Franklin County's fifth World's Record will travel Vermont this summer. Vermont Art Council Day was celebrated Sunday, June 25, at the Green Mountain Chew Chew from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
The World's Largest Palette, created by the All Arts Council, St. Albans for the Future, and professional and community artists from Franklin County, was on display outside the VAC tent.
"Having the World's Largest Palette here was wonderful," VAC's Diane Scolaro said. "It drew people in to the Palettes of Vermont exhibit."
In addition to the display of unique palettes from around the state, the Chew Chew featured live music and palette making activities.
The World's Largest Palette made a surprise appearance at the Summer Sounds concert on Sunday evening, backing up the Stockwell Brothers with some folk art of its own.
The World's Largest Palette is sponsored by the Peoples Trust Company, R. J. Fournier, Sticks and Stuff, and Union Bank. It is a project of the All Arts Council and St Albans for the Future. The statewide project is sponsored by Chittenden Bank, Casella Waste Systems, and National Endowment on the Arts, Times Argus, NRG Systems, VermontVacation.com, and Vermont Wood Manufacturers Association, with promotional support from the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing. The local project is sponsored by the All Arts Council and St Albans for the Future with considerable assistance from community partners including BFA-St. Albans, Rene J. Fournier Farm Equipment, Franklin County Regional Chamber of Commerce, New England Central Railroad, People's Trust Company, the St. Albans Historical Museum, Sticks & Stuff, and Union Bank.
