A whimsical procession led by Animal Cracker Conspiracy will guide guests from the Mingei to the Spreckles Organ Pavilion. The brief journey will be led by stilt-dancing performers and puppetry, a memorable hallmark of this unique, San Diego-based multi-disciplinary performance company, which is known for creative visual theater experiences.

Upon arrival at the Spreckles Organ Pavilion, guests will enjoy the premiere of AIGA’s third Annual Projecting Futures exhibit. The immersive motion graphic experience showcases the work of designers of all levels from across the San Diego – Tijuana region.
