Earth Day, Art Market, Film Screening
This special day was founded in 1970 and just to refresh your memory, the purpose is to promote awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment. Actually, we are fortunate to admire and feel grateful for the bay, the redwoods, the glorious Marin highlands, Angel Island, Muir woods, Ocean Beach etc. However, we also need to lend a hand to clean up our environment. Here are a few ways to come together. And checkout the Art Marketing and an upcoming film screening.

April 23. Create with Nature On Stinson Beach
This is such a fun way to spend a day appreciating one of our most beautiful and enjoyable locations. Environmental artist Zach Pine created this event in 2005 as a way to connect people with each other and the natural world. This event combines beach cleanup with creative activities. Using sand rocks, shells and other natural objects, beach goers work alone and in groups to spontaneously create outdoor sculptures. The beach is transformed into a playful and evolving sculpture gallery. Get your buckets and shovels out and make a difference while “playing” at the beach! Get the details.

April 27. Cecil Williams – Film Screening & a GLIDE Talk.
Everyone in the bay is familiar with Rev. Cecil Williams, the legendary leader of GLIDE Church. What you may not know is that in 1975 a television program was created focusing on the now famous Rev. Williams. After four decades buried in the place wherever VCR’s go, the program is now available for showing. The essence of the now 86-year-old Reverend is captured in this show. His charismatic nature and fiery focus shines through and depicts Williams as he was when he began mesmerizing audiences at GLIDE. Following the screening, Rev. Williams, Janice Mirikitani and Hon. Willie L. Brown Jr. will reminisce about this unique era in San Francisco’s history. Hearing these three SF icons as they provide insight on community that has been created throughout the years will no doubt, be inspiring and an evening to be remembered. Wed. April 27th 6:00 p.m. Free of charge. GLIDE, 330 Ellis St. Get the details.
