More than 100 people attended the Alliance’s Winter Assembly on February 2 at The Point CDC. The theme of the night was public art with a river theme, and we showcased some recent installations and performances that were inspired by our beloved river. Check out a map of Bronx River public art – and go check them out!
The program, introduced by stalwart volunteer Mike Gupta, included presentations from Rocking the Boat on water quality monitoring and Mary Mattingly on the "Swale Floating Forest". We also got caught up on upcoming river events, including the 2016 Fish Parade, Amazing Bronx River Flotilla, and the Soundview Park Art & Music Festival. Attendees enjoyed food, drinks and good conversations. Many thanks to all presenters and to the entire family at The POINT for hosting such a wonderful event.
Also, a special thank you to The Wine Cellarage for the lovely donation and our old friends who always provide oysters for our Assembly Down East Seafood and of course our long-term friends at Bascom Catering for always working with us.
