The Sutton Museum is celebrating its 8th edition of Pumpkin'Art. The museum has been inviting students from Sutton's Elementary School as well as all of Sutton's teenagers and adults to participate in this annual fall activity since 2009.
For this year's edition the museum is collaborating with the Social Pediatrics Community "Main dans la main" of Brome-Missisquoi, in order to create an expanded event which will take place from October 22nd to 31st, Halloween Eve. Inspired by the exhibit "Mad Dog" Vachon, the theme for this event is "Wicked Pumpkins"! The event will kick off at the Sutton Museum and then expand to various other municipalities in the region.
This year we are hoping for the participation of not only the students from Sutton Elementary, but from the various primary and secondary schools, as well as all adults from Brome-Missisquoi who would like to participate in the Pumpkin Decoration Contest. The decorated pumpkins will be exhibited at the Sutton Museum for the final two weekends of October, from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Visitors to the museum are encouraged to judge the decorated pumpkins from the different age categories.
