Truckee, California, June 27, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Ever looked beyond the bark of a tree or swirl of a climbing vine to see the beauty of the elements that make up nature? Trails & Vistas is presenting the opportunity to do just that at their Art + Nature + Community Art Hike.
WHAT: Art + Nature + Community Art Hike
"The first art hike was created to take art into nature, to form a connection between place, art, and people. Placing art in the beauty of nature is a gentle reminder of our need to protect it. There is a common thread running through all of my recent work: the water and land, celebrating nature with the use of poetry, art, and music. Each art hike uses the participation by the individual to experience the art as a sensual, intellectual, and often a spiritual experience."
Nancy Tieken Lopez, Event founder and artist
WHEN: September 9 & 10, 2017, Starting at 9:00 a.m.
TICKETS: Tickets available at trailsandvistas.org
Children (ages 5 to 12) $12
Located in the majestic Sierras, Trails & Vistas plays host to a collective experience where art, nature, and audience intersect. Guides will lead three-hour long hikes starting in 15-minute increments winding through 12 site-specific art installations. Participants will enjoy music, performance art, ephemeral sculpture and literary art pieces placed along an earthen trail.
Each hiker is encouraged to slow down, read the poetry hanging from the limbs, touch the trunks and bark, close one’s eyes to enjoy a ballad or poem, breathe deeply and listen to the language of nature.
