Poultney Arts Day – Imagination Grows on Main St.

Friday, May 27

A variety of arts organizations, schools, community members and youth will come together on May 27, 2022 on Main Street in Poultney VT to demonstrate and share with the community the power of art, imagination, sculpture, performance  and presentation of creative practice. The funding will support this opportunity to expose and ignite the power of the realm of arts from local institutions to over 60 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. The purpose of the event is to ignite an inter-organizational collaboration opportunity the day of the celebration and in projects beyond. Poultney Arts Day has become a tradition within our community to celebrate art, imagination, community and inter-organizational partnership.
