Our 2015 Mariposa County Fair Booth


We were very happy to join the hundreds of local fair entries at the Mariposa County Fair this year. Anna Friedland designed the Arts Council’s booth, and it was well-received by the community and fair judges (it was given the honor of second place for feature exhibits). Following this year’s theme, “Treasure Basket Full of Memories,” Anna included a wall of the Arts Council’s memories in photographs and past fliers, and made a chalk portrait of local basket maker Julia Parker along with a dedication to Julia’s work in the arts and preservation. Chris Thorpe assisted Anna in setting up the space and was stationed at the booth for a period of time over the weekend. Chris greatly enjoyed meeting a variety of fair visitors (almost 200 people) and sharing information about our wide-range of programs. Thank you for a wonderful weekend Mariposa!
