50 Years Ago . . . inspired by the events of 1969”

An exhibition in the Coronado Community Center Gallery - the C3 

A half-century ago, man set foot on the moon, thousands of young people gathered in New York’s Catskill Mountains for a music festival that became a cultural milestone, and the war in Vietnam dragged on while protest and resistance grew. It was the year that Sesame Street premiered on Public TV, British troops were first sent into Northern Ireland, the Manson Family murders took place, Richard Nixon became the 37th President of the United States, and much more. In San Diego, the San Diego Padres played their inaugural season of baseball and Coronado changed forever with the opening of the San Diego Coronado Bay Bridge as well as the Coronado Cays. This exhibition features artwork inspired by the events of 1969.

Monday - Friday 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
