Interview about BeaconArts with Jon Slackman and Rick Rogers: An Open to the Sky Event. EVENT CANCELLED TODAY. RESCHEDULED TBA
Jon Slackman and Rick Rogers will engage members of the community individually through a series of questions to find out what they know about the arts in Beacon, BeaconArts, and the many projects that the organization has been involved with through the past 15 years since it was founded. Jon Slackman is a filmaker who will be taping the interviews; Rick Rogers is a local artist who wil be performing the interviews.
Open to the Sky is a reimagining of the ancient Jewish holiday of Sukkot. A sukkah (pronounced sue-kah) is a sand mandala of a building, open to the sky and used for seven days around the time of the fall harvest and then dismantled. It's rickety and tenuous, creating the illusion of permanence and highlighting the impermanence of everything. For more information about the holiday and Open to the Sky, please click here.
All of the programs of Open to the Sky are offered without charge; however, there are (of course) costs associated with the construction and maintenance of this project. If you can help support Open to the Sky with a donation of any size, please click here.
