About MCASD’s featured exhibition Alexis Smith: The American Way
“Alexis Smith: The American Way is the first retrospective of the California artist in thirty years. Smith’s collages combine found texts, images, and objects to underscore and exaggerate how we are shaped by the media and culture that surround us. With her signature sense of humor, Smith turns a keen eye to literature, movies, and pop culture to scrutinize the myth of the American Dream.” Learn More(https://mcasd.org/exhibitions/alexis-smith-the-american-way).
To aid your visit, MCASD has free street parking available on a first-come-first-served basis. If you need additional accommodations, please contact the San Diego EMP Board members at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange parking in MCASD’s limited parking garage.
