Gateway conversations

April 28th — April 30th 2016

San Diego, CA  - Tijuana, B.C. – Julian, CA

In 1994, the Pacific Rim Park (PRP) and Ilan-Lael Foundation (ILF), under the artistic direction of artist James Hubbell, launched a global conversation between San Diego and Pacific Rim nations around the transformative power of art and the artistic process. Hubbell’s unique expression of art diplomacy resulted in public art parks built by an international contingent of architecture students in seven Pacific Rim cities.  Through these shared art-making experiences, the diverse people and nations of the Pacific transcended language barriers and cultural differences to explore and celebrate their common humanity.   

In 2017, the PRP and ILF will bring the participants of the Pacific Rim Park project to San Diego to continue exploring the role of art in international relations.
