Artists and creative community members are encouraged to submit proposals of site-specific artwork for the 2019 Art on the Trails outdoor exhibition, Marking Territory. The exhibition will be installed in the Beals Preserve, Southborough, Massachusetts from June 12 – September 22, 2019. Learn more about juror Shana Dumont Garr.
Theme: Marking Territory
Marking Territory explores the idea that both animals and humans have ways of creating boundaries in their environment in an attempt at creating a safe place. Mark making in art refers to the different lines, patterns, and textures we create in a piece of art. We invite artists to consider how one might mark the environment in a non-permanent way, as their own expression of boundaries.
