County arts council launches Art of Gold Fever
Thursday, July 2, 2015 — The Lassen County Arts Council’s is celebrating its third year of the Community Art Event at the Lassen County Fair. While it has retired The Art of Wild Horses, it’s introducing the newest display — the gold miner.
Lassen County Arts Council expressed appreciation to the warden at California Correctional Center, for donating inmate time to cut out the gold miners.
“This is the third year Lassen County Arts Council has received their support, and it is instrumental in the success of this project,” said Roxanna Haynes, board treasurer. “We don’t have the resources to cut out 26 gold miners, so we are appreciative of their efforts.”
