SIAdvance, Winter Solstice Music Festival 2012 at Staten Island's Snug Harbor on Friday…
NYTimes, WINTER’S HERE, FINALLY…
NY1, "One of Staten Island's cultural gems suffered significant damage in Hurricane Sandy, and while a lot of repair work has already been done at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center, there's still a lot more to do. NY1's Amanda Farinacci filed the following report."
NYTimes, Since Sept. 11, more than five million daffodils have been planted as a memorial to the victims of the terrorist attacks. In the spring, the sunny blooms grace schoolyards and parks, sidewalks and community gardens.
The Richmond County Savings Foundation is a philanthropic organization contributing to the welfare of the Staten Island community. The Richmond County Savings Foundation sought to increase the quality of life of those who live, work, or visit Staten Island by funding an enchanting Tuscan Garden. Modeled after the celebrated gardens at the historic Villa Gamberaia in Florence, the garden pays homage to the style of 17th century Tuscan landscape architects. Just as the Villa Gamberaia marries the traditional city pallozo with the bucolic nature of the Tuscan countryside, the Richmond County Savings Foundation’s Tuscan Garden and Building P create a similar effect.
In June of 2012, SHARP artist Gustavo Galvan used the Richmond County Saving’s Foundation’s Tuscan Garden as a runway to debut “Shopping Bag Intricacies.” The exquisite natural landscape of the garden was the perfect backdrop for a fashion show focused around the reuse and up-cycling of everyday materials. Models donned Galvan’s intricately hand-crafted designs and confidently walked through the garden to the resounding applause of onlookers.
