $5 drink and appetizer specials at The Flight Path Wine Bar & Bistro and Stone Brewing Company, next door to the museum on Kettner.

Energy: Made in Form, a group exhibition exploring the intangible concept of energy, visualized through the creative process. I will be exhibiting a new sculptural installation. Opening reception taking place 6-8pm February 4, 2016 at SDSU Downtown Gallery on 725 W. Broadway. DJ Professor Shadow will be spinning sounds inspired by our exhibition theme.

Free and open to the public.

Energy: Made in Form is inspired by San Diego State University’s current campus-wide Common  Experience theme 'Experience Energy'. From 19th century technology to handmade craft and the fantasy of science fiction, the exhibition explores the intangible concept of energy, visualized through the creative process. Varying approaches examine the amount of energy required in creating art, energy as a social issue, and energy as a state of being. Made in Form brings together works by SDSU School of Art + Design students and faculty with regional artists from California and Arizona.
