Art to Inspire & Heal
The Pentucket Arts Foundation hopes everyone has been staying strong and healthy during these challenging months. In times that are so uncertain and scary, it can be difficult to keep our heads up and to keep moving forward. Though we may feel alone, it's important to remember that we are all going through this together.
We believe in the transformative power of art to heal, nurture, and to bring people together, in both times of crisis as well as peace. Art is a medium through which we discover our similarities as well as celebrate our differences with the people around us and the world in which we live.
To this end, we'll be posting weekly "discoveries" this summer, in the hopes of inspiring our creative community and highlighting the beautiful and creative ways that people are creating art around the world.
On his Youtube channel, Pilot-by-Day-Model-Builder-by-Night Luke Towan is doing similar projects that are definitely worth checking out, if you're in need of a "little" inspiration! Check out the amazing miniature worlds he creates completely by hand!

A heartwarming public art film starring long time residents reflecting on local traditions and lore. This 30 minute documentary debuted at our "Past is Prologue" exhibit during the summer of 2019.
This past summer, the Pentucket Arts Foundation earned one of a coveted handful of creative partnership grants from the Essex County Community Foundation. ECCF in partnership with the Barr Foundation is funding 11 projects from Lynn to Newburyport as part of the Creative County Initiative (CCI) -- a groundbreaking collaboration designed to elevate the region’s arts and culture sector and support creative expression and the local creative economy.
