Members of the Interdependence Day Visual Art and Writing Committee meet with high school students who are creating their responses to the First Interdependence Day Hexagon Writing/Art Project. Students in Junior and Senior High Schools throughout the region, state and country are invited to create art and poetry or prose around themes that require them to think globally and demonstrate their interconnectedness as citizens of one civilized world. All work will be presented within eight-inch hexagon shapes to be displayed as tessellations on the walls of The Melberger Arts Center (MAC), 123 Wyoming Ave., Scranton. A reception, open to the public, will take place on First Friday, Sept. 7, from 6 to 9 p.m. The exhibit will run through September. Shown planning for the event are, from left, Chris Mazzino, English teacher, West Scranton High School; Beth Burkhauser, Greater Scranton Interdependence Day Committee; Robert Dodd, Michelle Gerrity and Megan Smith, all seniors at West Scranton High School and Annette Palutis, Greater Scranton Interdependence Day Committee.
