Join us to celebrate the launch of the 2016 Nickel Plate Arts Festival with the one-year anniversary of Mountain of Clay, an outdoor pottery studio and community art project executed by artists Kandi and William Jamieson! The final sculpture is now housed in the Library as Nonument: a public artwork assembled from vessels and pots created by community members last June. The Festival Kickoff will include:
Plus, celebrate the community project and the Bicentennial by contributing “seeds” from your community, which will be housed in the Nonument sculpture. These “seeds” will represent the past, present and future of our community and act as a time capsule to commemorate the state’s Bicentennial. Visitors can create their own “seeds” at a craft station or bring a small token to store in the sculpture.
