Exquisite Garden

Last weekend bay area artist Joe Brubaker and 12 visiting artists and designers collaborated together on an installation piece constructed in the Ablin Gallley at the Bakersfield Museum of Art. For 3 days these artists and designers used a collection of found objects, discarded materials, and scrap metal to transform the space into a sculptural island. Surrounding the island are figurative sculptures by Joe Brubaker. This “Exquisite Garden” opens this Thursday, Dec 10th at 6pm along side 4 other amazing exhibits at the Bakersfield Museum of Art.

Via Arte 2009

The finished piece! We took first place this year at the Via Arte Italian Street painting festival. A huge thanks to my wonderful partner Brent Eviston, the beautiful women who posed for the shots, and all the folks that made it out to the marketplace this year to support this event.
