A Break In The Clouds Over SteelStacks

The SteelStacks (blast furnaces) at Bethlehem Steel have been closed for 30 years but have been a huge entertainment and historical complex, consisting of music and art events throughout the year. During Musikfest 2016, their annual 10 day long music festival held at SteelStacks, there was a bad thunderstorm and thousands of attendees took shelter in the Visitor's Center and when the storm was over, I ran outside and took this one shot. To me, a Sustainable Travel Project is something that is reborn...and usable in a prolific, positive manner for the community and it's residents. This is exactly what Artquest has done with SteelStacks and the Artsquest Center in Bethlehem, Pa.
