Monomoy Orb Project

A Monomoy Community Services Special Event

Looking for an adventure? A keepsake from a favorite vacation? An excuse to get outside? The MONOMOY ORB PROJECT offers all of these and more.  Join locals and visitors of all ages for 

 

The 1st ANNUAL MONOMOY ORB PROJECT

      Beginning early July 2021 through Labor Day, a collection of beautiful, hand-thrown ceramic Orbs designed by local artisan, Susan Dimm Williams, will be secretly scattered at  public spaces, parks, beaches and  nature trails throughout Chatham. All public lands are fair game for finding one of 80 unique, numbered collectibles. 

If you find one, it's yours to keep!

When you find an orb, use the hashtag #monomoyorbproject. Post it on Instagram and tag @monomoycommunityservices

and on Facebook using the tag @monomoyserviceschatham.

 

Be sure to post the number of the orb you found and where you found it!

** If you don't use social media, feel free to shoot us an email at info@monomoy.org with a picture of the orb! **

Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for clues, updates and highlights!

How'd this come to Life?

Chatham resident, Graeme MIlley, came across a remarkable tradition on Block Island, where each summer, incredibly beautiful handblown glass orbs are placed out in the community and surrounding areas to the delight of residents and Island guests.

 

Graeme thought a Chatham version of the Block Island adventure would be a wonderful way to celebrate Chatham and the things we love most about it.

Orbs may be found, in plain view, at any Chatham Open Space or Recreations Area
