Connect with Niagara’s ancient past, engage with present & imagine future
This summer, visitors are invited to reinterpret the Artpark experience through “The Art of Walking.” A new approach to a traditional walking tour, participants will explore the nature, poetry and story of Artpark in an engaging and surprising way while adhering to social distancing guidelines.
“The Art of Walking” is created by an international collaboration of New York-based theater and visual artist Carin Jean White and Catalan artists Itsaso Iribarren & German de la Riva.
Beginning Saturday, June 27, small groups of up to seven participants will be led by two performance artists, weaving a moving meditation combining walking, stillness, listening and cheerful interaction.
Participants will wear provided headphones to listen to guides, ambient sounds and music of the park. Headphones and other provided materials will be sanitized prior to each tour and headphones will also be equipped with one-use earpiece covers. In addition to sanitation measures, all participants will be required to wear masks and socially distance at check-in and for the duration of the tour.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own mask. Masks will be provided for those who do not bring one. Restrooms will be available for use and to wash hands. Click here to read more on the safety protocols in place for “The Art of Walking” tours.
Tours will be held at 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. Saturdays, and 4 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $25. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged, as capacity is limited and tours will fill up quickly. An option for a picnic basket meal will be offered for purchase upon pre-registration.
“The Art of Walking” is supported by Niagara Falls National Heritage Area, M&T Bank, Cullen Foundation, and New York State Council on the Arts.
