Meet the Artists – Reviving Place: Onondaga Lake Watershed Community Mapping
September 30, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Onondaga Environmental Institute, the Onondaga Historical Association and the Ska-nonh – Great Law of Peace Center are pleased to announce a special event with the artists behind the Reviving Place Exhibition on Friday, September 30th at the Ska-nonh Center. Artists Sandra Fioramonti-Sabene, Roland Powless, Kamiiron Pritchard and Kate Woodle will be on hand for informal conversation from 6:00pm-8:00pm. Gain their thoughts and perspectives on creating paintings that encompass community values and visions of the Onondaga Lake Watershed. This event is free and open to the public.
The Reviving Place: Onondaga Lake Watershed Community Mapping exhibit showcases four original works of art that were developed as part of a multi-year-long project which asked communities, geographically located within the large Onondaga Lake watershed, what they found unique, special or important about their particular neighborhoods, locales and environments. The findings were then translated to an original visual graphic by talented local artists who sought to capture the community input and reflect what those communities viewed as important and which elements helped provide an identity that would be missed if it were gone?” Their responses were then visually rendered by local artists in the community maps on exhibit.
