Free the Art

Our creative relationship with the San Diego Museum of Art began more than 20 years ago. At Blik, we are honored to once again provide marketing and brand communication services to one of San Diego’s most significant cultural institutions, through their upcoming permanent exhibition titled, Art of the Open Air. Beginning in January of 2016, SDMA will bring 8 significant sculptures out into the Plaza de Panama, offering free public access to sculpture by highly influential artists, such as Alexander Calder, Joan Miró, and Francisco Zúñiga. Blik’s partnership with SDMA involved creating an exhibition identity, brochures, posters, and materials to support fundraising efforts that will provide conservation and installation of these sculptures, as well as educational programs and docent tours. Yes, the parking lot and cars are long gone, so we hope you attend the opening reception, we encourage you to contribute to this cause, or just come to visit the Plaza when they’ve been installed.
