Beach=Culture's summer «Out of the Blue» series continues with public sculpture-building by sculptor Kiel Johnson. Embark on a glorious sea voyage without ever leaving the sand while Kiel creates an all-cardboard rendition of W.R. Hearst’s notorious yacht, the Oneida. A 1920s steam-powered ship emerges from the fog of history, clad in the most humble of materials. At various times between August 11 and August 18, the public is invited to help construct the sculpture, which will be on display as an inspiration to all – especially the builder-participants of the Beach House annual Cardboard Yacht Regatta (August 26.) More about Kiel Johnson at kieljohnson.com.
Scheduled public drop-in participation: Definitely 10am-12pm Monday-Friday 8/14-18; all other times just stop by and ask Kiel what's going on!
«Out of the Blue» is a series of creative projects which showcase artmaking in action. Each month this summer, artists will be working onsite, and all are welcome to stop by to view their process and periodically take part. Events this summer include members of the conductorless chamber music ensemble Kaleidoscope in an open string quartet rehearsal June 20-22 and a monster vacation with artists Beck + Col July 17-21.
