To Be at the Farther Edge
Photographs along the New England Trail /
On view August 28–December 8, 2013
Photographer Barbara Bosworth spent the summer and fall of 2012 hiking sections of the New England National Scenic Trail (NET) as the National Park Service’s first artist-in-residence for the NET. Traveling with her large-format view camera, she created a visual response to the vistas and paths she encountered. This special exhibition features twenty of the artist's photographs displayed at nine different sites – each with its own relationship to the trail – to form a unique exhibition that viewers can experience at their own pace and following their own path. Three of the photographs will be on view at the Mead.

The exhibition and related events are made possible by the National Park Service, in cooperation with the Appalachian Mountain Club and Connecticut Forest & Park Association, and by the Beneski Museum of Natural History at Amherst College, the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, and the Kestrel Land Trust.
