Del Mar Racing SeasonDel Mar Racing Season
August 1 – September 4
Location: Del Mar, 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd

San Diego horse racing takes place where the “turf meets the surf” at the Del Mar Racetrack. Fans flock to the track each summer to wager on their favorite horses during the popular, annual Del Mar Thoroughbred Club racing season, mid-July through early-September. Be part of the magic and nostalgia of this long-time horse race tradition dating back to 1937 when Bing Crosby greeted the first guests, and Seabiscuit won by a nose in the infamous race in 1938. This season features the nation’s top race horses, trainers and jockeys, and plenty of fun in the sun.

Don’t miss the Del Mar Summer Concert Series. Concerts are free with racetrack admission purchased prior to the last race.

Lux Art Institute Xawery WolskiLux Art Institute Welcomes Resident Artist Xawery Wolski
January 1 – 7
Location: Encinitas, Lux Art Institute, 1550 South El Camino Real

Xawery Wolski was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1960 and currently lives and works in Mexico City. Educated both stateside and abroad, Wolski’s work has been exhibited internationally and is included in the permanent collections of Fonds National d’Art Contemporain (Paris, France), National Library of France (Paris), Mordena Museet (Stockholm, Sweeden), and Museo Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, among others.

Wolski’s residency provides him the perfect opportunity to produce a new sculptural work related to the idea of a dress, a consistent sculptural theme within his work. The concept of the dress continues to fascinate Wolski, and Lux’s locality would allow him to utilize his favorite material— local clay that gives rise to terra cotta. His new piece created in residence will be the creation of several hundreds of elements—dried, fired, sewn together using strong thread into the form of a dress. Once complete, this piece would accompany the other works on display, thereby representing Wolski’s practice that is informed by travel. This addition would also act as a link between the exhibited works that were inspired by his trips to Poland, India, France, Mexico, Thailand, Peru, Italy, and Myanmar, among others. Currently, the United States of America is missing from this link, and Wolski’s residency piece will bind the US to his oeuvre.

The Artist Pavilion is open 1:00 to 5:00 pm Thursday and Friday and 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday.
