Architecture of Jubilation: The Art and Vision

Exploring the Architecture of Jubilation: The Art and Vision of James Hubbell

James Hubbell, a globally renowned luminary with a career spanning over 70 years, is at the heart of this thought-provoking exhibition. Known for his profound connection with nature, Hubbell’s diverse portfolio includes sculpture, painting, stained glass, and architectural design.

Over the years, Hubbell has worked closely with communities in Southern California, Tijuana, and Baja California, which seamlessly aligns with the World Design Capital 2024’s focus on the San Diego-Tijuana region.

His “Architecture of Jubilation” exhibition invites you to create a world where art seamlessly integrates into everyday life, reflecting his belief in the transformative power of aesthetics and philosophy.

Come to understand Hubbell’s vision and discover the symbiotic relationship between art, nature, and community.

The opening reception will be held on March 9 from 5 PM to 7 PM.

The exhibition at the San Diego Central Library from March 9, 2024, to July 28, 2024, will focus on Hubbell’s architecture, which was inspired by and built throughout San Diego County and Baja California, along with select artworks that span his career.
