Lux Art Institute, the first LEED-certified art museum in San Diego County, will host its monthly Lux@Night – a free evening of art, wine, live music and merriment – on Wednesday, December 16 from 7 to 9 p.m.
It is the last free opportunity to view the mesmerizing charcoal self-portraits and still lifes of resident artist Susan Hauptman before her show closes on January 9, 2010.
For the upcoming Lux@Night, Lux is also proud to present the ethereal vocals of San Diego-based indie/folk singer, Dawn Mitschele, in a special live performance in-studio.
This festive event is sponsored by Supervisor Pam Slater-Price and the County of San Diego.
Amidst Lux’s five-acre site that overlooks the San Elijo Lagoon and an expansive wildlife preserve that stretches to the Pacific Ocean, enjoy a glass of wine or Stone beer, conversation, and the last free chance to view Susan Hauptman’s exhibit of enigmatic charcoal studies.
Additionally, SPECIMEN, the store project at Lux curated by Mark Quint and Adam Belt, will be open for business during the event. Guests will be able to browse through a myriad of unique items devoted to the exploration of science, art, nature and adventure and pick up one-of-a-kind holiday gifts.
*Lux@Night is a 21 and over event, and there is a $5 suggested donation.
Lux Art Institute is located at 1550 S. El Camino Real in Encinitas, Calif. Parking is available in the Sanderling-Waldorf School parking lot and in posted parking zones along El Camino Real.
