Opening reception: Friday, July 22 • 5-7 p.m.
In partnership with artist Matthew Perry of the Vermont Arts Exchange, students from Burr & Burton’s Mountain Campus identified, interviewed, and created mixed-media portraits of change-makers in our community. Over the course of four work sessions, the students sawed, sanded, painted, and glued. They faced challenges with construction and learned to solve problems creatively. The Community Portrait Project aligns with one of the central questions that guides the Mountain Campus experience: “What do people who are making positive contributions do to affect change?”
