The Women’s History Project, a pan-island collaboration of MDI libraries, call to artists is open!
Registration Deadline: January 25th, 2017
In celebration of Women’s History Month 2017, the Bass Harbor Memorial Library, Jesup Memorial Library, Northeast Harbor Library, and Southwest Harbor Public Library will hold exhibits during March.
Theme: “Creating Connections”
Generation to generation, neighbor to neighbor, or island to island, women have woven much of the fabric that creates connections and communities. How did they accomplish this historically? How does this happen today in our Mt. Desert Island community? In what ways are you a creator and keeper of the connections? The theme of the 2017 Women’s History Project exhibit explores these ideas, and we welcome your personal interpretation.
You might choose to create a new piece or you might exhibit a personal item from your family’s heritage. All types of media and craft are welcome. Exhibitors, all of whom are women, need not be professional artists and may be of any age. As space is limited, only one piece per exhibitor will be shown.
Exhibitors are welcome to show at more than one library. Space is limited, so registration is first come first served. To register at a library, contact:
