Raising the Mushroom Arch
Volunteers carried the top section of the Mushroom Wedding Arch out of the studio/shop. Struggling under the weight of the cement section, they used the old well tower as a scaffold for supporting the section as they raised it into place.
The top section of the arch is securred to the armature of the upright sections.The partially completed sculture is tarped to protect it for the winter. There are plans to complete it in the summer of 2014.
What's Happening at the Center
The Center is located on nine acres of oak and blue pine forest and meadow land. There is a multi-fruit orchard and two herds of rare San Clemente Island goats on the property.
One hour from Santa Rosa and two hours from Sacramento, the Center is a perfect location for a retreat from the hectic pressures of urban life.
The Center offers:
Single day classes
The classes and workshops are project driven. Individuals bring an idea to work on. Instructors help to engineer each individual project.
The PsiKeep logo is made of two parts. In the center is the Greek letter Ψ psi which means "mind". It is found in such words as psychology – the study of the mind. Another example is psychotropic - mind altering or literally mind turning.
The letter Ψ psi is enclosed in a circle with a gate which represents a keep or the central living space of a castle. Literally the symbol means mind castle.
The flame is the creative energy entering and leaving the mind castle
The PsiKeep Center for the Arts is a place where creativity is born and manifests.
