On Saturday, Sept. 7, ART OnSite (AOS) will unveil its first public art works project which aims to bring people and the natural environment together in an innovative and artistic way. The project features works from eight international artists installed along the 9 mile Deer Creek Tribute Trail in Nevada City.

Each artist was selected based on proposals that best interpret the culture, history and ecology of the Deer Creek watershed. The works range from hidden cameras capturing the flora and fauna on the trail to sculptures made with natural found materials to an interactive naturalist’s treasure hunt.

From 10 to 10:30 a.m. on Sept.7, there is an opening celebration and premiere of artworks at Robinson Plaza, at  the musician’s stage at the Nevada City Farmers Market on Union Street. Speakers will include Nancy Fleming, chair of ART OnSite; Sally Harris, mayor of Nevada City; Dave Brennan, city manager; Jon Blinder, president of the board of Nevada County Arts; and Izzy Martin, CEO, The Sierra Fund.

Attending the ceremony are the eight ART OnSite artists, the ART OnSite Steering Committee, representatives of the projects 15 Stakeholders, the media, the community and other artists who have been involved with the project.

Following the ceremony, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, individuals and families will be invited to walk the Tribute Trail and preview the multiple installations. The  artists will be available along the trail to talk about their works. A brochure with map and location of the works will be provided.

Also, from 10 a.m to 12 p.m., there will be a children’s nature-based art activity during the Nevada City Farmers Market. This activity will take place under the trees in Callahan Park. Instructors will provide natural elements such as leaves, twigs, acorns and rocks and each child will create a sculpture that they may take home.

This event is free. Everyone is invited to come out to meet the artists and enjoy the art and the trail.
