Uniquely Quabbin Magazine Pre-Party
Thursday, May 12, from 5:30 - 8:00 pm. This event will feature the series of town map paintings by local artist Casey Williams.
On Thursday, May 12, from 5:30-8:00 pm, local artist Casey Williams will be hosting a pre-party to celebrate the launch of Uniquely Quabbin, which is a new free magazine coming to the towns of the Quabbin region mid-May.
The very first issue of the magazine will hit the streets as an insert in the Athol Daily News and will be published 3 times a year: May, September, and February. An additional several thousand copies will be printed to serve those towns in which the Athol Daily News does not circulate.
Over a dozen historical societies, museums, libraries, and art centers have been invited to serve as distribution sites for the magazine during the “Uniquely Quabbin Weekend,” which is scheduled for the following week (May 19 – 22). Also scheduled during the launch are special exhibits, readings, and musical performances.
Casey Williams was commissioned by the magazine project to create a symbolic map painting of each town in the region of North and South Quabbin. The artwork will be utilized among the pages of the May issue, and prints of the maps will be given as thank yous to each participating site.
This event invites all involved in the magazine, all involved in the launch, and the general public, to create synergy around and through this new magazine.
*Original map paintings will be on display*
