Paths to Pier 42 has a summer stacked with creative programing for the neighborhood. Thanks to support from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, as well as other LES-based community organizations, the latest “Social Dress Lower East Side – Material Memories” is happening. What exactly does that entail? Artist Takashi Horisaki is hosting a series of sculptural workshops in conjunction with his aforementioned project, in which you can learn how to freeze your most meaningful treasures in time. Or plaster. The idea is to chat about the significance behind the item with others, thus knitting the community together through inanimate objects.

The free workshops start today – the schedule is as follows:

July 23 (Wed), 2-4pm at GOLES (171 Avenue B on E 11th Street)
July 25 (Fri), 3-5pm at Clemente Soto Velez Cultural and Educational Center (107 Suffolk Street, btw Delancy and Rivington Streets)
July 25 (Fri), 5:30-8pm at Clemente Soto Velez Cultural and Educational Center (107 Suffolk Street, btw Delancy and Rivington Streets)
July 30 (Wed) 2-4pm at The Tenement Museum (103 Orchard Street, 2nd Fl. The Delancey Room.)
August 1 (Fri) 10am-12pm @ 80 Rutgers (Everyone is welcome. Chinese translation is also available)

Sign up online, or just show up in person. More info can be found here.
