Education Room at MCASD NEW DOWNTOWN JOAN & IRWIN Jacob's Building Location

Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego

The expanded MCASD Downtown provides San Diego and the binational region with a new dynamic cultural venue, allowing the Museum to serve many more visitors with contemporary art exhibitions and public programs for adults as well as children. Combined with the existing MCASD Downtown facility across the street at 1001 Kettner Blvd., the expanded MCASD Downtown has more than 16,000 square feet of exhibition space—featuring light-filled galleries and large spaces to present site-specific work—as well as a new lecture hall and education room for hands-on, interactive art activities.

The Richard Gluckman-designed project features a thoughtful renovation of the 1915 Santa Fe Depot baggage building (the Jacobs Building) and a new three-story structure (the Copley Building). The international lineup of commissioned and opening artists includes Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Roman de Salvo, Jenny Holzer, Ernesto Neto, Richard Serra, and Richard Wright. Completed in January 2007, the three-building facility of MCASD Downtown, along with MCASD La Jolla, provides an unprecedented variety of exhibition spaces and experiences for the community.
