Symposium Exhibition/Artist Talk: August 25, Sunday, 2:00PM.
This is our eighth annual Symposium in the realization of the “New Art Archeology”. This year the 3-week Symposium will be held from August 4 to August 25 with participation artists Chia-Ming Chang (Taiwan), Kevin Duffy (Arlington MA), Cortni Frecha (Stow MA), Mark Smith (Berlin MA) and Marin Murakoshi (Newton MA, origin Japan). As of last year, we have accomplished 41 sculptures by 26 artists from near and far. This pile of stone which surely will be a New England landmark contains over hundreds pieces of stone. Ever since we started this project, every year audiences have been inquiring how long would it take to accomplish the entire pile. At first, our answer was we anticipated 20 years if we were able to obtain steady funding every year. However, we have found out from the past 8-year experience: 1) Unfortunately the funding is not steady; 2) Fortunately many experienced stone-carving artists have decided to come back and carve more pieces on the pile (this year special Thanks to Chia-Ming Chang, Kevin Duffy and Mark Smith who have come back and carved several pieces on the pile year after year). As a result, we are able to move this monumental project forward steadily. At the completion of the Symposium on August 25, we will hold an Opening Reception with Artists Talk to celebrate our accomplishment. Special Thanks to the Enterprise Bank for co-sponsoring this endeavor.
