Originally, sanctuaries were natural locations, such as groves or hills where the divine or sacred was believed to be especially present By the use of such places as a haven, the term has come to be used as a place where someone or something is protected or given shelter, as refuge or safety from pursuit, persecution, or other danger, typically used by displaced persons, refugees, and homeless people. This theme extends to what it means to have a home or a place of safety and what it means to not have one, issues we are currently facing globally, nationally, and in Oakland and the Bay Area. Juror rené de Guzman is the Director of Exhibition Strategy and Senior Curator of Art at the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA). Before joining OMCA in 2007, de Guzman was Director of Visual Arts at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, a contemporary art center in San Francisco.
