On August 6th, WestwoodWinds Community Band performed a concert in conjunction with a Westwood Artists exhibition at the Westwood High School entitled “Art & Soul”. The collaborative event threw a spotlight on artists of all kinds in the community. The concert, entitled “Where the Wild Things Are,” featured its usual eclectic blend of familiar pieces relating to animals. Young children, especially, enjoyed “Peter and the Wolf” with narration by Westwood Media Director, Melinda Garfield.

During the concert, Westwood Artists provided materials to children and adults alike to make their own paper quilt square of their favorite animal. Students in Westwood Recreation 2D summer art classes and Westwood Library’s summer Monday Craft Program also contributed to this project.

Westwood Artists combined the animal images to create a 64-paneled community paper quilt. It has been installed at their permanent gallery located at the Westwood Media Center at 15 Perwal Street in Westwood.
