deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum
fostering the exploration of contemporary sculpture and art

A is for Andre!

Do you know your A, B, C’s of deCordova? Today we start with A, for Carl Andre! Here we see, Sphinges. Made in 2014 and of sixteen units of Eastern Pine, Sphinges displays the organic beauty of raw material and greets visitors right when they enter the park. Find out more about the piece here: http://bit.ly/1oGaa6c

Driving into deCordova this morning, you may have wondered, “What is that new piece of sculpture brimming with bright colors and blowing in the wind?” Why it is the newest installation from week 2 of the hive, of course! The hive is deCordova’s own summer camp where kids think and make BIG things together. Themed week-long sessions inspired by contemporary art and the landscape connect kids to real world ideas, unbounded creativity, and inspiring innovation.

Session 2, Flora, Fauna, and Fakes, is underway and campers are finding inspiration from our Platform 13 artist Roberley Bell. Check out photos from Session 1!

Joseph Wheelwright’s sculpture is moving to a new location in the Sculpture Park - where do you think it will end up? By the way he’s blindfolded during the move, it seems like his new location will be a surprise even to “Listening Stone" himself…
