BERLIN — Starting July 8 through fall, the “Big Art ~ Bold Vision” exhibit featuring 16 artists will be affixed to Berlin Mall’s sizable windows.
“This is a high quality group of artists, and it’s a delight to bring their wonderful work to the people,” said Janet Van Fleet, the exhibit’s curator and one of the founders of Studio Place Arts in Barre. “The big idea of using the mall’s windows to exhibit great art was a challenge I couldn’t resist.”
Artists include Rosalind Daniels, Anna Dibble, Janet Fredericks, Jessa Gilbert, Steven P. Goodman, Wendy James, Mark Lorah, Mickey Myers, Maggie Neale, Elizabeth Nelson, Adelaide Murphy Tyrol, Arthur Schaller, Jayne Shoup, David Smith, Kathy Stark and Frank Woods.
In conjunction with the “Big Art ~ Bold Vision” exhibit, the Berlin Mall is home to the “Little Art ~ Big Fun” kids art project—a hands-on instructional experience led by art educators Tina and Todd Logan—every Saturday from July 16 through September 3, at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.
The “Big Art” exhibit and “Little Art” kids program is an example of how a town center concept brings people of all ages together, and “Big Art ~ Little Art” is a glimpse of big things to come at Berlin Mall,” said Michael Rushman, a consultant to the mall owners.
Mall tenants include: Avenue A, Bath & Body Works, China Moon, Claire’s Boutique, Game Stop, GNC Live Well, JCPenney, JCPenney Styling Salon, Kohl’s, Maurice’s, Olympia Sports, Optical Expressions, P & S Furniture, Payless ShoeSource, Regis Salon, SHOE DEPT., Wirelesszone, Vermont Bobbin and Walmart.
