Brueghel to Canaletto: European Masterpieces from the Grasset Collection
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES  •  The San Diego Museum of Art  •  2 April - 2 August 2016
 

This exhibition features fine still life and landscape paintings from leading Dutch, Flemish, Italian, Spanish and German artists of the 17th & 18th centuries. Made possible by a loan from a European family, of French origin with close connection to Spain, the exhibition features 40 works never before displayed publicly including landscapes ranging from masters like Jan Brueghel the Elder and Barent Avercamp to the greatest of all Venetian view-painters, Canaletto. The collection is on view at the San Diego Museum, the sole venue for the exhibition.

Spanning the years 1600 to 1750, the featured works represent a turning point in history when artwork began to be collected by those other than nobility–and the art market emerged.

Sebastião Salgado
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES  •  The San Diego Museum of Art  •  20 February - 17 May 2016
 
The Brazilian-born artist’s black-and-white photographs are among the most influential images of our time—capturing the grim realities of industrialization in developing countries, the toll of warfare and the degradation of the natural environment. The artist’s quest to capture nature in its unspoiled original state culminated in 2013 with the publication of Genesis, a portfolio of 200 black-and-white photographs. Sebastião Salgado is the subject of the Oscar-nominated 2014 documentary The Salt of the Earth, directed by acclaimed German filmmaker Wim Wenders and the artist’s son, Juliano Ribeiro Salgado. In Salgado's native Brazil, he and his wife founded the Instituto Terra, a reforestation project whose greenhouses produce more than one million seedlings a year.

On view is a selection of works by Salgado from The San Diego Museum of Art's permanent collection and from the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, and the Museum of Photographic Arts.

Del Mar National Horse Show
DEL MAR, CALIFORNIA , UNITED STATES  •  Del Mar Fairgrounds  •  23 April - 7 May 2016
 

The Del Mar National began in the mid-1940s as part of the annual San Diego County Fair, which occurs each June at the Fairgrounds. By the late 1970s, it had grown so large that it outgrew the confines of the county fair and became a separate event. Western and Hunter/Jumper competition comprised the then two-week show until the early 1990s, when the Dressage competition made its debut, adding a third week.

Each year the Del Mar National attracts more than 1,500 horses representing many breeds across three distinctly different disciplines. Spectators will see world-class performances in reining with its famous spins and sliding stops, elegant and athletic dressage moves choreographed to music, and show jumping.
