San Diego Museum of Art
One of San Diego’s most historic Parks hosts the San Diego Museum of Art. The museum recently acquire a mid 17th century sculpture of San Diego De Alcala. There is approximately about 7.4 million dollars worth of art and they are continuously adding to their collection.
If you want to truly see San Diego, you are going to have to go to the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park.
The museum has just acquired a mid-17th century sculpture by Pedro de Mena: “San Diego de Alcalá.” It joins the company of works by El Greco, Sánchez Cotán, Zurbarán, Cano and Murillo in the museum’s upstairs gallery dedicated to Spanish art.
“One of my ambitions has been to build on the great collection of European art already in San Diego,” said executive director Roxana Velásquez in a statement. The new work by Pedro de Mena strengthens our collection of Spanish art. Combined with the acquisition of the “Portrait of Don Luis de Borbón” by Anton Raphael Mengs that we acquired last year, we are expanding important holdings for San Diego.
