cultural experience to Rutherfurd Hall to provide a space where the
public can appreciate and also engage in performance, film, and visual
media," explained Deirdre Bryant Worth of the RHF. “The
organizers of the event intend to create an environment for local
artists to gain exposure, while also bringing the community together in
a uniquely cultural way.”
Bryant Worth added, “The
Foundation strives to find innovative ways to provide financial support
for the upkeep and renovations to Rutherfurd Hall, always with an eye
to engaging the community.” and "This holistic, art-based
experience will be unique to the surrounding counties, by going beyond
the generalized concept of an art show or a film festival.”
Peter Maier is based in the
Poconos and is available to the press for interviews.
