Mammoth Art Guild is now Mono Council for the Arts! The Council works in partnership with many organizations in Mono and Inyo Counties to provide greater access to the arts in this isolated rural Eastern Sierra Corridor. To do this, the arts council will launch the "Trail of the Trout" in the Summer of 2008 where six foot fiberglass sculptures of Trout decorated by local artists and sponsored by local businesses and organizations, will be placed along 150 miles of Highway 395 from Lone Pine to Bridgeport. This endeavor will have its debut at the Labor Day Festival of the Arts, held in conjunction with Million Dollar Troutstock, and will serve to bring together all the organizations along the Eastern Sierra Corridor and unite them though art. In the fall of 2008, the Trout sculptures will be auctioned and revenues generated will go towards funding the new arts council and arts in education in Inyo and Mono Counties.
