Call for Art
The Town of Concord seeks a temporary art installation to creatively interpret the ways in which people have struggled for the fight for freedom through time in this community.
The site for this installation is one with historic significance.
Thoreau’s abolitionist thinking was greatly influenced by the leadership of the women in town who were members of The Concord Female Anti-Slavery Society, including his two sisters and mother. These women determined to do their part to right the wrong of enslavement.
Susan Garrison’s daughter, Ellen, grew up free in the town of Concord.
This project strives to spark new conversations amongst residents and visitors to town about what freedom and independence mean as we head into the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution.
