Fresh Baked Conversation in the Sierras

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.
