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, February 17 from 7 to 9 p.m. Guests will have the free opportunity to view the stunning large-scale abstract paintings of Bulgarian-born artist Iva Gueorgueiva, as well as the 100 in. x 150 in. work she created during her residency.
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 free chance to view Iva Gueorguieva's exhibit.
Additionally, SPECIMEN, the store project at Lux curated by art dealer Mark Quint and artist Adam Belt, will be open for business during the event. Visitors 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 gifts.
