THE WORLD'S LARGEST PALETTE
IS FOR SALE
It takes an entire community to pull off a World Record effort such as this one. AAC Chair Dick Harper conceived the project in early 2006. Artists Natalie LaRocque-Bouchard and Alisha LaRocque created the art. Harper, Ray Rose, and the Sticks & Stuff team built it. 532 people painted the community image of a butterfly side at the Maple Festival. Almost 100 more professional and community artists painted the canvas on the obverse side at Open Studio Weekend. That canvas will remain here as a public art exhibit and part of the community heritage.
The World's Largest Palette made its public debut at the 40th annual Vermont Maple Festival in St. Albans, Vermont. About 50,000 visitors saw it.
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.
