Eco-Art Festival Returns to Pine Lake

April 28, 2010

The seventh annual Eco-Art Festival will be held at Hartwick's Pine Lake Environmental Campus on May 2, 2009. The event is a celebration of artistry, music, and ecological sustainability.

A wide variety of activities is planned throughout the day. These include hands-on crafts, tie-dye, hemp-making, sound art with Charlie Bremer, live music, and fire spinners. The event will culminate in the delicious Chili Cook-Off.

The day will be capped off by an innovative and energetic Recycled Ball featuring the musical stylings of The Horseshoe Lounge Playboys. Those who attend the ball are asked to wear either second-hand clothing or clothes made from recycled materials (i.e. duct-tape, cardboard, etc). The Recycled Ball is slated to begin at 8 p.m. in the Vaudevillian, and the public is invited to attend. Non-Hartwick attendees will be asked to contribute a $5 admission fee.

The Eco-Art Festival is sponsored by Grassroots Environmental Club and Pine Lake Club, and is funded by the Student Activity Fee and Pine Lake Fee.
