Art Alive 2021

Art Alive 2021 kicks off the summer with a weekend of newly imagined festive floral events. As always, enjoy spectacular floral interpretations of nearly 100 works of art throughout the Museum. The sights, scents, and sounds of the floral exhibition will spill onto the plaza for the family-friendly Open Air Floral Affair. Bloom Bash takes a hiatus for the Color Feast, a more intimate but full surround-sound, synesthetic outdoor dining experience. And the exclusive Premiere Dinner moves under the stars. Art Alive 2021 offers even more virtual festivities, with a 360 virtual tour of the floral exhibition, a virtual silent auction, at-home workshops for all ages, and more.

HOME*GROWN*FUN

Jun 11 - Jul 4, 2021

Oh, how we missed you last year!

We just couldn't let another summer come and go without celebrating San Diego and all of the wonderful food & agriculture, arts & talent, business & innovation, and all-around FUN of our community.

So while we're still masked up and six-feet apart, we're rolling up our sleeves and getting back to our roots for HOME*GROWN*FUN, presented by the San Diego County Fair.

Smaller in scale than the fair and limited in attendance, HOME*GROWN*FUN will offer a taste of your fair favorites–including shopping, food concessionaires, a Ferris wheel and carousel, agricultural-themed exhibits, demonstrations, contests and "edu-tainment" designed to educate and delight families looking to get outside for some real-life, in-person and down-home fun.

Let's get growing again, San Diego!

Del Mar Racing Season

Jul 16 - Sep 6, 2021

Be part of the magic and nostalgia of this long-time horse race tradition dating back to 1937 when Bing Crosby greeted the first guests, and Seabiscuit won by a nose in the infamous race in 1938. This season features the nation's top racehorses, trainers and jockeys, and plenty of fun in the sun.

Living Room Lecture: Hominins, Hyenas, and Lions

May 13, 2021

The shift to increased meat consumption is one of the major adaptive changes in hominin dietary evolution and likely had important repercussions for the behavior of our early hominin ancestors. Meat-eating by hominins is well documented at Early Pleistocene (Oldowan) archaeological sites in East Africa by butchery marks on bones. While it is established that Oldowan hominins butchered mammal carcasses, there has been disagreement about whether these carcasses were hunted or scavenged, as well as disagreement about the nature of competition between hominins and large carnivores.
