Yankeetown Pond Project Screening Events in December

Posted by on Nov 19, 2015 in News | No Comments

I am very pleased to announce the locations and dates of the final video screening. Below is a short description of the event. (Read more about it on the in the project website)

Bearsville artist Keiko Sono presents Yankeetown Pond Project, a video chronicling her public art project which brings people from different social circles together with their deep connection to their land as the common thread. Originally planned as a community time-lapse video production, the project was soon turned upside down by a resident protestor. This encounter brought the project through transformations, just as the pond itself is constantly being reshaped by beavers, weather, and human interactions, while delving deeper into such questions as: What is our ideal relationship with the land? How do we preserve the quiet charm of our region while accommodating the increasing number of visitors and property owners?

The video will be screened at two locations, December 10 at Catskill Center in Arkville, and December 16 at Center for Photography at Woodstock. Each screening will be followed by a talk, in which Sono will share her experience, with plenty of practical suggestions for artists and activists interested in working with the community.
