Since 2007 the Attleboro Arts Museum has been an active partner in the NEA Big Read: Attleboro.  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. The NEA Big Read broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. 

This year, in collaboration with sculpture students from Wheaton’s College Department of Visual Art and History of Art, the Attleboro Arts Museum presents Enormity – an exhibition of original 3D forms inspired by Nathaniel Philbrick’s bestseller In the Heart of the Sea.

Enormity explores perilousness and overwhelmingly difficult circumstances. Emerging sculptors interpret the actions of a vengeful whale, the profound struggles between moral code vs. survival and how – despite being surrounded by the seemingly endless angry seas – one fights to carry on.

 

NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
