Will You Have Unwanted Eclipse Glasses After Tomorrow?

We’ve found this repurposing program that might be a fit for some: Eclipse Glasses USA’s donation program.

They are collecting used but undamaged eclipse glasses to send to schools in Latin American so school-aged children can view the 2024 Annular Eclipse.

The Reimagined Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party

SLC Arts is thrilled to announce a unique opportunity for women artists to contribute to the reimagining of Judy Chicago’s iconic artwork, “The Dinner Party.” This project aims to honor and celebrate prominent women who have made significant contributions to our society, particularly those who were not included in the original installation because over 40 years have passed.

We are making a call for 24 women artists with strong ties to the North Country to apply to be chosen to create a portion of our dinner party with 12 settings which include 12 tapestries and 12 place settings. To be considered for this collaboration project, please complete the following form. Artists who are chosen and complete their portion of this artwork will receive a $100 stipend.

Submission Deadline: May 7, 2024

The SaraPlacid Chapter alternates meetings at Origin Coffee Co.’s Lake Placid and Saranac Lake locations each month.

This event is free to attend but you must reserve a spot so we don’t go over capacity. Register HERE.

Silent Book Club is a global community of readers and introverts, with 500 chapters around the world led by local volunteers. SBC members gather to read and build community in quiet camaraderie. This is the SaraPlacid chapter, but you can learn all about the movement HERE.
