Idyllwild, California United States

Since its founding in 1946, Idyllwild Arts has always been firmly rooted in respect for and reverence of Native American arts and culture. Each summer, Idyllwild Arts’ Native American Arts Center produces and hosts the annual Native American Arts Festival Week, designed to enhance and add depth to the Summer Program workshop experience. The week-long festival provides a provocative learning experience by bringing together distinguished artists, scholars, and cultural specialists to present performances, demonstrations, films, exhibitions, showcases, and the popular Michael Kabotie Lecture Series.

Join us for a special evening with Unfold Development and the Native American Arts Center celebrating an outdoor photography exhibition by current Idyllwild Arts student Tain Half. Guests will also enjoy a poetry reading by Idyllwild Arts alumna Emily Clarke, who will share a never-before publicly read poem that encapsulates the spirit of the project that Unfold Development is undertaking in the heart of downtown Idyllwild. This program is a part of Unfold Development’s RECONNECT series, which interweaves community partnerships with art, education, and nature. Guests are also encouraged to enjoy appetizers and flute music!
