We’ve been taping a series of free art demos featuring projects that are great to make at home using readily available household items.  These are easy and colorful projects to work on with kids – and adults will also enjoy the art-making experience.

Episode #1:
Birds on a Wire – a Mixed Media Project (with Miss Abby)
Episode #2:
Printmaking at Home (with Miss Abby)

We encourage you to share these demos with your friends!

Thanks for watching.  Consider making a donation of any size to support the Attleboro Arts Museum today.

Take a Stand: Voices of the New England Sculptors Association

________________

Take a Stand: Voices of the New England Sculptors Association will switch to an online format.  Online launch date is April 9th on this website.  

________________

Sometimes in an undertone, and occasionally with a bellow, creators of art are surfacing some of the most pressing issues of the day.

This is by no means a new phenomenon. Throughout time artists have realized that their expressions can have great power, impacting the art world and beyond.  However, the current political climate in the US and abroad has led to extreme agitation, prompting contemporary visual artists to address weighty issues – race, gender, politics, and the environment among them. Such work is clearly designed stimulate conversation from a variety of points of view.  

That’s where sculpture comes in.  Sculptural forms need to intrude into space. They are required to be provocative from all angles and force viewers to examine their bumps and hollows. Sculpture makes great demands on a viewer’s eye and mind.

The artists represented in Take a Stand: Voices of the New England Sculptors Association at the Attleboro Arts Museum are wisely using this exhibition to make their voices and opinions heard. Prominent messages include:

  • Gender, pay and workplace equality
  • Roe v. Wade
  • A fractured political landscape
  • Gun control
  • Civil rights and racial disparities
  • Consumer waste
  • Immigration and border patrol
  • Climate change
