“Artists were the original self promoters” says Chad Sorg from the cool desert shade cast by towering buses he helped plant at the International Car Forest of the Last Church in Goldfield, Nevada. With Sorg’s help the roadside destination already has a sizable root system of international media publicity which is growing daily. Huffington Post calls the International Car Forest of the Last Church one of 11 therapeutic art destinations to see and Stella McCartney recently filmed a fashion video there and there’s a documentary being filmed.
Sorg portrait paints in the Midwest when he’s not living periodically as the Fishbowler in display windows across the country. He was a founder of NadaDada Motel which has proudly called to attention the work of 300 artists and performers and the New York Times published the story in 2009. He’s currently writing a book about his adventures and lessons learned. When he’s not TED talking he’s window cleaning. @Art of Sorg on Facebook & Fishbowler.
