Water Without: Art Installation

May 10, 2018

April 22 through May 27

For Earth Day, on Sunday, April 22, prepare to be amazed as National Natural Landmark Burney Falls, the Shasta County waterfall that Teddy Roosevelt called “The Eighth Wonder of the World,” cascades down the Great Steps.

Our 2018 theme is truth, and our artist in residence, Sukey Bryan, will address the truth about climate change. Bryan’s work explores the interaction and transformation of natural elements. She is interested in the resonance between the cycles and elements in nature and human experience.

Step inside the cathedral to see Fire Within, on display until June 3.
