Happy Valley

Happy Valley
Connections: A Community Arts Project The community arts project involves a creative venture to engage members of the community in creating a visual representation of the ancient fable titled, "The Take of the Two-Headed Bird." The fable was written by Vishnu Sharma, a political pundit in the 3rd Century B,C. In addition to fostering community relationships between artists and students at Virginia Tech as the concept and form of this exhibit evolved, the viewing of the finished exhibit will allow viewers to add their comments and art as the final image to the telling of the story. Video images and an original musical score will accompany the exhibit. The original concept for this project is the doctoral research by Deepu George. Happy Valley portrays Chapter Two High in the sky and down below in the valleys of mountains, it gained flight with its thousand dreams and desires. The two minds became one as time faded. With honey and wild fruits, it nourished its body to share its love. .
