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 about our vulnerable mountain home. I will be working with the people who tend it, love it and depend on it, and mobilizing perspectives to create a deeper sense of connection between them, between members of our community and the land we all share.

Belonging is a community arts initiative led by Nevada County Arts Council Artist-in-Residence Ruth Chase, generously funded in part by California Arts Council through its Artists Activating Communities Program.
