SLA-SD event; Asafo Flags at the Mingei International Museum 3/22/16

Join us for an intriguing look at a very unique exhibit, the Asafo Flags from Ghana at the Mingei International Museum in Balboa Park.  This is an exhibition of thirty-seven flags from the West African country of Ghana. A recent donation to Mingei International, these colorful flags dating to the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries feature graphic imagery and appliqued designs on solid cotton grounds. More details on the exhibit can be found on the Mingei website.

The tour will begin with a brief introduction from the Curator and Director of Exhibitions Christine Knoke Hietbrink and continue with an in-depth look at selected works with a Museum docent. This will be followed by a tour of the Museum’s Frances Hamilton White Art Reference Library where Chapter Hospitality Chair Kristi Ehrig-Burgess will discuss how archives and digitization projects relate to the Museum’s collections and Mission.  The event is free to all attendees.

Afterwards gather at Panama 66 at the SD Museum of Art next door for a no-host happy hour.

Surf Museum Tour Wrap up!

What a delightful time with colleagues! Our small group really got the most out of the tour and dinner gathering.  Our host and avid surfer, Kramer (pictured in the museum below), was full of knowledge and information to share about what it was like to surf with the greats!  He also gave us a wonderful walk through tour of the entire museum that serves as an international repository and resource center on the lifestyle sport of surfing. We viewed all the exhibits which included, Gems from the Vault, The Art of Kevin Short, A Brief History of Surfboards, and exhibits on both Bud Brown, Bethany Hamilton.  We were all amazed at the extent of the collection and the unique pieces that so many surfers have donated to the museum over the years.  Thanks for sharing in this wonderful event!

Join Us! We’re going to the Surf Museum…

We are very excited to have arranged for a special group tour at the California Surf Museum on Monday, October 5th for our next SLA-SD Chapter program. The California Surf Museum serves as an international repository and resource center on the lifestyle sport of surfing through capturing, preserving, and chronicling its art, culture and heritage for the education and enjoyment of future generations. During our visit, we will be taken through many exhibits which include, Gems from the Vault, The Art of Kevin Short, A Brief History of Surfboards, and exhibits on both Bud Brown, Bethany Hamilton.   For more information you can visit their website: http://surfmuseum.org

Your surf adventure doesn’t have to stop there!  Bring your comfortable shoes.  After the tour, we will walk over for a bite to eat at Ruby’s Diner at the end of what I hear is the longest pier on the West Coast with 360’ views of the ocean surf.  http://www.rubys.com/locations/oceanside/index.html

Entrance to the museum is $5.00 If you are a member of the SLA-SD Chapter it is free!

Parking is available on the street just outside the museum.

Tour starts promptly at 3:00 and will wrap up in an hour.
