The JCCSF hosts a pop-up to celebrate Tu B’shvat, sometimes referred to as the birthday for trees, with a multi-faceted mindfulness experience to deepen the connection to nature and a live earth art installation with artist Day Schildkret on Saturday, January 26, 2019 from 10 am to 4 pm at East Garden of Yerba Buena Gardens (between YBCA and 3rd Street).
Day, who has inspired tens of thousands of people around the globe with his large-scale Morning Altars installation, brings ephemeral art to the collective human imagination. He has guided people of all ages toward renewing their relationship to nature, creativity and impermanence with the ritual and practice of earth art. Day is the author of Morning Altars: A 7-Step Practice to Nourish Your Spirit Through Nature, Art and Ritual.
