Detours: Tahoe City 2011
A self guided walking tour of site specific installation art by 15 local and national artists will be installed in Tahoe City, and promises be the highlight of the many summer activities located in beautiful North Lake Tahoe. Detours: Tahoe City 2011, is a similar project that has taken place in Los Angeles, Santa Monica and Venice, California with much acclaim. Tahoe City is a quaint alpine town with a permanent population of just under 4,000 that swells to approximately 20,000 during the summer months. At 6200 feet elevation, the days are warm with cool evenings. Strolling through town is a favorite pastime while enjoying spectacular views of the lake.
Maps of the exhibition sites will be available, placed strategically throughout the Tahoe City downtown area. The viewing public will learn about each artist (with the map in hand) and read a statement by the artist and where their work can be seen. This project will draw a large crowd of residents and visitors alike.
An opening celebration will take place at North Tahoe Arts located at 380 N. Lake Blvd., Tahoe City, CA. 96145. The date and time of the Opening is Friday, August 5th, 2011 from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served, as well as, performance art entertainment! Come and join the artists and learn more about this fascinating way of making art. The exhibit will be up through August and September 2011.
They rely on a foundation or an institution to have a budgeted stipend. In the case of the 'home grown' variety such as Detours: Tahoe City 2011, funding comes from programs like Kickstarter. Other than that, they do it for the love of producing this kind of work and receive no monetary amount. . .not very sustainable, is it?
