RyesAbove Public Art Project
The Rye Arts Center, in collaboration with The Rotary Club of Rye, is delighted to announce the unveiling of “Rye’sAbove,” the annual captivating public art project and fundraiser. The unveiling event, which will take place on the Village Green in Rye, promises to be a spectacular celebration of creativity and community spirit.
Rye’sAbove is a collaborative initiative led by The Rotary Club of Rye and The Rye Arts Center, aimed at uplifting the community through the arts while supporting educational programs in the region. This innovative project invites artists to contribute to creativity that serves as a catalyst for metamorphosis within our community.
The project will feature large and medium-sized aluminum butterflies, as well as small steel butterflies, which participating artists will transform into unique works of art. These mesmerizing sculptures will be displayed throughout the summer, beginning in mid-May 2024, in various locations across Rye, NY. The highlight of the initiative will be an auction in the fall, where these extraordinary butterflies will be available for purchase.
Net proceeds from the auction and sponsorships for Rye’sAbove will be dedicated to supporting educational programs and scholarships for students in the local area. The project aims to foster artistic expression and contribute to the growth and development of the community’s cultural landscape.
