Community Celebration for "...Lighting Your Way..." at Union Station

  • Union Station

Join us in Celebration!

On June 10th from 1-4 p.m., in conjunction with the International Festival, we plan to have a celebration of the ideas and the aspirations of the artwork for the people in the surrounding neighborhoods and for people coming through the Train Station.

From 4-6 p.m., we will have a reception intended as a smaller event with food and short speeches and toasts just for neighborhood residents and City officials.

At 6 pm, we plan to organize everyone and parade out the train station and through the Underpass.

The party itself will be mainly a screening of film shorts made about the artist and artwork and about the long history of the site.  Following that film will be films of interviews that we are having done with some of the people who lived here in the 1930s, 1940's and 1950's.
