Sunday, July 18 @ 8:30 pm – 10:30 pm
This is an informal event, and you are welcome to stop by between 8:30 and 10:30 p.m. while Dear America projects messages of Asian American Pacific Islander solidarity, resilience, strength and encouragement on the cathedral’s façade, in response to anti-Asian violence.
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.
About the Artist
Responding to the growing epidemic of violence against Asian Americans, Dear America, a new grassroots mobile public art project led by Bay Area artist Christy Chan projects the art works of Asian American artists on the walls of high rise buildings throughout the Bay Area — mostly without permission — on select evenings now through July 30th. The 4- to 15-story tall projections beam images and messages of resilience in English and eight different Asian languages, including, among others, Chinese, Taiwanese, Japanese, and Thai. The project features works by the following artists: Cathy Lu, Christine Wong Yap, Christy Chan, Jenifer K Wofford, Mel Chin x For Freedoms and Related Tactics. With the exception of the event at Grace Cathedral, the guerilla projections are unsanctioned and intentionally installed without gaining permission from municipalities and local corporations.
