COMMUNITY TAPESTRY PROJECT

COMMUNITY TAPESTRY PROJECT

CALLING ALL ARTISTS! The courage to create is a power to be respected. There is great beauty in things discarded, overlooked, and unappreciated. Yet, opinions and judgments can alter a fragile spirit.

In conjunction with the theatrical production of Zoe Comes Home, scheduled for May 5th and May 6th, 2023 at the Tusten Theatre, the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (DVAA) and the Community Tapestry Project are welcoming submissions throughout the month of April which will be displayed on DVAA’s Balcony Gallery and will serve as the set for the encore presentation of Zoe Comes Home, produced and presented by DVAA.

Each ARTIST-contributed “little” sculpture will be added to the “BIG” sculpture.  Individual pieces should be created out of found objects, recycled, or repurposed items, and will culminate when joined together into something new and beautiful, a community tapestry!

The call will be open from April 1st – 30th. The drop-off times and locations are Thursday – Sunday, 11 am – 4 pm, and by appointment at DVAA, 37 Main Street, Narrowsburg NY.

All participating artists will receive one complimentary ticket to a performance of Zoe Comes Home.


About the play
