Join us in the Center Museum for the opening reception of the Niki de Saint Phalle: Mythical California exhibition featuring models, sculptures, photographs, furniture, and more. Together, we honor this vibrant 20th century artist and celebrate the fifteen-year anniversary of her gift to Escondido, the sculpture garden, Queen Califia’s Magical Circle.

Also on view to celebrate and enjoy is the work of local California artists Wick Alexander, Christie Beniston, Doris Bittar, Robin Brailsford, Kim Emerson, Katherine England, Cherrie La Porte, Leslie Perlis, Renee Richetts, Cheryl Tall, and Jean Wells featured in Inspired: A Mosaic Invitational.

Eva Struble, will show her work, 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.

The event costs $10 and includes lite bites and no host bar.

7:00 PM Special remarks from Bloum Cardenas, granddaughter of Niki de Saint Phalle
Enjoy the CD debut, “This Is New, I Like It”, from Swedish music producer Viktor Sjöberg, created for Niki de Saint Phalle’s work: Californian Diary (Black is Different).

Purchase tickets online or at the door.
