PHOTOS: It was art for artists’ sakes at Balboa Park meetup for San Diego Art Institute’s MAS (Mutual Appreciation Society) Attack

One of the coolest art events of the almost-spring season took place Feb. 28, 2015 at the San Diego Art Institute in Balboa Park. It was a one-night-only mass meet-up called “MAS Attack,” where 75 Los Angeles artists joined 75 San Diego-area artists to show and view their work and create new possibilities for engagement with audiences.

MAS (Mutual Appreciation Society) Attack is a concept created by LA-based Artra Curatorial, and this was its first outing in San Diego. The free event drew hundreds of attendees, including local art-lovers, who obviously enjoyed the opportunity to interact with 150 artists from around the world currently living and working in Southern California.
