Public Art Dedication:NEA Art & Rising Tides in the NEON

October 20 @ 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Join us for a Public Art Dedication during Norfolk Visual Arts Month & The NEON Festival 2017! Enjoy The Rhythm Project’s top band – The All Stars – 5-6pm! (The Rhythm Project is a community outreach education program of the Virginia Arts Festival)

Free & open to the public.

The Norfolk Public Art Commission, the National Endowment for the Arts Our Town program, and the “Art and Rising Tides” planning committee selected artist Matthew Geller to create this project.
A 16’ round galvanized steel canopy with skylights will represent a moon rested upon a teeter-totter like A-frame structure with benches that sway below. Swaying motions will allow participants to interact and tip collected rainwater through spouts directed to a nearby rain garden. Public Works and the City’s Department of Recreation, Parks and Open Space (RPOS) have designed the rain garden.

P.S..WE WILL NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP w/ PLANTING!
October 14 (9am-12pm)
