Community Design Session for the
MLK Freedom Walkway South Loop Artwork
Where: Southside Community Center
When: Saturday, February 15, 2014, from 3:00 to 5:00
Why: We need your vision!
Local artist, Annemarie Zwack, has been commissioned to design a visually integrated collection of public art pieces that will serve as the backbone of the Southside Loop of the MLK Freedom Walkway: a physical trail celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. King, in the context of Ithaca’s African American history. The walkway traces local events and people whose efforts mirror the national struggle for civil rights and social justice. Two loops of the walkway are ultimately planned, the first, the South Loop, will be located on the block of Cleveland Avenue between South Plain and South Corn Streets.
Come share your vision for this community asset! The concepts contributed by the community in this brainstorming session will inform the final design of the project.

Happy birthday to the late, great César Chávez: a labor rights and environmental justice activist, and a vegan. He said,
I became a vegetarian after realizing that animals feel afraid, cold, hungry and unhappy like we do. I feel very deeply about vegetarianism and the animal kingdom. It was my dog Boycott who led me to question the right of humans to eat other sentient beings.
