Art in the Park: Celebrate Sol LeWitt

August 17, 2023


Waterville Creates, Colby College Museum of Art, and Waterville Public Library

Castonguay Square, Corner of Front and Main Streets, Waterville

This week, join the Colby College Museum of Art to create an art project inspired by the artist Sol LeWitt, on view at the Colby College Museum of Art’s campus location. One of the ways Sol LeWitt works is to create a set of instructions, and then collaborate with others to complete what he calls “wall drawings.” At this program, we’ll be inspired by Sol LeWitt’s large wall drawings at the museum, and use a variety of colorful materials to transform “ideas” into art.

Book: Hey, Wall A Story of Art and Community by Susan Verde

Please note the new location for Art in the Park at Castonguay Square, the little park at the corner of Common and Main Streets! 

Waterville Creates has joined forces with the Waterville Public Library and the Colby College Museum of Art to offer dynamic, creative summer programming to provide arts experiences for all. This season kicks off with a new summer reading theme “All Together Now: Todos Juntos Ahora (to-dos hune-tos a-or-da )” with stories and creations focusing on kindness, friendship, and unity. Each Thursday participants at Art in the Park can listen as a book is read aloud and create art work based on that book or community theme.

This program is free and open to all ages and levels of experience. In the event of rain or extreme heat, Art in the Park will be indoors at the Paul J. Schupf Art Center.
