More details about Convergence! This is going to be a very exciting art event. It's a partnership of Cabrillo's Artist in Residence program and the Monument Conservancy, with the artist organization A Ship in the Woods. From their website: "With 48 established and emerging artists working in tandem with historians and scientists, CONVERGENCE showcases thought-provoking artworks exploring the site from a range of disciplines. Throughout the park, viewers will be able to experience immersive artworks including video projections on the lighthouse; interactive installations, a secret garden, experimental sound installations, a tea ceremony using endemic plants from the Cabrillo National Monument, large scale exhibits made from recycled plastic, performance art, spoken word, mobile augmented reality, projection mapping, kinetic sculptures, sound and light performances, and opportunities for audience participation during the Nov.14th event."
One of the participating artists is Harrell Fletcher, who was a visiting professor at Oregon State while I was getting my BFA there. He is an internationally known pioneer of social art, someone who truly makes a difference. I am gratified to see that the AIR program has grown into something that can involve artists of this stature. I can't wait to see what he and the others come up with for this event.
November 14, 4pm-11pm, artist reception 6pm with current and past AIR's (I'll be there). More details here, along with directions and a link to buy tickets. Kids under 12 are free, and the Lighthouse tower will be OPEN! Bring a flashlight!
