Last night’s Summer Salon Series at SDMA
Above is a slideshow from last night’s Summer Salon Series and There Goes the Neighborhood collaboration at the San Diego Museum of Art. Look for photos of Stephanie Lie and John Benson performing “Vibrating Milk,” photos of John Benson’s mobile concert venue, shots of the panel discussion on the gentrification of North Park and more. Oh, and the guy smiling by the Summer Salon Series sign is Alexander Jarman, manager of public programs at SDMA and the mastermind behind this very, very cool series of Thursday night events at the museum.
“San Diego needs something like this,” said a woman sitting on the steps watching the music performance that was happening in front of the bus.
“I don’t know what that was,” said an older man who walked by that same music performance.
“Don’t cry over spilled milk,” said an old, giggling Russian man to his wife as the “Vibrating Milk” performance was getting underway.
“Good question,” said Beryl Forman, aka “Ms. Boulevard,” the marketing manager for The El Cajon Boulevard Improvement Association, when David White, owner of Agitprop Art Space and moderator of last night’s panel discussion, asked the panel members to “define neighborhood.”
“The power is in your hands to stop this from happening and make real change,” said one of the architects behind SD Space 4 Art.
