Cicadas calling again

Here’s your chance to immortalize those pesky cicadas, whose recent once-in-17-years appearance in the area left ears ringing and tree limbs drooping.

The Morton Library in Rhinecliff is planning what they call “The Cicada Series, a once in their lifetime event.”

The plan needs your participation, library officials say. Take photos, paint pictures, make sculptures, shoot video, create music, and/or whatever else inspired you about/by the cicadas.

The work will be collected the week of Oct. 21 and then the library will hold an opening reception on Nov. 1 at 6p.m. The exhibition will run through the month of November. Items may be priced to sell or just for viewing. And kids’ work is welcome.
