The Goshen Art League’s fourth annual Painted Trotters public art event features 26 two-sided trotters throughout the Village of Goshen.
They will be on display until mid-September when they will be auctioned off in the community.
Normally the panted trotters are auctioned at Limoncello’s at the Orange Inn. Now, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the auction will take place online. The time and date have not been released. The proceeds will be split between the artists and the painted trotters program.
“This year is especially poignant,” said Carly Glasse of Illuminate Goshen, the fiscal and producing entity of the Painted Trotters. “Many of our artists had more time than usual to complete these stunning works. But many also overcame obstacles to be able to deliver. And deliver they did! This is a smaller batch of Trotters than usual but the creativity and beauty are extraordinary. Enjoy.”
In the coming weeks, The Chronicle will look to publicize each of the painted trotters the artists whom created them.
The history of the event, as well as the official trotter map, is available at www.trottersofgoshen.com.
