Total Eclipse For the Art

April 8 @ 2:00 pm - 7:30 pm

An OPEN BARN event to support artists participating in a residency this summer

Don’t miss seeing the upcoming full-occlusion solar eclipse! The Mad River Valley will be in the perfect path for viewing this celestial event, and Stowell Barn is surrounded by a beautiful unobstructed vista that can’t be beat. Eclipse photographers looking for where to set up? Look no further!

Come check out our recently-restored historic space and enjoy some light snacks, good company, games, a celestially-themed playlist, and a collaborative dance composition demo following the eclipse (no dance experience needed to participate). All are welcome!

This event is open to the public, and will be ‘contribute what you can’ at the door/online. All contributions* will directly support dancers and choreographers participating in the CHIMERA Art Co-Lab hosted by Farmsprung Gatherings in July, 2024.

We are opening the barn doors early this year for this special event: keep in mind that this is Vermont in early April, and the barn is technically 3 season so it may be CHILLY! We have a patio heater for hand warming and are planning for some warm beverages, but check the weather and dress accordingly.

Limited parking on site on the grass, with additional public parking at Common Road.

Remember you shouldn’t look directly at the eclipse—bring protective eye-wear! We will have limited eclipse shades available.

*Please note that financial contributions—although directly benefiting artists—are not tax deductible.

A note re: accessibility–if you have specific needs please alert us ahead of time and we will do everything we can to accommodate you! We have portable ramps to make our barn space and dance floor accessible, but the space is surrounded by grass which can be challenging for wheelchairs.
