ART OnSite Presents Sculptor Daniel Brickman in Conversation with Julie Baker

ART Onsite  unveiled  their first public art works project last September  that featured works from eight international artists installed along the nine-mile Deer Creek Tribute Trail, in Nevada City.   The idea was for each artist to create pieces that best interpret the culture, history and ecology of the Deer Creek watershed.   Sculptor Daniel Brickman’s much discussed piece, “Nevada City Alchemy” sought inspiration from the area’s rich mining history and our four legged friends by drawing a correlation between the two and the notion of dealing responsibly with the environment.  Brickman says  a lot of people were walking their dogs the day he visited the trail, which gave him the inspiration.
