Exploring Perspectives in Art

Taking advantage of some of our many local cultural resources, the Green Art and Advanced Photo classes recently took a field trip to the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum and the Fitchburg Art Museum. It was a great opportunity for our students to explore and enjoy art from a variety of perspectives and applications.

Established in 1950 and located about 35 minutes east of campus in Lincoln, Mass., deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum features a constantly changing 30-acre landscape of large-scale, outdoor, contemporary sculpture, and site-specific installations, as well as rotating exhibits and innovative learning opportunities. With over 20,000 square feet of exhibition space, the Fitchburg Art Museum features
exhibitions from its art historical collections as well as special loan exhibitions focused on regional contemporary art. Collection strengths include 19th Century American Art, American photography, African Art, Greek and Roman Art and Egyptian Art.  It is located in Fitchburg, Mass., just 15 minutes from campus.
