TAG VISION: Together, Art Grows
The TAG VISION Project, “Together, Art Grows,” is a youth-focused initiative that aims to build community and neighborhood pride through the creation and installment of public art in Northwest Rutland, VT.
The TAG VISION Project will start with a Spring Craft Party at the 113 Library Community Space during April Vacation and then a Community Input Session with the goal of getting the most input as possible from residents who live in the Northwest Rutland. At the community session, residents will vote on the location and type of art for the public art installment.
Throughout the spring and summer, the youth participants, neighborhood volunteers/experts, and a “hired” expert will work to create a piece of community art.
This is an “adult-initiated, shared decisions with youth” project, so the process at this point is purposefully flexible- the structure is created but room is left for the youth participants to make decisions about the appearance, character, and message. The art will be conceptualized and materialized indoors and then installed with the youth participants and more volunteers, and then a community celebration will follow- where the process starts anew.
