Art Museum Day
Monday, May 18 > 11 AM-5 PM

Come enjoy free admission and special programming all day long as we celebrate Art Museum Day with the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD), coinciding with International Museum Day.
College students (and anyone else in need of R&R!) are invited to take a break from their stressful week at Finals Escape: College Afternoon with food trucks, music, yoga, and exhibition tours all day!
MCASD Downtown will offer free exhibition tours of Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui, bites from Currywurst food truck, and live performances by UCSD student band I literally could not feel my entire limb.
At MCASD La Jolla, guests will enjoy free tours of Dear Nemesis, Nicole Eisenman 1993-2013 and SARAH CAIN blue in your body, red when it hits the air, fare from La California food truck, live acoustic music by James Ledbetter, and art-making activities with Project Artivism.
Yoga and meditation sessions will be led by Raja Yoga at both Museum locations as well, with the session at MCASD La Jolla beginning at 11:30 AM on the outdoor terrace overlooking the Edwards Family Sculpture Garden. The downtown session will begin at 2 PM in the Berglund Room on the second floor of MCASD Downtown. B.Y.O.M. (bring your own mat) and arrive early!
BONUS: The college with the most attendees at Finals Escape will receive free tickets to MCASD’s upcoming TNT (Thursday Night Thing) on July 16 at the Museum’s downtown location!
