If you’ve walked in Blackstone Park in the last year-plus, you may have noticed whimsical and eye-catching works created by nature/environmental artist Pam Steager with the Conservancy’s approval. Now Pam is planning a family-friendly community event in collaboration with the Conservancy, local libraries, and schools, and with support from RI State Council of the Arts. On Sunday, December 19 from 2-4:30pm “Calling Back the Light” will include a labyrinth in Blackstone Field, mandala-making, and lantern procession to launch the mandala onto the Seekonk River. Bring your own source of light – lantern, flashlight, LED candle etc., but no open flame, please. Bring also any materials from your yard that you’d like to add to the mandala.

The Rochambeau Library is offering paper lantern-making takeaway kits December 13-18. Appropriate for kids over age 3. Pick up yours to make a lantern at home then bring it to the event.
