Museum Month – Ask the Artist What’s On Their Mind at the Lux Art Institute


Another participant in Macy’s Museum Month is the Lux Art Institute in Encinitas. The thing to like about the Lux Art Institute is that you get to meet the artist in person and watch them create their artwork. (You can finally ask an artist what they were thinking as they created their piece.) It is an unusual experience to see art come alive.

The museum hosts visiting artists giving guests fresh perspectives on a variety of art. You can read more about visiting the museum on my San Diego Travel web site.

  1. The Lux Art Institute sent out this email regarding a FREE event and interaction with the artist on Saturday:

    Saturday, February 19, 2011
    FREE and open to the public
    Sponsored by The San Diego Union-Tribune and funded, in part, by the City of Encinitas and Mizel Family Foundation Community Grant Program

    Bring the whole family to Lux Art Institute this Saturday, and enjoy free studio tours, live music from singer-songwriter Dawn Mitschele, refreshments, and a hands-on art project for visitors of all ages.

    Inside the Lux studio, visitors will experience the poignant work of Los Angeles-based artist Alison Saar and witness her sculpture-in-progress: a full-scale, copper-clad female figure.

    The Lux store will be open, so be sure to stop in to find one-of-a-kind art objects and gifts, including a special line of products inspired by Lux Kids, new Lux logo items, and work from local artist, Lisa Venditelli.

    Parking is available in the Sanderling School lot. For more information call 760.436.6611 or email
