AUGUST 3–7, 2020


Week 5 Theme: “Madness isn’t talking to trees–it’s not hearing them when they nod.”* Trees, rocks, even grass are bursting with dynamic life. Campers will tune-in to the elements of nature and notice stories, songs, and even gifts among the seemingly inanimate. Humans and the environment mutually depend on each other. Enhancing the relationship between people and nature through creative communications will benefit all!

* Richard Hardack, Visionary New England catalogue, p. 44

Inspired by the glacial rock left behind tens of thousands of years ago forming the elevation of Alice’s Garden, the sculpted granite head of Joseph Wheelwright’s Listening Stone, and Visionary artist Sam Durant’s bronze Fieldstones in the Museum.

Week 5 Project: Elements of the environment will be in the spotlight as if they were guests on a variety show. Trees will tell tall tales. Rocks will sing in a band. Designed and constructed by campers, family and friends will experience this hive project as part of the audience, on stage, and behind the scenes!
