Cecil non-profits partner, make Port Deposit Farm an event spaceBy Matt Hooke firstname.lastname@example.org
PORT DEPOSIT-Three local non-profits, the Cecil County Arts Council, Historic Society of Cecil County, and Cecil Land Trust, have partnered to help transform Rock Run Hollow Farm in Port Deposit into a unique events space.
“This is something that we’ve endeavored to do that hasn’t been done before, that I know of, to get the three non-profits at 135 E Main Street work together on a joint project that combines art, history and land preservation, “ Historic Society President Paula Newton said. “I think this kind of a project can be a model for future non-profits.”
The Arts Council invited artists to the space for a Plein Air event on Sunday, to give artists of all kinds the opportunity to create work about the historic space. The land, preserved by the Cecil County Arts Council, is owned by Isaac Rehert, a Baltimore Sun writer whose wife Ingrid Rehert was a renowned artist.
