Mesa: Tables Constructed with “Five Skies” Overhead

Warning: Use of undefined constant addtofacebook - assumed 'addtofacebook' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/kerrystp/public_html/wp-content/themes/ArtsMuseum/category.php on line 14


The Attleboro Arts Museum presents “Mesa: Tables Constructed with Five Skies Overhead,” an invitational exhibition featuring 3D and 2D tables inspired by the City of Attleboro’s reading of the novel “Five Skies.”  On view from Sept. 11th – 22nd, 2018.




Since 2007, the Attleboro Arts Museum has been an active partner in the Attleboro’s NEA Big Read.  In this National Endowment for the Arts program participants are encouraged to read the same book at the same time – and extend their connection to the chosen text through local arts and culture activities.

This year’s novel, “Five Skies,” is the story of three men working a doomed construction project in the Rocky Mountains of Idaho.

The book repeatedly spotlights a range of tables: character 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

In response,“Mesa: Tables Constructed with Five Skies Overhead,” brings together original expressions from artists working in a range of mediums.  





Exhibition Reception: Saturday, September 15th, 2-4pm. Reservations are appreciated – but not required – by Sept. 13th: 508-222-2644 x10 or


Reception/NEA Big Read Kickoff includes performances of poetry from Carpenter Poets of Eastern MA, live music from Mark Taber, and launches Attleboro’s 2018 NEA Big Read.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Attleboro Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
