Sanctuary Print Shop

Sunday, Jan 20, 2019 - 12:00 PM-1:15 PM

Sanctuary Print Shop is a project by Sergio De La Torre and Chris Treggiari. In a moment when the world seems more divisive than ever, these artists give us the opportunity to reimagine the possibility of connecting with one another and finding refuge in activism. Transforming the museum into a space for collaboration, dialogue, and action, De La Torre and Treggiari invite visitors to state their truths and work collectively to create protest posters. This project originated at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, exploring the history of the sanctuary  ordinance in the state of California. Here at MCASD, the timeline documenting this history will examine San Diego’s relationship to immigration. 

Through a series of workshops and  conversations with immigrants, lawyers, activists, and others, visitors will have the opportunity and the tools to raise their voice as they activate the print shop. Join us on select weekend dates beginning December 2 as we create posters and foster dialogue in a place of safety. This program is free to attend.
