Tahoe Public Art recently announced the unveiling of the premiere sculptural work of art placed along the new Tahoe Public Art Trail, featuring Kate Raudenbush's FUTURE'S PAST, currently exhibited at Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort through October 1, 2017.
In 2018 TPA will be commissioning new works of art and placing existing works of art at six newly identified locations for the Tahoe Public Art Trail on the CA and NV sides of Lake Tahoe.
The Tahoe Public Art Trail program exhibits temporary, semi permanent, and permanent art at public, private, and resort locations around the Lake Tahoe Basin. The goal of the program is to have a transformational effect on the greater Lake Tahoe community through art created by local, national, and international artists that respond to and incorporate the local environment.
"While artists respond to the public experience of contemporary culture, public art helps create a sense of place in our communities by stimulating dialogue around current social and environmental challenges and solutions," states Mia Hanak, Executive Director, Tahoe Public Art.
The Tahoe Public Art Trail, seeded with Indigenous knowledge of the region and inspired by its natural grandeur, is designed to engage audiences in contemplating their civic responsibility and instill lasting values that embrace the preservation of the unique and fragile ecological diversity of the Lake Tahoe Basin.
"It is the goal of Tahoe Public Art to enhance the beauty of Lake Tahoe and bring awareness to the impact of the human element on the region," said Steve Miller, Chairman of TPA.
