Every Which Way

SDSU Downtown Gallery Event

February 11, 2017 – April 9, 2017
Thursday through Monday 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
(closed Tuesday and Wednesday)

Every Which Way is the third in an annual series of exhibitions inspired by San Diego State University’s campus-wide initiative, the Common Experience. Comprised of artwork created by faculty and students from the School of Art + Design, the exhibition explores the current theme “Experience Movement” through multiple disciplines and interpretations. The selection in Every Which Way includes approaches ranging from participatory and playful to pieces that examine political and social issues. Visitors will be able to interact with a piece by Arzu Ozkal made of handcrafted movable magnets and see the art-making process revealed with Peter Scheidt’s mobile woodworking shop. Historical and contemporary social issues are visible in Mary Cale A. Wilson’s video exploring an event that occurred in the American South during the Civil War and as wearable art created by jewelry students addressing current events and topics.

As part of the exhibition, the Downtown Gallery will host a series of pop-up programs, creating a multi-sensory experience. Join us for activities and performances throughout the run of the show. Please visit our Facebook for an ongoing schedule of planned events.

Every Which Way is organized by the SDSU Downtown Gallery. Support for the exhibition and events are sponsored by the Common Experience, the School of Art + Design, the College for Professional Studies and Fine Arts, and Arts Alive SDSU. Additional support is provided by the San Diego State University Art Council.
