Art of Recovery artist Yeu Q. Nguyen invites the community to an intimate gathering to celebrate the launch of her work, High Hopes, a temporary public art installation inspired by the tradition of Tibetan prayer flags set inside one of Tongva Park’s metal overlook structures. The installation features 200 colorful flags filled with personal aspirations of hope made by Santa Monica’s community members at the Art of Recovery supported concert series, Americana in the Park, this past September. This work explores resilience as a communal ritual and re-imagines art in public spaces as a sanctuary for collective healing and unification. The launch event will include flying bubbles, live music, a healing meditation and art-making activities for all ages.
