The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) joins forces with local tastemakers to host the third annual Summer Solstice Soiree on Friday, June 21, 2013. This event, hosted by Avant Garde, the Museum’s young patrons’ group, serves as an important fundraiser for the Museum while bringing together art enthusiasts and artists to toast the upcoming summer season. Event proceeds will benefit education programming at MCASD, where students of all ages explore contemporary art through lively conversations and hands-on experiences.
This year’s Summer Solstice Soiree is unique in that it will also allow the audience direct interaction with many of the artists featured in "The Very Large Array: San Diego/Tijuana Artists" in the MCA Collection. Representing five decades of collecting, this expansive group show of Museum acquisitions highlights many of the region’s most beloved and accomplished artists. The exhibition features more than 100 artists, several dozen of whom will attend the function.
There are two ways to enjoy the Summer Solstice Soiree:
Artful Dining Ticket: $150 for Avant Garde Members / $175 General Tickets
