In 1994, Pacific Rim Park (PRP) and Ilan-Lael Foundation (ILF), under the artistic direction of artist James Hubbell, launched a global conversation between San Diego and Pacific Rim nations exploring the transformative power of art and the artistic process.

Hubbell’s unique expression of art diplomacy resulted in public art parks built by architecture students in seven Pacific Rim cities. Through these shared art-making experiences, the diverse people and nations of the Pacific transcended language barriers and cultural differences to explore and celebrate their common humanity.

Pacific Rim Park and Ilan-Lael Foundation will bring the participants of the Pacific Rim Park project to San Diego to continue exploring the role of art in international relations. The 2017 Gateway Conversations will welcome representatives from the eastern and western Pacific Rims along with members from San Diego and Tijuana to continue the conversation about the role of art in public places and its ability to bridge cultures.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending. Check local COVID-19 restrictions and updates.
