Third Annual Lubec Community Art Event

Lubec -

LUBEC, Maine – The 3rd annual Lubec Arts Alive event will take place from July 5-8, sponsored by Bar Harbor Bank and Trust, local businesses and contributions from local residents. All venues are free and open to all ages. Children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult.
This year’s community art work, inspired by local artist Jean Bookman, is a kinetic sculpture to be erected in Lubec. The 8 foot long likeness of a herring, will have 25 moveable small fish within it’s stainless steel frame. The public is invited to paint a fish- whimsical, colorful, realistic or otherwise – a tribute to Lubec’s heritage and the herring and sardine commercial industry. Stop by the tent at Flat Iron Corner from 10-3 p.m. Tuesday, July 5 or Wednesday, July 6 to paint a fish.

On July 8 everyone is invited to create Art on the Beach, building imaginative forms and sculpture with found objects. This event occurs at Mowry Beach, in back of the High School and also accessible via Pleasant Street, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Bring your inspiration, sunscreen, and something to drink.
