Mesa Gallery presents Cosecha: An Exhibition About Food

November 17, 2023 | San Diego Community College District

 “Cosecha” will Showcase Food in All its Meanings; just in time for Thanksgiving

San Diego Mesa College Art Gallery invites the community to gather for the exhibition Cosecha: An Exhibition About Food through December 14, 2023. Cosecha (a Spanish word meaning “harvest”) is a multimedia group show that serves up a visual harvest drawing on the various meanings of the central theme. In the gallery several narratives are braided together: food as a symbol of both individual taste and communal joy, food as performance and indulgence of the senses, or food as abject and monstrous. Featuring 40 artists, each artwork is presented as a delicacy on a party platter where each artist brings a piece of their heart to the potluck. 

Both the art and curation of Cosecha demonstrate the collective vision of the Museum Studies class. Together, students designed the call for art flier, juried the art submissions, wrote the press release and also contributed to the physical installation of the show.  

Gallery Hours

Noon to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday. (Or by appointment.) Closed Fridays, Weekends & Holidays.
