Experience ArtPower! at UC San Diego in La Jolla
UC San Diego is a gorgeous sprawling campus located in beautiful La Jolla. ArtPower! is an exciting program on campus that engages its diverse audiences by providing performances from emerging and renowned international artists from all walks of life. It also builds creative experiences in all forms of expression, including music, dance, food and exhibition. ArtPower! provides truly memorable opportunities for the creation of new work, research, participation and a dialogue between artists, student and scholars. Through the generosity of its supporters, ArtPower! also offers discounted student tickets, master classes and film workshops.
ArtPower! has featured major attractions such as Laurie Anderson and Patti Smith and has also showcased lesser-known and equally talented performers from all over the globe.
