And Then There Were None: The Closing of Art on the Trails 2017

Moira Linehan reading her poem, “Finding Solace: Art Trails at Beals Preserve”

It’s been a few weeks since the Closing Ceremony of Art On the Trails: Finding Solace in the Woods. The event was amazing, bringing poets and artists together, on a hot fall day, to walk in the woods and listen to poets who were inspired by the art installed there. We had the opportunity to hear about the history of Beals Preserve from Whitney Beals, to have State Representative Carolyn Dykema expound on the value of open space, and to sell our beautiful poetry chapbook. All of our poets came and read, we celebrated with Prosecco along the route, all the while getting assistance from all of the SOLF volunteers. I could not be more grateful. 

As each of the artists came and deinstalled their work, I felt sad to see them go, but also excited for what next year might bring. Stay tuned for news of Art on the Trails, 2017.

One of the volunteers was Radek Jaster, a Northborough resident and senior at Algonquin Regional High School. Already known for his film work, he came to document the event.  Below is his amazing four minute video.  Enjoy!
