Art in Your Arsenal
October 21 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Join Wild Virginia and eco-Artist Amelia L. Williams on Saturday October 21, 2017, 9:30-11:30 a.m., to see the front lines of the #NoACP struggle and learn about/contribute to a 3-piece art installation built as a protest tactic and to publicize the landscapes threatened by the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
Eco-artist Amelia L. Williams will take you on a walking tour of her two pieces of soundscape art and you will get a glimpse of the landowner’s “orange flag” signal-to-noise piece that is in progress. The triad of pieces are in different terrains and the walk will be designed to accommodate walkers of varying abilities. We will begin with the easy walking path and move on to a downhill trek through meadow and then a quick bushwhack to a trail in the woods.
You may contribute — if you wish — to the “instrument table” piece, so bring something that can be inserted into a rattle or that can be clapped or banged to make a sound. Here are some ideas: kernels of Ponca corn, metal objects that are locally made, or represent water protection, wooden implements to use for striking together, glass bottles or jars with labels removed to fill with water (preferably bring a cork – artist will also have some corks available), old metal pieces from wind chimes, etc. – be creative.
