11:00 AM Exhibition: African American Art 'Impressions' San Diego Mesa College Art Gallery presents "Impressions: African American artists and their connection to African Art," an exhibition featuring the works of Andrea Chung, Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle and Robert Pruitt as well as select pieces from the San Diego Mesa College African Art collection. Chung, Hinkle and Pruitt create work that represents the black body and inscribes it with meaning through the use of historical im, references to African art and symbolism.

Their work establishes a dialogue that both deconstructs and demystifies gender and race. The artifacts in the African Art collection, some dating as far back as the 16th century, enter into conversation with the works of these contemporary artists and in doing so they reassert their cultural and artistic influence on African American art. Together, this visual ensemble from the past and the present both illuminates and offers insights into the African American experience.

5:00 PM Jewish Film Festival Screening of Lamb The Worldview Project is proud to be a Film Festival Community Partner for the San Diego Jewish Film Festival screenings of the film Lamb!

Upon the death of his mother, a young Jewish boy is sent to live with relatives who see him only as another mouth to feed. Ephraim instantly feels out of place among his Christian relatives whose farming lifestyle and chauvinist attitudes further his struggle to fit in. Ephraim bonds with Chuni, a lamb that begins to accompany him everywhere. But when Ephraim realizes Chuni is going to be slaughtered for an upcoming holiday, he must devise a plan for both of their futures.

Admission/Cost: $15.25 for General Public, $12.25 for Nonmember Seniors and Students
