The Port of San Diego‘s Waterfront Arts & Activation Department hosted the first of two interactive presentations with artist Randy Walker as part of its Open Sessions program series, featuring creative conversations about art. Walker is beginning the process of developing an artwork concept for a temporary public art project inspired by the Port’s maritime industries. Woodbury faculty participated in an interactive charrette, sharing their input on the upcoming project and learning more about Walker’s body of work. During this interactive Open “Wrap” Session, community members participated in a sculptural and photographic exchange, becoming co-authors and part of the artist’s conceptual development process. Once finished, the multi-site artwork will be viewable from the Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal and National City Marine Terminal for approximately one year, beginning in mid-2018.
The Port of San Diego is focused on creating a vibrant waterfront destination with innovative artworks, cultural programming, and activation opportunities that enhance the visual excitement and cultural richness of District tidelands. With a permanent collection of over 70 artworks, combined with more than 30 tenant-commissioned artworks, and a dynamic curatorial plan focused on contemporary exhibitions, there is something for everyone around San Diego Bay.
