Balboa Park Museum Month And More
February may be the tiniest of months, but there will be a heckuva lot happening at Balboa Park. From new art exhibitions to an appearance by one of the most famous astronauts in history, here are my picks for eight great reasons to plan a trip to the park next month:
Museum Month. It’s back! Pick up your free Museum Month pass at any Macy's store in San Diego County, Temecula, or Imperial Valley and enjoy half-off admission at 40 museums during February, including Balboa Park museums.
Video Portraits. Theatre and visual arts come together for what may be Timken’s most non-traditional exhibition in its history: "Robert Wilson Video Portraits." Beginning on February 25, the museum will showcase four of artist Robert Wilson’s contemporary video portraits that depict celebrities such as Robert Downey, Jr. and Winona Ryder in characters inspired by themes of European art. Three of the portraits will be displayed on 65-inch HD plasma monitors and the fourth will be projected on the west exterior wall of the museum after sunset.
Classic Rom Com. Equally suitable for a date night around Valentine’s Day or a night out with the girls, performances of “Jane Austen’s Emma: A Musical Romantic Comedy” will run through March 6 at The Old Globe theatre. Ticket prices range from $39 to $94.
