Let In The Light
Something wonderful will be happening in Cheshire Connecticut. Tomorrow, September 18th from 11-4 the Window Project, “Let In The Light”, will be unveiled at the Ball & Socket Arts space. There will be great art, food trucks, and live music at 493 West Main Street Cheshire.
This is the beginning of transforming the old Ball & Socket factory into a community arts center. The boarded up windows are being replaced with fabulous works of art.
Here’s a sneak peak at what’s to come. Twenty-seven windows on one side of the building pay homage to artists of Cheshire’s history, like John Frederick Kensett.
Six windows facing the main street is a mural project done by renowned local muralist Tony Falcone. The mural project gives a nod to the former factory as the windows glow with the gears of manufacturing.
The final twenty-six windows will show off the works of current artists in the community.
Take some time and join in this celebration of the mission of Ball & Socket Arts, Inc. as it creates a collaborative arts community in a former manufacturing factory. Learn more about their mission HERE.
After you check out the Windows Project, take a walk on the newly paved Farmington Canal Linear Trail.
Take a trip to Cheshire. It’s worth it!
