The Flower Fields

Mar 1 - May 12, 2019

For more than sixty years, Mother Nature has transformed the rolling hills of North San Diego County into one of the most spectacular and coordinated displays of natural color and beauty anywhere in the world. The nearly fifty acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers that make up the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch in Carlsbad, California, are in bloom for approximately six to eight weeks each year - from early March through early May - literally bringing the famous fields back to life. This annual burst of color, which has become part of the area’s local heritage, also is one of nature’s official ways of announcing the arrival of spring here in Southern California.

Film: Bloody Sunday

Jan 25, 2019

Set a mere seven months before the Belfast bombings that inspired Tim Shaw’s immersive piece "Mother, the Air is Blue, the Air is Dangerous," Bloody Sunday recreates in minute detail the events leading up to and following “Bloody Sunday,” in which British soldiers shot 28 unarmed Irish civilians during a peaceful protest march in Derry, Northern Ireland. "Bloody Sunday" not only offers valuable historical context in understanding the origins of many of Shaw’s pieces but also compellingly depicts a conflict whose repercussions are still deeply felt today. (107 minutes, rated R)

Show your film screening ticket for free Museum same-day admission during Art After Hours from 5:00–8:00 p.m.
