Art in the Park: Wearable Art!

July 6, 2023


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

Castonguay Square, Corner of Common and Main Streets, Waterville

This week, join the Colby College Museum of Art to create a wearable art project inspired by the artwork of Paula Wilson currently on view in the Paul J Schupf Art Center!

The artist Paula Wilson creates art that blurs the line between art and life. Inspired by her, we will create wearable art that tells a story of you. Create stamps or use pre-made ones, that celebrate the wonderful things in your life, and add them to a variety of items. Look to nature, your home, and the objects that make you feel like you.

See Paula Wilson’s art in the exhibition, Ashley Bryan/Paula Wilson: Take the World into Your Arms in the Joan Dignam Schmaltz Gallery of Art in the Paul J Schupf Art Center, now until July 31st.

Book: Kindness Grows by Britta Teckentrup.

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! 

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 JuntosAhora (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 artwork 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.
