The Phillips’ Mill Community Association in Solebury has unveiled a vibrant new website that was designed to shine a spotlight on the arts and cultural heritage of Bucks County, as well as its own revered history and mission.
In addition to promoting all of the events, exhibitions and programs happening at or sponsored by Phillips’ Mill, the new website will serve as a platform for local artists to be seen and heard.
During the coronavirus pandemic, Phillips’ Mill launched a series of virtual “art talk” shows, with guests ranging from playwrights to painters, curators to educators. These popular Sunday afternoon conversations are slated to continue twice a month, providing great content to share across all communications platforms.
Above all else, the new website was designed to showcase the art itself. Visitors will find the website to be extremely visual and easy to navigate, yet full of fascinating stories about local artists.
“The mill is so many things to so many people — a historic building, a welcoming community, a prestigious art show that has become a Bucks County tradition — and the new website conveys all of that, and more. We believe that everyone should have access to the arts, and the chance to explore their own creativity in a welcoming space,” said John McDevitt, president of the board, Phillips’ Mill Community Association.
The contemporary design of the new website makes it easier to communicate to a broader audience.
“We wanted to share the story of Phillips’ Mill with more people. Our community association is dedicated to preserving a historic site as well as promoting the arts. It’s important for the region, not just our membership, to maintain the building and the tradition of Bucks County arts,” added McDevitt.
Phillips’ Mill plans to update the site regularly with new artwork, more artist spotlights and other engaging content.
“The website will serve as a resource to our community, as well as a stunning showcase of beautiful artwork,” he said.
