Join WEN for the Yerba Buena Center (YBCA) ConVerge Summer Solstice Walk with artist Paz de la Calzada, featuring her public installation The Nomadic Labyrinth on the YBCA plaza of 701 Mission Street. In many cultures, the solstice is a time when both plants and planets offer a special opportunity to tune into nature, the seasonal shift, and take a moment for personal reflection. Labyrinths have been used for millennia as a tool for meditation. Inspired in an Arabic floral pattern, the carpets used in this installation have been collected from several recycling companies in the Bay Area and they represent decorative classic western patterns. Explore, walk, or meditate in the labyrinth and experience art as a transformational tool.
WEN members will meet on the front plaza of the Grand Lobby of the YBCA to network and celebrate together. The event itself is free and there will be a cash bar. Register for this free event athttp://wenjune19.eventbrite.com for more information and to help connect you with the group.
