Kickoff Event

NEA Big Read Kick-off Event and Mesa Opening Reception
Sat., September 15, 2018; 2:00pm – 4:00pm
Attleboro Arts Museum, 86 Park St., Attleboro

The Attleboro Arts Museum will respond to Carlson’s novel with the mounting of an exhibit entitled Mesa: Tables Constructed with Five Skies Overhead. Five Skies repeatedly spotlights a range of tables: Ronnie Panelli’s well crafted, sky-blue gathering spot; the examination table where a wood sliver is removed; the tables at the Antlers – the best place to eat in town.  Mesa: Tables Constructed with Five Skies Overhead, features original tables created in either two-or three-dimension.  In all cases, the work on view has been built as Ronnie crafted his sky-blue piece – with commitment, care and a personal sense of pride. This event includes performances of poetry from Carpenter Poets of Eastern Massachusetts and officially kicks-off Attleboro’s 2018 NEA Big Read. 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
