Hello all… Richard of http://www.coolsandiegosights.wordpress.com inspired me to check something out at Balboa Park.
Spanish Village is a group of studios, in the Northeast part of Balboa Park, where artists of all mediums make and sell art. Right now they have a mixed media display to celebrate the Centennial being celebrated at Balboa Park. Each piece represents a different art style of the last 100 years. I took photos of the various pieces.
I started my visit there by noticing this lovely tree with such pretty variegated leaves:
The first piece represents the style called “steampunk”:
Next was “Cubism”. I love the frog near the bottom of the piece:
This represents the 1930’s Work Progress Administration that provided work for artists during the depression:
The next one I took photos of the front and back. It is “psychedelic”. It has a double kaleidoscope on it.
The next one represents “Abstract Expressionism” :
The next one is ” Photo realism” :
The next one is “minimalism” :
And the last one is “Graffiti”:
Hope you enjoyed this. There was a fair amount of shade that day so the photos aren’t the clearest, but hopefully you got an idea of the beauty and creativity of the artists. I invite you to go check out the display and all the beautiful offerings in the Village.
