Cambria Center for the Arts is hoping to bring some sunshine and rainbows to the community with the Rainbow Community Art Project.
CCA President, Mari Fedrow, was inspired after watching the One World Together at Home Global Concert on television. In one segment the program featured photos of rainbows placed in windows and storefronts to bring hope to children around the country.
“I just thought our community could use a little spirit-lifting as well,” says Fedrow. She reached out to CCA members, artists, students, and friends to start making rainbows to place around town as well as in their own windows. The message is “Together We Shine Through!”
Mari added, “Creating art can bring peace to an artist, and sharing art can bring inspiration to the viewer. And what better way to connect us all than to share rainbows- the symbol of hope, gratitude, inspiration and joy.”
Anyone in the community can participate. Everyone is asked to use their imagination to create a rainbow, by drawing, painting, sewing, knitting, or using any medium you prefer. Then display your creation in town or in your home’s window.
CCA Gallery Director, Janet Rooney, has placed a drop off box at Cambria Center for the Arts, 1350 Main St., for those that would prefer the volunteers to place their rainbows for them. You can also post a photo on Facebook or Instagram and tag @CambriaAlliedArts and #CambriaRainbow.
CCA is hoping to see rainbows everywhere to bring inspiration and hope to the entire community.
”The artists are enjoying the burst of creativity during these challenging times,” Rooney said. “Many have responded in such positive ways. It’s just fun.”
