Compositions and Kilowatts
September, 27 2022
Join us for an evening of music with Ben Cosgrove, featuring upcycled lamps from Repair Clark County. Columbia Springs is hosting this concert in the woods on Wednesday, September 28 at 6 p.m. There will also be a meet and greet with the artist after the concert. This concert is a part of Relit, Columbia Springs' upcycled lighting festival which showcases the connection between environmental education and the footprint of the everyday “stuff” we all have. Giving extended life to unrepairable items is full circle stewardship and preserves the natural resources used to create them!
