Highway 1’s destination for fine art, refreshments and unique gifts will host the Big Sur photographer for a special talk titled “An Artist’s View of Native American Rock Art and What’s Around in Nature”

Big Sur, Calif. (September 20, 2019) – COAST Big Sur will host artist Daniel Bianchetta, internationally-published photographer and Esalen Institute archivist and historian, as a guest speaker on Saturday, September 28, 2019, at 4 p.m. The public is welcome to join for an educational and inspiring evening with the local resident and artist.

Bianchetta’s talk titled “An Artist’s View of Native American Rock Art and What’s Around in Nature” will stem from 30 years as a professional photographer and historian, his keen interest and research of Native American Rock Art sites throughout the Southwest, Canada, and Hawaii, and, particularly, his in-depth cultural and historical study of the Big Sur coastal tribe, the Esselen. Bianchetta’s knowledge and passion uniquely intertwine art, history, and science.

“We’re thrilled to host Big Sur artist Daniel Bianchetta at COAST,” said COAST Big Sur CEO Peter Mullin. “His work is an inspiration to the community and a wonderful representation of Native American history and culture.”

This free program will be held in COAST Big Sur’s art gallery. Light appetizers will be served and beverages will be available for purchase. Seating is limited. For event details, please call Sabrina Davis, the COAST Big Sur gallery manager at 831-667-2301.
