The People’s Collection
An invitation to ALL who live in Catskill, NY and the Hudson Valley to participate in the upcoming arts program Wall Street to Main Street, hosted by the Greene County Arts Council program Masters on Main Street project.
Wall Street to Main Street is pleased to announce an open call to all residents of Catskill and the Hudson Valley to share things you love in your home with your community in a beautiful common space. We ask that you bring one object that has inspired you and gives meaning to your life to be shown with your neighbor’s loved-things in a surprise exhibition located on Main Street. The exhibit, titled The People’s Collection, will open on Friday, April 20, 2012 as an important part of the shows and activities slated for storefronts and other available spaces on Catskill’s Main Street.
Coordinated by Hudson Talbott, noted children’s book author/illustrator, we hope The People’s Collection will be a wonderful community celebration, inspire the creativity of the region and start many great conversations. All entries will be accepted, unless they are violent, intentionally offensive or sexually explicit. Things we might expect for The People’s Collection would be photos, mementos, collectibles, handmade crafts, objects from nature… but we welcome the unexpected, too! It’s up to you!
Although we ask that you bring something you love, and although we promise to take the best care possible with your precious thing, we ask that you only bring things that you’re okay with other people handling, and with the understanding that even with the best efforts and care, accidents happen. That said, we’ll do everything we can to deserve your trust in care-taking your valuable thing, for a few weeks, and returning it to you exactly as you left it.
