Walking on air flag workshops

Walking on Air is a community artists project and collaboration to celebrate the grand opening of The Walkway over the Hudson, a Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial signature event on October 3rd, 2009. The old railroad bridge is transformed into the highest pedestrian walkway in the country. As part of the NY State Parks system, it will connect more than 27 miles of rail trails and river front parks. Fifty towns in Ulster and Dutchess county will be represented, with an emblem and their own 25 processional flags, during the opening ceremony.
If you are from Millerton, Amenia, or Northeast and have ideas that might improve the outcome of the project, please feel free to contact me I’d love to hear from you! The more community involvement, the better the outcome.

The first workshop will be held for anyone at the Indian Rock School pavilion on
Sunday July 12, 1-3:30 pm. That is on Mygatt road, Amenia, The next two workshops will be July 22& 23rd. It will be an all day volunteer drop-in from 10-1pm or from 3-6pm at Tilly’s Studio at the Mansard house on route 22 in Amenia.
The studio is located with the CPA, between the M&T bank and the Presbyterian church.
An August date will be set for workshops hosted at the NECC in Millerton.
RSVP and contact Tilly with your preferred dates.
Deadline for flags is mid September.
Meanwhile I am off on a trip. Not walking on the airplane wings like you may have thought!
