The Art Experience is Coming to the Johnny Cash Trail

The Johnny Cash Trail completed construction in 2018, and the community has waited patiently for the next phase of this one-of-a-kind project to come to life. The Art Experience, seven world-class interactive public art sculptures, is now being brought to the trail.

Folsom recently announced that local artist Adan Romo is moving forward with the fabrication and installation of Cash's Pick, the first artwork to be installed along the Johnny Cash Trail.

The Art Experience depends on support from the community and Cash fans worldwide. Be a part of Cash's incredible legacy in Folsom and help bring the art to the trail.
