About the event
How it works – each person chooses a mile, to revisit and paint each year, joining a system of self-sustaining coastal watchers. To be renewed annually, this process work gives the artist the opportunity to intellectually and emotionally connect with the land and to take the role of both sentinel and chronicler of a specific ocean location.
To create each year a two foot by one-mile, free-standing painting, a panorama that includes images from each mile of the California, Oregon and Washington coastline.
To create a system of ocean observers, so any untoward action on the ocean or its accompanying landscape will not go unnoticed.
To create a financially self-sustaining foundation for artists.
To generate money to create formats that foster critical discussion, as well as provide grants for appropriate groups and individuals.
