March Exhibit - Key art explores our common experiences
Opening and talk on Thursday, March 2nd @ 5:30 PM
The Key Idea Project
Imagine a key that would unlock anything you desire. What would you unlock? Over four thousand people have answered that question through a unique art and writing project. All ages, 1-100+ use the exact same materials to create art based on the metaphor of a key. The Key Idea™ collects and exhibits the optimism of a community. 
 
The exhibit is coming to our Library in March to honor both retiring Town Administrator, Sheila Vanderhoef and the Cape Cod community who have contributed so many thoughtful pieces of art. In the exhibit, viewers will notice the development of writing and art but most importantly, the changes in thinking. People of all ages write about something important to them. The Key Idea™ showcases the thoughts, dreams and goals of every age. In The Key Idea™ exhibit, one will see what is important at different stages of life. 

You are invited to add your voice to the hundreds of KeyStories on exhibit at the Library as part of the March exhibit. Project creator Lenore Lyons will be at the Opening on Thursday March 2nd from 4:00-7:00 pm and will present an Artist Talk at 5:30. Materials to participate and easy to follow directions will be available throughout the month.
