This group exhibition surveys photography and includes several different takes on the medium.

Works by Richard Slechta, a composer of chromogenic photograms that use light as a vehicle for expression, and Sol Hill who skillfully distorts his images to discover new narratives called "Missightments."

Also on display are photographic storytelling pieces by Michele McCain, who blurs the line between reality and fiction in her digitally collaged works.

This exhibition will also honor the late Major Morris, a local photojournalist whose lens captured several decades of American history and culture.

Along our theme of celebrating California artists, we will feature a select group of San Diego County’s own well-respected local photographers, highlighting their distinct approaches to photography.

This vast range of work from historic and traditional to current trends will expand our idea of what photography is and can be.

For the Center’s annual Día de los Muertos celebration, the Tower Gallery will display a special ofrenda (offering) in honor of Mr. John Medina, a passionate and beloved educator who taught in the Escondido Union School District for 20 years. Mr. Medina’s former students will assist in the development and design of the altar, under the instruction of teaching artist, Daniel Martinez.

To purchase tickets, call the box office at (800)988-4253, which is open every Tuesday through Saturday from 12 - 6 p.m., and Sundays from 12 - 5 p.m.
