Dotted with numerous cultural institutions, distinct architecture, and home to the World-Famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park has been dubbed “San Diego’s Cultural Hub, “and “a place with something for everyone!” Located just a few miles away from the Gaslamp Quarter this sprawling urban park can credit its creation to two great expositions- one in 1915 and one in 1935. Join us for our first History Talks! Lecture of 2019 as guest speaker Michael Kelly, President of The Committee of One Hundred, presents The Story of the Panama-California Exposition Digital Archive Project. Get an inside look at images and documents from the historic Exposition and insight to how The Committee of One Hundred has worked to preserve the architecture, gardens and public spaces of Balboa Park since 1967.
Location of this lecture will be held just a few blocks walking distance from our museum at the Chuang Archive and Learning Center 541 Second Avenue, San Diego CA 92101
