From Setup to Showtime: Art San Diego Premieres Tonight
Excitement has been building for months—and we got the show built at the Del Mar Fairgrounds just in time for the Opening Night Preview Party! Do you have your tickets yet to the hottest art event in Southern California?
Step onto the red carpet and into the spotlight, and create a memory you’ll never forget. Take your picture in front of the Art San Diego backdrop (#ArtSanDiego), and break the barrier between the artwork and reality as you enter the Wyland Center through Sarah Stieber’s ribbon-wrapped tunnel. Once inside, enjoy Louis Jadot wines and hors d’oeuvres; groove to the sophisticated sounds of Third Coast Jazz, one of San Diego’s most sought-after groups; and be the first to preview and purchase the artwork on display at Art San Diego from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Opening Night Preview Party.
In addition to showcasing innovative works from more than 65 exhibitors, Art San Diego is featuring an exciting slate of programs specially curated for the show. Here’s what you can look forward to over the next couple of days.
