Standing Rock Gallery Fans 'Celebrate The Garden'
Music, poetry, dancing and food were draws to Spicebush & Spearmint Festival.
About 50 artists and supporters of Standing Rock Cultural Arts whiled away their afternoon Sunday listening to music and poetry, watching children perform and play during the Spicebush & Spearmint Festival.
The event was held to celebrate the green space located next to the North Water Street Gallery that has been used by Standing Rock over the past 20 years for events, programs and community gardening.
“We wanted to be together to celebrate that space,” said Lisa Regula, one of the festival organizers. “There is something really special about that site. It just gives you a really positive vibe.”
The Standing Rock Garden was chosen as the new location for the Kent Wells Sherman House, an 1858 Greek Revival home that must be moved from its current East Erie Street site to make way for an extension of Kent State University’s Esplanade project.
