Connecting Creative Explorers
CCAI Nevada Neighbors Talk by Sarah Beth Nesbit
On Wednesday, October 21, 2015, the Capital City Arts Initiative [CCAI] will present a talk by Sarah Beth Nesbit, Marketing Director at ZERO1 in San Jose, California. Her illustrated talk, “Connecting Creative Explorers” is the next in CCAI’s Nevada Neighbors series. The talk will take place at 7pm at the BRIC, 108 E Proctor St, Carson City. There will be an informal reception for Ms. Nesbit preceding the event at 6:15pm. The presentation and reception are free, and the public is cordially invited.
As a Silicon Valley arts organization, ZERO1 connects creative explorers in art, science, and technology to provoke new ideas that shape a more resilient future. Through several case studies from the ZERO1 Biennials and exhibitions, Sarah Beth Nesbit will share how ZERO1 empowers and equips artists whose projects broaden our perspective and create paths to rich impactful discoveries across civic, corporate, cultural and academic sectors.
Throughout the years ZERO1 has not only developed an amazing network of artists, partners, and supporters, but continually works with artists who are pushing the boundaries of experimentation, creativity, and innovation.
Sarah Beth Nesbit heads ZERO1’s marketing department where she develops and executes communication strategies, cultivates new relationships, and provides all around marketing support. She brings a broad artistic perspective to the table with her background in fine arts, industrial arts, and her Masters in Public Art from the University of Southern California. Sarah Beth has assisted with numerous art organizations and events including the 2012 and 2010 ZERO1 Biennial, 2008 California Biennial, 2008 Women in the City, and Absolutely Public, Crossover: Art and Architecture in Brisbane Australia.
As part of her CCAI visit, Ms. Nesbit will give her talk to art students and faculty at Douglas High School and at Sierra Nevada College.
