I AM HERe Public Art Installation
May 18 – June 16, 2019

Opening Reception: June 7, 5-7PM
Robinson Plaza
132 Main St., Nevada City, CA

I AM HERE explores how women find and maintain their sense of belonging in our changing rural landscape. Lead Artist Ruth Chase will elicit perspectives through the use of social media, public art-making salons, a short film, and an interactive public installation called I AM HERE. I AM HERE is, ultimately, a community conversation- a way to connect, explore and empower.


Ruth invites the public to submit images, stories, and opinions, and to answer Saturday morning I AM HERE questions to engage the community in a conversation about the women who live in Nevada County and to foster community collaboration.


“Projects like this have the power to build community relationships,
bridge gaps and bring people together”  – Chase


SHOP I AM HERE to support the project


I AM HERE is an initiative of Nevada County Art Council led by Artist Ruth Chase, generously funded in part by California Arts Council through its Artists in Communities Program.
