Providing this venue through which the public can share in that wealth is in the true spirit of community involvement. We’re so thankful SpringHill is being so supportive of this event, and look forward to additional partner projects in the future.”

As coordinating partners, ArtsNashoba has connected with multiple schools throughout the Nashoba Valley in an effort to include as many schools and organizations involved as possible in the exhibit. Director of Sales of the Devens Conference Center Laura Hume noted, “We’ve had ArtsNight here at the hotel previously, but we wanted to refocus our scope to include the youth in our community. Having such a strong connection to youth arts, JulieAnn and ArtsNashoba seemed like to perfect partners to help us achieve our mission!”

Reaching out to every public, private, and parochial school they could find, ArtsNashoba spread the word and invites to all of the superintendents, principals and art teachers from Tyngsboro to Westford to Bolton to Lancaster and beyond. Currently confirmed as participants are Groton Community School, Lawrence Academy/Groton, Oxbow School on Devens, Lura A.
