After 15 years, GoggleWorks is
finally putting down roots...
I
f you have lived in the region long, you likely know about
GoggleWorks Center for the Arts, which welcomes some
200,000 each year to its city-block sized campus for artmaking,
high-quality exhibitions, and creative experiences of every
kind. Now the arts and culture leader is exploring creativity of
a different kind by launching " Art in the Garden, " a city garden
partnership with the nearby Lauer's Park Elementary School.
For over a decade, Lauer's Park, a uniquely successful K-5
school, developed a network of garden classrooms, native
plant habitats, greenhouses, beehives, outdoor ponds and
waterfalls, and a fitness track. The effort was led by former
principal Gordon Hoodak along with teachers, students, and
volunteers, including the artist-horticulturist Nich Hemmerich.
Hoodak's recent retirement as principal and the pandemic led
the new principal Jasmin Sanchez-Lopez to explore creative
ways to steward the gardens and reignite the program. And
when it comes to creativity, she needed to look no further than
the adjacent former goggle factory GoggleWorks calls home.
With the support and planning of a local coalition of
organizations, residents, artists, and a volunteer task force
facilitated by the Wyomissing Foundation, GoggleWorks and
Lauer's Park developed " Art in the Garden. " The project will
allow GoggleWorks to apply its interactive art studio model
to the dynamic garden environment at Lauer's Park, serving
school children and community residents alike.
To launch " Art in the Garden, " project leaders, with support from
the Wyomissing Foundation, are hiring a Garden Manager to
lead educational programs and garden operations. Growing and
food production will begin this spring, primarily in the publiclyaccessible
community garden on North 2nd street, a container
garden with fun artistic accessories. The Garden Manager,
