Come Help Make #NoACP Art on the Front Lines of the Struggle!
March 31 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm
Join Wild Virginia and eco-Artist Amelia L. Williams to see the front lines of the #NoACP struggle. Learn about and contribute to an art installation built as a protest tactic to publicize the landscapes threatened by the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline. Amelia creates art that is built into the landscape and copyrights it to protect the land that it is built on. Witness her important work in person! To learn more about Amelia’s work, visit her website at http://www.wildink.net/.
Help complete the landowner’s “orange flag” Signal-to-Noise piece (reminiscent of Christo works) that is currently in progress. It is one of a triad of soundscape pieces. Following the participatory art project, Amelia will offer a walking tour of the other two pieces of soundscape art that comprise the “Soundings” installation. This is a great activity for families with children.
There will be two starting points for participants (one drive-to and the other a hike downhill and across a stream), which will accommodate walkers of varying abilities. The follow-up tour will start with an easy walking path and move on to a downhill trek through a meadow to see the Glass Harmonium.
The meeting time will be 11:30 AM at the Route 29/Route 6 junction parking near Nelson Wayside. The Address provided in the event is roughly 300 feet away from the parking lot.
Event is free, but please register here.
