NEVADA CITY—Poetry on Preserves & Art In Nature Walk

NEVADA CITY—Join Art In Nature commissioned artists Elizabeth Winters & Amanda Post along Cascade Canal Trail for a guided walk through their site-specific installation “Without Walls”. A collaboration between the artists and Mother Nature, “Without Walls” consists of a series of handmade frames constructed from natural materials found on the forest floor. Swinging from branches and nestled within boughs, the frames invite trail users to pause and appreciate the natural beauty before them. During the walk, the group will be joined by Poetry on Preserves commissioned poet, Ingrid Keriotis, for a reading of select poems including her poem for Celebration of Trails, “My California Is.”

When: Saturday, June 1 from 10:00-11:00am
Where: Meet at the Cascade Canal Trail parking lot located off Gracie Road (See below for directions)
