Tour of Art on the Trails Scheduled for this Wednesday at 6 pm

Installations, Part II

Hadley Horner, Spheres

On Friday, during a respite from the many weeks of spring rain, the second phase of installations took place at Beals Preserve.

The busy day included Hadley Horner wrapping trees with colorful yarn and building Spheres in the upper meadow.

Lydia Musco, Hug 14
Lydia Musco, Hug 14

Lydia Musco, with the help of her husband Josh, built the extraordinary Hug 14. Musco’s work had to be constructed on site. Hundreds of pounds of custom cast slabs of concrete were brought deep into the woods in a trailer, unwrapped, and layered in an exacting order.

In another part of the woods, Greg Barry installed Heartwood, Crystal Blanchflower hung Avalonia in the trees by Ice Pond and Aneliese Ruggles installed the window.

We can’t wait to share these works with visitors on Wednesday.
