This weekend brings outdoor concerts, a tribute to musical divas and a gender-neutral art show.

Millennial Pink Opening Reception

Visual Arts

San Diego Art Institute presents Millennial Pink, an exhibition that celebrates the evolution of queer images.

Shifting away from 1980s and 1990s LGBTQ art that focused on the pain and tragedy of the AIDS crisis, this group show highlights beautiful imagery that embraces sexual fluidity and gender neutrality.

Along with the exhibit, there will also be Millennial Pink-themed events including a documentary screening, a dance party and a storytelling night.

Details: Opening reception is 6 p.m., Saturday. Exhibit continues through Sept. 3. San Diego Art Institute, 1439 El Prado, Balboa Park. Free to $5.
