Spring public programs: exploring process and place

Sunday, March 25, 12–5pm
Open House
Meet Headlands artists, see work in progress, attend performances and readings, enjoy a house-made lunch, and more.

Sunday, April 8, 12pm
Desire Trails
Desire paths are well-trodden trails created by foot traffic, where the ground becomes imprinted evidence of a place that wants to be discovered and the people who seek it out. Embark on multilayered journeys into the geologic folded and faulted terrain of the Marin Headlands on guided hikes led by artists and scientists who interpret the complex chronology of local ideas, rocks, and land. Led by Sebastian Alvarez, Andrea Steves, Yulia Pinkusevich, Francois Hughes, Minoosh Zomorodinia, Astrid Kaemmerling, and Tara Shi.
