STASH Installs Today

If you happen to be in Union Square, Somerville today - keep your eyes open and remember to look up - an installation is happening to a tree in the area outside SCATV. 

Several large bundles will be hidden in the full foliage of September and then exposed in October when the leaves drop. Created from the donated items of people who identify with the compulsive acquisition of “stuff”, they question our need for collecting material things, why it is sometimes kept secret, and what our motivations are. The installation will create an opportunity to look at ourselves through our things, as well as present an unexpected encounter, for anyone walking by to see for themselves. 

You can read more about the project STASH here, here and here

Visit my blog often for updates on this and several other happenings this fall.

This program is supported in part by the Somerville Arts Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
A big THANKS to Tony LaFuente for his help with the install.
