Bread & Salt's shaping up to be an arts hub

Logan Heights building is home to a growing number of galleries and art studios

Bread & Salt is shaping up to be an important San Diego arts hub. The large warehouse-like building at 1955 Julian Ave. in Logan Heights is now home to six galleries and art studios and a new inner courtyard area that makes navigating the space much easier.

“For the first time, we’ll have distinct gallery spaces,” says James Brown, the man behind the space and principal of Public Architecture + Planning, which is housed in Bread & Salt. “It’s starting to work more like the building we envisioned.”

From 5 to 10 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, Bread & Salt will host an open house to show off the building’s tenants. The event includes Pan Y Sal Gallery featuring photographs by David Harrison, an installation by Alexander Jarman, samplings from the David Richardson Research Initiative, photographer David Fokos’ work in Pulse Gallery, Raymond Beaver in Not an Exit Gallery, music by Jason Lane and Scott Caligure in the Silo Room and more.

There are still vacancies in the building, which Brown says will eventually be filled by a café and artist live / work studios. The development plans for the building also include activating the alleyway behind the space and using it as a pilot project to demonstrate how similar alleys around the city can be used in creative ways.
