Current Events

Barn Committee (2)

Island Arts is Working Behind The Scenes

Just as scenes and scenery begin to develop behind the theater curtain, Island Arts is working “behind the scenes” to develop the Homer Knight Barn on Route 2 in North Hero into a County Arts and Education Center for all. For over 30 years, Island Arts has been a visible and active entity of these Lake Champlain Island communities and has promoted and fostered local artists and artisans, and children in the five Grand Isle County schools.
Over these many years the office of Island Arts has been housed in a variety of locations and has long yearned for and envisioned a County Arts and Education Center for school children, youth, families and seniors. On July 1, 2014, artist, sculptor and benefactor Anne M. August made a gift of the Homer Knight Barn to Island Arts. Under the skillful guidance of Ms. August, the barn had been structurally renovated and painted. It was a dream come true.
Since that time much has been taking place “behind the scenes.” A barn committee was formed. A lengthy search took place for an architect, and Vermont Integrated Architecture, P.C., of Middlebury, was hired. Many meetings and discussions have taken place to share ideas for developing the space. Much still remains to be done and it, too, will be “behind the scenes” for awhile yet. Permits must be obtained, there must be an appearance before the Development Review Board, and many necessary steps must be taken and codes met to develop the former farm barn into a beautiful, safe, public building open to all Grand Isle County residents and visitors to these Islands. A phased capital campaign is on-going.
Plans are shaping up to open the Island Arts campus this summer with a production of “Barnum” in cooperation with Village Players. The American musical, winner of 5 Tony Awards, is based on the life of the circus legend P.T. Barnum. The production combines elements of traditional musical theater with the spectacle of the circus.
Are you curious? Like to know more? Like to be a part of this metamorphosis of farm barn into a beautiful Island Arts campus? A call to Island Arts office at 802-372-8889 can be the beginning of answers to your questions. Island Arts office is located downstairs in the North Hero Community Hall, open Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Directors’ meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month, 7 p.m. at North Hero Community Hall. Visitors are always welcome.
