At the final event on May 20, Fern Street Circus will be entertaining guests with puppets, jugglers, aerialists and more. Attendees will have a chance to test out their circus skills in interactive workshops in tightwire, hooping and puppetry. Additionally, guests will enjoy free food and refreshments, a photo booth and face painting.
“Bench Party” is presented by the Port of San Diego’s Office of Arts & Culture as part of its curatorial program and will be on view through May 20, 2017. The Office of Arts & Culture is focused on creating a vibrant waterfront destination with innovative artworks, cultural programming, and activation opportunities that enhance the visual excitement and cultural richness of District tidelands. With a permanent outdoor collection of over 70 artworks, combined with more than 30 tenant-commissioned artworks, and a dynamic curatorial plan focused on contemporary exhibitions, there is something for everyone around San Diego Bay. One can enjoy the many artworks on permanent display year-round and return to see new temporary pop-up exhibitions.
