During the summer of 2011, a group of multimedia artists spent 25 days hiking the 219 mile long John Muir Trail. The intent was to capture their experience on the trail and bring it back to the general public in the form of a gallery exhibit including photographs, video installations and hands-on displays that allow visitors to truly get a feeling for the beauty and majesty of the trail without the burning lungs and blisters.
Alongside the exhibit will be a feature length documentary chronicling their adventures on the trail. This video offers a behind the scenes look at filming the documentary The Muir Project.
