Are You Here? with Artist Jonathan Gitelson

This event last occurred on October 8, 2016, 12—3 pm.

Join us in conversation and sign-making with artist Jonathan Gitelson whose Are You Here? project in deCordova’s 30-acre Sculpture Park is sparking discussion about both billboards and being present. This unique opportunity offers a close-up encounter with a contemporary artist exhibiting at deCordova. Gitelson will engage visitors through dynamic conversation and will offer a chance to create your own artwork to place in your own environment.

The Vermont-based Gitelson’s billboard project, Are You Here? has been featured on highways around New England and New York. With his wry twist on the phrase “You Are Here” found on maps designed to help recreational travelers orient themselves, Gitelson provokes consideration of how present we really are when traveling to new places.

For all ages.
Program will take place rain or shine.

Free with museum admission. Children 12 and under are always free.
