Visual and performing arts converge at MCASD's after-hours offering, Downtown at Sundown. On the third Thursday of every month, enjoy free Museum admission and exhibition tours, DJ-spun tunes, free entry at SDSU Downtown Gallery, drink specials at the adjacent Stone Brewing Company Store, and so much more.
January's Downtown at Sundown will feature An Outside Perspective talk at 6 PM with Dr. Marty Ralph, Researcher of Climate, Atmospheric Sciences, and Physical Oceanography at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Dr. Ralph will discuss the physical processes that create extremes in precipitation, ranging from floods to drought. A primary topic of his research has been atmospheric rivers and their role in mid-latitude precipitation as a way to harness water. MCASD is pleased to present a series of talks featuring distinguished scientists who will discuss issues related to climate change in conjunction with the exhibition Oscar Romo: Recovered Stream.
