Hinterculture: A call for art & the 100th anniversary of Llano del Rio the utopian socialist colony

FROM HINTERCULTURE – A desert organization encouraging art, action, and involvement in the high desert.
Hinterculture is currently holding an artist (writer, musician, historian, visual etc etc) call for the 100th anniversary of Llano del Rio, the utopian socialist colony off the 138.
Here is some info:
Hinterculture and Craftswoman House are pleased to invite proposals for a project marking the centennial of the Llano Del Rio colony on Saturday, May 3, 2014. We seek proposals from all disciplines and encourage collaborative and interdisciplinary approaches. The Llano site offers unique possibilities for site-specificity within the physical landscape and proposals should consider the opportunities and constraints of working within a desert environment.
Individuals are encouraged to visit the Llano site (located at approximately 165th Street East along Highway 138 otherwise known as Pearblossom Highway) and preview a podcast that features historical information, sound art, and interviews about the Llano community https://soundcloud.com/temporaryresidence/the-next-step-a-journey-to
Please submit a one-page proposal that details your project, participants and any logistical requirements, current CV, and link to a website or examples of previous work to: proposals@hinterculture.comDeadline: January 31, 2014

  1. I’ve been photographing Llano Del Rio at night, and am fascinated with the history of this place. Please keep me informed of any 100th Anniversary events, and if I can participate with photographs, please let me know.
