Big doings at the park for the culture minded visitor. A major exhibit at the Museum will feature finalists chosen from over 700 entries and includes 49 works in a variety of media. This is the 30th year and the official name uses the Roman numerals. Since those get really hard to decipher after you get past XX, I just use the Arabic. Did you know the next Superbowl will be “50?” – not L!
Yosemite Renaissance is an annual competition/exhibition which is intended to encourage diverse artistic interpretations of Yosemite. Its goals are to bring together the works of serious contemporary artists; to establish a continuum with past artists; and to foster visual art as a major interpretive medium of the landscape and a stimulus to the protection of the environment.
Yosemite Renaissance is a non-profit organization for the arts of Yosemite, supported by the NPS, DNC and the Mariposa County Board of Supervisors.
The opening reception is Friday, February 27. Yall come now, ya hear? The exhibit will be on view until May.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “What’s rubbish to you might be art to me.” – A wise old man.
