What is Sunday Streets?

Sunday Streets (also called “Open Streets”) closes streets to automobile traffic for a day so that people may use the space for other physical and social activities. The streets become parks as people replace car traffic. People walk, bike, skate and dance and play. Everyone from businesses and community organizations to musicians and artists use the space creatively, engaging the public and providing spontaneity and discovery.

The class will be tailored to the interests of the participants, and we will cover as many types of trees as we have time and interest in. These could include: pears, apples, apricots, plums, citrus, persimmons, figs, asian pears, cherries, peaches, and mulberries.

ART FOR PRAYER AND PEACE: A BRIDGE TO ONENESS Aimee Golant
ART FOR PRAYER AND PEACE: A BRIDGE TO ONENESS with Aimee Golant Sunday, June 26 3:00 - 4:00pm Aimee Golant will be speaking about an amazing project she is in the midst of creating called Art for Prayer and Peace: A Bridge to Oneness. This interactive and evocative exhibit has, according to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the "potential for contributing to religious harmony and peace."    Aimee was inspired by her experience, through travel and study, of the universality of diverse religious concepts. This universality is found in shared symbols, imagery and sound.Aimee embarked on a journey to express these shared links and commonality between religions and cultures through art and ritual objects.    She will discuss her greater vision for the ritual objects that honor this connection. Some of the pieces from the collection will be on display at the event, including the Torah and it's 'Oneness' accouterments. Art for Prayer and Peace is endorsed by both His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Pope Francis.    Come learn about this amazing project as it unfolds   Aimee Golant Foundation of Peace: Aimee's Artistic Beginning
