Desert Arts 3View
This will be an online event in 3 segments that celebrates our community’s triumphant creativity, overcoming challenges via art and imaginative thinking, and visions for a creative future.
1View. We’ll start with a look back at some ambitious projects that overcame failure and disaster to inspire and amaze us, with a panel discussion featuring artists of Black Rock City.
2View. We’ll meet artists responding to our current pandemic reality and be inspired by how they are creating artworks that connect people globally in times of social distancing.
3View. Step behind the scenes and join beloved artists for virtual tours of their studios and creative processes, and see how people are continuing their plans and visions for bringing art to a future Black Rock City.
In between segments, visit our virtual lobbies where you can tour the artist gallery, chat with other participants, or jump in to a live, art-themed Game Show!
