Art of Mount Shasta Webinar 11/17/20

from Siskiyou Land Trust

Nov 17 – Lost Legacy – 180 years of the art of Mount Shasta with Bill Miesse

Siskiyou Land Trust kicks off its 2020 webinar series on Tuesday, November 17th, with guest presenter Bill Miesse, our local art history expert. He’ll share his passion and knowledge of Mount Shasta’s art history with a wide array of 19th and 20th century mountain art, created by explorers, artists and scientists.

For more than 150 years, Mount Shasta’s grand beauty has called to a myriad of artists, from early California painters Albert Bierstadt and William Keith, to modern masters of photography such as Imogen Cunningham and Ansel Adams.

Bill has spent years chasing down these artworks, discovering early paintings of Mount Shasta in the most extraordinary places.  It’s a great detective story as well as a visual treat via the excellent Zoom interface.
