Broadway Stages founder Tony Argento calls for Brooklynites to unite and participate in Ziemia, a cultural collaboration among Greenpoint residents. Tony believes the distinct cultural atmosphere of residents in North Brooklyn contributes to its exciting environment.
Ziemia will tell a cultural story distinct to the Greeenpoint identity through a public art installation by local conceptual artist Martynka Wawrzyniak. Centered around the theme that "our stories are written in soil," Ziemia appropriately embodies Greenpoint community's heritage and culture by symbolically representing our universal connection through soil.
Asking Brooklynites to contribute soil in destinations that express their personal moments, the 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 Greenpoint residents. The deadline to submit soil samples is June 21, 2017, so send yours today!
As a longtime Greenpoint community promoter and benefactor, Broadway Stages founder Tony Argento has made a commitment to sponsor the project to advance community adhesion. Tony sees the cultural exchange and community involvement of the Ziemia project to benefit the community. Join Tony and Broadway Stages to create a more intimate environment to encourage cultural exchange and bring together the diverse community in Greenpoint.
