The Woods Hole Public Library invites all creative community members to participate in this summer’s Community Art Project! Each summer, the Library selects a common medium or theme, community members create works of art using that medium or theme, and the amazing results are displayed in the Library and auctioned off as a fundraiser. This summer, the common medium is a ubiquitous material in all of our lives: newspaper! Community members of all ages are encouraged to participate in this fun and creative tradition. The Library has an ample supply of newspapers available for those who do not have their own at home. Completed projects should be brought to the library by Monday, July 22, and will be on display for the entire week. On Saturday, July 27, from 5:30 – 7:00 PM, all are invited to attend a party and silent auction. All pieces will be auctioned off as a fundraiser for the Library, and this party is a festive time to come together to celebrate our community’s creativity. There is no limit on what participants can create. Newspaper can be treated simply as the medium or could inspire an artist to explore a deeper theme connected with newspapers. In past summers, participants have created everything from mobiles, collage, sculptures, paintings and more!
