Dan Weiss, president/CEO of Metropolitan Museum of Art and former president of Lafayette College, will speak tomorrow at An Evening on the Karl Stirner Arts Trail, a fundraising event.
Other speakers will include Easton Mayor Sal Panto, Burpee Seed Corp. President George Ball, and Lafayette President Alison Byerly.
The event will feature an auction of works by Paul Deery, whose artwork is on the trail.
Within walking distance of both Lafayette and the downtown area, the Karl Stirner Arts Trail follows Bushkill Creek for 1.75 miles. “Through the placement of artwork in a transcendent natural setting, the trail seeks to stir the public imagination and sense of possibility,” according to the trail’s website.
The trail is named for Easton sculptor Karl Stirner, who spent 25 years as a mentor and unofficial real estate agent, ushering aspiring artists to Easton.
The Karl Stirner Arts Trail is “dedicated to advancing civic dialogue and infusing the community with creative capital, so as to bolster economic revitalization and foster civic and cultural pride.”
