Today, on Sanctum's first Sunday, people collected in many different ways to hear a city. Halloween revellers took some moments away from the chaos of late night celebrations to hear Sara Zaltash on a third iteration of her call to prayer. As a misty Sunday morning broke in to a sunny autumn day others read and discussed the papers, danced with Theaster, listened in to harmonies, stories and sets. The sounds of the night continue on at the end of Sanctum's opening weekend.
