2021 Theme: Mending


The Southborough Open Land Foundation, in collaboration with Southborough Artist Catherine Weber, is pleased to present the 2021 Art On the Trails. The Call for Proposals is closed.

Theme: Mending

We have received 63 proposals for art projects that bring people together and heal. Like Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by joining the pieces with gold, and making the pottery stronger and more valuable in the process, artists are asked to consider how we can repair our fractured world through art and make our community and relationships stronger and more resilient. Read about accepted works here.

The exhibition is installed from June 13 to September 26th, 2021 at the Elaine and Philip Beals Preserve, Southborough, Massachusetts. Download a map of the exhibition here.

The 2021 Art Juror is Sarah Montross, Interim Creative Director and Senior Curator at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum. Learn more about Sarah.
