Breathe. Feel that rush of cool air fill your lungs and gently exhale. Enter your thoughts and decipher the code of your mind. This year has made an impact on not only us, but Mother Nature herself. How are you related to the earth?  You share the same air. You twirl with her on her daily pirouette. TAC invites you to join us as we reflect on our identities and intertwined relationships with the planet we share. Inspired by the exhibitions Ragnar Kjartansson: The Visitors and Beyond Infinity: Contemporary Art after Kusama, we are calling folks to join us in activities that prompt self reflection in one's connection to the planet. 

"Our earth is only one polka dot among a million stars in the cosmos.

Polka dots are a way to infinity. When we obliterate nature and our

bodies with polka dots, we become part of the unity of our environment".
