TNT’s explosive comeback at the Downtown Museum of Contemporary Art
After a painfully long six-month lapse in activities, the much-missed TNT (Thursday Night Thing) returns to the MCA’s downtown location on November 5th.
This unique event, which is held both inside the museum and on its outdoor patios, always offers attendees an evening packed full of contemporary art, performance, and musical entertainment.
On display at the museum is the work of New York artist Tara Donovan and her jaw-dropping, obsessively intricate, and large-scale sculptures that are composed out of simple materials like toothpicks, straws, and paper plates.
Live music will be performed by Money Mark and the group Birds and Batteries.
This is your chance to see the museum’s collection after dark, hobnob with local San Diego artist and art patrons while listening to live music and sipping on refreshing adult beverages like beer from Stone Brewing Company (one of their sponsors). If you’re not interested in the beer garden, the event also provides a family-friendly atmosphere inside the museum complete with live balloon animal creation by artist Addi Somekh. Local artist David Adey will also lead attendees in an interactive, collaborative project.
