The Art Institute of San Diego, in its ongoing commitment to regional visual arts and artists, presents the Museum of the Living Artist. Housed in the San Diego Art Institute's 10,000 square foot gallery at the House of Charm in Balboa Park, the museum is a showcase for newly created art by regional artists.

A new exhibition opens every four to six weeks, offering a comprehensive perspective on the cutting edge being created in the San Diego region. A visit to the Art Institute of San Diego is your opportunity to see local artwork and support San Diego's artists and art community. Be a part of what's happening in regional arts today!

The Art Institute of San Diego also offers ArtBox 2, a program designed as a self-guided exploration of the exhibits to aid the process of discovery and to stimulate communication between adults and children. Ask for an ArtBox 2 brochure at the door.

Don't miss a trip to the Artisan Gallery at the Art Institute of San Diego, which features unique handcrafted gifts created by local artists. Browse through a gorgeous selection of pottery, fused and blown glass, jewelry, clothing, greeting cards, as well as scenic prints of San Diego's landscapes and seascapes.

Gift certificates are also available for the Artisan Gallery and the Fine Visual Arts Gallery. All proceeds from any purchases directly support the region's artists and craftspeople.
