Art Fits Vermont
About the Project:From the Vermont Arts Council website:
"Art Fits Vermont is the Vermont Arts Council's second statewide community arts project. Modeled on the wildly successful Palettes of Vermont, the Council distributed 15" wood and paper puzzle pieces to encourage all Vermonters to create, showcase and celebrate art.
The Arts Council launched Art Fits Vermont in April 2008. Since then....
* we've given 9,500 wood puzzle pieces and 51,000 paper puzzle pieces to individuals, schools and community groups across the state.
* 191 organizations and 146 schools are taking part.
* participants hail from 172 towns in all 14 counties.
* 60,000 people (that's 10% of Vermont's population!) are making art."
