The Space Between

All are Welcome to Join for the
Opening Reception
April 9 | 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.

In The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, a young Toltec man seeking to become a shaman realizes that though he himself is made of stars, he is not a star, but rather in the space between them. He is light. In this discovery, he understands that this harmonious force is intent. The light between the stars is the intent with which we move through space; it gives shape to our interpersonal relations and can scrawl the boundaries of a shared imaginary.

A free Spanish-language tour The Space Between, curated by Armando Minjarez, is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, May 15. Claudia Yaujar-Amarao of AB&C Bilingual Services will lead the tour.
