Friday, May 26 at 5 p.m.—POULTNEY—A variety of arts organizations, schools, community members and youth will come together on May 26 on Main Street in Poultney to demonstrate and share with the community the power of art, imagination, sculpture, performance and presentation of creative practice. This opportunity and event has the mission to expose and ignite the power of the arts from local institutions to over 300 Poultney and local youth, teachers, local artisans and community members. All organizations involved share a similar goal to enhance the world using art as a vehicle and to share their creative process and practice with the next generation of makers.
Learners and youth from Poultney High School, LiHigh School, Poultney Elementary School and other kids will watch, engage and enter the event with many ways to watch and learn about artists and creatives in their local and regional community.
The creative community of the town and beyond will be able to collaborate, connect and grow, as community members are invited to engage and explore the happenings of the day. There will be various exhibitions on display for people to see at Stone Valley Arts and along Main Street. These will be on view for groups of students to engage with using scavenger hunt activities. Additionally, students from LiHigh will showcase music in front of their school, along with a few other artist demonstrations in the Journal Press building and along the sidewalk of downtown.
This year, Main Street will become a stage for creative expression with Poultney Arts Day at dusk, 5-7 p.m, with dance, theatrical and music performances in the street. A local arts market will also host a variety of artists and makers who can demo and share their works with the community.
Poultney Arts Day has become a tradition within our community to celebrate art, imagination, community and inter-organizational partnership.
