Cape Cod on-line early coverage of Appearances

Posted on Feb 14, 2012

Town conservationists have an idea to use artistic creativity to increase awareness of the Outer Cape’s fragile plant and animal environment.

In mid-April, the Provincetown Conservation Trust will launch the first Green Arts Festival, “Appearances,” a 10-day art and writing celebration that will focus on ecology and the arrival of spring.

The trust recently announced an open call to artists and writers for ecologically sensitive paintings, photography, poetry, prose, readings, short films, performance art and, particularly, outdoor sculpture installations. The outdoor installations will appear on trust land and other preserved land in Provincetown, festival organizers said.
