Free art storage on magical 60 acres near Yosemite

Postby jigjag » Sun Sep 13, 2015 1:29 pm

First off, thank you all for the most fucking incredible mind-bending week of my life. My brain and heart are still melting out of my ear holes.

I have 60 beautiful acres of land near Yosemite that I'd like to populate with random art installations. I rent out tipis and yurts on the land via airbnb and Burning Man has inspired me to revamp the whole experience into something more akin to Black Rock City. So I'm reaching out to see if anyone is interested in FREE storage space for their art installations. Any tips on how to pimp this land out are much appreciated.

Love,
Camp Jig Jag

Be very careful about this, you could end up being a dumping ground for playa junk!

So, wait, you're asking artists to provide art that will enhance your business property? It is a measure of the contempt in which artists are held in this culture that they are so often asked to give their work away.

Haha no no good sir, I hold artists in the highest esteem—the idea is to help them out and save them from their current storage fees. And if it turns out no one is interested I'm going to try and commission new pieces.

Are you offering indoor space? That's the biggest issue here. Most art is not designed for 24/7 exposure to the elements. They will rust and decay. Most artists aren't looking for free land to dump nice art.

No indoor space :(

I figured since there's so much outdoor art at Burning Man the land would be a good fit but it's starting to feel like a long shot now hah.
