Going for Green in Lyons
By Kathleen Thurmes
While the connections between Zero Waste and social justice issues may not be immediately apparent, it’s important to recognize that every step in the “stuff” life-cycle creates and reinforces a system of winners and losers. Not only do our economic system and modern lifestyles create massive amounts of waste, but they also produce grave social inequalities. From the process of extracting and harvesting raw materials, to the energy (mostly fossil fuels) used to make and transport products, to the landfills and incinerators where waste ends up, we can find workers exploited, communities polluted, and ecosystems damaged.
Lyons area artists are welcome to submit their wall hangable creations for Lyons Arts and Humanities Commission's 2018 Quarterly Town Hall Art Show Series - "Four Seasons." Deadlines and submission instructions are listed below.
Deliver wintry wall hangable creations (all mediums) with placards on Fri. Jan. 5 to Town Hall 4-7 pm; Show Opening / Community Tapas Potluck / Open Poetry
