lanterns, giant illuminated puppets, glittering snowflakes, spectcular
costumed earth, roots, tree, ice, moon, bird, and willowy winter earth and
garden spirits, whirling dervish dancers, and luminous cocoons. The Hungry

its way into the La Plaza Cultural Garden 9th Street & Avenue C (sw

trees and bare bushes, a gardenscape of moving projections and light,
original music performed by Kochek Swaminathan with mk7 and Judy Sky, and

night with an aria of hope. Highlights include: an illuminated Winter Angel
by local artist Steve Jones, that flies off a 6 story building and into the
