New event needs scarf donationsby jmaloni
The Lewiston Peace Garden, located in the Village Courtyard (476 Center St.), has been selected to participate in Binational Doors Open 2012, taking place Friday, June 15, through Sunday, June 17.
"The Ties That Bind" is a new, three-day program that will begin on Friday evening with a "Christoesque" art installation. Hundreds of scarves, in a myriad of shapes and colors, will be tied together and strung throughout the garden. The colorful display, donated by both Canadian and American women, will signify the many ways that women in both countries are bound together in peace and friendship.
The committee needs scarves in order for this project to make an impact. If you would like to participate and donate a scarf or scarves, you will be recognized. The deadline is June 1. Scarves may be dropped off at the Red Brick Municipal Building (145 N. Fourth St.), or dropped in the door slot at the Lewiston Council on the Arts office at 475 Ridge St.
