Expands will fully inspire community building through an entertaining, engaging, and enlightening series of participatory works, while encouraging collaboration between the artists and the public to present works that are simultaneously challenging yet accessible to a broad audience.

The "Balboa Park at 100" exhibition opening in 2015 will explore the past, present, and imagined future of Balboa Park. Participating artists from Southern California/Baja Norte will be invited to create work that directly responds to and reinterprets Balboa Park through site-specific installation, photography, painting, sound, and video.

Change is difficult, and that the implementation of any new initiative may look shocking. I want to assure you that our mission remains the same, and that we will ALWAYS be dedicated to supporting and showcasing the work of local artists.
