June 22 was a warm sunny day and a perfect time to spend at the Lynden Sculpture Garden. The event on Saturday celebrated refugees and their stories, art, songs and dances. I had a great time dyeing a piece of cotton with indigo. Arienne, an artist from North Carolina, was teaching adults and children the ancient way of batik. Families held picnics, sampling great ethnic food and coffee. The sculptures were the perfect backdrop for this colorful display.
