Navy Yard Collects Hundreds of Winter Clothing Items for Local School Children

Members of the Navy Yard campus and the local community came together for the inaugural Navy Yard Winter Wonderland and Winter Clothing Drive December 17. The event included winter-themed crafts, games, performances by Philadelphia School of Circus Arts, and local food trucks.

The event was free to attend, but attendees were encouraged to bring a new or lightly used winter hats, coats, gloves, mittens, socks, earmuffs, boots, or scarves benefitting local elementary schools. Between the items received at the event and the donations from Navy Yard businesses, approximately 500 individual items collected.

The biggest donation came from Carol Shipon, who works at a Naval Surface Warfare Center at the Navy Yard, in the form of 175 handmade, crocheted hats.

 

Alpha Sacred Beings documentary screening.

Navy Yard Debuts Alpha Sacred Being Documentary at Navy Yard Fall Festival

The Navy Yard kicked fall off with a celebration and a documentary screening on October 19. More than 100 people came out on the first cold day of the season for an evening filled with food trucks, live music, games, and pumpkin painting.

But the main attraction was the world premiere of Group X’s very first documentary, “Alpha Sacred Beings.” The free screening included a special performance by the Red Blanket Singers, a Southern Style Native American drum and dance group!

The short documentary explored the work of Group X’s latest collaborating lead artist, Marianela Fuentes. Group X worked with Marianela to create a monument symbolizing a bridge between two Indigenous Nations. Alpha Sacred Beings (The Origin of Creation), was dedicated at League Island Park at the Navy Yard in June and is permanently on display.
