Cabrillo National Monument says
CONVERGENCE is a group exhibition curated by A SHIP IN THE WOODS in partnership with Cabrillo National Monument Conservancy and the Cabrillo National Monument Artist-In-Residence program on Saturday, Nov. 14. This ambitious exhibition of site-specific artworks and installations features local and national and international artists interpreting the convergences and fragmentations of land and water, as well as the habitats and people that are part of the rich ecosystem of the Point Loma peninsula.

This collaboration between A SHIP IN THE WOODS and Cabrillo National Monument Conservancy will meld art and science to create a unique series of experiential art projects communicating the value of the region's organic mixture of plants, animals, landforms and waterways that make up the bio-diverse landmass. CONVERGENCE seeks to inspire both the viewers' appreciation for their individual and collective actions towards environmental sustainability.

Likewise, other artists will explore the historical relevance and cultural significance of the people that have lived in and around Cabrillo. With over 35 established and emerging artists working in tandem with historians and scientists, CONVERGENCE showcases provocative, thought-provoking, interdisciplinary artworks exploring the site from a range of disciplines. Throughout the park, viewers will be able to experience immersive artworks including installations you can walk into, a secret garden, experimental sound installations, a tea ceremony using endemic plants of San Diego, 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. 14 event.

The show's adventurous lineup of innovative artists include Alan Sonfist, Harrell Fletcher, Chris Johanson, Johanna Jackson, Scott Pollach, Amy Alexander, Neil Kendricks, Rebecca Webb, Andrea Polli, Aurora Robson Alllison Wiese, Brian Dick, Gareth Walsh, Trevor Amery, Jay Noland, Chris Manzione, and Keenan Hartsen, Kim among others.
