Headlands Center for the Arts celebrates its 40th anniversary with a free open house on Sunday, October 16 from 12:00 noon—6:00 p.m.

Along with an opportunity to roam the various buildings of the campus, meet current artists, and experience works in progress, the day will feature films and performances by Headlands Center alumni, including jazz musician Beth Custer and dance collective Fog Beast. The Project Space will showcase installations by Artists in Residence Hannah Jayanti and Weston Teruya.

Lunch is available from the Mess Hall until 4:30 p.m., and a birthday toast will be held at the Commons at 5:30 p.m.

Headlands Center alumni Artists in Chorus, led by Monique Jenkinson (AIR ’17), will sing happy birthday to Headlands. Cake and a champagne toast will follow.
