ArtSpires: a community art project & exhibition
Fall 2020 – Spring 2021
Colorful sculptures are still up all over Hopewell Valley!
See where the 63 spires have sprouted, download a detailed map revealing installation locations, and get virtual access to information about artists and artwork. See the exhibition.
It is always a joy to support and attend one of the HVAC events. One of the favorites is their Annual Pumpkin Carve. The creativity of the artists and the innovative thinking skills of Carol and her team allowed for a “drive thru” Pumpkin Carve last year. It was exactly what the community needed to get people out of their homes (safely) and bring some much needed laughter to both children and adults.
2020 Annual Scholarships
