In 2017, Playhouse Arts commissioned local artist Lush Newton to create a special outdoor art exhibit, inspired by the 100th anniversary of the Creamery Building. The exhibit, titled “California State Creamery; The Land of Milk and Honey,” showcases Newton’s unique whimsical style in several oversized art pieces placed around the building, including representations of a historical train station and train engine, a family of Portuguese farmers and a special ode to Creamery Building architect Franklin Georgeson. This exhibit will be up throughout the festival.
Tim Gray’s Foot Fall, an audio installation, was created to accompany a stroll around the Creamery District. Gray states, “The world is quite a noise filled place.
