San Diegoâ€™s Museum of the Living Artist is exhibiting its first single medium international fine art show â€“ and the medium is digital. The range of the art selected by Marilyn Kushner, Chair and Curator of the Prints and Drawings at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, spans the range of fine art one discovers in most contemporary shows. The exhibition runs through Sunday, June 11, 2006.
The exhibit is located in the heart of San Diegoâ€™s Balboa Park along with many of its cultural institutions â€“ the Timken Museum, the San Diego Museum of Art, the Old Globe Theatre Complex, the Museum of Photographic Art, the Natural History Museum, the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center and more.
