The Nomadic Labyrinth by Paz de la Calzada - University of San Francisco

Recently hired in 2013 as the creative consulting director of Manresa Gallery, I noticed that there was very little gallery foot traffic that existed from the university students and faculty. The Nomadic Labyrinth established a playful dialogue with urban space and explored the relationship between art, spirituality and daily life. The San Francisco Arts Commission funded the creation of Calzada's project and the installation was the perfect bridge between Manresa Gallery and University of San Francisco. Huge crowds of students and visitors walked the Labyrinth each day and then visited the gallery. Manresa's Interfaith concept acknowledges the varied beliefs at the University and around the world.  I am proud to report that there is now a partnership with the USF Museum Studies department and we hired a faculty member to curate an exhibition in 2016.
