25 Million Stitches: One Stitch, One Refugee

In this exhibition, guest curator and fiber artist Jennifer Kim Sohn looks for a way to make the unfathomable figure of refugees around our world more tangible by marking a displaced person with panels of hand-sewn stitches.

Each panel is unique, some documenting personal narratives, others showing solidarity with the refugees. Sohn and her passionate team of volunteers crowd-sourced 2,300 stitchers from all 50 states and 37 countries worldwide.

Mingei will be the third venue for this traveling exhibition as Sohn's persistence continues to raise awareness about this pressing issue. To that end, volunteers continue to stitch long after the 25 million mark was hit—fitting, as the number of displaced people continues to grow.

Apr 1 - ongoing

The Maritime Museum of San Diego invites you to join us for Tall Ship adventure sailing! This is a four-hour adventure history sail aboard the schooner Californian.
The Californian is a replica of a gold rush era revenue cutter and the Official Tall Ship of the State of California.

Arrive early to take in your general admission visit to the entire fleet and exhibits, then set sail! 

Join the crew in sailing a traditionally rigged tall ship! Passengers will be invited to haul a line, man the helm and watch the crew as they scamper up and down the rigging to set and furl the sails. Listen as the Californian’s crew relates the history of sailing and exploration in San Diego, tales of whaling and sea otter trade, local sea battles, the art of ship’s gunnery, life at sea and more.

Duke Windsor: “Reflections”

Apr 1 - Apr 28, 2024

Sparks Gallery is pleased to show new work by artist Duke Windsor in his collection “Reflections”. Join us for the reception on Sunday, April 14, 2024 from 5-8pm. RSVP at https://sparksgallery.com/rsvp?eid=44364. 

Duke Windsor’s success as a contemporary artist lies in his ability to infuse ordinary subject matter with his own ingenuity. To commemorate 30 years as a professional working artist in San Diego, this series, titled “Reflections”, focuses on the city’s streets. Each painting is gilded with lustrous gold leaf, a technique inspired by that used for old Russian icons. By delivering a kind of sacred designation to these secular, worldly scenes in his art, Windsor implores the viewer to rethink what is deemed as valuable and treasured in our everyday environment.
