Downtown at Sundown


January 21, 2016 at 6 pm  |  SDSU Downtown Gallery

In response to the artworks included in Presence: Selections from the Matthew and Iris Strauss Family Foundation Collection, this music and spoken-word performance will explore a world in which we appear from nowhere and from which we disappear into the unknown.  

Musical selections to include works by Joseph Haydn and Caroline Shaw.

The performance is organized by Professor Sandra Alcosser, director of the MFA Program in Creative Writing in the SDSU Department of English and Comparative Literature. The exhibition is sponsored by the San Diego State University Art Council.
