The Trustees presents New Horizon, an artwork installation and series of happenings by artist Doug Aitken. Untethered from a single location, New Horizon traverses the Massachusetts landscape creating dynamic flashpoints for conversation, music, and assembly. These experiences are composed of a series of live events taking place across the state, all centered around a stunning, reflective hot air balloon and gondola that vividly contrasts with the raw and natural settings of New England. On view at select Trustees properties July 12-28, 2019.

Family Day Art-Making and Interactive Programs

  • Sculpted Reflections: Collaborate with deCordova New England Biennial 2019 artist Chanel Thervil to reflect on and represent your super power though vibrant color, mirrored materials, and bold shapes! Add your unique element to a massive community installation punctuating deCordova’s landscape.
  • Mirrored Moments: Join us in The Grove to capture fleeting moments at the intersections of art and nature. Envision the environment and sculpture in new and surprising ways.
  • Sculpture Discovery Quest: Solve the series of clues to explore, engage with, and learn about the artworks in the Park. Receive stamps at each sculpture you discover.
