DanceArt, a non-profit University of Utah student group, is coordinating a variety of activities for an all-day program with a socio-environmental message - "Earth Day 1991: All One Voice."
The activities, which will be held on the U. campus Monday, April 22, will begin at noon with guest speakers arranged by DanceArt and International Student Week representatives. Local artists will perform throughout the day, with various environmental and social groups providing information for attendees.Art students will produce an earth sculpture made of wire and wood, to which students can attach garbage they've found throughout the day. Wasatch Green, a student environmental organization, and the Bennion Community Service Center will oversee a recycling marathon they hope to keep going beyond Earth Day.
The day will culminate with a live DanceArt performance at 7:30 p.m. on the library plaza. The ensemble will dance to music synthesized from plant vibration noises and animal sounds with a visual art backdrop of environmental images projected onto the Marriott Library's east wall.
Other participant groups include the theater department, Black Student Union, Intertribal Student Association, International Student Association and Baha'i Club among others. DanceArt also is coordinating activities with Salt Lake City's Earth Day Committee. The event is funded by a grant from the Multicultural Board of the Associated Students at the University of Utah.
