Wilmington Works was awarded an Animating Infrastructure grant by the Vermont Arts Council in May of 2019. This is a competitive grant program designed to help communities incorporate art into their built environment.
The grant is site-specific: that is, we were awarded the grant specifically in order to commission a high quality work of art for this site.

Public art is a way to beautify the spaces we pass by every day.
The goal of the Beaver Street Art Project is to commission a work of art 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.
