You are welcome to stop by for this informal event starting at 5:30 p.m. Enjoy artwork projected on the cathedral’s façade in honor of Native American Heritage Month

Projecting Grace is a monthly projection of images on the façade of Grace Cathedral based around a theme. Some of the work and all of the inspiration is courtesy of Amplifier, an organization which gathers artists to create art that amplifies social justice issues. The art projected speaks to our values of inclusion and justice for all, and through this project we hope to connect to others, something art can do so beautifully.
