San Diego Art News
Hey art addicts—get ready to start making longer drives down south. If you want to keep up with the most interesting art shows in town, you’re going to have to add the Southwestern College Art Gallery to your list of go-to venues.
Longtime artist Perry Vasquez has stepped in as co-director of the gallery alongside John Lewis. Vasquez just sent CityBeat a list of upcoming exhibitions, and there are definitely some shows you won’t want to miss. What else would you expect from an artist like Vasquez, a guy whose poster images have proliferated around the globe (see “Keep on Crossin” pictured right) and whose performance art is always somewhat shocking?
