Pacem in Terris To Host Virtual Youth Art Exhibit

Pacem in Terris is continuing their annual Visionary Peace Youth Art Exhibition -- with a virtual gallery! If you work with children or know others who would be interested in participating, please share this information.

Deadline extended to August 31, 2020!


Youth in Grades K-12 are invited to CREATE ART by painting or drawing images that answer the questions: What does peace look like? What does peace mean to you? 

These “Visions of a Peaceful World” will be displayed in an online gallery (take a look at last year’s submissions here). A number of pieces will be selected and framed to join their Traveling Peace Youth Art Exhibition, which goes on display at various locations throughout the state, including a scheduled exhibit at The Grand Opera House in downtown Wilmington!


Here are the general guidelines:

  • Artwork can be created on any type of paper or canvas, any size up to 12” x 16”
  • Each piece must be accompanied by a 1-3 sentence statement describing the artist’s vision.
  • The artist’s name, age, group, and statement should be written on a separate paper (index card) and attached to the artwork by paper clip.

Your organization will be recognized in the gallery. They will accept up to 30 pieces per site. Include contact information for a teacher/counselor to receive future updates about the exhibition, and coordinate artwork pickup and returns at the end of the year. 

To submit your artwork, or ask any further questions, please contact Carolyn Bitzer at

Unveiling Augusta – ART on the River in Milford

Milford is filled with amazing arts and culture opportunities, with more populating this lovely town each year. Here’s one more to enjoy. The Art on the River Tour (ART) Project will unveil six sculptures on Sunday, June 9, from 3:00-5:00 p.m. at the Joan and Sudler Lofland's Vinyard Ship Building Site, 6 Columbia Street in Milford.

The featured sculptures are Phase 1 of the public art project which features 4-foot sculptures of the classic yacht Augusta built by the Vinyard Ship Building Yard in 1927. The sculptures will be displayed permanently along the Mispillion River and throughout downtown Milford over the next 3 years. A total of 18 sculptures (6 per year) is the goal of the project’s organizers.

The artists were commissioned to create based on the theme "River Town. Art Town. Home Town". Five of the six boats were created by Anne Jenkins, David Rule and Cathy Walls, and one was decorated with mosaic tile by Scott & Gail Angelucci — all Milford professional artists — with assistance by Milford High School students Ann McGehrin, Evelyn Orta, Carlo Rodriguez and Kim McKinney.

The unveiling will be followed by a meet-the-artists reception, and the original, fully renovated Augusta will be at the dock for tours. Tickets are $10 adult, $5 children under 13 at a maximum of $25 per family. Tickets are limited and are available at the DMI office, 115B North Walnut Street, Milford.
