Tomorrow, January 21, 2007 will mark the grand (re)opening of the newly expanded Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. The “Community Free Day” is scheduled from 12pm – 6pm.

This four year in the making, 25 million dollar expansion is poised to contribute to the already impressive cultural tourism draw that San Diego possesses. Surely that will have a significant impact on the revenue of San Diego restaurants, hotels and accommodation providers, and purveyors of entertainment in San Diego.

With over 16,000 feet for exhibitions (10k of which is in the Santa Fe baggage building), and the additional educational facilities of the Copley Building the new campus is sure to provide a wealth of intake for art admirers and scholars.

Consider visiting the new Downtown San Diego contemporary art museum on Jan. 21st or Thurs thru Tues, 11-5pm.

    My family and me were sadly underwhelmed by the opening event. So much of the Jacobs room was wasted by showing just one extra-large installation. So much more of the collection could have been showcased in that room.

    There was just one Jasper Johns piece that we saw and just one Clay, too.

    The space in the band new building was smallish and felt very much like a public elementary school. The large room in the old building is still the best room to show any exhibit.

    I’m sad.

    I agree. It was awful. At least Karl Strauss was nearby to dull the pain.
