Vote for your favorite at the Maritime Aquarium’s 2015 Festival of Lighthouses!
The 2015 Festival of Lighthouses is up and running at the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, CT (where I am a volunteer Gallery Ambassador, in case readers of this blog don’t know)! This year’s 14th annual exhibit features 22 large models crafted by artists from Connecticut and New York.
You can visit the lighthouse exhibit, which is included with regular admission, through January 18; much like in a juried art show, you cast a vote for the one you like the best. First prize garners $1500, and there are also prizes for second through sixth place. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday, January 21.
They’re all so creative I’d have a hard time choosing which one to give my top vote. So I picked my top picks based on “what I’m into.” They’re below, in no particular order. Some of them feature lights and sound, so I included some video. Enjoy, and don’t forget to visit The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk between now and January 18 to cast your vote!
