Art San Diego is more than just an art show—it’s an art experience. In addition to showcasing contemporary and sophisticated works from artists and galleries from all over the world, Art San Diego features special programs that provide a dynamic experience for attendees, allowing them to view and interact with works by preeminent international artists, experience leading museums “outside the museum walls,” and enjoy exhibitions that showcase the thriving art landscape of San Diego and beyond.


Now in its ninth year, Art San Diego brings back its renowned lineup of multifaceted programs showcasing artistic expression and diversity. Programs are specially curated for the show and informed by a common curatorial theme. Site-specific Art Labs, panel discussions, the San Diego Art Prize, and a selection Spotlight Artists and an emerging LaunchPad Artist will be among the many touchstones throughout the show’s duration. Don’t miss this year’s exciting display of cutting-edge talent!

2017 Curatorial Theme

For 2017, the Art San Diego show theme is [FUSION]: the merging of artistic mediums, of exhibitors and collectors, and of the countless galleries and artists who come together to showcase their work. It informs each of our special installations, talks, and events.

Art Labs

Art Labs feature specially curated projects by leading galleries, art institutions, and art collectives within the show.

Spotlight Artists

The Spotlight Artists Program provides collectors a focused look at several cutting-edge artists who will each be creating a site-specific exhibition. This year’s artists will be announced soon.

LaunchPad Program

Every year, the LaunchPad Program provides a young, unrepresented artist the opportunity to present a site-specific exhibition within the show.

San Diego Art Prize

The San Diego Art Prize is a cash prize with exhibition opportunities at Art San Diego that spotlights established San Diego artists and emerging artists whom they choose to exhibit with and mentor. The San Diego Art Prize is awarded each season to artists whose outstanding achievements in the field of visual arts merit the recognition.
