All Day Arts-In-Corrections Art Show at Columbia College Through March 28, 2019
Jamestown, CA...Artworks by California inmates at Sierra Conservation Center (SCC) will be on display at Columbia College in Sonora through March 28, 2019. The show, “Artistic Realms,” features 100 acrylic paintings on display and for sale in the college’s Manzanita Building. The artworks were created by students in the William James Association’s Prison Arts Project class taught at SCC. The course is made possible by a contract through California Arts in Corrections, a partnership between the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and the California Arts Council. Arts in Corrections programs are evidence-based courses that reduce recidivism through structured instruction of visual, performing and literary arts.


The free exhibit is available for public viewing from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Columbia College is located at 11600 Columbia College Drive.

Bids on artworks will be taken via silent auction through 4 p.m. on March 27. Proceeds from the sales of the artwork will go to two non-profit organizations — Columbia College Foundation Art Scholarship and Columbia College Student Food Bank.

Paintings include landscapes, birds, animals, underwater fish, planets and abstract works. Many of the wooden picture frames that adorn the paintings were made by the vocational carpentry program at SCC, supervised by instructor Randy Bland.

Stacy Hay, a retired correctional officer and local artist, leads the arts course. Hay said the classes are a valuable rehabilitative program.

“The process of creativity opens the mind and the human spirit. It teaches self-discipline and problem solving,” Hay said. “These arts programs are proven to decrease institutional tensions, and lower recidivism rates. Most of these students are getting out of prison and could be your neighbors. This art exhibition gives them a way to give back to our local community.”
11:00 AM - 03:00 PM Columbia State Historic Park Celebrates 169 Years on March 27th
Columbia, CA...169 years ago gold was discovered in Columbia. This discovery changed the land forever when thousands of people came to the Gem of Southern Mines to “strike it rich.” Come experience and commemorate this monumental event. Celebrate with us as we remember Columbia and how it grew into one of the richest Gold Rush era towns in California’s history. Please join us and celebrate Columbia’s birthday. This free event will be held on Wednesday, March 27th from 11:00am to 3:00pm in front of the museum and along Main Street.


Costumed docents will be present serving birthday cake and punch as the town comes alive with music, speeches, and re-enactments of the events that occurred on that historic day in 1850.

Columbia State Historic Park, located in Tuolumne County, is designated as a National Historic Landmark District. It has been preserved to tell the story of the towns which arose to serve the needs of the miners during the California Gold Rush. California State Parks has restored, and continues to preserve, over thirty of the original brick buildings along the town’s Main Street.

Friends of Columbia members, docents and volunteers raise funds to support the educational and Interpretive Programs at Columbia State Historic Park

Columbia State Historic Park annually hosts over 600,000 visitors, and is a major tourist destination in Tuolumne County. Its many historic-style stores and restaurants are run by over twenty-five concessionaires whose businesses, along with park staff and volunteers, help recreate the experience of the California Gold Rush for visitors from around the world.
