WATERVILLE — The Waterville Creates! Public Art Task Group has announced three temporary public art exhibitions, which will be on view in the city from June through September.
Artists Maggie Libby, Lisa Link and Jesse Salisbury were selected to provide works based on their responses to a public call for artists’ reflections on the theme of the Kennebec River.
This is the second, large-scale public art project task group has overseen to advance one of the primary goals of Waterville’s Cultural Blueprint to provide diverse encounters with art and creativity in the public realm.
Link will also host an interactive e art and science walk to explore her public installation of “WordWrap2018: Swimming Upstream” at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 2, at the Quarry Road Recreation Area. Together with nature enthusiast Serena Sanborn, the walk will simultaneously investigate the natural world encountered on the Quarry Road Trails. Participants will create interactive photos along the trail incorporating nature elements. This event is free and open to the public, registration is not required.
