A motley, lively crowd from different neighborhoods and niches all over San Diego County descended on the Luce Loft in East Village last Wednesday for our second arts illumination event, A Meeting of the Minds. Six plugged-in speakers each had 20 images (displayed for just 20 seconds each) to highlight something in local arts and culture.
Some were delighted to hear about San Diego’s jazz history — “a part of San Diego that we’ve been missing,” said Bennett Peji, a city arts commissioner. Another attendee, Enrique Meza, said he enjoyed seeing the before-and-after pictures of Chicano Park, which is in the neighborhood where Meza lives.
Did you miss it, or want to jog your memory about something you heard? We’ll be posting videos of each presentation, thanks to our partners from the Media Arts Center San Diego.
You can watch the first three posted so far: Vanessa Dinning on the intersections of words, music and drama; Lynn Susholtz on the footprint of Eveoke Dance Theatre; and Constance White on the collection of public art at the Stuart Collection at UC San Diego.
