Who’s At The Point
Color Me Mine
Color Me Mine is a paint your own pottery studio that offers classes, is available to be rented for parties of all kinds, and most importantly, is a fun place to visit anytime and paint! From flowerpots, to wine glasses and everything in between, CMM is fun for all ages. Color Me Mine is also BYOB, so you can carry in Bissell Brothers beer or Cellardoor wine from Thompson’s Point! Come get creative!

Tree of 40 Fruit
Part art, part agricultural preservation, The Tree of 40 Fruit grows over 40 different types of stone fruit including peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, cherries, and almonds. Sculpted through the process of grafting, the trees blossom in variegated tones of pink, crimson, and white in spring— in summer they bear a multitude of fruit. Primarily composed of native and antique stone fruit varieties, the trees are a form of conservation, preserving heirloom stone fruit varieties that are not commercially produced or available. Our four trees can be found in the grassy area between Halo and Brick South and are also displayed on maps distributed in on-site parking lots. Please note that while our trees are healthy, they are large saplings and in a few years will reach the size of the image above.
USM Artist-in-Residence Olof Nordal
We are very excited to install a complex and abstract rock sculpture by visiting Icelandic artist Ólöf Nordal in spring 2020. Her work “deals with Icelandic history and the collective memory of a nation in a critical and analytical way… My artistic research has been focused on the self-identity of a nation in postcolonial times, the origin and the reflection of national motifs in the present and the fragment as a mirror into the past.”
Sunnana Winter Music Festival
One of the first events after Thompson’s Point came under new management, Sunnana Winter Music Festival is a unique experience held in the dead of winter with some of the greatest bands from around the world. Due to the high demand of rentals and further expansions, this event will resume in the next few years.
