Join SoCal ArtTable for a dazzling art experience at the studio of Los Angeles artist Nancy Baker Cahill. Enhancing her mesmerizing analog drawing technique with the latest Virtual Reality (VR) technology, Nancy creates immersive digital environments, inviting her viewers to enter the mind-expanding world of her powerfully elegant art in space.

During the studio visit, Nancy will introduce us to her elaborate process, demonstrating how she translates the 2D brushstrokes of her traditional practice to the 3D realm. Guiding each guest through a singular aesthetic encounter with her VR creations, the artist will simultaneously project the images onto a screen. She will also share her experiments with Augmented Reality (AR) and show us how to use her exciting new 4th Wall app, which "places art ephemerally and digitally in the public domain," and in doing so explodes the concept of public art.

A multi-disciplinary artist trained at Williams College, Nancy Baker Cahill has had one-woman shows at the Pasadena Museum of California Art and Ochi Projects. Since its inception in 2017, her VR public art project has been shown on the IF (Innovation Foundation) sponsored Sunset Digital Billboards and during a VR/AR event at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE). She will be a featured TEDx speaker in September 2018. Committed to making art accessible to the broadest spectrum of society, Nancy spearheaded the collaborative art initiative "Exit Wounds" with Homeboy Industries, which participated the the Craft and Folk Art Museum's "Folk Art Everywhere" program.  A grant recipient from CAFAM and the Center for Cultural Innovation, she has served on the Hollywood Public Art Advisory Board and is currently an Advisory Board member of Fulcrum Arts and the Vice Chair of the Board of Directors at LACE.
