The Open-Air Arts Initiative held their first annual show, at the Blue Hill Public Library’s Britton Gallery, for the month of February 2017. The Open-Air Arts Initiative is a collaboration between the Blue Hill Heritage Trust and Cynthia Winings Gallery. Its mission is to use nature to ignite creativity in the young people who live on the Blue Hill Peninsula. Below are some of the amazing works from that show.
The Open-Air Arts Initiative is a self-driven program, in which school aged young people on the peninsula (Pre-K through 12th Grade) may visit any Blue Hill Heritage Trust trail or conservation property and create something that expresses their inspiration from and connection to that place. All participants’ work, once submitted, will be displayed and celebrated at an art show in the next year.
