Year in review: A&E
Nationally renowned glass artist Ed Carpenter began meeting this year with two other local artists metal artist Eric Canon and woodworker Greg Kriebel to brainstorm ideas for the dramatic public art piece they plan to create in the entry area of the Forest Grove City Library. Carpenter is donating his time and design skills, but the project still needs money for materials and installation costs. The Forest Grove Library Foundation is holding fundraisers and also accepting donations any time at fglf.org.
In October, just a few months before Nelson Mandela died, one of his highest-profile supporters from South Africa visited Pacific University at the behest of its Center for Peace and Spirituality to speak on the country's struggle for justice. Albie Sachs, who lost an arm to a car bomb that was meant to kill him, spoke about the formation of South Africa's "truth commission," a long-overdue apology from the man who tried to kill him and other war stories from the country's path to equality.Add a comment
