Cultural Arts Programs at OMA
Oceanside Museum of Art is not only a place where you can view stimulating contemporary art exhibitions, we also have a dynamic cultural arts schedule featuring concerts, lectures, family art days and more. On the calendar for April and May is "Rock the Night with KPRI/102.1" on April 16th from 7-9pm, "Springtime at the Getty" on April 23rd, "Fragrance Forum" on April 30th from 7-9pm, "Free Family Art Day" on May 3rd from 1-4pm, "Vigilucci's Jazz at the Museum with the David Patrone Jazz Quartet" on May 7th from 7-9pm and "Art After Dark" on May 22nd from 7-10pm. 2009 is jam packed with fun events that reach out to everyone. I will attest to the fact that I love the museum and the exciting events we present, especially with so much on the calendar. I am particularly excited about “Art After Dark” on May 22nd that will feature The DJ Eddie-G spinning ‘70s disco classics.
The cultural programming surrounding our exhibitions gives members and guests the chance to deepen their experience with the museum. We’re here to educate and spark creativity and wonder for visitors that walk through the museum doors all year. After all, as Einstein once said, "Imagination is more important than intelligence," and what better place to stimulate creative energy than a museum. During the concert or lecture that you attend in the near future, make sure to spend time in the galleries exploring the three exhibitions on view: Lowbrow Art: Nine San Diego Pop Surrealists, Institutional Wellbeing: An Olfactory Plan for Oceanside Museum of Art, and Commesso Made in America: Gemstone Fine Art.
