About the Event

Our annual exhibition of local art and music returns with a ritualistic mélange of paintings, sculpture, multimedia art, and live performances. A transborder team of artists and musicians will invade the gothic halls of the historic St. Paul’s Cathedral in Bankers Hill and fill it to the brim with works that explore connections between the earthly and the divine. This three-day, community-based event will include new works, world premieres, and thought provoking performances featuring some of the most exciting creative voices in Southern California, Tijuana, and Baja California curated by Diana Benavidez and Leslie Ann Leytham. Join us as we take a pilgrimage through sacred spaces, profane realities, and everything in between!
