JACKSON, CA - The Kennedy Mine Foundation has released an art quality poster commemorating the Foundation’s 20th Anniversary preserving, restoring and sharing the story of the Kennedy Gold Mine.
Ione artist George Lambert created the stunning image of Kennedy Tailing Wheel No. 1, featured on the poster. The original work in acrylic paint and paper collage beautifully reflects the setting and majesty of the three-story-tall relic that has become an icon of Amador County gold mining.
The 16” x 20” posters are available for $20.00 at the Kennedy Mine gift store on weekends and at the Amador County Chamber of Commerce office, 115 Main Street, Jackson.
Posters will also be for sale at the Kennedy Mine Foundation’s 20th Anniversary benefit dinner on Thursday, June 22, 2017 at the Kennedy Mine. At the dinner, the Foundation will kick off its “Dig Deep” campaign with a funding goal of $35 per foot of mine depth to preserve and restore the historic headframe, buildings and property. Sales of the poster also benefit the Foundation’s work.
