NEW VENUE | Located in scenic Balboa Park, the 38,000 Balboa Park Activity Center was designed by award-winning architect Rob Wellington Quigley.. Beautiful landscaping, public art and spacious outdoor plazas at the north and south end of the building provide excellent sites for the fourth edition of ART SAN DIEGO. The Balboa Park Activity Center is conveniently accessible to downtown, major freeways and offers ample free parking. The building is located in walking distance to 26 major museums. Our location allows us to collaborate with many of San Diego’s leading cultural institutions including the Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego Museum of Art, The Mingei International Museum, and the Timken Museum – providing cultural exchange and “after-hours”
VIP PROGRAM | This year our location in Balboa Park will give us the opportunity to expand our VIP program in conjunction with our museum member partners in the park. Private tours of top collector’s homes, curated-led tours of museums, artist talks, cocktail receptions and many other exclusive events are planned to enrich the experience for our VIP guests. Our luxury car sponsor will provide complimentary shuttle to and from museums for VIP guests throughout the park.
ART SAN DIEGO still a young fair, offers a strong diversity of exhibitors and hopes to attract a new generation of art collectors by introducing work that can be purchased within the limitations of almost any budget. A strong emphasis is placed on providing stimulating conversation about art acquisition, educational opportunities for both novice and experienced collectors, and personal talks with artists, film-makers, and designers.
