Capradero 2011

  The 2011 version of Capradero--the whimsical outdoor art display in an empty lot downtown Pescadero-- opened on Saturday May 7th, 2011, with food, drinks, family fun, and live music. It stayed open to the public on May 8, 14, and 15, from 10AM to 6 PM. Premiering in May 2010, “Capradero: a Lot of Goats” received much public and media acclaim (see notes below).

  In 2010, goats were the main theme of our event.  In Italian “capra” means “goat,” therefore “Capradero” is the place of goats. In 2011 the concept was broadened: participating artists represented their individual interpretation of the influences that in some fashion and over time transformed Capradero into “Pescadero”--from a place where goats were the principal actors into a place where fish are (“pesca” in Italian means “fishing”, and “Pescadero” in Spanish means “fish monger”). From here, the new subtitle "Capradero: a Lot of Fish-Goats".
Artists showed their own artistic accounts of how Capradero could have become Pescadero.
Performing artists performed on Saturday 7 and Sunday 15.
