Sierra Art Trails Public Art Fund


Bringing artwork into the public realm pulls together people from all walks of life. Public art beautifies, educates, and enhances our surroundings. It is a statement, indicating that a community cares about its culture. In 2008 Sierra Art Trails established the "Sierra Art Trails Public Art Fund" dedicated to realizing these goals in our Foothill Communities.   


The Sorensen Sculpture Project


In 2012 Sierra Art Trails initiated "The Sorensen Sculpture Project", the installation of a 16' tall kinetic sculpture by Fresno's Man of Steel at Gallery Row in Oakhurst.

We are very pleased to report that our project was successfully funded, with over $7000 in donations from our friends, clients, and community members.  Thank you all for your donations!  The sculpture is complete and on display at Gallery Row.  


Please consider making a donation to the Sierra Art Trails Public Art Fund. Your contribution helps insure that our cultural life remains vibrant. Any amount will do!

 Other Area Public Art 


The "Seasons of Life" mural in Oakhurst CAThe "Seasons of Life Mural, a 195 foot long mural painted on a concrete retaining wall along Road 426, is another example of public art in Oakhurst.  The mural was spearheaded by local arts advocates Maggie Elliot and Jane Gyer with the aid of Yosemite High School students and other area artists. CLICK HERE to learn more about the project.


It is our hope that the Sierra Art Trails Public Art Fund will make similar projects possible in the future.
