Columbus Day at the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum

Established in 1950, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum is the largest park of its kind in New England encompassing 35 acres, 20 miles northwest of Boston. In 2009, deCordova changed its name from deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park to deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum to emphasize its renewed focus on sculpture and to support the institution’s goal of becoming a premier Sculpture Park by 2020. Providing a constantly changing landscape of large-scale, outdoor, modern and contemporary sculpture and site-specific installations, the Sculpture Park hosts more than 60 works, the majority of which are on loan to the Museum. Inside, the Museum features a robust slate of rotating exhibitions and innovative interpretive programming.

Check out the fall exhibitions:
www.decordova.org

If it's a nice day, well check out the sculpture park first -- in case of inclement weather, we'll start and finish inside.

      OK that's great! I hated to be in the house today with job search stuff after seeing the beautiful blue sky when I woke up! I'll put the data in my calendar for Veterans Day! Hope the federal shutdown won't affect that!

    Anyone who wishes to stay and see the interior of the museum should do so -- there will be many who will do that. I can't stay late because of another appointment.
