Photo taken at Nikiko Masumoto's Califas introductory dinner. The ultimate goal is to have an intimate and one of a kind experience sharing art, responding to one another and journeying through the valley. At the dinner, Nikiko asked each artist to bring something that inspired them.
Artists, community members, and friends gathered to celebrate the featured artists, make lanterns, write letters to those they have lost, create playlists of the songs of California, and more at the opening of the Califas Festival at Intersection for the Arts in San Francisco. Attendees also got a sneak peak of the upcoming Alleluia, The Road with performances by the cast and a reading of a José Montoya poem by Sean San José.
