Halloween: Trick or Treat
We will trick or treat, enjoy unique sculptural installations, and build community resilience.
4 or 5 sculptural stations will provide an opportunity for a unique photo opportunity. Candy will be attached to the sculptures so each visitor can have a piece. This event will feature art sculptures designed by islanders. Assorted Island landmarks and institutions will volunteer space.

Sponsorship from AI Booster Club
You have creative license (note: must be child friendly).
This can be taken in any direction – a few examples: the school is a habitat for kids, the forest is a habitat for spiders or racoons, the waterfront is a habitat for seals and seaweed.
Location: Below is a shortlist of public spaces to select from, however, I am open to suggestions for additional parks!
+ Historical Society: pending
+ Old Swimming Hole: pending
+ Jane Cammon: Artists – Dana Ballou and team of teachers
+ Andy's Park: Artist - Candy Anderson
This year, I will not be providing a frame / structure to give artists as much freedom as possible.
1. The sculpture should be illuminated somehow – There will be access to electrical plugs at all locations.
2. The sculpture should be weather resistant.
3. The sculpture should present candy in a creative way. Pinched, stuck, strung, however you can imagine presenting candy safely so kids can easily take a piece or two.
Some of the sculptures will be placed on 10/23, one week prior to Halloween, as a part of Poetry in the Parks.
Poetry in our Parks: Open Mic
Islanders are invited to an evening of poetry, art, and remembrance!
A celebration of the island's enduring legacy, this event will encourage further reflection on resilience and community. The event will center a reverent tone featuring a 'stage' in front of an outdoor statue created for the occasion by multi-generational islander, Miz Candy Anderson!
This event will coincide with the publication of our Poetry in our Parks/Trick or Treat Map.
Poetry in our Parks: Exhibit
(10/23 - 11/01)
An interactive poetry map encouraging folks to explore public spaces and ruminate on the meaning of community resilience, grief integration, and enduring legacy.
The poems will be placed beside / incorporated into the display of sculptures for the week leading up to Halloween.
