Wild & Scenic Art Exhibition 2019

Wild & Scenic showcases environmental and adventure film to inspire activism, and in collaboration with Nevada County Arts Council, our art exhibition does the same. Artists submit pieces that address a broad interpretation of the theme of “environment.” Featured artwork enhances the immersive nature of the festival experience.
