Art-Community-Light. Some images from the 2016 Artists’ Lantern-Making Workshop

A few days ago, over 20 artists, educators and creative-makers spent two days with artists Angelo Arnold and Gowri Savoor, to create large-scale lanterns to spearhead this year’s River of Light in Waterbury. Some incredible structures came out of the weekend including: a bird of paradise, a giant acorn, several toadstools that will form a fairy ring, a saguaro cactus and a coffee plant. Look out for them at the parade on Dec 3rd!
