WILLIMANTIC- Eastern Connecticut State University's graphic design program will be collaborating with Thread City Development, Inc., the Willimantic Screen Project, the Willimantic Brewing Company and the Kerri Art Studio & Gallery to illuminate the Kerri Gallery on Main Street as part of the Green Valley's fourth annual Green Lights initiative. The Kerri Gallery will host an opening reception for Green Lights from 6-8 p.m. on Feb. 27. The reception is free and open to the public. The gallery will glow each night from Feb. 27 to March 5 with a series of publicly visible, inventively imagined, green light images created by Eastern design students with the assistance of Eastern Professor of Art June Bisantz. "The Last Green Valley," a 35-town National Heritage Corridor in eastern Connecticut and south-central Massachusetts, works locally to celebrate heritage, preserve natural resources and respect working lands. Each year, Green Lights encourages residents of the region to show support for the National Heritage Corridor by displaying green lights in any way they can imagine between Feb. 15 and March 17.
