PRE/POST-SHOW EVENT EXPERIENCES:
Iconic 1990’s fashion designed by students of San Diego City College’s Theatrical Makeup & Special Effects Class.
The San Diego Museum of Man’s PostSecret Street Team will invite guests to participate in their “pop-up” postcard-making station. This project is in association with the SDMoM’s current exhibition featuring San Diego’s beautiful, raw, and moving secrets – written on postcards. The artfully-crafted postcards are mailed to PostSecret founder Frank Warren, and each week he selects and arranges a composition of secrets for his award-winning blog. To date, the project has received over a million submissions, some of which have been displayed at the White House and featured in six best-selling books.
