Parkeology

Public Program // 2015-Present // Balboa Park, San Diego, CA

Parkeology is a live event and tv series that unearths lesser known sites and stories of Balboa Park. Parkeology host events that explore popular and obscure locations in the park, from the secret lives of artifacts to closeted histories, from underground models to reimagined organ pavilions.

Each event is featured by Channel Parkeology, a web-tv series directed by Ren Ebel

 

Parkeology partners with museums, archivists, artists, and locals to host concerts, plays, oral histories, and tours. Each temporary Parkeology session is an invitation to illuminate the unseen, unheard, and untouched of Balboa Park. Participants become scouts that snoop, wander, and speculate on park pasts and presences.
