Sep 30: Behind the Scenes: Sustainability at The Nat

September 30 | 5:30 – 7 PM | San Diego Natural History Museum

San Diego EMP’s 2019 theme is the year of “Big I.D.E.A.S!” This encompasses Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Sustainability. EMP’s September program focuses on the “S.” As many local organizations work to “go green” for environmental and economic reasons, learn about how the San Diego Natural History Museum (The Nat) is working to “go even greener” with their current operations.

Join Rubi Baricuatro, Manager at the Balboa Park Cultural Partnership Sustainability Program, and Michael Field, Director of Experience Design at The Nat, as they guide you through a unique behind-the-scenes tour that will shed some “energy efficient light” on the important work of sustainability in museums!

This tour is free to attend, but registration is required.

 RSVP Today!

 

See you there!

July 24: Behind-the-Scenes PostSecret Exhibit

July 24 | 5:30 – 7:30 PM | San Diego Museum of Man

Got a secret you’ve never told anyone? If so, you’re not alone!

Join us at the San Diego Museum of Man for a behind-the-scenes look at their latest exhibit, PostSecret.

Erika Katayama, Director of Exhibits at SDMoM, will guide our EMP guests through the gallery, sharing what it was like to take a topic so universal yet so intimate and fabricate an experience for museum visitors to explore what it means to keep and share secrets. At the end, there will be an opportunity for you to create your own secret postcard and maybe even become part of the exhibit!

The PostSecret project is an ongoing community art project started by Frank Warren. In 2004 he hit the streets of DC, asking people to send him their deepest secrets anonymously on hand-decorated postcards. The secrets came flying in since then, and they are hilarious, heavy, heartwarming, heartbreaking… the whole range of human emotions on display. After several published books, a play, and an incredibly successful blog (check out postsecret.com), the project has made its way to San Diego.

Suggested donation: Up to $10

The behind-the-scenes tour of PostSecret will start promptly at 5:30 pm. Please join us for an optional outing at Panama 66 after the tour at the San Diego Museum of Man.

Let us know you’ll be there!

See you there!
