Art Lab 03: From the Minds of The Klines


San Diego Art Prize Panel Discussion
12:00-1:00PM / Lounge G
With Larry and Debby Kline, James Enos, James and Brennan Hubbell, moderated by Phyllis Van Doren, Editor of San Diego Home and Garden Lifestyles magazine.

2:00 – 3:00 pm / Center Lounge
The Klines experiment with a cool new bit of technology that allows artists to create 3 dimensional hand drawings. Discover the remarkable possibilities with them and get a feel for the true studio experience as The Klines play with this innovative tool. The 3Doodler™ was recently brought to market through a campaign (the Klines are independent artists and have no direct affiliation with 3Doodler™ Company).

1:00 – 2:00 pm / Center Lounge F
In this performance piece, The Klines will have lunch in the Center Lounge. The public can enjoy and join in the creative process as they create art from the detritus at the table. Watch as napkins, straws, toothpicks and other bits of flotsam are transformed into a sculpture. “My Dinner with The Klines,” the book and DVD set created from the series, will also be on view along with short videos created while dining.  The final work will be photographed for possible inclusion in the next volume of “My Dinner with the Klines.”

5:00 – 6:00 pm / Meet at
Come along with “Roving Docents” Debby and Larry Kline for a tour of the galleries exhibiting at Art San Diego. The Klines will lead an impromptu discussion of selected works. Wear your walking shoes.

1:00 – 2:00 pm / Center Lounge F
Visitors are invited to play “The Game at Hand,” a hand-made chess set and a poignant commentary on US involvement in the Middle East. At a distance, this piece appears to be simply a beautifully hand-made chess set. Closer inspection, however, reveals the futility of this game. As viewers are encouraged to play, it becomes clear that this game cannot be conducted fairly even with conscientious intentions. This set has toured the nation and was featured at the US Chess Championships.

5:00 – 6:00 pm / Meet at Booth #1
Come along with “Roving Docents” Debby and Larry Kline for a tour of the  galleries exhibiting at Art San Diego. The Klines will lead an impromptu discussion of selected works. Wear your walking shoes.
