Re-opening May 2017!


Earthsong, a motion-sensored sound installation based on conversations with local Haudenosaunee comes alive in the intimate wooded area around the Hopewell mound in Artpark's lower park.


Earthsong by Carin Jean White shares Native American heritage and culture, and draws attention to the natural environment of the area.  The project has been created and is managed in partnership between Artpark; an independent artist in residence, Carin Jean White; the New York State Parks Interpretive Department; Lewiston Council on the Arts; and our arts and cultural colleagues in the Haudenosaunee Communities. 



Haudenosaunee Consultant: Belinda Patterson

Sound Recording: Anthony DiGesare, Angelo Luciano, Carin Jean White





This project is made possible through a grant from the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area Grant Program and a grant funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature: administered by the Arts Services Initiative of Western New York
