On Friday, June 5, in celebration of the full moon, The Arts, Hancock County hosted a socially distant art installation on the beach in Bay St. Louis, “Under The Strawberry Moon.”
The second annual “Under the Flower Moon” art gathering was scheduled in May at La Terre Bioregional Center in Kiln, but it was cancelled due to COVID-19. As Governor Reeves announced new guidelines for public gatherings starting June 1, The Arts scrambled to put together a safe outdoor gathering on the beach.
In the midst of a world engulfed in the crises of COVID-19, racial unrest and an incoming tropical storm, it was a chance to pause, breathe and connect in a socially distant way through art.
Fifteen of the Coast’s most creative and innovative artists brought unique installations. Nothing was for sale, an artist’s gift to the community, allowing us to experience something unexpected, celebrate life and appreciate the beauty of our environment and our souls.
