These photographs from 2014 are not great, but reposting them to refresh a suggestion for an outing appropriate for these times – entertaining, outdoors and admission-free on a plaza large enough to allow ample room for spreading out.
The painterly projection of Xavier de Richemont‘s San Antonio Saga (click there for much better photographs) sweep masterfully across the façade of San Fernando Cathedral, founded by Canary Islanders in 1731. Accompanied by lively music, the massive kaleidoscopic collages mesmerize those on Main Plaza.
The Main Plaza Conservancy offers the colorful screenings on Tuesdays and Sundays at 7:30, 8 and 8:30 p.m.; and on Fridays and Saturdays at 9, 9:30 and 10 p.m.

Ahhh… reminds me of a sound and light show during Muertos at Soledad many years ago.

Not sure whether that one was his, but de Richemont has executed his illuminated art projects around the world. They sure make fancier packages than Christo’s standard plain wrapped landmarks.
