HARKERS ISLAND, NC Cape Lookout National Seashore, in partnership with the International Fiber Collaborative (IFC), announces a student art exhibition, Connect with the Rhythms of Nature on the Southern Outer Banks.

The exhibit features over 60 mediums of varying compositions completed by 811 student artists representing 20 public and private schools from around North Carolina.

The main exhibit will be on display at the Harkers Island Visitor Center (131 Charles Street, Harkers Island, NC 28531) from Friday, February 16 through Monday, July 16, 2018. A satellite-exhibition of the art will also be on display at the Beaufort Visitor Information Center (Beaufort Town Hall at 701 Front Street, Beaufort, NC 28516) from March 19 through July 16, 2018, when the park information center reopens for the 2018 season.

The International Fiber Collaborative was founded in 2008 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. They develop and promote community programs that create collaborative opportunities in art and civic engagement that link learning and creativity in the arts to science, math, engineering, and the humanities. Public programming has been a catalyst for creativity in health care facilities, libraries, schools, museums, and other locations.

The IFC is proud of its efforts in engaging others in community art making, as their growth and success signify the degree to which the organization’s purpose/need is affirmed. For more information on the International Fiber Collaboration, checkout their website,
