7:00 PM Exhibit Opening: Queer Afro & Latinx Contemporary Art As part of an ongoing pursuit of social justice and in response to today's cultural climate San Diego Art Institute (SDAI) in Balboa Park will debut its newest art exhibit Forging Territories: Queer Afro and Latinx Contemporary Art. This thought-provoking exhibit is among the first of its kind to explore and highlight conversations around underrepresented African American and Latinx artists identifying as LGBTQ. Purposefully launching during PRIDE Month and only one day after the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising considered the seminal event leading to the modern LGBTQ movement Forging Territories will showcase rarely-told stories of personal and cultural awakening through artists' responses to sense of identity and place, the influence of the current political moment and the comfort of shared background, language and history. Forging Territories is curated by Rubén Esparza, founder and director of the Queer Biennial, an international art fair anchored in Los Angeles with satellites in New York, Mexico, Miami, Paris and Zurich.

Forging Territories opens to the public on Saturday, June 29 with an opening reception from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM and will then be open Tuesday through Sunday between 12 and 5:00 PM through November 3.

8:00 PM Stage: As You Like It Rosalind flees persecution in her uncle's court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. In the forest, they encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveller Jaques who speaks many of Shakespeare's most famous speeches (such as "All the world's a stage", "too much of a good thing" and "A fool! A fool! I met a fool in the forest"). Jaques provides a sharp contrast to the other characters in the play, always observing and disputing the hardships of life in the country.
