Seashore to host CCLCS outdoor art exhibit at Fort Hill

Cape Cod Lighthouse Charter School students fashioned works from wood removed at the site

The Cape Cod National Seashore (CCNS) announced that it will be host to a unique outdoor exhibit at its Fort Hill site in Eastham. According to a release from CCNS, the park will host a public gathering at Fort Hill  for the "Honoring the Natural Habitat at the Fort Hill Historical Landscaping Restoration" exhibit at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 14.

The exhibit features the works of Cape Cod Lighthouse Charter School (CCLCS) students. Under the direction of three of the school's teachers (Deb Greenwood/art, Rebecca Burrill/dance & art and Dick Noyes/history, the students created art from wood removed by CCNS crews during the recent restoration of the open fields at Fort Hill.

The students created works that are both abstract and representative of the Cape's flora and fauna.

The outdoor exhibit, which is installed in a wooded area south of Skiff Hill/Indian Rock, will remain for a year, according to CCNS.

The public is invited to attend next Saturday's celebration. Parking is limited and carpooling to the opening is encouraged.

The project, which was documented for television (future air-dated TBD), was completed with the support of the Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore, the Virginia Wellington Cabot Foundation, Cape Cod Five and the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod.

The Cape Cod Lighthouse Charter School is in Harwich.
