Excited for Viva la Revolucion

Image- thegiant.org

For art to be muraled around San Diego and incorporated into an exhibit is genius. The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego’s (MCASD) new exhibit Viva la Revolucion: A dialogue with the Urban Landscape is opening up on Saturday night and I can’t wait to see the pieces that complement the public art already scattered throughout San Diego.  It is like a little treasure hunt around San Diego. I have already seen the space invader mural on the abandoned Art Center downtown done by Invader (how appropriate). Sezio, a non-profit artist organization did a nice blog post on the other murals around San Diego. I have yet to see the Shepard Fairey Mural between University and Washington on 5th. Shepard Fairey is known for the famous Obama Poster “Yes We Did” and the “Obey” art. I have a soft spot for good graffiti art. I am sure there will be more art revealed but for now the only artist I know other than Shepard and Invader doing mural work is Os Gemeos.  The opening is this Saturday, July 17th at the Downtown location. It is free to MCASD members (I am a proud member) or $20 for a ticket.

    I saw the space invader too. I thought it was just really good graffiti and would soon be taken down. I’m glad to know it’s part of a project. See, you really DO introduce me to the secrets of SD!
