F/STOP

2019 Exhibition:

Now on view at the Treetop Gallery until October 20, 2019, this exhibition features final projects from 2018/2019 F/STOP participants. This season’s F/STOP curriculum was inspired by the work of Ansel Adams and his use of photography to advocate for the causes he felt were important. In the spirit of Adams, participants utilized artistic techniques to effectively advocate for their vision of green spaces throughout Mariposa County through their photographic and poetic work.  

Many participants focused their work on the Mariposa Creek Parkway, a pedestrian pathway that will run the length of the town of Mariposa along the Mariposa Creek. While the initial stages of Parkway have been completed, the County of Mariposa is currently developing a Master Plan for the entire project. Images from this exhibition will be submitted to the County as part of the public input component of this project.
