A new commission for Montalvo, O OAKS OH!, begins to address the health of Montalvo’s land and to focus on the sudden death of its local ancient oak trees. A Day of Gathering/Public Learn-In will be organized on August 13 in Montalvo’s Historic Villa bringing together scholars, spiritual leaders, experts and leaders to share their learning on both the perils of Sudden Oak Death and the ancient spiritual majesty of the oak. Ukeles’ project will conclude on December 2, 2009 with the installation of a video artwork projection and a second public conversation and performance.
