More than thirty talented artists perform during Trails and Vistas signature art hikes. In addition to tapping Truckee-Tahoe creative talent, world musicians, dancers, storytellers and visual artists come from Davis, Santa Cruz and Utah to perform in The Dreaming Tree. Trails and Vistas’ art experiences in nature are the only guided art hikes of their kind throughout the state. Attendees chose from one of the many morning and afternoon scheduled art hikes and immerse themselves in the two to three hour long, quiet adventure through the natural world.
“My art is about connection – to a place, to the earth, to people's lives. The Dreaming Tree art hikes are sure to inspire, surprise and delight our senses,” shares Nancy Tieken Lopez, Trails and Vistas’ artistic and executive director who began designing art hikes while earning an MFA at San Jose State University.
