The Eastern Shore Art Center and Committee on Public Art join forces once more to bring the community together in “Art on a Limb”, September 10-30, 2016.
Fairhope has been YARN BOMBED!
Just over 40 teams of artists have decorated the downtown trees of Fairhope in colorful coats over the weekend in the latest Eastern Shore Art Center community art project “Art on a Limb”!
Artworks were installed Saturday, September 10th and will be up until September 30th. Councilman, Jack Burrell, and Owner of Mobile Yarn, Heidi Sunday, judged all 43 trees Saturday afternoon and after a tough deliberation, announced the winners at the Fairhope Welcome Center. (For the full list of award winners, see the second page.)
A People’s Choice Award will be announced at the Art Center’s closing celebration, September 30 at 4pm. You can vote for your favorite tree at its corresponding business. Just check the sign in front of the tree and drop a donation in the business’ ballot box. Ballot box donations go to the Art Center’s community outreach efforts!

"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.
