About the Sponsors
This project is made possible with funds
from the Individual Artist Grant Program of the Arts Council of Rockland and the Decentralization Project of the New York
State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
This Community Art Project runs
for one year, from March 2015 to March 2016.
Your letters to departed ones will be collected, shredded and cast into paper Spirit Houses, which will be
the vessels that hold your words.
The paper houses will be burned to release the words to their intended recipients, in a ceremonial raku firing at the Rockland Center for the Arts in West Nyack, NY on November 1, 2015.
