Visions of the Wild Goes Virtual

Visions of the Wild Festival has gone virtual! The annual film and arts festival would ordinarily be held each September in downtown Vallejo, but this year the festival is hosting a series of free monthly online events through its project 38°N. And while some of the events have already run, there are still several interesting sessions to be enjoyed.

The schedule of upcoming events includes:

  • October 21 at 5:30 p.m. – Yale University historian Valerie Hansen explores the ancient Silk Road
  • November 18 at 6:00 p.m. – A panel discussion centered on the film Carvalho’s Journey, which will be available online to registrants a week before the event.
  • December 16 at 7:00 p.m. – Art & Nature: Dispatch from Tajikistan
  • January 20, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. – Land Art

Earlier events, “Authors David & Janet Carle describe their journey around the world on the 38th Parallel” and “Global Recycled Plastic Art Challenge – Launch Event,” are available to view on the festival’s website:

Organizers say they will create a 38°N exhibition in Vallejo’s Temple Art Lofts gallery (Latitude 38.10237N, Longitude122.2568W), when public health concerns are reduced.

“Because Vallejo sits on the 38th parallel north of the Equator, the festival organizers decided to explore art and the environment from the perspective of our latitude. The 38°N project aims to connect with people around the globe who share our passion for nature, culture, and community.”

Visions of the Wild is organized by the USDA Forest Service in collaboration with the Vallejo Community Arts Foundation and a wide range of local partners and sponsors.

The moment had been five years in the making. Viveka arrived at Rutherford’s Boat Shop in Richmond in 2015 for a full restoration. But the owner ran out of money and the project was stalled.

It had been seven months, and naturally, we were a bit apprehensive. I'm happy to say we were pleasantly surprised!
