Mary Ellen Strom & Greg Young’s Gabriel Canal
Gabriel Canal, a light and sound installation that will illuminate the Gabriel Canal. The goal of this project is to literally shed light on the historic canal system, to acknowledge the remarkable engineering abilities of early ranchers and to educate the general public about the environmental perspectives of the agricultural community.
Artists and members of the Gallatin Valley community will illuminate the Gabriel Canal with a sound and light installation. Ranching equipment will be transformed into musical instruments and a local choir will sing the story of water.
This work will happen at sundown as the ditch is slowly lit with an accompanying musical score.
Tours of local irrigation will be scheduled soon.
