The Antelope Valley Artist Outpost continues with the release of Yestermorrow: Llano—An Artist's Field Guide to Llano, California.
Artist Larissa Nickel’s explores the rich cultural history of Llano through her project Yestermorrow: Llano that includes a digital PDF publication with map, photography, graphic design, renderings, and links to resources on Llano.
The digital field guide launch event is on Saturday, July 7 at 10AM at the Blue Sky's Bistro: 12822 Pearblossom Hwy, Pearblossom CA 93553. Nickel’s also created a print collateral piece New Llano which is a game board based on “goose” (similar game style to “chutes and ladders”) that will be used as an activity at the event.
Yestermorrow is a platform for cultural innovation and public engagement created by Antelope Valley artist, educator, and curator Larissa Nickel. It explores feminist geography through site specific research, historical and futuristic narratives, and the museum as artistic practice to activate a heterotopian mirror space for creative intervention and discourse that encourages participatory experiences of place.
This Project is supported by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and the Antelope Valley Arts Outpost creative placemaking initiative funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and the California Arts Council with support from Metabolic Studio.
