Lux Art Institute, the first LEED-certified art museum in San Diego County, hosts its monthly Lux@Night – a free evening of art, wine, music and merriment – on Wednesday, October 21 from 7 to 9 p.m. Sculptor Elizabeth Turk, whose residency officially ended on October 3, will return for the night as Lux’s special guest to answer questions about her work and speak with visitors who may have missed the opportunity to meet her before her original departure.
For the upcoming Lux@Night, Lux is also proud to present DJ Morgan Young, spinning cosmic, electronic global beats from multiple decades and genres that defy easy categorization.
The 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, an opportunity to engage with the resident artist and view her stunning exhibit before it closes on October 31. Her show consists of breathtaking and delicate marble sculpture and paper works, as well as the marble piece she had been carving during her residency for her “Collars” series.
This 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.
