For the seventh year, ART SAN DIEGO Contemporary Art Show will return to San Diego's Balboa Park Activity Center for a weekend of special events. Taking place from Thursday, November 5 to Sunday, November 8, the much-anticipated show is exploring the ever-evolving landscape in San Diego with this year’s theme of [META.MORPHOSIS]. We are raffling off 2 VIP tickets to the exhibit's opening night preview (a $150 value), so read on for all the details and be sure to enter.

ART SAN DIEGO is the city’s only contemporary fine art show and has become one of the leading cultural events in Southern California. This year's theme, which delves into the artistic history of San Diego’s past, honors its present, and gestures confidently towards its future, will include several special programs, including the LaunchPad Program, Art Labs, and the Spotlight Artist Program. 

“ART SAN DIEGO remains committed to providing unique exhibition opportunities that integrate local artists and institutions,” said Ann Berchtold, show founder and director. “With the Timeline exhibition we will be depicting a retrospective of the past and present San Diego Art Prize recipients.”

In conjunction with ART SAN DIEGO’s [META.MORPHOSIS] theme, the special exhibition, The Timeline Project, is a wall installation measuring 120 feet long and 8 feet high built by ECOR Noble Environmental Design, with the graphic design created by students from the Media Design School of Digital Arts at NewSchool of Architecture & Design.

ART SAN DIEGO will launch the second exhibition of the Open Walls Project, which places local artists on billboards throughout San Diego in October and November. ART SAN DIEGO will also feature a special exhibition by the 2015 San Diego Art Prize recipients Wendy Maruyama with emerging artist Peter Scheidt, as well as Roy McMackin with emerging artist Kevin Inman.

The LaunchPad Program will feature Brittany Segal, a San Diego-based artist who studied fine art sculpture at The Academy of Art in San Francisco. In recent years, her vast collection of work, including numerous commissions, has gained her significant recognition for her paintings and small, detailed drawings. Her work ranges from abstract oil pieces to acrylic graphics works. Her drawings range from purposefully yet hauntingly illegible writings to intricate, small designs. Segal’s recent works have been displayed at SCOPE New York through Soze gallery and the ACD Gallery Pop Up show. She also graced the cover of Entityy Magazine as the issue’s featured artist.

Founded in 2009 as the first and only contemporary art show in San Diego, ART SAN DIEGO is now an annual showcase, featuring not only San Diego’s most talented artists, but also leading artists from around the globe. The show has enriched the city each year with compelling, site and theme specific art projects, art talks and panel discussions, a selection of dynamic and cutting-edge film, video and new media works and a curated selection of emerging and spotlight artists. More than 60 galleries from the U.S., Canada, Europe, Latin America and Asia will showcase paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, videos and cutting-edge multimedia artworks during ART SAN DIEGO 2015.

Tickets for ART SAN DIEGO are priced at $25 online/$30 at-the-door for general admission. For opening night attendance, tickets are priced at $75/$85 at-the-door. Proceeds from the opening night ticket sales go directly to the Museum of Contemporary Art.
