Atlantic Salt Tour, John Hastings & Terrance A. Solomone Performance
Once the home of J.B. King’s Windsor Plaster Mills, a United States Gypsum Corp. plant, Atlantic Salt, Inc. made Staten Island its home in 1976 and opened their Richmond Terrace facility. The family-owned Eastern Salt Co., headquartered in Lowell, MA, has its Atlantic Salt branch on 10 acres, which have some of the most unique waterfront views on the North Shore. Atlantic Salt has been the venue and lead collaborator for the LUMEN festivals in 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016. Attendees for this event will gain access to this working waterfront site to learn more about the operations and process of producing the LUMEN festival.
There will be a narrated site tour of Atlantic Salt Co. by Terminal Manager Brian DeForest, a salty foodways demonstration, live presentations by maritime professionals and a sharing out about the Working Waterfront Initiative via a newly published descriptive report.
The program will also feature a performance of LUMEN Resonant Sound Space by John Hastings and Terrance A. Solomone.
The Atlantic Salt tour is being produced in collaboration with the ongoing Folklife Working Waterfront project.
