Connecting US 20

May 1st the Library will welcome Sal Strom and Lynn Moyers and their Connecting US20 Project which focuses on An Interactive Literary & Colorful Art
with local writers and libraries as community centers. Join us at 1pm for this free, art-filled event.

“Connecting US20 is America’s longest highway. We will begin May 1st in Boston, traveling 3,365 miles through 12 states. Finishing on May 31st in my hometown Newport, Oregon.

“Salty Oregon Coasty” Sal Strom, building chains of brightly colored safety pins and playfully tossing around swaths of dyed cheesecloth, will be combining art, books and fun – and the all-important human connection – to build a link across the continent.

Beginning May 1 at Kenmore Square in Boston, MA Strom and Moyers will travel US 20 through 12 states, ending May 31 in Newport, Oregon. What makes US 20 unique is being the longest continuously numbered US Highway at 3,365 miles. “Connecting US 20” is designed to link people through art, with multi-colored safety pin chains symbolizing the joining together of communities along US 20.
