Kick off the summer at the San Diego Museum of Art’s Culture and Cocktails celebration! The San Diego Museum of Art is excited to invite the public to the next installment of Culture & Cocktails – Sculpture & Cocktails – celebrating the contemporary sculpture exhibition Richard Deacon: What You See is What You Get. The party starts at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 29 and we’d love to see you there!

One lucky winner will get two tickets to Sculpture and Cocktails, featuring the art of Richard Deacon, at the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park. Follow the steps outlined below to enter.

Due to popular demand, the British artist’s first major American museum survey has been extended through Labor Day, September 4.

Richard Deacon: What You See Is What You Get is the renowned British artist’s first major museum survey in the United States. Winner of the Turner Prize in 1987 and the subject of a survey at Tate Britain in 2014, Deacon has been exhibited frequently internationally and remains a pioneering figure in the field of contemporary sculpture. A self proclaimed “fabricator”—a maker of things and of meaning, neither carved nor cast—Deacon sidesteps the issue of technique by never focusing on any one material, challenging the viewers’ expectations with unusual combinations. While the titles of his work can appear literal, they often invoke a range of metaphors, as well as mythological and literary allusions. The full range of the artist’s oeuvre includes free-standing sculptures and wall-mounted works, to glazed ceramics and works on paper.

Richard Deacon: What You See Is What You Get includes roughly 40 works from more than three decades of Deacon’s oeuvre. Along with loans from private collections as well as from institutions including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., this exhibition will debut a new work by Deacon.

I was a lucky winner when I went to preview this imposing exhibit, too!

Unique to this event, you will enjoy a night under the stars in an outdoor garden space with an LED game area set among works featured in Art of the Open Air. Bring a date, grab a few friends, and experience art in a whole new way!

You can look forward to:

  • Sculpture-inspired cocktails from Papa’s Pilar Rum and Suerte Tequila
  • Create your own screen-printed T-shirt featuring motifs from Richard Deacon’s Bamako Monoprint series
  • Visit the Sculpture & Cocktails photo booth and pose with a reflective work made exclusively for this event by San Francisco artist Taped Metal Canvas
  • Pose for a hand-cut paper portrait by silhouette artist Cindi Hardwood Rose
  • Enjoy eats from Donut Dispatch and Bitchin Sauce, or purchase food from Super Q
  • Join a game of table tennis, foosball, and more in the outdoor illuminated gaming space
