We are excited to announce the next steps of the project!
The community choice was overwhelmingly for the sculpture proposed by Payne Junker Studio.
Over the past year, we have been working on engineering, securing additional funding. . .
AND, last but not least, adapting the final proposal to incorporate community feedback.
We think you will love the results!
Thank you to our community partners:
An "Angel" who has given us matching funds...
... please join them in supporting us!
Also thanks to the following funders:
The Vermont Arts Council Animating Infrastructure Grant program
The Better Places Grant program
The goal of the Beaver Street Art Project is to commission a work of art for the retaining wall at 27 East Main/Beaver Street that will:
Make our village more beautiful
Create a destination and stopping point in Wilmington
Pull the community together and reflect our historical sense of place
Give value to our community
Integrate the Beaver Street neighborhood into the flow of community activities
