Event Description Lux Art Institute, the recent recipient of the San Diego Architectural Foundation's top design award, hosts its monthly Lux @ Night – a free evening of art, wine, music, and merriment—amidst Lux’s five-acre site that overlooks the San Elijo Lagoon and an expansive wildlife preserve that stretches to the Pacific Ocean. Join Lux on Wednesday, April 15 from 7-9pm and enjoy a glass of wine as you take in Victoria Adams’ atmospheric landscapes of sky, clouds, water, and land that transcend region and connect us with nature. During her residency, the Vashon Island artist completed a luminous, 48 x 48 inch oil painting inspired by the San Elijo lagoon, one of California’s last remaining wetlands and neighbor to Lux. Also on April 15, Lux is proud to present singer Steph Johnson, live and in-studio. Her sound is a smooth mix of jazz, blues, R&B, and soul, and with her powerful voice and presence, she proves that she is a rare talent able to capture attention from the first note. At Lux, visitors don’t just see art, they “see art happen,” for an interactive art experience. Artists live and work on site, while producing a commissioned work of art. Throughout the year, Lux invites significant regional, national, and international artists to participate in the Lux residency and encourages visitors from across the country to observe and engage with them. $5 suggested donation for non-members. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A 21 & OVER EVENT. This event is sponsored by Supervisor Pam Slater-Price and the County of San Diego, and the City of Encinitas Community Grant Program and the Mizel Family Foundation.
