HAYC3 Unveils Hoosick Barn Quilt Snowmen Project and Map
HOOSICK FALLS, NY On Saturday, January 10, 2015, HAYC3 presents the Hoosick Barn Quilt Snowmen Project with the installation of 22 handpainted wooden snowmen. They will be on display throughout the village of Hoosick Falls January 10 through the end of February.
The project was created by the HAYC3 Artist Guild in partnership with the Hoosick Falls Central School Wood II class during the past three months in designing and painting the wooden shapes-making them come to life - each with its own personality and a barn quilt painted on it.
"HAYC3 is an organization dedicated to rural revival through art and community," said Aelish Nealon, Executive Director. "Creating opportunities for community members to come together in a relaxed environment while creating art that will enhance the community, is a natural and prideful part of that revival process."
A free trail map with locations of all the snowmen will be available starting at 9:00am (during the Health & Wellness Expo) at the HAYC3 Armory located at 80 Church Street, Hoosick Falls, NY.

Arts in Town
The arts in Hoosick Falls began with the discovery of Grandma Moses' paintings in 1938 in a drugstore window (today--Upsy Daisy and Bagel Shop) on John Street by art collector Louis J. Caldor. Grandma Moses captured the spirit and memorialized Hoosick's scenic countryside in her paintings. Today, that same beauty and tranquility acknowledged by Grandma Moses has inspired internationally and nationally recognized artists to Hoosick, which they now call home.
Hoosick embraces the arts community, and recognizes the important role it has to play in articulating the identity of Hoosick, as well as the cultural and economic benefits that arts bring.
