Join Berkeley Art Center Executive Director, Suzanne Tan for an intimate exploration of the natural world, inspired by the Center’s idyllic setting in Live Oak Park and above Codornices Creek. The exhibition includes video installation, artists who work with ephemeral and recycled materials, and performative and interactive components that blur the physical separation of the gallery and its natural environment. The private tour of the exhibit will be followed by a leisurely walk on the historic paths near Codornices Creek.  No dogs, please.
