Mastodon Moves To Remsen [PHOTOS]
American Incognitum (Mastodon), which was sculpted by locally raised artist Colin Boyd, will be on display at the Arts Center for the entire month of August, with its grand revealing August 2nd at 6pm. This scale replica of a mastodon skeleton will be the focus of a series of events at the Arts Center, including a meet and greet with the artist on August 18th, and a series of children’s activities led by storyteller Sheila Harris.
The unveiling of this exhibit is part of the Family Fun Weekend sponsored by the Remsen Arts Center and the Remsen Depot. The weekend’s activities include a puppet show led by local author Melanie Zimmer on August 2nd at 7pm, a family fun day including bike races at the Remsen Depot on August 3rd, and a concert by the Tuesday Night Big Band on August 4th. For all three days, an art show is also being hosted at the arts center.
American Incognitum (Mastodon) brings the past to life with a massive sculpture demonstrating the grace and power ancient mastodon’s possessed.
One of the stops on the Haunted Rails Ghost Train is going to be the Remsen Community Arts Center, a converted church on Main Street, in Remsen. This building has a long and varied history, and if you pay close attention while there, may be home to a spirit or two.
