On Friday June 18th Tahoe Public Art (TPA) teamed up with Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort to unveil “Futures Past” a sculptural work of art by New York based artist Kate Raudenbush, originally created for Burning Man. This temple of intricate metal work that embodies a balance (or imbalance) of technological development and nature is the premiere temporary public art to be installed by TPA on the shore of Lake Tahoe, which will be exhibited through October 1st.
For the opening reception, local guests were invited to come view the environmental art sculpture and take part in a conversation instilled by the work. As the sculpture transitioned from bending light under the afternoon sky to glowing under a network of stars Raudenbush spoke about her artistic vision, process, and mission within the installation.
“Future’s Past” is the premiere work of art to be unveiled along the “Tahoe Public Art Trail” which will expand with 6 - 8 new sites around Lake Tahoe in 2018.
Throughout the summer, TPA is hosting an event at Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort on the third Thursday of each month at sunset from June - September for the public to come visit the art and learn more about its meaning from the words of Raudenbush.
