A Community Art Project and Exhibition
Artwork by HomeFront Artspace Artists
ArtSpires is the newest community art project and exhibition by the Hopewell Valley Arts Council with sculptures on display through spring 2021.
The project and exhibition commemorates the loss of native ash trees from the harmful effects of the emerald ash borer beetle as part of the organization’s ongoing initiative Out of the Ashes: Art Emerging from Fallen Trees. ArtSpires are milled from American ash wood felled by Hopewell Township and transformed into art.
Find them! Spy which spires are sprouting and where on the map below for installation locations. Check out the virtual ArtSpires exhibition for information about artists and artwork.

Thank you to our ArtSpire Sponsors
We seem to select public art projects that are large and heavy – first the Stampede oxen – and now fallen ash trees! As with all of our projects, it would be impossible without the support of our generous sponsors. Shier Tree Expert and Dudes with a Truck are handling transportation of the large wood, and Delis Landscaping will be installing the art spires for the exhibition.
Please help us pay it forward by supporting those who support our community with your patronage. Thank you!
