Over the next week, Westbrook will get a chance to- John C.L. Morgan
prove how far it has come in its effort to become a destination for the arts.
Several arts groups and creative enterprises that are based in the Dana Warp
Mill will host events and open houses to call attention to their presence and
encourage people to visit. "Westbrook is getting the buzz that artists are
moving out here. The mill is filled with a bunch of painters, photographers,
dancers, an acting company and others. Within the walls of the mill, we are
getting this whole creative economy thing going," said Steve Pennisi, a painter
who is organizing a group art show called "Mill-ieu."
