Join We Players for an action-packed afternoon on Alcatraz, SATURDAY, JULY 23, 2011. We'll explore the island via a treasure hunt, view the current gallery exhibit displaying youth perspectives on the Alcatraz themes, enjoy food and drink, group conversation, and create a collective art project, which will remain on the island for public viewing in the cell house gallery through mid-August.

I killed a man. His mother’s tears and my mother’s tears
had no place to rest. They fell upon my heart, woke up

The Aztecs say the hummingbird is a warrior. He beats back
darkness with iridescent wings. He sucks the evil out of
men, leaves them with a thirst for beauty.
