Exciting Volunteer Opportunities

Green Butt Sculpture

Volunteering can be fun and satisfying. The Cloverdale Sculpture Trail is putting together a creative coordinating team to replace the current coordinator who is retiring. The current coordinator will continue until the team is up to speed and will always be available for questions and assistance.






Try a Halloween Special

It is possible the historic Gould House is haunted. During an overnight visit by paranormal investigators, they encountered hair-raising activities of light orbs that felt like surging bolts of static electricity and something or someone touching them. The entire time in the Shaw House they felt extreme cold. Are you ready for more ghost stories? How many tricks instead of treats might you receive?. COME ON IN!

Derrick a Sculpture by Jam Collective

Derrick

Derrick, a sculpture by Sonoma County Sculpture Jam artists, Beth Hartmann, David Furger, Jeffrey Zankel, John Packard, John Draper and Gordon Carter of Sebastopol, has been silent since being installed on July 22, 2020. “Derrick” has decided to break the silence. This sculpture has a number of messages for passerby on the E. side of Cloverdale Blvd. between E. Second Street and E. Third Street. For the curious, visit “Derrick”, who has posted directions as to how to access his messages.

For those who have not visited “Derrick”, the sculpture references old-time derricks.  It holds up a solar panel which powers its piercing red eyes and, at night, initiated a hidden projector to direct a slow light spiral on the ground. The spiral mimics a drilling action. Is this the hybrid transition from old dependency to renewable solar energy? ” Derrick” acknowledges our continued reliance on boring oil, but he’s looking toward greener energy sources.”


Homage to Joe Hawley
