Christopher Frost: Hespera Stones on the New England Trail
Exploring the role of art in the New England landscape, sculptor Christopher Frost’s Hespera Stones illuminate shaded paths along the New England National Scenic Trail (NET) in Skinner State Park in Hadley, Massachusetts. Each of the three solar-powered stones glows with a stanza of Emily Dickinson’s “The Mountains Stood In Haze.”
Frost’s previous work includes art in national and state parks in Massachusetts, including Boston National Historical Park, Bradley Palmer State Park and Maudslay State Park. In consultation with park and trail managers at the Appalachian Mountain Club, Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and the National Park Service, Frost chose the scenic Holyoke Range as the site for the installation.
The project was funded by the Fund for the Arts, a restricted fund of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible by generous support from anonymous donors. One of the goals for the NET is to be a national model for using art in the interpretation of National Scenic Trails. The 215-mile, volunteer-maintained New England Trail was designated as a National Scenic Trail in Connecticut and Massachusetts in 2009.
The White Mountain National Forest is partnering with the Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire to continue the Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program begun in 2011 as part of the Weeks Centennial Celebration. We are now seeking applications from interested artists in all media for 2015, the 5th year of the program. Application deadline is April 17, 2015. [MORE]
