The Spirit of Paradise

We are holding a fundraiser for the Twisted Upright House on July 1st up at Paradise Ridge. The Spirit of the Man show is up, the meadow is lovely this time of year, and you are all invited!

The Voigt Family Sculpture Foundation has really outdone itself this time.  the Spirit of the Man exhibit will be up all year long, and it is well worth the trip no matter where you are coming from, IMHO. With 34 large scale sculptures and 6 Burning Man artists represented, including a temple by David Best and volunteers, this show is the best thing I’ve seen on the West Coast.  If you love Storm King, you will LOVE the Spirit of the Man.

The Sunday, July 1st event will go from 2pm until 7pm in the meadow below the winery where the Best temple and the LOVE piece are installed.  Miss Eva from Cabaret de Caliente will be our Mistress of Ceremonies for the afternoon, and we have a lot of fun in store.
