Land Art Generator Initiative: LAGI 2017 Willimantic: An Energy Generating Artwork

On March 3, 2017, the Institute for Sustainable Energy (ISE) at Eastern Connecticut State University and the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) Office of the Arts hosted the Land Art Generator Initiative for a workshop in Willimantic.

Participants in this afternoon “think tank” put their heads together around the design challenges of a prominent site on Bridge Street in the heart of Willimantic. The site is owned by the Willimantic Whitewater Partnership (WWP) who is interested in bringing forward the best ideas for how to utilize the parcel, which they have recently remediated and prepared for development.

During the workshop, community members investigated how renewable energy technologies can be incorporated into public art and creative placemaking opportunities so that the intervention on this exciting site will bring the greatest benefit to the city and its people.

The WWP site offers the perfect opportunity to integrate renewable energy, with a richness of resources, including hydro, solar, and wind as was made evident on the extremely blustery March day of the workshop!. The site, in such a prominent location in downtown Willimantic, is ideally situated to be a catalyst for economic and community development. Interestingly, there is a history of energy around the property. Hydro power provided much of the energy used to run the Smithville cotton mills. Two generations of dam expansions provided increases in power output. There still remains the option to bring small scale run-of-the-river hydro power generation back to the site.

Willimantic Whitewater Partnership (WWP) has recently remediated a prominent site in the heart of Willimantic, Connecticut and prepared it for development. Soon it will be home to a new whitewater park and other public amenities that WWP envisions will be powered with on-site renewable energy.

An invited LAGI 2017 Willimantic competition to design an energy generating artwork for this site will launch in late 2017. Connecticut-based teams will be selected through a state-wide request for qualifications process. An informational session that is open to the public will be held to kick off the process. It will be a networking event where artists and designers can team up with engineers and architects, and others in order to form teams and prepare an response.
