About The Program

Join Meg Shoup, Arts Outreach Educator at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts on a morning walk to enjoy the beautiful fall color along the Art Trail at the Outdoor Discovery Center. In addition to the natural beauty that presents itself at the ODC, take in the last few weeks of the Create Community: Spaces for Discovery exhibition on the Art Trail – discuss and reflect on the movement that the art creates while standing completely still.

After the walk, guests will create their own cut paper collage inspired by the themes and work of our upcoming gallery artist, Molly Costello! Enjoy this interactive and creativity sparking activity while sipping coffee and engaging in conversation with your peers in a beautiful outdoor setting. Snacks and coffee will be provided to fuel your radical imagination.

Inspired By

Fall Exhibition Fertile Futures by Molly Costello.

Rooted in gratitude, Molly Costello, seeks to nurture and honor the light in each individual through their work. Through bold colors and shimmering stars dotted throughout the canvas, Molly calls us all to dig inside and uncover our own inner glow that is inherently connected with others. These networks of connected brilliance are woven together to form a current of constellations that is within all of our reach. Costello’s work reminds us that constellations not only call us higher to strive for a more just and equitable world, they also remind us of the power of our collective efforts in creating a unified force for good.
