Join the Nasher Sculpture Center as we celebrate Mountain Moving Day and honor the power of the creative process to awaken and expand our human potential. This family-friendly event features artist-led projects, interactive resources, and work on view from artist Senga Nengudi. Mountain Moving Day at the Nasher is a gender-inclusive celebration.
About Mountain Moving Day
In 2002 artist Senga Nengudi created Mountain Moving Day, a ritual celebration to empower, unify, and heal women. Nengudi offers this ritual to communities within and outside her reach through a set of instructions published on her website. Intended to be held on the third Sunday in March (during Women’s History Month), though possible to be held at any time and place, the project asks women to celebrate individually, amongst friends, or amongst strangers, to spiritually and symbolically move barriers placed in front of them.
