Culver Center of the Arts
Jackrabbit Homestead Panel
Saturday, September 28, 2013, 3pm - 5pm
Join artist Kim Stringfellow and artist Chris Carraher who lives in a Jackrabbit Homestead cabin, along with curator Tyler Stallings, to discuss the exhibition and history of the Small Tract Act.
Chris Carraher lives and works in a vintage homestead in Wonder Valley and has been in the Mojave Desert for over 20 years. The homestead cabins and the desert as both physical and metaphysical landscape have figured prominently in her artwork and her community and environmental activism. She co-directed the Wonder Valley Homestead Cabin Festival in 2008, a pivotal event in bringing the homesteads into community social, political, and aesthetic consciousness. She is currently completing The Queen of the World, a novel of the desert and the urge to disappear. www.magicgroove.net.
