Art Inspires Ashland

AIS Facebook page

Art is not just for artists, and it has other uses besides hanging on walls. 

These are some of the thoughts behind this weekend's Art Inspires Ashland (November 11-13).  As the name implies, the idea is to use art as a catalyst in community building. 

This is work Milenko Matanovic does all the time, merging art, collaboration, and community building.

The Art Inspires Ashland mini-festival brings artists from other parts of the world to the Rogue Valley, to explain their work processes and the results.

One of the visiting artists is South African born- and Austrian-based documentary filmmaker Reina-Marie Loader, who focuses her lenses on some of the most controversial topics in the world.
