The Vermont Arts Council has launched its largest community art project ever.
People around the state are turning thousands of wooden artists’ palettes into paintings, sculptures, musical instruments and other works of art.
The Arts Council launched the Palettes of Vermont project in January. Since then, nearly seven-thousand wooden palettes and 30-thousand paper palettes have been given out.
Dozens of communities and 142 schools are taking part.
The city of Saint Albans hopes to create the world’s largest palette.
Bennington has more than 50 palettes on display in stores and businesses.
And on June 16th, all participants are invited to display their work on the Statehouse lawn.
