Art Grows Here (AGH) is a FREE, 10-day, map-guided tour of art and performances throughout the towns of Hamilton and Wenham that will be on display from July 17-26, 2015. A map to all the AGH artworks will be available online starting July 17 at www.ArtGrowsHere.com, or you can pick up a printed map at any of the AGH installations.
Art Grows Here 2015 will feature 18 outdoor sculptures/art installations and five performances. The sculptures will be on display throughout the 10-day event and can be viewed at any time; the dates/times/locations of the performances will be announced on ArtGrowsHere.com as soon as they are available.
A kick-off party to celebrate the beginning of AGH’s 6th season will be held at the Wenham Museum (132 Man St., Wenham, MA) on Friday, July 17 from 6:30-8:30 pm, public welcome. There will be light refreshments and a cash bar (soft drinks are free). A $10 donation to help support the event is requested at the door but not required to join in the festivities where you can meet the artists and organizers of this salute to the arts. The Wenham Museum will also be a host site for two of the art installations, so partygoers will be among the first to see some of the inspired pieces that are part of this annual art event.
Art Grows Here is sponsored by Parrelli Optical and thanks its community partners The Wenham Museum and The Community House of Hamilton & Wenham.
