CONNECT THE DOTS

Monday, February 25, 2019 | 7:00 - 9:00 PM

Create “The Path of Us”: a Public Art Fence Weaving
Join Northern NJ Community Foundation’s ArtsBergen to design, create and install a contemporary public art fence weaving project near the Midtown Bridge in Bogota, NJ. In two workshops, artist Katherine Daniels will lead participants in designing chain link fence weavings. Our friends at the Bergen Makerspace will teach how to conceptualize and produce 3D printed objects that will embellish the design. On May 4, all are invited to install the large-scale weaving located at the ball fields along West Main Street. Everyone is welcome to any or all events to collaborate and contribute their creativity to beautify this heavily trafficked pathway over the Hackensack River!
