DAC and Darien Library Take Part in Eco-Friendly Community Initiative
The Darien Arts Center
together with the Darien Library is participating in Draw On! Goes Green, a community drawing festival presented by the
Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. All are invited to join educators from the
Darien Arts Center (darienarts.org) for
a special drop-in community art project at the Darien Library on Friday, March
21st from 11am to 7pm. Participants are invited to use discarded
dictionary pages to inspire one of a kind drawings, doodles and designs. The creations
will then be displayed together as part of a public art installation on the
library’s windows. Materials will be provided and all ages may participate.
Participating in the eco-friendly art initiative at the Darien Library gave the Arts Center the unique opportunity to help inspire creativity in the community. According to DAC Executive Director, Amy Allen, “The library is a wonderful venue for reaching out to people and encouraging some fun creativity. It is also a wonderful place for displaying everyone’s work. We are very appreciative and excited about this creative collaboration.”
