The Hooked Again Creative Challenge

In Art, Chester CT Events on February 22, 2015 at 10:09 am

It started with these little sealed envelopes of sample hooks, eyes, handles and assorted hardware from the M.S. Brooks & Sons factory that used to operate in Chester.

And now, this Saturday, April 11, you can see what 45 artists, designers, sculptors, etc. have made with the three envelopes they chose. It’s the Chester Historical Society’s fifth creative challenge linking Chester history and art.
