Architect Louis Kahn's 1965 masterpiece, the Salk Institute, is an independent, non-profit, scientific research institute overlooking the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla, CA.

 

Dr. Jonas Salk, developer of the polio vaccine, approached Kahn after having been gifted the spectacular 27-acre setting by the City of San Diego in 1960. Salk sought to found and build a biological research center, adamant that its design would explore the implications of the sciences for humanity and be "a facility worthy of a visit by Picasso.” The result of their alliance is a collaborative environment lauded for both its functionality and striking aesthetics. Both descendants of Russian-Jewish parents who had immigrated to the U.S., Salk and Kahn forged a deep connection well beyond their mutual effort. The original buildings of the Salk Institute are constructed of concrete, teak, lead, glass, and special steel, and were designated as a historical landmark in 1991. The entire site was deemed eligible by the California Historical Resources Commission in 2006 for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

6:30 pm     BlessingAtlachinolli, Aztec Dancers   

                    The Aztec Dance (Danza Azteca in Spanish or Mi’totiliztli in                      Nahuatl), is a fundamental manifestation of the artistic and                      cultural spirit of the native people of Mexico. A fusion of                          the region’s age-old history with the integration of pre-                            Columbian and Christian rituals, it represents humanity’s                          eternal search for cosmic harmony and integration, both                          body and his spirit.
