Volunteer’s Day
Saturday, July 11
8:30 am to 12:30 pm
It’s gonna’ be fun!
If you’re age 14 or older, join us for this family-friendly rain or shine event. Volunteers will be working outside while enjoying some quiet/Zen time within our beautiful nature preserve. No technical expertise or heroic feats of strength are required – just a willingness to roll up your sleeves and spend a few hours working alongside like-minded art and nature lovers. We’ll provide the tools and safety gear. Volunteers are encouraged to wear long pants, hiking boots or other sturdy closed-toe shoes and a hat – and gardeners, please bring your own gloves. In addition, participants should bring water, sunscreen and light snacks. A complimentary pizza luncheon from Town Tavern will be served following the work period. Please note that no pets are allowed.
After weeks of intense deliberations, I-Park’s Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to postpone its 2020 residency season. The organization simply could not come up with a plan that would assure the artists a safe, enriching residency experience – one that would be in keeping with I-Park’s ethos of collegiality and permissiveness. After reviewing the various scenarios, all riddled with hypotheticals and restrictions, the board determined that it would be best to cancel the season and invite the accepted artists to reschedule their residencies into either 2021 or 2022.
