    DeltaFusion Background

    In celebration of the rich cultural heritage of the city of Stockton and the San Joaquin valley, Theatre Arts Chair Cathie McClellan and Visual Arts Chair Brett DeBoer, initiated the DeltaFusion project, which uses visual and performing arts as a means to highlight one of the most culturally diverse areas in the country. For the past few weeks, members of Pacific and the community have been participating in workshops to create larger-than-life puppets and masks and prepare the performance that takes place on Saturday, July 23, the anniversary of the incorporation of Stockton as a city.
