May 2018: Spring into Creativity

ArtCentral: Spring into Creativity

Spring is the season of hope, renewal, and possibility. We open our windows to allow the fresh spring air to cleanse our home and mind. We clean out our home and put away the winter gear, hopefully including the shovels, and make room for summer. It is time to bring out the porch chairs, bicycles, and grilles. We welcome the warm breeze and the longer days.

There is a hope that comes with the change in seasons. We anticipate the end of the school year marking another year of growth; having more time for play with longer daylight hours; a fresh routine full of summer activities including casual visits with neighbors, walks through the park, sitting outside, and meeting friends for a hike. There are hopes and dreams of what summer will look like even though we know that there won’t be quite enough time for everything.

With so many opportunities to connect and create, the lull of February and March seemed to fly right by. It has been a busy month of activities, events, and conversations!

On March 20, we screened the third film in the ArtCentral Film Festival: Season One (series is co-sponsored by the Northern Black Hills Rotary Club) which was titled “Making Noise: The Story of a Skatepark.” The film by Cecilia Cornejo Sotelo was made in collaboration with the Northfield Skateboard Coalition. It chronicles the lengthy struggle of three generations of skateboarders of Northfield, MN to secure a permanent place for their sport, bearing witness to young people’s resilience and perseverance as it exposes the victories and failures of the civic process in small-town America.
