New Art Exhibitions & More Happening This Month at ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station
This February, ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station is giving you even more reasons to fall in love with the arts! New and old multi-media art exhibitions are on display throughout the arts and culture hub, and you’re invited to embark on an art-filled adventure.
New Command Center Gallery Display | Now through March 15
Artistic works from ARTS DISTRICT’s very own artists are now on display in the Command Center Gallery.
Celebrating the talent and creativity of resident artists, the exhibit features the works of nine different ARTS DISTRICT artists whose work appears in the February 2024 issue of American Art Collector, a national publication focused on visual arts.
The exhibit will be on display in the lobby of the Dick Laub Command Center and is open daily from 11 AM to 4 PM.
New Exhibits at Visions Museum of Textile Art | Now through April 27
Visions Museum of Textile Art is bustling with a variety of brand-new exhibits on display!
Budapest-based fiber artist Eszter Bornemisza recently unveiled his new exhibit titled “Sense of Place.” Using recycled paper and textiles printed with fragmented, distorted city plans, the exhibit symbolizes the evolution of our societal narratives alongside evolving urban structures.
Four contemporary art quilters—Deb Cashatt, Susan Lapham, Niraja Lorenz, and Irene Roderick—come together to present a fiber arts exhibition titled “Tiny Pieces, Vast Visions.”
Through the exhibition, the artists invite you to explore the boundless possibilities of ‘piecing,’ or the practice of assembling and sewing different pieces of fabric together.
Merging personal creativity with the age-old tradition of quilt making, Austin-based fiber artist Irene Roderick presents “The Guardian Quilts.” Calling upon viewers to contemplate art as both functional and beautiful, her pieces challenge the perception of quilts as solely utilitarian.
All three exhibitions will be on display at Visions Museum of Textile Art now through Saturday, April 27.
New Installations at the Station Installation | On Display Now!
The NTC Foundation invites you to stop by the latest art installation in ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station.
As part of the Installations at the Station program, the Art in Public Places Committee (AiPP) selected Kline Swonger to present this groundbreaking installation titled Water and Words, drawing inspiration from water, memories, and light.
Flowing throughout our lives, water serves as a profound and emotionally evoking element, carrying the shared memories of humanity, animals, and the environment on their respective journeys through life.
Meant to visually represent water, the installation is composed of thin, ribbon-like structures suspended high above and inscribed with words associated with memories of water.
As the sunlight peeks through, the silhouette of the embedded text will be cast upon the floor, revealing and concealing the messages during different times of day.
Kline Swonger’s Water and Words installation joins the eight art installations and will be on display near Barracks 2.
Building 178 Groundbreaking
Renovations to Building 178 are now underway!
NTC Foundation and Cygnet Theatre have officially broken ground and will transform historic Naval Building 178 at ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station into a contemporary, permanent home for Cygnet Theatre that will bring engaging artistic performances to the arts and culture hub.
Announced in 2022, The Joan and Irwin Jacobs Performing Arts Center—which will now also be referred to as “The Joan” in honor of Joan Jacobs, lead donor of this landmark project and strong supporter of San Diego’s arts community—will include a 289-seat proscenium theatre and a 150-seat flexible studio space, as well as state-of-the-art back-of-house support spaces.
Cygnet Theatre and NTC Foundation are relying on philanthropic community support to fulfill the remainder of the $43.5M total needed to complete this project. For more information, click here.
Around The Way Girl Gallery Exhibition | Now through April 30 (EXTENDED)
ARTS DISTRICT invites you to stop by Delana Delgado’s gallery exhibit in Gallery 201 (2820 Roosevelt Rd, 2nd Floor).
Showcasing photography in ARTS DISTRICT for the first time, Puerto Rican photographer Delana Delgado is excited to showcase her new exhibit, titled Around The Way Girl.
A San Diego native, Delana’s lens captures a glimpse into her upbringing and the profound influence of culture, women, tradition, and la comunidad on her artistic journey. Preferring unposed or candid moments, Delana shoots on 35mm analog cameras as a representation of the fleeting moments.
Her solo debut invites art lovers to intimately explore not just her own life but also the various communities that resonate with her work. Curated by Dinah Poellnitz, the exhibit will be on display in Gallery 201 through April 30, 2024.
