It was a beautiful sunny day for the first Art in the Park event in Simons Park on Saturday, May 18. The event culminated in an inspiring art installation that will remain along Brook Street for the week. The individual frames resemble paintings, drawings and sculptures. Together they form a large mural of our community's collective creativity.
Many thanks to those who came out to make art in Simons Park on Saturday, May 18th. We want to thank the following people and organizations for their support and encouragement: our Local Cultural Council, our Natural Resources Commission and other Town officials, our Municipal Light Plant, Roy Switzler and the Celebrations Committee, Friends of Recycling, James Hannon, School of Fashion Design, Boston http://www.schooloffashiondesign.org/sfdv2aboutus.htm , Green’s Hardware and Harvey’s Hardware. It could not have happened without the guys who built the structure that supports the installation, the enthusiastic student volunteers and interns from our schools and colleges, and the artistic vision and dedication of Wellesley Women Artisans, in particular Crystalle Lacouture who designed an amazing promotional flyer and banner for the event. While every frame is truly special, thank you to those who made commemorative weavings including the American flag, South Korean flag, a big red W for Wellesley, the Municipal Light Plant logo, Boston Strong, and Wellesley Free Library’s Tenth Anniversary. Wellesley Women Artisans and Wellesley Community Art Project sponsored Art in the Park in collaboration with many. We welcome community feedback.
