Artists take inspiration from many places, including the physical world around them. This is especially true for artists living in remarkable places like we do in Antelope Valley, surrounded by the Mojave Desert, the San Gabriel Mountains and the Tehachapi Mountains. Our Joshua Trees, our dry lake beds and our hordes of ravens all make for some compelling and iconic artistic fodder.
People outside the Antelope Valley know this – probably without realizing it – because the Antelope Valley shows up in so many movies, music videos and commercials (especially car commercials). The visual landscape here is special.
In the spirit of celebrating the desert and celebrating our little corner of the world, we would like to invite artists to send in images inspired (directly or indirectly) by the local landscape.
Please send one or two images to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name. Include a brief bio too if you’d like.
While the turnout will most likely be humble, that is perfectly okay. Little celebrations count too.
