Each year, Green Lights, an initiative of the Last Green Valley (tlvg.org), encourages residents of our region to show support for the National Heritage Corridor by displaying green lights in any way they can imagine between February 15 and March 17, 2014.
This year, Eastern’s Design Program, Thread City Development, Inc., the Willimantic Screen Project, the Willimantic Brewing Company and the Kerri Art Studio & Gallery are partnering to illuminate the Kerri Gallery storefront on 861 Main Street, Willimantic, in celebration of the Last Green Valley’s 4th Annual Green Lights initiative. The Kerri Gallery will host an opening reception for Green Lights on Thursday 2/27, 6-8 pm. This reception is free and open to the public—All are welcome.
The Gallery will glow each night from February 27 to March 5, 2014 with a series of publicly visible, inventively imagined green light images created by Eastern Connecticut State University design students.
Artists: Kara Berglund, Melissa Blaejak, Christing Broccoli, Laura Cardeno, Joshua Cranmer, Braden Herrick, Lauren Hopkins, Cynthia Kapp, Solinda Keth, Collen King, Hannah Lewis, Cassandra Marion, Chris McMenamey, Seth Meyers, Kristin Palka, Joseph Perez, Robert Picone, Mark Raleigh, Alyssa Reilly, Alexa Senia, Chelsea Taylor, Tyler Scott, Julie Vega.
