Light of the Ocean Volunteers
LIGHT OF THE OCEAN is a dynamic, site-specific installation by Francisco Alvarado-Juárez, a New York-based American artist born in Honduras. With the help of community volunteers and experts from Cornell Cooperative Extension Marine Program, the two main galleries will be turned into a magical marine environment with pathways through sand, seashells and other organic materials indigenous to the East End, plus video projections of water and marine life, approximately thirty-two of Francisco’s large-scale acrylic paintings, and thousands of painted paper bags. The smell of the sea and sounds of whales invading the viewer’s senses will make for a transformative gallery visit.
The installation will be open to the public to view and volunteer from October 20 through November 1! Be part of the creative process and work closely with the artist by volunteering to help install the exhibit. Ages 15+. Students will receive valuable community service hours.
