Presented in collaboration with the Contemporary Jewish Museum, experience a unique outdoor program that combines the joy of the Marin Headlands, Jewish ritual, and art. The walk is organized in conjunction with Annie Albagli: We Become [Vessels], a video-based installation now on view at The Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco. We Become [Vessels] combines imagery and field recordings of the Headlands with Jewish ritual objects to offer visitors new ways to move through space, time, and familiar and unfamiliar places. 

During this hike led by Artist Annie Albagli, guests are invited to experience the majestic landscape of the Headlands as a means to reframe our relationships to the natural environment, reimagine notions of interconnectedness, and explore the boundaries of the self. The 3.5-mile hike will include pauses for discussion, observations, and brief readings from materials Annie used in her research for We Become [Vessels], and will be punctuated by a short activation of the Marin Headlands military bunkers using the shofar. 

What to expect: 

  • This mid-level exertion hike is 3.5 miles round trip, and will take approximately three hours. 
  • Dress for unpredictable weather; warm layers and checking the weather in advance are recommended. 
  • The hike will start and end at Headlands Center for the Arts (944 Simmonds Road, Sausalito, CA 94965). Participants will gather in The Commons (area between Building 944 and Building 945) at 12PM before beginning the hike, and will return at approximately 3PM.
