What a memorable opening reception! Thank you to everyone that attended Immersed and made it an awesome event! Alyssa Novak and Barnabas Daru enlightened us with their seagrass expertise. Wendy Drexler drew visual metaphors with her beautiful poems, and the band The Sea The Sea enriched the evening with their powerful music. Sculptor Karen Meninno and Berna for the on location public art-sculpture and mural support. David Thomson from Artlery160, thank you for providing a space and technological platform for such a collaborative evening!
I have a moment and wanted to send you a message of congratulations! for a wonderful and creative opening event.
I enjoyed listening to the scientists-I now know the difference between sea grass and marsh grass!
While I was listening I kept thinking about the uniqueness of your event and how beneficial
it was for attendees. In addition to seeing your beautiful work they walked away with SO much more.
I think you have discovered a new way to have others view art and understand context and inspiration in a much deeper way than in the usual art opening.
I also had fun talking to the other guests and I hope the night left you feeling ‘job well done’!
Thank you for a terrific evening!”
