With the exhibition Sacred Ground / Tierra Sagrada, the group revisits the process of designing and creating an alfombra, a colorful carpet of dyed sawdust and organic materials intended to provide a holy ground for the city’s impressive religious processions to walk upon during Holy Week. Examining themes of ephemerality, multisensory experience, and cross-cultural exchange, this exhibition highlights the value of multicultural engagement to the field of art education.
