Taber Museum Hosts the Baskin Visual Arts Project
Art by Ashley Bastian
Williamsport- The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society is hosting an exhibition of student art produced during the Dr. June E. Baskin Visual Arts Project. The exhibition will be on view from September 2 through September 28. Admission to the exhibition is free, however a fee is charged to tour the rest of the museum.
The Visual Arts Project committee plans an annual summer camp to benefit students throughout Lycoming County. This was the ninth year to sponsor a camp. In designing the project the committee decided to put together a high quality experience for at least one student from each middle/junior high school and one student from each high school within Lycoming County. The 2014 art camp, which took place at the Taber Museum during the week of June 16-20, 2014, provided each student with materials for working with a variety of ink materials. Activities during the camp included quality instruction from talented local artists using ink in both traditional and non-traditional ways.
Students contributed to the collaborative Think It! Ink It! hanging sculpture which will be presented to Starbucks, which is located at 154 Academy Street, Williamsport.
The committee has extended an invitation to the public to view the artwork on Sunday, September 14, 2:00 until 4:00pm. A short program will be held at 2:30pm. Admission to the reception is free.
