Groundbreaking Exhibition with National Exposure
June 1, 2016 - August 31, 2016
During the Summer of 2016 NESA partnered with three National Historic Parks:
SAINT-GAUDENS NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE, CORNISH, NEW HAMPSHIRE
MARSH - BILLINGS - ROCKEFELLER, WOODSTOCK, VERMONT
SPRINGFIELD ARMORY, SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS
For an Outdoor and Indoor Exhibition 2016 is the 100th Anniversary of the National Park System!
The Centennial theme is Find Your Park and it is also the theme of our exhibit. It’s simple to participate. Visit one of the National Parks of New England — be inspired by a park near you. Make sure to also visit the website (lots of great information) www.nps.gov. Maybe a landscape or museum object inspires you. Show your inspiration in a work of any sculptural medium. It can be an existing work or one especially created for this exhibit.
There are 37 national parks and scenic trails in New England — five in Connecticut; five in Maine; nineteen in Massachusetts; two in New Hampshire; four in Rhode Island, and two in Vermont — so they should give you plenty of ideas to spark creativity and thought.
