Kickoff Event

NEA Big Read Kick-off Event and Enormity Opening Reception
Sat., Sept. 14, 2019; 2:00pm – 4:00pm
Attleboro Arts Museum, 86 Park St., Attleboro
(Exhibit continues during normal museum hours through Sat., Sept. 21)

The Attleboro Arts Museum, collaborating with the undergraduate sculpture students from Wheaton’s College Art Department, presents an exhibition of the original 3D forms inspired by Nathaniel Philbrick’s In the Heart of the Sea. Enormity explores concepts of extreme scale, perilousness, or one’s perception of an issue as foul or fundamentally improper. Emerging sculptors interpret the actions of a vengeful whale, the profound struggles between moral code vs. survival and how- despite being surrounded by the seemingly endless angry seas- one fights to carry on.  Sponsored by the Attleboro Arts Museum and the Attleboro Cultural Council. A reservation is requested, but not required. Call the Attleboro Arts Museum at 508-222-2644 x10 or email office@attleboroartsmuseum.org to reserve your space.
