An historic wind storm ripped through Leelanau County in early August 2015, leveling acres of woodland, forests and residential structures. The broken remains of sheds, docks and other wood structures provided the raw materials for two young entrepreneurs, siblings Bella adnd Zach Pryor, to turn destruction into construction.
The duo salvaged storm-damaged wood and began creating iconic, decorative signs. They built a small business, the profits of which were directed back to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Their new enterprise also gave them a constructive, creative, life-affirming way to work through their feelings of sadness about the storm and its impact on their Glen Arbor home.
Come and meet Bella and Zach and hear their story!
This program is offered in conjunction with the Glen Arbor Arts Center's exhibition “New Views: Home/Place,” a deep look into home and place identity. It runs June 7 – August 8 in the GAAC gallery.
