Generously funded in part by California Arts Council through its Artists Activating Communities Program.
In the year to come, artist Ruth Chase (that’s me) will lead an artist-in-residence with Nevada County Arts for a new initiative called Belonging. Belonging is a community art program that centers around our vulnerable mountain home and the people who tend it, love it and depend on it in Nevada County, CA.
BELONGING PROJECT BROKEN DOWN
- Artist Ruth Chase, thats me, will interview featured community members about how they connect with nature, the land, and our community.
- In the end I will produce paintings that share the insight taken from this site and the interviews about what it means to belong.
- A short film about this journey will be produced.
- The use of social media will inform this project. How YOU contribute on the Facebook group page will have an effect on the outcome of the paintings and short film.
- YOU will be invited to participate in opportunities such as workshops.
- An exhibition will share the results of this entire project, BELONGING, a collaboration with Nevada County and thankfully …… YOU.
BEGINS this JUNE in Nevada County
