CELEBRATE EARTH DAY re-PLANTING
By Greg Sturge
re-PLANTING is an open community event, through Glenwood Arts, being held on Earth Day, April 22nd, 6:30 pm--featuring a group exhibition of art, photography, film, music, commentary and more. The event location is at Glenwood Community Church, 71 Grove St., Glenwood Landing.
re-PLANTING is inspired by the dismantling of the iconic Glenwood Power plant, an historic and architecturally unique landmark that for nearly a century provided jobs and electrical power to the area. re-PLANTING will document and memorialize the role of the plant in the community and start a dialogue about what happens in its absence.
The modern environmental movement was born with the first EARTH DAY on April 22, 1970. Today, 45 years later, the official EARTH DAY website still challenges communities to: "Discover energy you didn't even know you had. Feel it rumble through the grassroots under your feet and the technology at your fingertips. Channel it into building a clean, healthy, diverse world for generations to come."
In this spirit we hope the evening at Glenwood Arts will germinate new ideas and fertilize existing ones about how to nurture creative and environmentally sound growth in Hempstead Harbor and surrounding communities
If you would like to submit: Drawings, photographs, collages, paintings or sculpture.
