 … an outdoor art installation in the Hapgood Wright Town Forest. This collaborative project with the Concord Department of Natural Resources celebrates all the arts. Sculpture, poetry, dance, and dramatic readings encourage the intersection of art, nature, and community in a historic natural setting.

The arts offer a doorway for exploring our relationship with nature and place.  An exhibit map will guide you through the exhibit at your own pace…

Word Wraps located on the Red Dot trail, parallel to Walden street, near parking lot entrance.
