Lo and Behold

| January 8, 2013 | Parties

THE PARTY The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the San Diego Museum of Art and the Timken Museum of Art lifted the curtain on the art triumvirate Behold, America! All of the city’s art lovers turned up for the occasion, beginning at MCASD in La Jolla, where old-fashioneds and basil gimlets flowed. Afterward, partygoers boarded a shuttle to continue the art hop to Balboa Park. THE SCENE The crowd included a who’s who of local art patrons, including Nancy and Matt Browar, the couple behind the “Murals of La Jolla” art series. At the Timken, live jazz set a chill vibe while exhibition curator Amy Galpin took guests on a tour of the institution’s still-life-filled Forms exhibit. THE HIGHLIGHT “Instant House,” by Vito Acconci at MCASD, was a standout. The interactive piece activates when the viewer sits on a metal swing at the center of four walls, with the weight causing the walls to be raised. Talk about raising the roof!
