Decorated sticks popping up around Fairfield

These are some of the sticks decorated for The Studio’s ‘Stick(s) Around’ community art project.

With the surplus of downed trees and yard debris from mother nature, downtown Fairfield and Westport will soon be gifted with a new community art project, “Stick(s) Around.”

The Studio Fairfield recently invited members and friends to decorate hundreds of sticks using paint, yarn, and other materials to turn the debris into art work. The project is intended to surprise walkers by in unexpected places and is part of The Studio’s Random Arts of Kindness program.

The program also includes working in conjunction with Ben’s Bells Newtown, a collaborative arts group whose motto is “be kind,” to produce ceramic chimes with bells that are randomly placed in the community. The Studio will host Ben’s Bells workshops in collaboration with the Newtown project, and will host a camp this summer for children to participate as well.

“We are very excited to share ‘Stick(s) Around’ with our community,” said Priscilla Perotti Igram, who runs The Studio with Christine Orlando “Our hope is that we can spread smiles around town, around the U.S. Maybe people will move sticks to their spring break destinations.“

“One stick has already been taken and will travel to Toronto, Canada, over the holiday weekend,” Orlando said. “We will be tracking the sticks on our Facebook page, facebook.com/TheStudioFairfield, and can not wait to see where they travel to.”
