Feeling inspired to create?
Hurricane Sandy took a toll on some of the Dyckman trees, but we
want to make the best of what has been left behind. We have 10,
2-foot logs cut from our roughly 95-year-old European Beech tree
and we are looking for creative individuals to transform our downed
limbs into something inspiring.
Always have the urge to whittle? Desperate to unleash your inner
artist and express your thoughts on the storm? Now is your
opportunity to have a bit of the historic Dyckman landscape at your
In return, participants will be asked to submit photos of their work in
process and of the final work for posting on the Dyckman Farmhouse
Museum Alliance website, facebook page and other social media. All
projects must be completed by June 1, 2013.
Logs are roughly 2 feet long and vary in diameter from 2 to 8 inches. The logs have been out in the weather so
have been subjected to rain, snow, cold, animals etc.
Logs will be distributed on a first-come, first-choice basis.
Participants may be individuals but group projects- such as school or neighborhood groups - are also encouraged.
Upon accepting the free log you will be responsible for transport to your home or studio and any costs associated
with your project.
This is envisioned as a virtual exhibit, so participants will be asked to to sumbit process and final project photos
and/or videos for use by DFMA on various social media.
Projects must be completed by June 1, 2013.
Final projects are yours, but if they are really fabulous we may ask for a temporary loan for display at the
