The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (1100 & 1001 Kettner Blvd.) is currently displaying three large sculptures downtown. Sol Lewitt's Six-Part Modular Cube is on exhibit in the downtown Jacobs Building. The Cube "presents the geometric forms typical of the artist, yet opened and enlarged to monumental scale."
In the 1001 Kettner Blvd building, Marcos Ramírez's Sing-Sing and Richard Long's 14-foot Baja California Circle are on display. In addition, the Museum is screening Juan Downey's 28-minute The Laughing Alligator, "part travelogue and part ethnographic documentary...[that] playfully mocks the supposed objectivity of traditional anthropological films." Admission is $5-10 and the Museum's hours 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. everyday except Wednesday. Every third Thursday of the month, the Museum opens to the public for free.
