Over the course the yearlong residency NAM Artist-in-Residence Kerianne Quick and NAM invited the residents of San Diego to share meaningful objects related to their story. The resulting exhibition; paints a portrait of our city through objects brought on - or left behind during - an international or domestic migration journey.

These re-creations will be on display along with audio recordings of each individual participant

7:30 PM Linda Blair Lectures on Jan Van Eyck Athenaeum Music & Arts Library welcomes back art historian Linda Blair with a new lecture series, Dreams and Enchantment: Jan van Eyck.

The three-part Thursday evening lecture series is designed to transport us to an otherworldly realm of noble knights and dreaming ladies, caparisoned steeds, and fairy-tale castle--all our reveries of the Arthurian knightly dream--in short, to 15th century Burgundy and the last glow of late medieval art.

November 7: Van Eyck as Influencer
How could Jan van Eyck possibly relate to Leonardo? The insights and inventions that made his genius possible were born not in Renaissance Italy, but far away, beyond the Alps in Northern Europe, in small, patrician Bruges, center of the dukes of Burgundy and their court painter, Jan van Eyck. We will plumb Van Eyck's discoveries to look afresh at Leonardo
8:00 PM Stage: Twelfth Night Shakespeare's tale of a shipwreck on the coast of Illyria.
