Meeting to discuss Gateway Project

The Southern Indiana Gateway Project seeks to connect the Southern Indiana communities of New Albany, Clarksville, Jeffersonville and Utica through the construction of four artistic gateways from recycled, “green” construction materials along the Ohio River in various park and community spaces. The ultimate goal of this project is to facilitate cohesion between the myriad of arts and community organizations that exist in these four cities (as well as the cities themselves) in an unprecedented way.

An educational/informative meeting by Scott Irick will be from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., March 6, at Jeffersonville City Hall, second floor conference room, 10th Street, Jeffersonville. Irick is an earthship expert that has assisted in the creation of many structures in New Mexico. He will lead the informative meeting identifying what earthship sculptures are, how they are made, and what they can look like.
