Under Great Grandmother's Tree

South Shore Art Center 

April 27 - May 4, 2018


In celebration of Massachusetts-designated Art Week 2018 (April 27-May 4), South Shore Art Center is hosting "Under Great Grandmother's Tree." This interactive art installation will transform our outdoor sculpture garden into a fairytale woodland by bringing Marcia Ballou's "Fox" to life; and it will include opportunities for visitors to help curate the transformation.




"Under Great Grandmother's Tree" opens on Friday, April 27 and runs the duration of Art Week. Admission is free and open to all community members - with community participation a vital part of the project's iteration.




Community members will enter our brick courtyard to encounter a flowering dogwood strewn with garlands from which super-sized butterflies and dragonflies dart. They will meet the handsome Mr. Fox, standing sentry beneath the tree. And they will be encouraged to enhance the installation.





South Shore Art Center invites the community to help us expand the installation "Under Great Grandmother's Tree" by adding mixed-media flowers in and under the dogwood and by contributing to a collaborative mural by coloring in a large-scale reproduction of a Marcia Ballou collage. Early participants will receive a gift from our seedling lending library, packaged beautifully in ceramic thumbnail pinch pots (while supplies last!).
