#VBStrong Community Art Project

VBStrong Remembrance Event

Marking a day of remembrance for the #VBStrong Community. There will be a final push to collect the last of the 1,000 cranes for this community arts project this Friday at The Z.

You can bring the origami cranes that your family has made and would like to contribute to drop off this Friday from 3-5pm.

Where: Zeiders American Dream Theater 4509 Commerce Street Virginia Beach, VA 23462

When: Friday, May 29, 2020 from 3-5pm 

Description: Our Community Liaison will be at The Z to safely facilitate collecting your origami cranes. Your response has been incredible! We are up to 850 cranes! Please help us get to 1,000 to bring peace & healing through art for both the tragic events of May 31st & the challenging events of today. Questions? Email sibel.galindez@thez.org. 

Please Note: The Z will be marking the 4:06PM moment of silence for the tragedy at Building 2 virtually on Friday with a special FB live culminating event for this community art project.
