The Concord Museum is launching a 2017 celebration of the bicentennial of the birth of Henry David Thoreau, one of America's most thought-provoking writers and thinkers, with a deeply personal exhibition by photographer Abelardo Morell. Walden Four Views| Abelardo Morell will be on exhibit at the Concord Museum from February 10 through August 20, 2017.
Guided and inspired by Henry David Thoreau's journals and his seminal work Walden, Abelardo Morell has made panoramic photographic works that suggest a new perspective from which to look at Walden Pond. Whether by using his "tent-camera" to bring an image of Walden Pond onto the ground or creating a cliche' verre picture of a body of water using ink on glass, Morell envisions the well-known landmark as a place where artistic invention opens up our consideration of the territory.
Walden: Four Views| Abelardo Morell, will be accompanied by broad range of public programming, including workshops and gallery talks.
