Throughout 2014, a vast network of artists, musicians, dancers, authors, filmmakers, and community members from around the globe are celebrating the independence days of 59 countries that once gained freedom from British rule. The most important part of the project is that they are all celebrating for countries OTHER than their own. As part of this project, Heather and Brian will be celebrating Burma’s 66th independence day on JANUARY 4TH at GCAC by giving away 66 hand-painted lanterns. Stop by during Art Walk to select yours!
