Giant inflatable heads on view at Peddler’s Village

Peddler’s Village in Lahaska has kicked off summer with a display of outdoor art.

Running through June 23, “Art in the Village” features eight large-scale inflatable pieces—giant, vibrantly colorful heads that are part of the “Janis Project” created by internationally known artist Frank Hyder—located throughout the property, as well as reproductions of paintings on view in the galleries of the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, which is the Village’s cultural collaborator for this event.

Pieces from the “Janis Project” were also featured in an exhibition at the Michener Art Museum this past winter.

“Art in the Village”  also includes artistic contributions by artist Alan Lachman, whose gallery is located at Peddler’s Village, and other artists connected to Lahaska.

Also coming up at Peddler’s Village is an Art & Wine Festival on June 22 and 23, featuring al fresco dining, painting activities for adults and children, live entertainment, and wine tasting. Artist Hyder will lead a walk and talk program about his work at 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 22 and on Sunday, June 23.
