A Celebration of Creativity and Sustainability

Bittersweet Orb Cave

Orleans Eco Art is an innovative community art initiative led by Creative Cape Cod, inviting artists and community members from Orleans to merge their creativity with environmental consciousness. This year-long festival of eco-friendly artistry aims to transform our town into a living gallery, showcasing the beautiful intersection of nature and creativity through stunning on-site installations and events.

 

Our Vision

We believe in the transformative power of art to inspire change and deepen our connection to the environment. Orleans Eco Art is more than just a project; it is a movement towards blending eco-consciousness with artistic expression. Our mission is to cultivate a community that values sustainability as much as it does creativity, creating a lasting impact that extends beyond Orleans.

Earth Day Kickoff

Join us on Sunday April 21, 2024 from 1;00 – 4:00 PM on the Village Green in Orleans for our Earth Day extravaganza, marking the official launch of the Orleans Eco Art initiative. This event is the starting point of a year filled with creativity, community engagement, and conservation efforts. Expect to participate in interactive workshops, engage in a community-wide eco-art project, and join thought-provoking discussions on how we can integrate sustainability with art to create a brighter future.

Inclusive Programming for Everyone

Orleans Eco Art is committed to inclusivity, offering a broad array of programming designed to welcome every member of our community. Some of the topics we are planning to include in our classes and events include:

  • Safe Interaction with Invasive Species: Learn how to use invasive species in your art without negatively impacting our ecosystems.

  • Fiber and Fabric Content Identification: Discover techniques to identify and select biodegradable textiles, turning scrap fabrics into beautiful, usable art supplies.

  • Biodegradable Material Art Techniques: Master the skill of crafting with materials that naturally decompose, leaving a positive mark on the earth.

Community-Wide Art Installations

Our vision includes hosting a series of temporary eco-artworks created by you, the community, transforming Orleans into a canvas that showcases our dedication to the planet. These installations will not only beautify our town but also symbolize our collective commitment to a sustainable future.
