Firehouse Artist Shanties Inspired by Newburyport’s Early Clam Huts
The Firehouse Center for the Arts is partnering with the City of Newburyport to bring even more art to its constituents – this time, outside of its Market Square theater.
Through the construction of waterfront shanties, the Newburyport Arts and Culture Shanties Project will create a centralized artist colony, giving artists a place to both showcase skills and sell handcrafted items.
The shanties will kick off with a “community build day” on June 8th, with the end vision of brightly-hued wooden-planked shanty huts, modeled loosely after Newburyport’s historic clam shacks which lined Joppa Flats in the 1950s. The shanties will reside along the waterfrontView more
