In the Path of Totality by Jennifer Adrian

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine—In celebration of the total solar eclipse, the Wintergreen Arts Center is featuring an art show and offering an art-making event during the First Friday Art Walk on April 5, from 5:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m.

The public is invited to come view pieces of eclipse-themed art created by local artists. At the same time, Wintergreen is hosting a Family & Friends Art Night for tweens, teens, and adults to come together and create their own fierce and fiery sun. So, whether guests are viewing or doing, there will be something eclipsed based for everyone.

“We are looking forward to celebrating the eclipse in a very creative way,” said Gretchen Violette, Wintergreen’s events coordinator. “We hope families and friends will come out to both view art produced by local artists as well as create a unique souvenir of the eclipse for themselves.”

Sign up for Friends & Family Art Night here.
