That means that fans of Marsh and his multimedia creations will have a chance to join in the fun on Sept. 14 when Marsh holds a workshop in Hermit Valley on Highway 4 east of Bear Valley.
The honor was announced Thursday by Stanislaus National Forest Supervisor Susan Skalski. As a result, Marsh will stay in a cabin in the Calaveras Ranger District for two weeks through mid-September.
During that time, he is asked to create an original piece of work representative of his stay and to conduct a public workshop. Marsh is a musician, sketch artist, photographer and multimedia designer. He is also a member of an acoustic trio, Mom’s Chili Boys.
Marsh is known for his public art creations. In 2011, he and a team of students crafted larger-than-life fish sculptures that were part of the Stockton Steelhead Festival.
