Last night was the opening for the Year in the Life of Six Mile Creek Project. There was music, slide shows, art and the display of the banners I designed for the event. The banners are tightly attached to the light poles along Six Mile Creek behind the Library in Ithaca, NY. This is an extended project that will include hikes up the watershed, poetry, music, and connections with schools and communities.
I would be interested in designing similar banners for other communities, so please let me know if you have any suggestions. The banners here are artistic interpretations of plants that live near the watershed and include the Jack In the Pulpit, Trillium, Marsh Marigold, Hellebore, and Bloodroot.
Also pictured here are creek views behind the Library and other buildings on Green Street in Ithaca, people who gathered for the event, and a map of the watersheds in this area.
