Easton Main Street Initiative takes home top award.
HARRISBURG, PA- Pennsylvania Downtown Center (PDC) has named its best performing Main Street Programs of 2015. This award recognizes those programs that have demonstrated an “across the board” capacity to generate new jobs, new businesses, public and private investment and volunteer hours. The top performing Main Street Programs across the Commonwealth for 2015 are: . 1st - Easton Main Street Initiative, 2nd - Greensburg Community Development Corp., 3rd - Latrobe Community Revitalization Initiative, 4th - Ardmore Initiative, and 5th - Ebensburg Borough.
The determining criteria measures program activity as reported annually by local Main Street Managers. Community revitalization organizations are then ranked from top to bottom, with the top performing program in each of the sixteen evaluated categories receiving a score of 1. This year there were forty-nine community organizations eligible to be evaluated. The rankings across all of the categories are then tabulated and the organization with the lowest total number is the top performing program.
PDC, the coordinating program to the National Main Street Center for Main Street programs in Pennsylvania, is honored to see these downtowns acknowledged for the goals they have set, accomplished and in many cases, exceeded. Each community has also met the ten performance standards established by National Main Street Center to be a nationally accredited Main Street Program. These standards include topics such as training requirements, planning methods, and community involvement.
Founded in 1987, the mission of Pennsylvania Downtown Center is to build and support the capacity of local nonprofit organizations, municipalities and individuals to enhance the overall well-being and sustainability of Pennsylvania’s communities. For more information about the accredited communities or the Main Street program, contact Maria Wherley at (717) 233-4675 ext. 116 or email her at email@example.com
Easton’s Karl Stirner Arts Trail dedicates its newest sculpture along the trail.
22 June 2016, Easton, PA
– The Friends of the Karl Stirner Arts Trail will be dedicating the newest sculpture to be added to the Karl Stiner Arts Trails on Friday, July 1st, 2016, from 4:30-7:00pm. Local Easton artist, Paul Deery created the installation on the trail over the last few months. Deery’s "Waterway," was the recipient of the People’s Choice Award from last summer’s "Possible Realities Two" exhibition in Lafayette College's Grossman Gallery.
The event is free and open to the public; the dedication ceremony will begin at 5:00pm. 3rd & Ferry Fish Market will be providing lite bites and beverages throughout the evening and music by Rian Carr and Jake Heck will round out the night. The dedication will take place at the “Waterway” sculpture, which is approximately 2/10 of a mile from the North 13th Street trail entrance.
“Possible Realities Two” was a call for environmentally focused sculpture entries during the fall of 2014. The public was invited to view and vote on the 25+ local and regional artists on display at the Grossman Gallery of the Williams Visual Arts Building at Lafayette College’s new arts campus.
“‘The Possible Realities’ exhibitions came about for two reason,” stated Jim Toia, Chairman of the Karl Stirner Arts Trail and Lafayette College's Director of the Community Based Teaching Program at the Williams Visual Arts Building. “First, we wanted to create an opportunity to give regional artists a voice and a stake in Easton’s art trail. Secondly, we wanted to give our community the opportunity to see the potential of art on the trail, especially in regard to nature-based and environmentally sensitive work.” Toia noted that he looks forward to creating this kind of opportunity again.
Paul Deery’s proposed piece received the most votes from the public and was awarded a $4,000 stipend to produce and install his work along the trail. Deery said, “This sculpture, “Waterway,” combines my skills and experience as a landscape designer and visual artist to realize a site specific installation which is to be looked at and physically experienced as one walks through it. It's purpose is to give people a sense of being like water as it flows through a channel, where space is compressed and deepened, and then releases as you emerge on the other side.”
Attendees from the surrounding neighborhoods are encouraged to walk to the evening’s event, however parking is available at the following locations: North 13th Street trail parking lot and the trail lot by 500 Bushkill Drive with access to the trail along Bushkill Drive, at the “blue bridge.” Additionally, a shuttle will be provided by Lafayette College, with stops on Lafayette College Campus at the Williams Arts Center (corners of Hamilton & High Street, Easton) and in the southwest quadrant of Centre Square. The shuttle will run continuously from 4:15-7:30pm.
More information about the Karl Stirner Arts Trail can be found at www.KarlStirnerArtsTrail.org
On Saturday, September 24, 2016, from 1 - 4 p.m., there will be an art show featuring works by Preston Hindmarch in the Easton Cemetery. Featured this year will be notables who have an association with Lafayette College. The Karl Stirner Arts Trail will participate along with the College.
