Culture & Cocktails

Persian Nights

Discover the beauty and wonder of Persian Nights at Culture & Cocktails at The San Diego Museum of Art

The Museum's popular sundown series travels to ancient Persia (modern-day Iran) with an evening inspired by the newly installed Arts of Iran and Arts of South and Southeast Asia galleries. Find inspiration in the geometric Iranian motifs featured in the galleries to create your own mosaic choker necklace or cuff bracelet, add your personal flair to a collaborative sticky note mural, and enjoy a Darius the Great signature cocktail crafted by award-winning distillery Papa's Pilar Rum. Portland-based artist Christina Lonsdale is bringing her Radiant Human photography laboratory to "make the metaphysical" tangible through extrasensory portraits of your aura!

Dreadnought: 100 Years of a Mighty Martin Guitar

Jan 4 - ongoing

In 1833, guitar maker Christian Frederick Martin crossed the ocean in search of freedom from restriction and the opportunities of a new land. Settling in Nazareth, PA, his arrival marked the beginning of what is now a 6-generation continuously family owned and operated company, C.F. Martin & Co., and a tradition of American guitar building.

One of Martin's greatest contributions to our musical landscape was its 1916 introduction of the Dreadnought style guitar. Named after the game changing British war ship, the HMS Dreadnought, this large-bodied, powerful acoustic guitar still thrives today. It is a primary tool of countless musicians, and a mainstay in the factories and shops of guitar builders around the globe.

Come visit this unique special exhibition and experience the Dreadnought for yourself.
