An upcoming exhibition at San Francisco State University, Being Pacific contextualizes the cultural vigor and historical narratives of artists and their experiences originating from the Pacific Islands. With a strong foundation in empowerment, the lens is placed on the truth of community relationships and their starting points. Examining an array of works that dialogue emotional conflicts, tradition, practices, colonialism, and their verity, Being Pacific is merely a small fragment of Oceania’s diary, but carries the load of what it really means to identify as Pacific Islander. The Art Gallery at San Francisco State University is located in the Cesar Chavez Student Center Building on the Terrace Level (T-Level, 3rd floor) across from Jack Adams Hall.

San Diego has been a military town ever since 1774 when it was officially made a presidio guarding the coast of California against the encroachment from other European nations like England and Russia. Since then, San Diego has been a training ground for all services of the United States military and today, San Diego is still inextricably tied to the United States military with naval, Marine, and Coast Guard installations scattered throughout the county.

Presidio to Pacific Powerhouse: How the Military Shaped San Diego is a nine-museum collaboration that tells the story of San Diego’s relationship with our military. Video produced by Balboa Park ...
