Los Angeles-based social practice artist Lorri Deyer spent four weeks with us this summer, creating her "Field Guide to the Unnoticed: Walks through the WMNF." The public is invited to contribute their own observations on her residency website. Berlin-born sculptor and industrial designer Quinn Morrisette is now in residence and has begun his large-scale project.

The second year of our Experience/Arts partnership with Grafton County Senior Citizens, funded by Aroha Philanthropies and the Couch Family Foundation, includes four more classes in our fall series: ukulele classes in Haverhill and Lebanon, story telling in Plymouth and creative movement in Littleton. There are still spaces left in the creative movement class, and you can join the waiting list for the other classes. Learn about these, and the AVA Gallery exhibit of work by our "Photographing Nature" class in Lebanon here.
