Art in the Park 2014

For the second year in a row, the Wellesley Women Artisans 
presented a free community art event during Wellesley’s Wonderful Weekend. 
The community was invited to work on a large-scale community art installation using unwanted LP vinyl records reclaimed with the help of Wellesley’s awesome Friends of Recycling. Members of the Wellesley Women Artisans were on site to assist and inspire, and provided materials with the support of Wellesley’s Cultural Council, a local agency that is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. Many thanks to Wellesley’s Natural Resources Commission and Municipal Light Plant for their support. Many thanks for in-kind supplies and services from Green’s Hardware, Ace Hardware, Paul Lemieux, Craig Riggs and Sterritt Lumber. And thanks to all the art makers!

 “We are so pleased to be hosting a community art event for our town once again,” said Wellesley Women Artisans co-founder, Abby Glassenberg. “Our goal is to bring people together to work on a fun, creative project that we can all enjoy.” Wellesley Women Artisans member and event organizer Laura Fragasso agrees. “Art can be made with anything, including free materials others might overlook. This event is a way to get everyone involved in the creative process.”

We played LP vinyl in the park!
