Event Description In 1991, photographer/filmmaker Lou Stoumen established an endowed gift to be given to a photographer whose work related in spirit to his own humanistic style of photography. Launching 2009, MoPA will present three exhibitions surrounding the legacy of Lou Stoumen: 1) Lou Stoumen: The Naked Truth, a solo exhibition of photographs by the artist accompanied by two documentary films which won him Academy Awards. 2) The Stoumen Legacy: Debbie Fleming Caffery, Kenro Izu, James Nachtwey & Gary Schneider features photographs from the four past recipients of the Stoumen Prize — each photographer will exhibit new work created as a result of this award. 3) The new Lou Stoumen Prize Recipient will be announced in 2009. A solo exhibition is planned (tentatively) for this yet-unnamed artist, and will be accompanied by a ceremony. A yet unnamed celebrity will present the award.

Event Description Art lovers and their families are invited to Lux Art Institute’s “Free Saturday” on January 31. From 1 – 4 p.m. guests will enjoy an open house with free admission, studio tours, refreshments and live music. Admission will be free all day on Saturday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. The afternoon will give visitors a chance to meet Lux resident artist Jolynn Krystosek. A mixed media sculptor and painter from New York City, Krystosek will create a large-scale, 8’ by 10’ paper collage in the Lux studio during her residency. The piece will begin with drawings, which will be projected on and cut from various layers of thin rice paper. The cut papers will then be layered over one another and be adhered to the wall. This process creates a rich, layered installation with shadow and texture. Lux Liaisons will guide tours through the studio and Krystosek’s exhibition of large-scale, sculptural paper cut-outs, wax floral relief carvings, and watercolors of exotic birds adorned with real feathers. Lux, San Diego’s interactive art destination, is dedicated to encouraging children’s artistic curiosity through Luxcursion (classroom fieldtrips to Lux,) the Valise Project, (portable museums presented to schools throughout San Diego,) Summer Camp, and Family Day. Lux Art Institute is located at 1550 South El Camino Real in Encinitas. Parking for “Free Saturday” is in the Sanderling-Waldorf School parking lot and in posted parking zones along El Camino Real. Lux hours are Thursday and Friday, 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; cost is $10 for two visits. For more information visit www.luxartinstitute.org or call 760.436.6611.
