   Kokoweef: Still Serching for the Lost River of Gold
    by Kim Stringfellow, artist, educator and independent curator

    This is the story of the lost river of gold located near the California and Nevada state line just off of the 15 Interstate Highway. The mountains of this area are honeycombed with caves and it is one of these caves that three Indian brothers supposedly found the lost river of gold and one brother was killed while exploring them. They were friends of a local prospector named Earl Dorr and told him the location of one of the entrances. Dorr located the entrance and explored the cave deep within the Kokoweef peak.

    Kim Stringfellow is an artist, educator and independent curator based in Joshua Tree, CA. She is an Associate Professor at San Diego State University's School of Art + Design. She received her MFA in Art and Technology from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2000.
