March Mondays

Artists pondering what they’ve done on Tumamoc.


ARTISTS MET EVERY MONDAY morning in March to do their work on Tumamoc. Each has their own reasons for coming, but it’s all about being there on site and developing one’s own sense of the place. Even returning to the same spot at a different time of day creates a new view and a unique work.

After a each person chooses their location and spends 2-3 hours at work, we meet for lunch and to share what we did. It’s a classic and valuable way to improve one’s own observations by learning from others, and for building a sense of friendship and community. And qualifications to come up to the Hill if you are new.

Below, you can scroll through some of the images we discussed on the Desert Lab patio.
