  • Homage to the lives of the people who have and currently populate the area, as well as those who have lost their lives at sea as an opportunity for reflection and contemplation by their friends and families
  • Celebration of the ecology and conservation of the Bodega Bay waterway

A Sonoma County artist will have the opportunity to install art on a site that holds a lot of history, and something for the future. Projects will be funded up to $10,000. This should be inclusive of artist fees as well as all expenses related to design development including engineering, fabrication, transportation, installation of the artwork, insurance, and other project related expenses.

Pond Farm is a special place. It originally started as an artists’ community in the late 1940s, then transitioned to Pond Farm Pottery where studio pottery artist Marguerite Wildenhain lived, worked, and taught annual summer workshops. Marguerite Wildenhain dedicated her life to her craft. After finishing her studies at the Bauhaus she became the first female master potter in Germany. She was a remarkable woman who touched many lives through her work and her teachings. Marguerite strongly believed that the journey to become a true artist was not about learning a technique, but much more about the development of the whole person, an “opening of the soul.”
