The Theme

The theme this year is “sanctuary.” All the art will be located in the Natural Path Sanctuary which is a green burial grounds and woods. “Sanctuary” has also become a term with many meanings within our current cultural and political environment. What does “sanctuary” mean to you?


Everything used to create your piece has to be able to decompose back into the ground, so no plastics, cans, etc. We encourage you to use what you find on the grounds but you can also use materials you find in other places.


The Farley Center will be posting about the art project through the process. Officially the show will be up mid-Aug. to mid-Oct and we will do a press release with photos. There will be a handout with a map that includes the name(s) of each artists, the title of the piece and a short description about the piece (that you provide) to help visitors find and enjoy the work. You are encouraged to tell your friends networks about the work as well.

More information and a tour of the grounds will come at the organizational meeting.
