Join Oriana at JuneShine for an exhibition of underwater photography. Oriana will be showing fifteen images from her Pacific Dreamstates series at Juneshine, the world's first hard kombucha bar. These photographs are all made while freediving with a Nikonos camera and 35mm film, and offer a unique perspective from underneath the surface of our local waters. Prints will also be available for purchase. This event is free to attend and open to the public. Come support local artists and stay for the locally brewed hard kombucha!
BONUS: Hakuna Wear will be doing a pop-up during the show, come check out their stay-put wetsuits and swimwear! AND we've got a pile of some of the last copies of Sea Together Magazine Issue 001 available for sale as well.
We exist to be a creative light in the community through art + music. Join us Friday night for an evening of local artist and be inspired by either the art, music or conversations! Kids are welcome so bring your whole crew and we will have interactive art for the kids.

The goal of S3 is to provide a platform for Scripps graduate students to present and discuss their research with colleagues from all curricular groups, to foster interdisciplinary collaboration amongst the student population, and to introduce the new first-years to the wide variety of research Scripps has to offer. The presentations should be designed to be understandable not just to specific fields, but to the broader Scripps community.
Thanks to all the folks who joined us to celebrate the San Diego launch of Sea Together Magazine, hosted at Juneshine in North Park! Read about the event on the Sea Together blog here.
