"Art on a Limb"
A Community Art Installation by the Eastern Shore Art Center Committee on Public Art
September 10, 2016 - September 30, 2016
Join us in “yarn bombing” the downtown Fairhope trees! What, you say? Never heard of it? Well, it is the newest community art form that is sweeping the country and the world. And you can be a participant along with school groups, church groups, civic clubs, and groups of friends.
Teams will be assigned a tree in downtown Fairhope to decorate in yarn or other soft fabric “coats”. Pick a theme for your tree, or just go wild, use your imagination, as long as you don't harm the tree. Decorations will be installed on Saturday, September 10, 2016 between 8:00 am and 2:00 pm, and trees will be judged for prizes shortly after 2:00 pm.
The decorations will be up for the whole community to visit until September 30, 2016. For more information and how to participate, please email Gaye Lindsey at firstname.lastname@example.org or Philip Webb at email@example.com.

"Poppies for Veterans: Symbols of Sacrifice"
Poppies have been a symbol for the sacrifices of veterans since the poem “In Flanders Field” was written in 1915. In 2015, our Ceramics Department embarked on a massive effort to make several thousand red ceramic poppies inspired by the installation “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” at the Tower of London in November, 2014.
$20 each, or $50 for three. Stemless poppies are $10 each, $25 for three.*** Proceeds from the sale of poppies will be donated to selected LOCAL veterans organizations.
