Oceanside Museum of Art Granted $150,000

The Oceanside Museum of Art has received a $150,000 grant from the James Irvine Foundation, reports James Chute of U-T San Diego. The funds will endow a series of interactive and public artist-in-residence programs that will bring art to a number of locations throughout San Diego, primarily within North San Diego County. Chute writes that the museum intends to produce five projects dealing with several “key socioeconomic factors that define Oceanside: military, beaches/tourism, retail, and transportation.” Said director Daniel Foster: “We are so appreciative of the James Irvine Foundation’s continued and deep partnership with the museum, which now amounts to $800,000 of financial support over the past seven years.”
