Archistream, a traveling mobile educational facility crafted from a 1969 Airstream, will make the final stop of a Vermont tour in Woodstock on Friday.

Aug. 28-29 — WOODSTOCK — Frog Hollow, known for being the first state-recognized craft center in the nation, is at the tail end of a unique traveling exhibit touring five locations across Vermont during the month of August. The exhibit hits Woodstock on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 28-29 for its final stop on the tour.

Utilizing the Vermont Chapter of the American Institute of Architects’ Archistream (a traveling mobile education facility crafted from a 1969 Airstream) as a traveling gallery, Frog Hollow is hosting a mobile exhibit to tour the state. The exhibit is focused on artists who have been featured in the Regional Educational Television Network series, “The Artists of Frog Hollow.” The series was created over the past three years and consists of four- to 10-minute profiles of individual artists providing an intimate connection to the people behind the craft. Samples of each artists work will be on display. The video profiles will be playing on loops via different Archistream installed media devices.

The exhibit premiered in front of Frog Hollow on Church Street in Burlington for one week beginning Aug. 12. It moved to Winooski on Aug. 20; to St. Johnsbury on Aug. 22; heads to Springfield on Aug. 27; making its final stop in on the town green in Woodstock near the Norman Williams Library where it will remain Aug. 28 and 29.
