Down to Less Than Two Weeks Before the Smithsonian Festival!
It is hard to believe that all the hard work of the teams here in Washington, DC and back in Wales will come to fruition in less than two weeks now! Everyone is very excited! The Ty Unnos, a building project of the organization Coed Cymru, is already taking shape as anyone in Washington, DC exiting the Smithsonian Metro stop cannot avoid noticing. This weekend, site designer Angharad Pearce Jones and her crew arrive to start an amazing installation project along one fence line. It will be fascinating to see this take shape.Watch our Web site, www.folklife.si.edu for schedule updates, biographies of participants, and special events. Check out the Welsh Assembly Government's site as well at www.wales.com for even more information.I hope everyone who can possibly make it to Washington, DC will come at some point during the two weeks: June 24 - 28 and July 1 - 5, 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. with evening events as well!Betty Belanus, Curator
