Prescription Living

This week I am lucky enough to be part of the Summer Salon Series at the San Diego Museum of Art (SDMA) in Balboa Park, which is an on-going event coordinated by the curators at SDMA in conjunction with my friend Dave White's art space, Agitprop.
Every Thursday night since May they have opened the doors to the museum for extended hours to showcase some of San Diego's emerging artists for events that aren't typically shown in this sort of "traditional" arena.

On Thursday August 26th from 5pm till 9pm, I will be co-hosting an interactive project there with my good friend
Josh Bellfy. As a sort of spin on 'Lucy's advice booth', we are encouraging friends, families and strangers to come out and have a quick conversation with us, where you will receive a free numbered edition piece of advice, customized to your specific question and presented in an authentic Prescription container. We are calling the event Prescription Living, with hopes that everyone will come as you are and help us, help you.

There are several other events happening that night with more local Artists, in addition to the museum's current collections, including the new Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit which is now open. There is a small fee to get into the museum ($12 adults/ $8 students), but every person that attends allows the museum to see that the new generation of 'Artists' is not limited to those with a degree, background, or trust fund to exploit, but simply a collection of everyday people who are interested in making a small difference in their surroundings, and in the lives of others.

As a San Diego native, I am especially honored to be involved in this beautiful historical building, doing something so contemporary. I hope that you can make it!
