Wellesley Women Artisans is pleased to announce the 6th annual Art in the Park community art event to be held in Simons Park (directly adjacent to the Wellesley Free Library) on Saturday May 19, 2018 from 1-4pm. This community event, organized in collaboration with Wellesley’s Wonderful Weekend, is designed to promote creativity and is accessible to all ages, featuring different mediums and materials each year.
Our project this year is called LOOK – intentionally encouraging participants to look up, look around, and look to the future. Artists of all ages will observe, photograph, and draw the eyes of other participants. The drawings will be done on recycled yard signs from this year’s town elections, and then will be assembled into a larger yard sign of sorts, mirroring and looking back at the richness and diversity of our community. We hope that everyone is inspired to express themselves, have fun, and leave their imprint on this community-made art installation.
