Conserved public land inspires young artists

Conserved public land inspires young artists

A celebration of art by children and teenagers that was inspired by conserved public land took place on Saturday, February 3 at the Blue Hill Public Library. The show was the Second Annual Art Show for the Open-Air Arts Initiative, a collaboration between Blue Hill Heritage Trust and Cynthia Winings Gallery. The ongoing, year-long initiative invites youth to create art of any variety that is inspired by a piece of conserved public land. Among the works currently on display at the library during February are paintings, drawings, poems, songs and photos, all inspired by land owned by Blue Hill Heritage Trust, the Town of Blue Hill, and Maine Coast Heritage Trust. All forms of creative expression are welcome, For more information on the Open-Air Arts Initiative, how to participate in 2018, and upcoming events visit openairarts.org.
