Selected works by artists teaching at colleges around San Diego County are now on display at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido.
Campus Creatives: Featuring San Diego’s Fine Art Faculty showcases pieces created by 49 teaching artists from 14 local institutions, ranging from smaller community colleges to San Diego State University, University of San Diego, and UC San Diego.
I headed up to Escondido today to experience this mostly contemporary art.
The museum galleries contain many unusual and experimental pieces that utilize a surprising variety of materials. As one might expect from college faculty, certain social, environmental and political themes were plentiful. I also saw examples of arresting beauty and art for art’s sake.
Some of the pieces obviously required a good deal of time and effort. I was stunned by a couple of large, very complex woven tapestries. You’ll see one in the upcoming photographs.
I asked the friendly gentleman at the museum’s front counter what he liked best about the exhibition. The variety, he told me.
I concur one hundred percent!
Go check it out!
Meanwhile, enjoy a few examples.
Campus Creatives: Featuring San Diego’s Fine Art Faculty will be on public view through May 15, 2022.
