Media invitation for a pre-screening and photo opportunity:
June 18, 2010
Little Kin Ball Park, Wardsville
On June 18, 2010, the media is invited for a sneak peak at the 30 freshly painted “barn quilts”, the latest craze in rural folk art. One of the 8 foot square murals was painted by young artists from Mosa Central School in the Municipality of Southwest Middlsex Sex.
The young Mosa students are coming to Wardsville Little Kin Park at 9:30 am by bus to view the “Old Country Church” barn quilt that they painstakingly painted. They will learn about the local history of Wardsville, Mr George Ward and the War of 1812. There’s a rumour that there will be ice cream cones.
Thirty eight foot square murals painted by a small community in a few short weeks has been no small task. After the barn quilts have been displayed to the public during the June 18-20, 2010 weekend, they will be installed on carefully selected barns and public meetings for the public to enjoy when they drive through the community.
Wardsville Bicentennial – a tribute to local pioneers and artists – is one of the first events to mark the Bicentennial of the War of 1812-14.
