Works San José and SOAC came together to produce the “Tierra y Raices” gallery. Community members got to step through La Plaza’s doors to embrace the down-to-earth art installations by San José’s finest artists. The co-produced exhibition went on from March 10 – 31 2023.
A special performance by MovingGround collaborators was created for the closing reception of the gallery. This interactive, site-specific experience encapsulated our senses of sight, sound, movement, and touch as we connected with the land and trees, celebrating our shared ancestry of earth and roots (tierra y raíces).
