Robert Lang designed our Peace Flight sculpture that is on Bryon Street up to the hospital. His origami work was translated into the metal sculpture and was installed in September 2013. He also came to Huntingdon to lecture on origami. His work is amazing. ...

Robert Lang is a physicist who worked at NASA studying lasers and has 46 patents on optoelectronics to his name. However, that's not what he's best known for now: he's a legend in the world of origami. His intricate designs are second to none, and they actually have applications back in engineering.

So excited for our Chair-ity Auction with the Huntingdon County Library this Wednesday, May 3 at 6:30 pm. ...

Join us Wednesday, May 3 at 6:30 pm for a Chair-ity Auction. The Huntingdon County Library and the Huntingdon County Arts Council will be co-hosting the auction which will raise funds for both organizations. The event will feature a silent auction of chairs painted by local artists and will also have raffle baskets. Tickets to the event are $10. The first chair is called "Play" and was painted by seniors Drew Watson and Emily Wennick. The second chair is called "Color SPLAT!" and was painted by sophomore Logan Allen and senior Jonathan Bair. All the artist are students in Erin Shaffer's 3D Design class at Huntingdon High School. If you'd like a chance to bid on this chair, stop by the Library or Arts Council for a ticket or buy one at the door. Join us at Mayfest today to see the chairs in person and keep watching our social media for more chair and basket previews before the auction. Sponsored by The Daily News.
