VOLUME 1 : 2013 COVER BY BEN DEHART


Welcome to the first edition of SPACE 4 ART’s quarterly interactive magazine! Deep within San Diego’s East Village, SPACE 4 ART continues to build momentum as it explores the boundaries of art while also supporting the region’s diverse creative community. Starting with the release of this issue, you can now get an insider’s view of the multifaceted arts scene that is constantly transforming the warehouse district into a thriving cultural incubator. Thank you to the tenant artists who supported this effort by supplying artwork & information that you will find on the following pages. And a shout out to our tenantfocused Communications Committee for developing this concept and making it a reality. On behalf of the artists and our Board of Directors of SPACE 4 ART, please except my invitation to join us in real time. Hope to see you at SPACE 4 ART soon. Stop in soon and say hello! Cheers,

Patric Stillman

Executive Director

Congratulations Bonnie Wright !

On May 14, during Fresh Sound Music Series event at Space 4 Art, Bonnie Wright was presented with a proclamation from Mayor Bob Filner, which read: In recognition of Bonnie Wright’s tireless personal dedication to bringing top musical talent from across the globe to San Diego playing electronic, jazz, and classical music seldom heard in the region. Since 1995, Fresh Sound Music Series has enlightened and entertained the citizens of San Diego. Bonnie’s unwavering vision has provided an inspiration to audiences at Spruce Street Forum, Sushi, UC San Diego’s Loft and Space 4 Art.

FRESH SOUND MUSIC IS A SERIES OF EXPERIMENTAL, ELECTRONIC, CONTEMPORARY CLASSICAL AND IMPROVISED MUSIC. WE AVOID THE MAINSTREAM.
