“Flu,” 2008 by JeeYoung Lee


2020 Theme – DREAMSCAPES

Dreamscapes are visual expressions of the surreal. Free from conscious and clear, controlled thoughts, Dreamscapes place value on the articulation of imaginative visions, dreamlike ideas and the bizarre of the subconscious. Students are challenged to consider the question “what’s on your mind?” and work in teams to create one large-scale installation that brings forth their concept of Dreamscapes.


For inspiration, look to the surrealist artists such as Andre Breton, Jean Arp, Max Ernst, Rene Magritte, Salvador Dali and Leonora Carrington.  Explore doors that lead to different dimensions, hybrid creatures, topsy turvy landscapes, figures or objects that are inside out, trees floating away on balloons, a phantom ping pong game, a phone booth full of bananas, a sea of ladies’ legs, flying fish, underwater elephants and more! Please keep in mind that it is not always necessary to fill every square inch of your allotted space, but more importantly to freely let your concept and materials dictate the final design and placement within the space you have been given.

What is High Art? 
High Art is an annual exhibition showcasing the extraordinary talent and ideas of high school students enrolled in public, private, parochial, alternative, charter or homeschool programs.  This youth exhibition connects teens with artists both past and present, fosters the creation of original artworks, and provides a professional forum for students to voice their own creativity and work collaboratively.


What is installation art?

Installation art uses any material invention to modify the way a space is experienced, and can be either temporary or permanent.  Installation artworks have been constructed in exhibition spaces such as museums and galleries, as well as public and private spaces.  The genre incorporates a broad range of materials, including but not limited to huge, three-dimensional painting/murals, sculpture, poems, and new media such as video, sound, and performance art.

For questions regarding the High Art 2020 exhibition please contact Museum Programs Coordinator & High Art Exhibition Curator, Abby Rovaldi at either 508-222-2644 x15 or arovaldi@attleboroartsmuseum.org.

Team-building through ART/WORK at the Attleboro Arts Museum

Book your group for a session of collaborative creativity!


The Attleboro Arts Museum offers specialized collaborative art-making sessions that include a private gallery tour for groups. Arts educator Sandy Coleman will lead groups through a three-hour workshop in which participants create individual ready-to-hang artworks that can be displayed on their own or combined as a whole to represent the significant creativity that individuals collectively bring. The workshops are geared toward team-building for businesses, organizations, schools and non-profits.


The Attleboro Arts Museum is happy to coordinate with each group on scheduling a team-building collaborative workshop.  Visits will only be scheduled during times when exhibitions are on display in the Museum’s main gallery. Of note: team-building programs are subject to scheduling constraints due to Museum programs, exhibitions and events. Please contact us at least 3-4 weeks in advance for booking a workshop.  An Attleboro Arts Museum staff member will contact you after the receipt of your request form to schedule a brief in-person meeting.


Choose from one of the following projects (includes a brief gallery tour):

  • Decorative Circles within a Square
  • Mini-Magnetic Canvas Collage

These group projects provide collaborative creativity while also encouraging individual expression.  We are all working toward a common goal but we bring different imaginative elements to achieving the goals, which makes the end result unique yet connected.



About Arts Educator, Sandy Coleman:

“I indulge in various forms of art, which gives me great joy. I mostly work in mixed-media collage and create beaded jewelry and handcrafted cards. I also facilitate workshops for groups who want to make collaborative artwork as a way of connecting, team-building and enhancing their spaces with a symbol of their collective creativity. My mission in life is not only to use the gifts I have been given to the fullest extent possible to make art but also to help others tap into their own creativity and its potential for improving their personal as well as professional lives.”

  • Fridays from 5:30-8:30pm                              
  • Sundays from 1-4pm
