Niki de Saint Phalle: Mythical California

Internationally known artist Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) created several larger than life works of art about the myths and legends of California. Through maquettes, models, sculptures, photographs, furniture, blueprints, and video we honor this vibrant 20th century artist.

Join in celebration of the fifteen-year anniversary of the construction of her sculptural garden Queen Califia’s Magical Circle and the series’ she developed while living in San Diego.

Exhibiting Concurrently
Inspired: A Mosaic Invitational

Recent works by local artists who share a commonality in media but differ in their subject matter focus will make more noticeable their attention to detail and the obsessive nature of mosaic.

Eva Struble: Cover Crop

With a combination of materials, Struble’s artwork treats distressed urban and natural landscapes, whose seemingly serene atmosphere belies the socio-political and environmental issues at their heart. Created on top of unfinished canvases from various periods, she adds imagery referencing small farms in the San Diego area, blending in previous scenes of her everyday life, television stills, textile patterns, and landscapes.
