SNEAK PREVIEW OF THE ARK!

We have been working at the Red Hook Library for the past few months, conducting art workshops that focused on climate change and resiliency. We have also started to make contacts with the local Red Hook community, and building excitement about the upcoming Ark for the Arts. Please check the Schedule of Events page for any upcoming activities in Red Hook.

Well, the day is almost here... and we can just taste the excitement! David Spangler, who is making this project a reality just sent us a few photos of the Ark... and we just had to share!

We are going to be pulling this with a bicycle all summer around Red Hook, and have art workshops, book exchange, lectures, litter removal events, voter registration drives, and emergency preparedness training sessions. If you want to use the Ark for your own community event, please contact us!

... and check back to see when the community can decorate the Ark! We are set to launch next week!
