Re-Imagining the Arroyo

Oct 30, 2013

re-imagining the arroyo_newtown artsLinda Dove and Elizabeth Garrison and 15 other artists are re-imagining the Arroyo this weekend…so come on down!

Art and poetry installations, a collaboration entitled “Flag the Bear” will be constructed in the lower Arroyo, November 2nd-3rd.

Join an adventuresome array of Southern California’s artists on a half mile stroll, enlivened with their interpretations of the Arroyo Seco’s history, inhabitants, ecosystems, and its often contentious human human interactions.

Supercharge a beautiful Fall day with a prismatic portrait of the Lower Arroyo: its myths, realities, past, and present in 16 installations stimulating the imagination.

Sunday will have a closing performance by composer Gregory Lenczycki and feature Ted Byrnes, percussion; James Klopfleisch, double bass; William Roper, tuba; Christine Tavolacci, flute, and Brian Walsh, clarinet.

Flag the Bear is presented by Newtown Arts—”a constorium of accomplished professional artists and artist/administrators…leading the way to an art world outside institutional confines, reinstating art in the pantheon of public discourse, private pleasure, and plain old fun.”

Richard Amromin, who’s organizing the event, will be handing out self-guided maps near the casting pond parking lot. There’s no set program, so people are welcome to drop-in at any time.
