Summer Solstice Soiree celebrates the new season

The San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla celebrated the start of summer on June 20 with what they called a “deconstructed dinner party” on the oceanfront terrace. There were tasty tidbits from Roppongi, La Valencia, and Festivities Catering, beer and mac ‘n’ cheese from Stone World Bistro & Brewery, sweet things from French Gourmet and Sprinkles, plus a Bacardi Mojito bar pouring specialty summer-berry cocktails. And of course there was art, created for the evening — an installation by Brian Dick and Wendell Kling. The 100-plus attendees were members and friends of Avant Garde, the museum’s newest networking group of social, philanthropic and art-minded young professionals, who clearly enjoyed the setting, the weather, and the event. — Lonnie Burstein Hewitt
