The Umbrella Arts Center - Art Ramble 2022 "In the Balance"

About The Art Ramble: The Art Ramble is a temporary outdoor public art installation sited around the Fairyland Pond in the Hapgood Wright Town Forest, in collaboration with the Concord Natural Resources Division. For the exhibition, “ In the Balance,” we are seeking dynamic artworks that express a striving to regain balance with their surroundings. How does the imbalance produced by climate change generate new directions, migrations, contortions, orientations? How can we bridge the growing chasm between the loss of habitat, and life’s persistence? Artwork can reflect various types of knowing: scientific, kinetic, kinesthetic, aesthetic, Indigenous, or a combination. Please consider any and all angles and perspectives. The environment is all around us. Artwork need not be at eye level—though all work must be fully visible from the path. We will be looking for a mix of scale, media and perspective, as well as work that is site-specific and responsive to the environment. All media, including sound installation (via QR code) and performance will be considered. BIPOC and artists of all backgrounds and identities are encouraged to apply.
