With the sale of the orphanage being finalized last week, those who will miss the history of the great old building will be relieved to know that an artistic legacy born in its hallways will live on. Last August, artist and Burlington College alum Abbey Meaker curated
An Order — an exhibit of short-lived installations located in the vacant rooms and hallways of St. Joseph's Orphanage, featuring a variety of local Vermont artists and co-sponsored by Burlington College and Burlington City Arts.
This year, Meaker and
An Order artist Sarah O Donnell have come together to begin
Overnight Projects, an exhibition program, “whose mission is to expand the contemporary art conversation in Vermont by inviting local, national, and international artists to create site-specific installations, performances, and related programming in abandoned, or transitional spaces.”
