The Village Canoe is a multi-phase art project to create art and community from outdoor experience. Through an open-call invitation, 10 artists across various disciplines and practices were chosen to paddle, camp, and make work along Penobscot River and Bay in August 2019. Following the 10-day journey from river to sea, the artists had nearly a month to create and complete work before hosting a free, public, interactive art exhibition of the work inspired by the artist residency experience. The show took place over the final weekend in September 2019 in a temporary wood-and-plastic greenhouse structure along the waterfront in Heritage Park in beautiful, downtown, Belfast, Maine.
