MCASD receives $750,000 grant
The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) has received a grant of $750,000 from The James Irvine Foundation. The grant will support the implementation of MCASD’s labFORUM – a radical shift from the notion of MCASD as one museum with multiple locations (all doing essentially the same thing) to an institution with two distinct locations, each with different identities.

MCASD will redefine its downtown location as the Lab – a studio or working place for the most “contemporary” of contemporary art, including multimedia.

The La Jolla venue will be structured as the Forum, featuring the collection in rotating thematic exhibitions as well as temporary shows originated here or traveling from other museums.

Film screening slated
The Women’s Institute of Southern California is bringing a bit of Hollywood to Carmel Valley. The local nonprofit will host a screening of the new film “You” at the theater at 6:30 p.m. June 30 at Torrey Villas Resort Apartments. Melora Hardin of “The Office,” who directed and acted in the film, will be in attendance.

“You” is a love story that spans 21 years. It is about a father who loses his beloved wife and his struggles raising their daughter alone. It also stars Brenda Strong, Joely Fisher and Gildart Jackson.

The screening will be followed by a champagne reception and dinner. The cost is $20. Tickets are available at wiosc.com. Torrey Villas Resort Apartments are at 11100 Vista Sorrento Parkway.
