Broadway Stages Founder Tony Argento calls for Brooklynites to unite and to participate in Ziemia, a cultural collaboration amongst Greenpoint residents. Tony believes the distinct cultural atmosphere of residents in North Brooklyn contributes to its exciting environment.
Ziemia will unfold a cultural story and narrative distinct to the Greeenpoint identity through a public-art installation by a local conceptual artist Martynka Wawrzyniak. Centered around the theme that”our stories are written in soil,” Ziemia appropriately embodies Greenpoint Community heritage and culture by symbolically representing our universal connection through soil.
Asking Brooklynites to contribute soil in destinations that express their personal moments, the Ziemia project seeks to mold together the intimacy of personal experiences symbolized through soil into a single ceramic sphere. The sphere will serve as a community portrait reflecting the various moments of Greenpoint residents. The collection of personal memorabilia in soil will be made in a singular ceramic sphere with the addition of Greenpoint clay to illustrate community unity. The project deadline ends June 21, 2017 to submit soil samples, so make sure to send your soil today!
As a longtime Greenpoint community promoter and benefactor, Broadway Stages Tony Argento as made a commitment to sponsor the project to advance community adhesion. Tony sees the cultural exchange and community involvement of the Ziemia project to be beneficial for the community. Join Tony Argento and Broadway Stages to create a more intimate environment to encourage cultural exchange and bring together the diverse community in Greenpoint.
