Student art work now on display at Brooks Library

BRATTLEBORO — Students from three housing communities in Brattleboro have created accordion books of artwork and poetry that are currently on display at Brooks Memorial Library in Brattleboro.

The project, titled “Image to Page,” took place during outdoor classes sponsored by the Art in the Neighborhood program over the summer months. Staff from the program elicited descriptive words for poems from the students while the students painted and drew.

Art in the Neighborhood, founded by state Rep. Mollie S. Burke, P/D-Brattleboro, has provided tuition-free art classes to children at Moore Court, Ledgewood Heights, and Westgate Housing since 2009.

This project was supported by Vermont Humanities and the Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason Foundation.

Art in the Neighborhood says it is grateful for the support of these foundations, and also appreciates Brooks Memorial Library for providing exhibition space. Books may be viewed in the main library room through Tuesday, Oct. 11.
