Meadow Creek Art Display Frames
The Iroquois Falls Arts Council (IFAC) is pleased to announce that it is the recipient of a financial contribution from North Claybelt Community Futures Development Corporation (CFDC) in the amount of $1,000.
The Iroquois Falls Arts Council had been considering doing a project we called ARTECO. IFAC Director Stephanie Delaurier's idea involved building some outdoor art display frames with plexiglass covers and installing them on the Meadow Creek walking trail which will be open to the public in the future.
The North Claybelt CFDC financial contribution allowed the IFAC to purchase the materials needed to build the art display frames. The frames were designed by community volunteer Bill Smith and the materials were purchased locally.
IFAC has partnered with Monteith Correctional Complex for the construction of the frames and their installation on the trail. Superintendent Roger Graham is pleased to work with the IFAC on this project. A work party of inmates, under the supervision of Monteith Correctional Complex staff, built the art display frames during the winter of 2021-2022. They were to be installed on the walking trail at Meadow Creek in the summer of 2022. However, ongoing work on the former mill site has delayed the installation of these art display frames until June 2023.
There was enough material to build three of these art display frames. There has been an ongoing call for submissions for art to be placed inside the display frames. Several pieces of art have been donated. We are still looking for more.
The Iroquois Falls Arts Council gratefully acknowledges the support of North Claybelt Community Futures Development Corporation, allowing our community art project to move forward.
