Inspired by California

May 15, 2010  |  Art Events, Blog, Featured  |  No Comments

I have been invited to participate in Inspired by California a project where Kirby Scudder artist and Mark Halfmoon, filmmaker will travel California to talk to Californians about those things that inspire us about this great state. 900 great California stories in 90 days.

I’ve created a poster which will be sold to bring this trip to your town!

On May 18th 6 of us artists will be live painting the bus to be used for this trip.  This will take place during the Amgen tour of California bike race at the Boardwalk. Come join us and let us know what inspires you about California!

Kirby Scudder is Director of the Santa Cruz Institute of Contemporary Arts in Santa Cruz, California and an accomplished Artist.  Mark Halfmoon is an award winning Filmmaker and Producer with 30 years of Television, Radio and Film experience.  Together the 2 have chosen to take a road trip around the State of California to find out what inspires people about the State of California.  At a time when language about the State is frequently negative Inspired by California seeks to ask whats great about this state.
