OPEN SPACE – BASQUE OVEN
Fresh baked conversation in the Sierras
On June 13th, from 2-6pm, Sierra Nevada College’s MFA-Interdisciplinary Arts Program will host a public, community event as part of our on-going “Open Space Series” at a reconstructed Basque oven at Kyburz Flat in the Tahoe National Forest. Firing up the oven, we will feed visitors and host talks by guests, including Christina Barr, Executive Director of Nevada Humanities. The conversations will touch on place-making and encampments, pointing to the program’s ongoing dialogue around a multi-tiered relationship to our environment. Visitors will get to explore solar dye stations, map-making, and periscope-building. The MFA-IA Streamline Mobile Gallery will be on-site with a pop-up Basque exhibit. There is limited capacity in the meadow, so please RSVP to the event HERE.
We had an excellent turnout for our Embodied Place: Observations and Notations closing reception and panel discussion on February 27th, 2015. Visitors flooded the galleries and there was standing room only for the panel, which took place directly after the opening in the Holman Arts and Media building on the SNC campus.Read More
Director Russell Dudley and Program Coordinator Julia Schwadron represented the MFA-IA Program at the College Art Association Conference in New York last month. The visit was a great way to spread the word about the program’s launch this coming Summer 2015 as well as to catch up with friends and colleagues and attend panel discussions.Read More
