Tower After Hours Archives

 

THE TOWER AFTER HOURS™ ARCHIVES document the Museum’s ongoing series of events celebrating San Diego’s unique and vibrant ethnic mix.

Inaugurated in 2004, the Tower After Hours series celebrates San Diego’s diversity with special evenings of food, live entertainment, and exhibits produced in collaboration with the many ethnic communities of San Diego. Made possible with the participation of San Diego community organizations and performing groups, the events have been featured as favorite “Must-see” attractions and “Best Bet” cultural programs in the local press and on television programs in both San Diego and Tijuana.

In the Tower After Hours series, the main floor of the Museum becomes a place for San Diego’s diverse communities to share with attendees their rich cultural heritage through cuisine and performing arts, and to present their current projects and programs. The food is prepared by local restaurants, community groups, and celebrities, and a wide variety of musicians and dancers bring each evening alive. For each program, a display case featuring the history and culture of each community with objects, photos, and explanations of the community’s origins and contributions to San Diego is installed just inside the entrance of the Museum for the month prior to each event. To create the displays, the Museum partners with community groups and cultural organizations. Each display provides an opportunity for the participating community members to tell their stories as San Diegans.

We invite you to join us for Tower After Hours at the San Diego Museum of Man. Click here for information, and be sure to watch the Special Events page for further information on future Tower After Hours programs.
