Studio Artists

Studio Artist Lowell Nickel along with Tim Maxiener will be headed up to the desert to continue with Lowell’s geocaching project “Faux Stone Collection”.

The “Faux Stone” art objects have been sited into the Southern California desert landscape. Lowell uniquely designs each object to gently fit into the terra firma to be located with the use of a Global Positioning System (GPS).  The coordinates are available. 

The project was created in the spring of 1999 and continues each year.
