Art in the Park: Streetscapes in Motion

June 29, 2023


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

Castonguay Square, Corner of Common and Main Streets, Waterville

This week, join the Colby College Museum of Art to create an art project inspired by the artwork of James McNeill Whistler, currently on view at the Colby College Museum of Art’s campus location. Create a mobile or wall hanging that features pencil and watercolor sketches of the streetscapes and places you see each day—gas stations, restaurants, bridges, parks, shopping centers, schools, and the list goes on. 

See James McNeill Whistler’s art in the exhibition, Whistler: Streetscapes, Urban Change at the Colby College Museum of Art’s campus location (5600 Mayflower Hill), on view through October 22, 2023.

Book: The Circles All Around Us by Brad Montague

Whistler: Streetscapes, Urban Change is a project of the Lunder Consortium for Whistler Studies and is made possible with support from the Lunder Foundation.

Please note the new location as Art in the Park and the Summer reading program will be at Castonguay Square, the little park at the corner of Common and Main Street! 

 Summer Reading Theme: “All Together Now: Todos Juntos Ahora: Kindness/Friendship/Unity 

Art in the Park is back! 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.
