Local poet and writer, Heather Davis has launched a project called The Bridge Project into our community with the intention of connecting people across all types of differences. The call is out for us all to participate by creating art or writing that expresses what is inside our heart. How do we want to connect? What does connection mean to us individually? In a world that feels so divided sometimes, let’s join together and build a bridge! The final product will be a bridge for display all around town to admire and explore. How fun!
Theme: How we connect to other people across differences of age, gender, race, class, religion, culture, sexuality, nationality, ability, etc.
Requirements: Create artwork and/or write on 5 x 7 watercolor paper.
Submit: Send to Stover Insurance at 214 East Jackson Street, Front Royal, VA 22630 or place into marked boxes at Blue Wing Frog, Happy Creek Coffee, or the Samuels Public Library. DEADLINE: February 15, 2018
Note: Finished artwork will become part of a community art installation and will not be returned. Please send your name & contact info with the artwork.
Workshops: Free art/writing workshops will be held on January 20 and 27 at the Samuels Library from 10 am-12 pm to create the cards. Ages 12 and up.
