The Huntington Arts Council, in collaboration with our neighbors The Huntington Historical Society, invites artists to participate inInterpretive Sights: Art in Facts. Interpretive Sightswill seek to tie together the relationship between art and history through direct inspiration of select artifacts and historical documents representing Huntington’s storied history. Works should create new experiences of the archival material through various media and techniques. Entries will draw inspiration directly from one chosen object (per work) of the six selected from the Huntington Historical Society’s Collections. Images and descriptions of the artifacts are detailed below.For more information on the jurors, download bios here.
