Written by Akaya McElveenKeri Art-Kristin Palka.jpgWillimantic, Conn. - Eastern Connecticut State University's graphic design program will be collaborating with Thread City Development, Inc., the Willimantic Screen Project, the Willimantic Brewing Company and the Kerri Art Studio & Gallery to illuminate the Kerri Gallery on Main Street as part of the Green Valley's fourth annual Green Lights initiative.

The Kerri Gallery will host an opening reception for Green Lights from 6-8 p.m. on Feb. 27. The reception is free and open to the public. The gallery will glow each night from February 27 to March 5 with a series of publicly visible, inventively imagined, green light images created by Eastern design students with the assistance of Eastern Professor of Art June Bisantz.
