Chicamacomico Shakes Project

Chicamacomico Historical Association and Dare County Arts Council have partnered in a new historical art project. Local artists have the unique opportunity to transform history into art. Shakes that were removed from the historic 1911 lifesaving station during a recent restoration project are being painted by local artists and put on display. They will be available for purchase online and in galleries on the Outer Banks.
