San Diego Museum of Art presents the Summer Salon Series 2012
July 13, 2012 by James
The San Diego Museum of Art has begun its Summer Salon Series, which explores historical fiction and information dissemination every Friday night through August 31, 2012. The line-up of experts consists of poets, artists, performers and lecturers who investigate the sources of our news, who controls access to various sources of information, and how artists may use fiction to illustrate stories and create awareness and perceptions of issues.
A focus is placed on historical images and myths that have an impact on current social and cultural opinions and positioning. Discussion of the ethical use of propaganda is part of the series.
The link between 20th century postmodernist views and inquiry are compared to 15th century art. The San Diego Museum of Art uses this venue as an opportunity to present a series of their in-house version of the ‘salon’, which affords art and culture enthusiasts a location to meet, explore opinions, and discover history while enjoying the performances of the artists. Projects, workshops and demonstrations are part of many of the scheduled events.
San Diego printing companies provide promotional materials such as catalog and poster printing. With various artists and experts scheduled throughout the summer series, as well as different programs, local print companies are very likely to be active in providing ongoing printing services.
The San Diego Museum of Art offers many other artistic experiences suitable for all ages. The museum is located at 1450 El Prado, Balboa Park. Directions and more information, as well as ticket purchase, options can be found on their website.
