CALL UPDATE // October 2017

Last month, the autumn equinox officially announced the end of what, for us, has been an eventful summer. From our conclusion of StreamLines in Indianapolis in August to the ramping up of our projects in Milwaukee and New York City, a summer of hard work has gotten us excited about what the remainder of the year will bring! We hope you'll join us for some of the programming we have lined up.

Over the last month, we've seen a real demonstration of the immense challenges climate change has on our cities and communities. CALL's mission to make  sustainability tangible through the arts  provides an avenue to truly help people in local communities understand the impact of ecological challenges in visible, interactive, and proactive ways. CALL is dedicated to generating programs and projects that will lead to the development of creative, integrated solutions to mitigate the problems our cities (and the world) face. We are grateful for the support you provide us, which bring our efforts to life.

Keep in touch,

Mary & Olivia
Summer's Highlights
Our summer this year kicked off with a series of walks in West Harlem, where our +SPACE/EPIK project will be situated. Miguel Luciano and Daniel Carrion led us from the new Lenfest Center, where Luciano was in the inaugural exhibition Uptown , to the Manhattanville Houses around West Harlem and finally ending at the Hudson. The walk explored cultural identity, health, and history through an environmental lens.

Images to the right are from our walk through the beautiful Jenny's Garden, lead by Artist Kanene Holder and Biologist Paul Mankiewicz. Pictured are Julio Benitez (Jenny's son), Kanene Holder and Paul Mankiewicz on the WALK. This glorious Riverside garden, established more than 25 years ago, has grown over the decades with the help of the Benitez family and many dedicated volunteers.

CALL has been pleased to support the launch of Juanli Carrion's community gardening project,  OSS#MH  in Marble Hill; read all about it below.
