#TravelWithArtists Camping in Baja California, Mexico with Tanya Aguiñiga: Friday, May 22, 2020

As part of our #GiveToArtists campaign, we are pleased to kick off our #TravelwithArtists series of virtual trips. We hope you’ll join us live or view it afterwards. We love to travel as we’re sure you do too. Since most of us are staying in place, we’ve invited artists to lead us on virtual travel adventures and satisfy our wanderlust. Registration is free, let’s go!

Camping in Baja California, Mexico with Tanya Aguiñiga
Friday, May 22, 5:00pm
Zoom (register here)

Kick off this Memorial Day weekend with a cold beer and some fish tacos (in your own home) as we explore Baja California through the eyes of Los Angeles based artist/designer/craftsperson Tanya Aguiñiga. Tanya is the recipient of the 2020 Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prize.

Tanya Aguiñiga and her family have been camping in Baja California, Mexico, for the last 41 consecutive years, and it is Tanya’s absolute pleasure, passion, and honor to show people the beauty and history of Baja Norte and Sur. She will take us on a journey from Los Angeles all the way to Bahía Concepción (Baja Sur), stopping at her favorite places on both the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez. This virtual trip will include cave paintings and Alexander Gustave Eiffel’s stainless steel church in the desert called Iglesia de Santa Bárbara, as well as yurts in the middle of a Baja oasis. Also included is her emergency packing list must haves and preferred routes for scenic, cultural, or quick escapes. We’ll also virtually visit the Valle de Guadalupe wine region, for a peek at amazing up-cycled architecture.

Dear Friends,

I would like to make this appeal to you for your support during this great time of uncertainty. Our organization, like many others, was planning for a major fundraiser at the end of May.

Today, instead of gala tickets and tables and sponsorships, we’re inviting you, if you can, to make a donation in any amount to support the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prize Gala Month. Join us in giving to artists! All of our fundraising efforts this month will go to our Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prizes.

Follow along as we share our #GiveToArtists campaign during our Art Prize Month of May.
