Collaborations

One of our goals when we opened The Wilds was to create a space where collaborations could easily happen.  We wanted to inspire collaborations within our membership, but also with us and the community.  So many awesome projects have taken place, that we wanted to highlight some of the awesomeness happening around us! 

 
Summer Robbins has probably done the most collaborations within our space.  She blogs about her work and her styled shoots; click on the image to read about these awesome projects.  This particular one involved FOUR of The Wilds' members - Charlie Thiel (photographer), Karen Ruane (marbled paper), Gabe Ruane (graphic designer), and of course, Summer Robbins Sutter herself (floral arrangements).

Here's a really amazing collaboration that happened at The Wilds! Tyrone Hazen had the idea to build this audio box a couple of years ago.  As he got closer and closer to making his dreams come true, Gabe Ruane joined the team to do the graphics for the project.  When it was time to launch kickstarter and do some PR for the project, a third Wilds member, Andrea Oliveira jumped in with her skills!  This photo is just a snapshot of Tyrone's booth, during his first (and MAJOR) trade show of 2017 - which went smashingly well!

immersion brewing Mural

A couple of months before Immersion Brewing opened, The Wilds were contacted to do this graphic mural depicting a modified version of the brewing process.  We were so excited to collaborate with Immersion! We learned a ton about the beer brewing process too!  The painters were Karen Ruane, Kelly Thiel, Wallis Levin, and Connie Gabbert.  Special thanks for the husbands for their help (even though we know you just wanted to drive the scissor lifts)!


The Base Camp Studio Painting Marathon. The finished piece resides in our Meeting Room, until a buyer falls in love it with :)

Base Camp Studio, 2016 Painting Marathon

In October of 2016, Team Wilds was invited to create a 5'x7' painting on canvas with the theme of Carnival of Creativity.  5 members were selected and at the event, we created the entire piece in 6 hours! This year's team members were Kelly Thiel, Karen Ruane, Sam Olson, Megan Myers, and Sarah Helen More.  What a fun event it was!  And special thanks to Bill More, for the team gloves and hand warmers!

The World Muse and the MUse Conference

Wallis Levin painted these wings for a photo op for the conference.  We love being a part of Muse and all that they do!  These wings were painted on fabric in the colors of the Muse logo.  We think they turned out fabulously.


The World Muse

In 2017, Wallis Levin and Kelly Thiel worked with the World Muse and other local artists like Sheila Dunn, Leah Rutz, Julia of Feather Divine and others, to create artwork, photo ops and an interactive sculpture for the participants of the conference.  We collaborated with Ghost Village Films to create a superb film of some of the behind the scenes action and all that is The Muse Conference.

Other wonderful projects and networking has happened within The Wilds as well.  We are currently gathering a list of some of the teamwork happening here; stay tuned for more examples of how just awesome and amazing coworking with like-minded people can be!
