Visiting Artist Jim Hart

Room F101

Lake Tahoe Community College
Fine Arts Building
South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150

LTCC's Art Club welcomes GPS Swim Artist Jim Hart for an artist talk and free presentation on Friday Nov. 16 at 5:30pm in Room F101, located in the Fine Arts building on LTCC's campus. Space will be limited, so arrive early to secure your spot!

Hart has figured out a unique way of bringing together his interest in technology, the outdoors in Tahoe, and the arts. He creates his works of art by swimming along a particular path in Lake Tahoe while towing a GPS (a Garmin GPSMAP 76CSx to be precise) in a dry bag. He samples his position coordinates every 2 seconds, then uploads the track in Google Earth, rotating and tilting as needed to create the figures he plans out beforehand. The result is whimsical creations of various creatures brought to colorful life over actual Google Earth images.

This free artist talk is hosted and sponsored by LTCC's Art Club.
