City Heights Educational Collaborative
"The City Heights Education Collaborative is an innovative educational initiative that partners three San Diego Unified School District schools in City Heights with San Diego State University School of Education, San Diego Education Association and Price Charities.

In addition to the goal of inner city children achieving educational excellence, the three schools (Hoover High, Monroe Clark Middle and Rosa Parks Elementary) also operate as "community schools" providing comprehensive health and social services to students and their families."

Around the Counties: Mapping San Diego County Arts with Kinsee Morlan | San Diego | Artbound | KCET
"What makes San Diego County so attractive?

It's desert meets beaches. You can literally be out hiking in 100 degree temperatures, enjoy cacti and native scrub and later that day you'll be at the beach swimming in 60 degree water. I think that's unique to San Diego. San Diego is known as the "City of Villages." One complaint about San Diego is that there's no heart or soul of the city but really there's like 100 different little hearts and souls in San Diego. You've got South Park, Normal Heights, University Heights, Golden Hill. You'll definitely run into someone you know and it's like you're in a little town instead of this big ol' San Diego. I really like that about our city."

"Do you see any art trends in San Diego County?

• We've got these giant universities in San Diego. I think that's probably the biggest influence on our art scene here. UCSD is turning out these highly experimental conceptual artists. Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU) also has this amazing art program and they're turning out some really interesting conceptual work. San Diego State University and Woodbury University, an architectural university, both are creating furniture designers. They make these pieces that I would categorize as art rather than design. So, in terms of trends we're seeing more experimental conceptual and then really high quality furniture art. We have a lot of active artists and it's hard to be a working and living artist but when you're in school you kind of have that time to dedicate to just doing your work.

• Tijuana, Mexico is right there so, I would say, you definitely see the Mexican influence on art in San Diego."

Fab Lab San Diego — A place where you can make almost anything
"In 2007, a collaboration between the MIT & the San Diego-based non-profit Heads On Fire allowed for the creation of an advanced digital design & fabrication laboratory where community members can utilize high-tech tools to actualize ideas through design & fabrication.

Today, in addition to localized learning, Fab Lab programs are available in a distributed format, bringing the opportunity to turn concepts into creations to as many community members as possible. Fab Lab programs offer experiences in design, science, engineering, electronics, computation, mathematics & the scientific method, through project-based learning, resulting in personal development & real-world skill attainment.

By promoting learning that addresses empirical education, innovation, production & creativity, we aim to provide accessible & applicable educational experiences for individual learners in order to support the development of more ingenious & resourceful communities."

Bezoar: The sorrows of finance capital
""It's an outrage that the priority of this university is not in favor with the students," said Jessie Fernandez, an SFSU senior who attended the meeting. His major, **urban studies and planning**, is currently threatened by the plan." (emphasis mine)

Urban Studies, of all things! So, Michael Maltzan, that's the crux of the neoliberal frenzy here in California. Where does architecture step in? Do we proceed with bloated buildings as the idea of what an open, accessible city is, or do we defend the spaces of our own discipline?"

SDSU's Downtown Gallery Debuts |
"MCASD, MoPA, OMA…the local art scene is awash in acronyms, and this weekend, one more will enter the fray: SDSU. Seven years in the making, university will finally debut its stand-alone gallery downtown, first of its kind in the area.

Housed in the former SDG&E building on Kettner & Broadway, the project began at hands of John Gordon, SDSU's former director of the department of art, design & art history, and is funded entirely on donations and grants - something made entirely possible by the fact that it's rent free.

You heard right - at a time when even established galleries in town are having trouble staying afloat, the new space's lofty 2,800-square-feet (roughly a city block) are leased gratis for 30 years, with a renewal option that "will probably work out to be 60," said Arthur Ollman, current director of SDSU's art department.

Ollman said the deal was spurred by SDSU's first brush with downtown in 2003, when a makeshift gallery was set up for a year in Gaslamp."
