Symphony Tacoma, the Museum of Glass (MOG) and Hilltop Artists are collaborating with Mount Rainier National Park (MRNP) in a project culminating with the Symphony’s 2016-2017 Season Finale on May 13, 2017. In commemoration of the Centennial of the National Parks System, the multi-layered project will engage area residents in music and glass art and raise awareness of the plight of Mount Rainier’s glaciers, which are melting at an alarming rate.
Art responds to life, and by building relationships in the community, art can serve as a catalyst for education, growth and transformation in a region. Through a process of community collaboration and working in multiple mediums, this partnership seeks to produce an inspiring experience, leaving participants sobered by the gravity of the ecological situation, but hopeful and empowered to undertake an active role in protecting our region.
This collaboration could happen nowhere else!
