Ruth will be giving a really short LIVE FACEBOOK talk about I AM HERE.

I AM HERE explores how women find and maintain their sense of belonging in our changing rural landscape. Lead Artist Ruth Chase will elicit perspectives through the use of social media, public art-making salons, a short film, and an interactive public installation called I AM HERE. I AM HERE is, ultimately, a community conversation- a way to connect, explore and empower.

Artist Statement
My work documents the human spirit and the powerful insights that allow people to find a sense of belonging within their community. The public plays a vital role in the outcome of my work, taking a journey with me that can last up to two years. I produce multi-media installations that include paintings, audio, social media, sideshows, video, and social engagement. Self-aware subjects with strong belief systems fascinate me and draw me in.
