Seeking MORE barns along the Longwoods Road between London and Chatham.
If you have a barn and would like to host a
colourful barn quilt block
100 is the goal
Jan 15, 2012. Longwoods Road, ON, Canada: The Longwoods Barn Quilt Trail project seeks hosts with appropriate locations for 60 barn quilts lining an “arts corridor” down the Longwoods Road between Tecumseh’s Monument and the Delaware Speedway.
Selected hosts will allow access for installation and will monitor the barn quilt. If your location is selected by the selection committee, an agreement outlining responsibility and ownership details will be signed. The committee seeks owners of heritage agricultural buildings – barn, corn crib, hog barn, tobacco barn, tobacco kiln – that do not house people. The site must be a neat and attractive setting and close to the highway for good viewing without obstructions. This is art that is meant to be enjoyed by the travelling public. There are no pull-offs and visitors are not encourage to stop on the highway. The information about the barn quilt details is all on-line and in published materials.
Businesses on Longwoods Road who are enthusiastic about this community project are also welcome to sponsor a location. If you would like your agricultural building or business to be considered please contact marysimpson(at)creative-communities.com or (519) 287-3566.
