Where The Peep Light Leads

Mississippi Water Trail.........

 

 

Event by Mississippi River Water Trail
Online: mohistory.org
Thursday, March 11, 2021 at 6:30 PM CST – 8 PM CST
Price: Free · Duration: 1 hr 30 min
Public · Anyone on or off Facebook


Mississippi Meanderings is going on-line this year! We’re partnering with the Missouri History Museum for river-themed talks on the first three Thursdays in March 2021.
Lee Hendrix has spent much of his adult life working on the Mississippi River pursuing the glow of a peep light. In this talk, Hendrix will share stories about his experiences piloting commercial towboats, overnight passenger boats such as the American Queen, gambling boats, day excursion vessels, the massive M/V Mississippi, and dredge tenders. He’ll discuss the different types of river vessels and explain how people who use the river safely interact with one another. He’ll also talk about how he has helped students, teachers, and adventurers navigate their Mississippi canoe trips.
This event is free and will be live on Zoom. To view the presentation, go to the Missouri History Museum website to join.

Press Release for Call for Artist:

Outdoor sculpture at the Jaime Hines Prairie at LaVista Park

Godfrey, Illinois.......

 

 

For Immediate Release
January 27, 2021
Contact: Christine Favilla christine.favilla@sierraclub.org 618-401-7870


Call for Site-Specific Sculpture Proposals for the Jaime Hines Prairie at LaVista Park in Godfrey, IL
                     Open to Artists from Madison, Jersey, or Calhoun Counties
                     “Plight of the Prairie: pollinate, collaborate, re-create, celebrate!”


The Three Rivers Project of the Sierra Club, in conjunction with Community

Cultivators and the Village of Godfrey Parks and Recreation Department,

seeks proposals for a site-specific sculpture at the Jaime Hines Prairie at

LaVista. Artists working in the design, construction and installation of outdoor

sculpture are invited to submit proposals for a budget of $2,000 to be unveiled in

late summer 2021. There is no entry fee. Open to both professionals and students.

“This sculpture will be placed near the new prairie at LaVista park to raise awareness

 of the vital importance of the role of prairies in maintaining the health of our

 eco-systems,” said Christine Favilla, co-founder of the Jamie Hines Prairie at

LaVista Park. “Prairies are intimately dependent on pollinators which are now on the

decline due to habitat loss, chemical use, invasive species, and disease.” This project

 is site specific and it needs to pair well with the existing sculpture by the Butterfly

 Project but does not have to be the same style.

What: Call for Art Proposals for permanent placement of an outdoor sculpture exploring

 native Illinois prairies.
Theme: “Plight of the Prairie: pollinate, collaborate, create, celebrate!”
Where: La Vista Park at 2421 West Delmar in Godfrey, IL 62035
When: Submission deadline April 16, 2021. Proposals will be accepted on-line before

5pm. Art installed by mid-July
Budget: $2,000 available for the creation, development, and placement of the winning

sculpture. Funded by the Sierra Club’s Three Rivers Project and the Community Cultivators.
Register: click here

 

This sculpture is a project within the Sierra Club Illinois Monarch Campaign aimed at

planting an additional 150 Million milkweed stems. The education and outreach portions

of the Monarch Campaign also include Small Pollinator Pocket Grants for residents, free milkweed seeds, access to free webinars on how to plant native pollinator plants, and the designing and purchasing of informational park signage for the 3 main Sierra Club pollinator gardens and prairies in the Riverbend.
