Art is universal communication.  Sadly, during the past year, we’ve been deprived of the arts and have experienced varying degrees of social isolation. The Stonington Lobster Trap Tree brings people and unique perspectives together again. Through this captivating composition, an abundance of creativity and a diversity of styles are being blended together for a beautiful outcome. More than 100 talented professional artists from Rhode Island and Connecticut are collaborating to bring this unique art installation to fruition.  While most are using acrylic paints, some are creating their buoy using decoupage, mosaic tile, and even yarn!  Each of these works of art will be clear coated and displayed on the community tree and then be available for public auction February 4th at St. Mary's Church in Stonington from 5:30 - 7PM. This aesthetically stimulating display will alter the landscape in a dramatic way and has the power to influence our mood, our culture, and impact the local economy. The Ocean Community Chamber of Commerce would like to thank all of the artists who donated their time to support this initiative.  Contact information is provided with the photos of each buoy so that you may learn more about these incredible artists and so that you can shop their gallery or commission them for your own special project.
