Heidi Wiren Bartlett: UPRIVER

FRIDAY, JULY 8 | 7:00PM

PERFORMANCE EVENT

HEIDI WIREN BARTLETT & COLLABORATORS

KARL STIRNER ARTS TRAIL | PERFORMANCE STARTS AT THE PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE @ SILK

Upriver is a project including a series of sculptures and a performance event on Bushkill Creek. Debuting on July 8, the work is an active collaboration with local artists, scholars, geologists, musicians, and engineers. In a procession down the Karl Stirner Arts Trail, stories will be told, action will transform, and each element is constructed to reflect the potent history of the Lehigh Valley and mythologies of “The Place at the Forks.” There will be sacred rocks, iron, steel, hex signs, and witches. It should be known, in the end, what is left was already upriver.

SOUND BATH EXPERIENCE

JOHN MURACO of HEARTWELL HOUSE

GROSSMAN GALLERY | WILLIAMS VISUAL ARTS BUILDING

243 North Third Street

During this sound meditation, your only task is to be comfortable. Blankets, pillows, and comfortable mats are provided, but feel free to bring your own. A gently guided relaxation experience will be followed by the sounds of crystal singing bowls, gongs and the sounds of other instruments. The nature of these sounds can support movement through emotions and deepen awareness. Reservations requested. Please email info@karlstirnerartstrail.org, subject: Sound Bath Reservations.

 

UPRIVER has been made possible by a generous grant through the Lehigh Valley Engaged Humanities Consortium
