This Week at Denmark Arts Center

A Fun Weekend Here at DAC...

The summer is high, and the work is long here at the DAC. Play rehearsals have taken the place of (kind of) lazy afternoons and we have Artists in Residence clammering at the doors, waiting to come in. Only one event is planned for this weekend, but it is a big one - and you would be a fool to miss it. Find out why here.
Also, if you're a town dump regular, you would have noticed that the DAC has commissioned two strange Dutch women to pick through your trash and make it into art. Their residency will come to an end every shortly, but it is highly encouraged that you will decide to lend them a helping hand. They will divulge that they require assistance in splitting and cleaning shards of mica. So, if you could donate an hour here or an hour there - they (and we!) would surely appreciate it. Give us a call at (207) 452-2412, and we'll love you forever. Volunteers make a non-profit soar, and we're definitely in need.
Our kid's camps registration has come to a close - because they're all full! Film camp is going wonderfully this week, and Mary Bastoni's much awaited Theater camp is just around the corner.

The gallery is open this weekend, Friday through Sunday from 1pm to 4pm. Come by and see what's hanging on the walls!

See you around at the DAC...

Stories from the Past; Sounds from the Future, w/Jeff Beam & Friends
7:30 pm, $10

Join the DAC for a very special night of rare film and live music, as we welcome celebrated Portland musician Jeff Beam to Denmark for the world premiere of a new DAC commission, Stories from the Past; Sounds from the Future. Working closely with Bucksport’s own Northeast Historic Film archives, Beam has selected a handful of silent-film curiosities from throughout New England around which to build an eclectic songspiel. From scenes of blueberry farming in Hiram, to ice harvesting in Machias, via anonymous family tales on the shores of any old Maine lake, these forgotten historical documents provide the perfect foils for Beam’s elegant, evocative scores and songs. So come on down and see Maine like you’ve never seen it before!
NOTE: This screening will be followed by a panel discussion about representations of Maine, Past & Future.

Grand Unveiling of Karpinski/Hendrix Dump Creation

The specifics are yet to be figured, but the grand (and secret!) Denmark Transfer Station Artist Residency will be unveiled this coming Thursday. Either in the DAC or at the dump, the event will be black tie with champagne. Look forward to an email coming soon..


The DAC now has an online shop for your Dam Jam Merchandise needs. Merchandise was left over after this year's biggest party, and we're giving you the chance to claim what you were not able to.
