The brain child of Cari Brezina, a local clothing designer, Lighting Lansdowne evolved from an idea, involved the town's creative community and invited townsfolk and photographers alike to participate. For the weeks leading up to the event, Cari and Marty von Rosenstiel organized a number of lantern making sessions at Artspace Lansdowne.
These lanterns were constructed using balloons as armatures and wound with glue soaked string, yarn or fabric strips. Once dry, the balloons were popped, leaving behind an intricately woven, spherical orb, in the shape and size of the original balloon. More than 40 of these lanterns were made by community members, including adults and children.
Many local photographers, both amateur and professional were contacted, and asked to participate in the shoot.

There are two great American deli traditions: the Italian deli and the Jewish deli. The Avenue Delicatessen, on Lansdowne Avenue in historic Lansdowne, PA just minutes from Philadelphia, will marry the two in a modern, healthy, and delicious way.
As we work towards our spring 2013 opening, we've launched a Kickstarter campaign to light up the streets of Lansdowne. You can help make this dream a reality by supporting us as we design and build an amazing sign: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2056921441/an-amazing-sign-for-the-avenue-delicatessen.
