This Weekend: There Goes The Neighborhood

We all love The Moviegoers, so I thought I'd share some information that Jessica asked me to pass along. She's an MFA student at UCSD and she and some other students have created a pretty stellar weekend of events.

Full event descriptions

Save the date for this four day event series examining the everyday through artistic interventions at the scale of the neighborhood.

There Goes the Neighborhood! is organized by a group of artists, architects and interested parties that takes place in the San Diego neighborhood of North Park. Events include a bicycle tour of thrift stores, a New Orleans style procession, mobile music shows on a former transit bus, a panel discussion on "Art, Neighborhood and Gentrification" at the San Diego Museum of Art, an artist's talk at a local diner, radio transmissions and an indoor picnic restaurant. TGTN! presents a way for residents to re-examine issues of public space, the role of institutions in the everyday happenings of a local community, and the impact of art-related practices on neighborhoods.
Particularly exciting to readers of this blog, the transit bus concert on Friday night should be absolutely nutso, featuring Mission: Valley, Innerds and Riverberb.

Visit There Goes The Neighborhood! or Agitprop for a complete schedule.
