In keeping with the theme of Cotuit's seafaring origins and with the history of Samuel B. Dottridge (builder by trade), we're incorporating a new auction category, nautically named OVERBOARD. Making use of salvaged New England barn boards, we'll be repurposing them with our own special purpose in mind, to help raise funds for our Museums, our Homestead and related programs!
If you're an Artist, Builder, Crafter, or Designer, will you accept the challenge to transform these boards into something useful, decorative, beautiful,... different (nautical or not)?
We supply the boards; you supply the creativity. Use any medium you prefer: paint, stain, glue, nails, or even hardware to embellish them; you know the ropes! Use any technique at your disposal: saw them, plane them, sand them or carve them ...whatever floats your boat! And then donate your masterpiece back to the HSSC for our fundraising auction. With your help, this auction is sure to make a big splash !
So we're calling for all hands on deck! Release your Inner Artist! Channel your Creative Muse! We hope you'll go totally OVERBOARD!
