Opening Time 00:00 A.M.
Event Description Seeing Beauty explores the aesthetics of beauty, expressed through the eyes of various photographers throughout the history of the medium, including Bill Brandt, Walker Evans, Mary Ellen Mark, Edward Weston, Minor White, and Aaron Siskind. The exhibition presents a range of genres in photography, such as portraiture, abstraction, landscape, and still life. The photographs in the exhibition examine the elements of art and design, composition and framing, as well as subject matter. In examining these elements in the context of aesthetic beauty, the exhibition poses the question of how our personal interpretation and notions of what constitutes beauty affect our experience of looking at art. The exhibition is meant to engage viewers to challenge, redefine, or confirm their understanding of what beauty is, and what factors contribute to their aesthetic evaluation. Seeing Beauty is the fifth in a series of educational exhibitions comprised of works from MoPA's permanent collection, presented in a thought-provoking, interactive and experiential setting.

Event Description Plastic Fantastic explores the contrast between McMansions, plastic surgery and the artificiality of high end living with San Diego’s gorgeous seaside, weather and natural beauty. While seemingly random and difficult to decipher, Plastic Fantastic references today’s open-source culture of sampling and recycling. Fashion, modern architecture and beach aestheticism combine and collide in Renshaw’s vibrant mixed media compositions. A preview reception introduces the exhibition on Saturday, January 30th from 5:00- 7:00 p.m. OMA’s receptions are known for their party atmosphere complete with wine and scrumptious hors d’oeuvres prepared by OMA’s own Culinary Arts Council. Admission to the reception is $10. Members of the museum enjoy complimentary admission as a benefit of membership. The exhibition will be on view January 31 through June 20, 2010.
